Conference Information

This is a special year for CSER. It is its 15th anniversary! Our CSER team has worked diligently to make your experience at the conference memorable and enjoyable. You will have an opportunity to mix and mingle, renew old acquaintances, and make new ones. You will meet researchers from all walks of life – academia, industry, and government. Over 80 presentations from ten different countries will be made at the conference.

Systems engineering is undergoing a fundamental transformation to meet the challenges posed by complex systems of the 21st century. In large part, this transformation is being fueled by technology enabled disciplinary convergence. Accordingly, we chose the theme of CSER 2017 to be “Disciplinary 
Convergence: Implications for Systems Engineering Research.”
