INCOSE Systems Engineering and Architecting Doctoral Student Network
(SEANET) 2012 Workshop 



INCOSE seeks to foster and accelerate doctoral research in the field of systems engineering, and one means to do this is by connecting student researchers through a network.  The purpose of SEANET is to advance systems engineering research by providing a collegial support network, research resources, and industry contacts that will enable the completion of doctoral dissertations related to systems engineering.  The INCOSE SEANET invited current and soon-to-begin doctoral students to participate in a 1-day pre-conference workshop during CSER 2012 conference in St. Louis, MO.


The SEANET Workshop featured speakers, panel sessions, and working sessions on the process of completing doctoral education and research.
Date: Monday, March 19, 2012
Time: 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM (doctoral workshop)

WORKSHOP: Registration Information

Students are encouraged to discuss their interest in participating with their academic advisor.  Students are expected to have their own funds for travel costs.  There is a $25.00 registration fee for attending the workshop.  As space is limited, we ask interested students to register via the CSER registration site ( If you are currently registered for the CSER conference and would like to attend the workshop please email before registering.


Students are not required to attend the conference to participate in the workshop.  


OPTIONAL: Student Research Posters

We encourage doctoral students to create a research poster to describe their work, and present the poster during the social event the evening of March 20th. During this event, students should make themselves available near their poster to discuss the research with attendees at the social event – including leaders from government, industry, and academia.   If you plan to exhibit a poster, send an email to no later than March 1st, 2012.


Guidelines for Poster submission:

Students should design their posters based on the following guidelines:

1.     Posters should be formatted to approximately 30x40 size, or A0.  Posters may describe completed research or work that is underway.  The poster may represent any aspect of the researcher’s work, proposal, theoretical framework, methodology, findings, etc.   
2.     Participants should not depend on laptops for their poster presentation.  The message should be self-contained in the poster.
3.     Posters should be printed and brought with you. Push pins will be provided to attach the posters to the panel or board.
