Why should you attend?
Learn something new that you can use on the job!
The technical program is filled with keynotes, tutorials, presentations, and panels that address the most relevant topics in systems engineering. Come prepared with tough questions to ask our speakers and plan to bring your newfound knowledge back to the office when you return.
Hear the latest announcements from our exhibitors!
Our exhibit hall acts as the central point for networking during the refreshment breaks throughout the conference, and provides an unparalleled opportunity to meet the exhibitors and discover their latest products and announcements. It can be hard to keep up-to-date with developments in SE throughout the year, so this provides a unique opportunity to gain insights on the latest thinking and tool support for MBSE, and other topics.
Gain new outlooks and be inspired!
The convocation of systems engineering includes many forward looking thought-leaders who may offer just the motivation you need to read an new book or learn more about new methods that will benefit you in your daily life, both personally and professionally.
Roll up your sleeves and interact with other participants!
The symposium also offers opportunities, such as the Mentor Connection and Practitioners Challenge, to ensure that your days in Edinburgh include activities that will build and exercise your SE skills. We also intend to hold a series of “Fringe” events, providing a less formal space for delegates to exchange ideas, and gain inspiration from each other, through facilitated “unconference” sessions.
First-time attendees in particular should consider participating in the Mentor Connection and the Practitioners Challenge, as well as attending the SE101 track to learn about the building blocks of the discipline.
Expand your network of colleagues in the systems engineering community!
New questions arise every day on the job. Consider how great it could be to pick up the phone, or send an email, to ask a colleague with similar experiences how they have addressed the same challenge.
