  • SoS System Engineering
  • Systems Engineering Interoperability Best Practices
  • Agility & Incremental Commitment Spiral Model
  • Science of Laws in System Engineering
  • Big Data Visualization of Molecular Structure
  • Big Data Analytics Visualizations of Uncertainties
  • and MORE

This year, we are also partnering with The Science of Laws Institute on Lawmaking with Systems Engineering Methodologies: How Systems Engineering tools and techniques can be applied to the creation and optimization of the laws of government. To present at this track will require a paper. For details, see the following:

Additional related topics are still in development and welcome. The following PRELIMINARY agenda has being developed, with a more detailed agenda with topics and presenters to be available by the end of September 2017.
