Ice Breaker Reception

In the land of pineapple and plumeria, be sure to share the aloha spirit at the Ice Breaker Reception. Visit exhibitor booths while enjoying pupus (appetizers) and tropical beverages. The Ice Breaker provides your opportunity to gather information in a relaxed Hawaiian setting. Perfectly timed between Monday Symposium sessions and an evening stroll in Waikiki, the Ice Breaker is the place to be to meet and mingle.

Certification Luncheon

Tuesday, July 18 1215 – 1315

The INCOSE SEP Luncheon is a test-free zone … if you want it to be. INCOSE-Certified ASEPs, CSEPs, and ESEPs are invited to eat lunch and chat with their fellow Systems Engineering Professionals. There will be a few minutes of speaking by the Certification Program leaders, who will introduce an optional activity to be performed during the break time. Past activities have included huge word searches, the game Charty Party (like Cards Against Humanity but with graphs), and advocacy for which animal would make the best systems engineer and why. Come to meet your fellow SEPs and talk about a topic of your choice or one that we offer to you.

Royal Hawaiian Luau
(Sign up required)

Wednesday, July 19 1900 - 2130
2259 Kalākaua Ave, Honolulu, HI

Join us at a special evening for INCOSE, a private luau at the only remaining Waikiki Beach luau location. The Royal Hawaiian Resort is located on sacred grounds that were once the playground of Hawaiian royalty. In ancient times the Hawaiian people came together to celebrate momentous occasions. These gatherings were called Ahaaina (which translates to “gathering for a meal”). Today, we call it a Luau, a feast of food, song and hula. INCOSE will be treated to a modern yet timeless Ahaaina to honor the land’s majestic history and the Royal Hawaiian’s heritage. Celebrate with us!

Aloha Lunch

Thursday, July 20 1330 - 1500

This event is the moment for the final networking, exchange of business cards, arrangements for the next meeting, or just a relaxing respite at the end of the symposium.
