The INCOSE Western Chapters of the United States invite you to participate in the 2nd Annual International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) Western States Regional Conference (WSRC2019) at Loyola Marymount University (LMU), Los Angeles, California.



September 13-15, 2019


Loyola Marymount University (LMU), Los Angeles, California

Systems Engineering Relevance: Time for a Sea Change!  

The Future State of Systems Engineering, according to the INCOSE Vision 2025, will make significant strides in meeting the challenges and needs of the global environment, human and societal needs, policy and business challenges, as well as the technologies that underlie systems.  Its relevance and influence will go beyond traditional aerospace and defense systems and extend into the broader realm of engineered, natural and social systems. 

WSRC2019 has tracks being formed to address SE Application to Healthcare and Medical Devices and SE in Large Observatories being developed to explore the farthest reaches of the universe. 

Submit your abstracts to explore other traditional and non-traditional areas that benefit or struggle with the application of Systems Engineering.  The call for proposals is now out.  See the Programs link.  Check back often for the latest.

WSRC2019 is for the entire western region of the United States community – not just INCOSE members and not just systems engineers.  Our community is connected by our shared interest in the successful advance of systems vital to our regional and global prosperity.

WSRC2019 will feature an INCOSE SE Professional Development Day (SE PDD).  The SE PDD will be a virtual extension of the conference, with the featured sessions broadcast from LMU to several satellite sites on Saturday the 14th of September. 

Explore the theme and the topics for the WSRC 2019. We invite you to save the date 13-15 September 2019 for the WSRC2019 Conference.


The WSRC 2019 is proud to team with the Renaissance Hotel Los Angeles Airport.  Reserve your room before August 15, 2019 for the conference rate of $139 a night, at this link:
