Call For Papers

INCOSE UK are inviting individuals and organisations to submit papers to be delivered at ASEC 2021.

The theme for this year’s ASEC is “Creating Stability in Uncertain Times”. Within this we will be exploring the following subthemes:

  1. Embracing Change and Transformation
  2. Building Resilient Organisations
  3. Developing Technical Skills for the Future
  4. Reflection on Best Practice in Unusual Circumstances

However, we are open to proposals that do not necessarily fall within a rigid theme, and are keen to accept papers based around a variety of interesting applications in Systems Engineering. All papers must be able to fill a 40-minute presentation timeslot, and should include a five-minute window to allow presenters to answer any questions from their audience.

As well as making all papers and presentations available on our website, we will once again be publishing a formal paper copy of the Proceedings. All papers, therefore, must use the INCOSE UK paper template, which will be provided to all authors.
