Incorporating findings from cognitive science, psychology, practical experience, and best practices from the scholarship of teaching and learning, this presentation offers a number of guidelines for making your public presentations, especially ones using slides, better.

Over the course of the year, INCOSE-LA hosts a series of engaging events for the systems engineering community. See our Roadmap for these events, which include conferences, speaker meetings, tutorials, and workshops. So, don't miss out on these opportunities!

We accommodate two different types of Conferences: Conference on Systems Engineering Research (CSER) and mini-conferences. CSER is our biggest conference event, bringing together practioners and researchers from all around the world to one central location to voice their thoughts and ideas on the subject of systems engineering. CSER subjects can range from system architectures to systems of systems. On the other end of the spectrum, mini-conferences are an abbreviated version of CSER. We host intimate one-day mini-conference events, which include a few keynote speakers, technical presentations, and a panel discussion.

Additionally, we offer Speaker Meetings, Tutorials, and Workshops. Each product is designed for a specific purpose and audience. Speaker Meetings are dynamic, educational technical presentations that can be broadcast through the web to reach a broader audience. Tutorials are skill-enhancing sessions for the participating members, who wish to expand their current systems engineering skill set. Workshops are intense sessions designed to reinforce the methods and concepts of systems engineering and empower the creative minds to transform the gained systems engineering knowledge into practice.
