Press release from: INCOSE

From the 15th until 19th of June 2008, the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) will organise the 18th Annual INCOSE International Symposium (IS2008) in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The theme of IS2008 is „Systems Engineering for the Planet”, addressing the expanding scope of engineering application and responsibility. Beside the paper tracks and panels discussions as an example of this expanding scope are addressed in specific sub-themes that focus on the application of engineering in complex consumer and industrial systems, transportation, water management and embedded systems. These special tracks include specific paper presentations, an off-site tour and a concluding panel discussion.

Gerald E. Galloway, Jr., P.E., Ph.D., will present a paper during the water management theme track with the title “Large Scale Water System Engineering in the US: Successes and Challenges” and chair the panel discussion. He is Glenn L Martin Institute Professor of Engineering at the University of Maryland and has served as a Presidential appointee to the Mississippi River Commission and the American Heritage Rivers Advisory Committee and as Secretary of the U.S. Section of the Canada-U.S. International Joint Commission. In 1994, he was assigned to the White House to lead a committee in assessing the causes of the 1993 Mississippi River Flood. In 2002 and 2005, he served as General Chairman of the American Water Resources Association National Water Policy Dialogues. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering.

Furthermore the presentations given are from experts joining from Europe, America, Asia and Australia. The paper presentation will cover the innovation in architecture, risk and requirement management, process improvement, cost and value engineering of electric, electronic, aerospace and defence and other well known sectors. The program attracts professionals, researchers and educators from industry, government and academia. During the event tool developer and universities can be visited in the exhibition hall.

Dr. Shun-Jie Ji from the Tamkang University in Taiwan and Ana Quiros from Eco Gobal in Costa Rica are two out of four keynote speakers during the symposium.

Dr. Shun-Jie Ji will deliver a speech about “The Future of Technology and Humanity: Exploring Vision and Action”. He is an Assistant Professor in the Graduate Institute of Futures Studies at Tamkang University. He received his Doctoral degree at Michigan State University in Political Science-Urban Studies joint programs.

The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) is a not-for-profit membership organization founded to advance the art and practice of systems engineering by helping individuals and enterprises turn complexity into competitive advantage. The Councils mission is to foster the definition, understanding, and practice of world class systems engineering in industry, academia, and government.

Systems Engineering is based upon the delivery of system effectiveness through the balanced interaction between system elements across a range of technologies; and an understanding of the complex behaviour which emerges when system are used together in a real world environment. Systems engineering integrates all the disciplines and specialty groups into a team effort by creating a structured development process that proceeds from concept to production to operation. Systems engineering considers both the business and the technical needs of all stakeholders with the goal of providing a quality product or service that meet the user real needs.

INCOSE is committed to shaping a future where this systems approach is preferred and valued for projects of all sizes and at all levels of problem solving from providing integrated technology solutions for product development; through matching products and services to real user need to enabling holistic solutions to global challenges.

INCOSE has grown significantly since its formation in 1990. Today, there are over six thousand members representing a broad spectrum – from student to senior practitioner, from technical engineer to program and corporate management, from science and engineering to business development. Members work together to advance their technical knowledge, exchange ideas with colleagues, and collaborate to advance systems engineering. Its individual members are affiliated with over 50 chartered chapters or national societies worldwide which are organized in Regions. The chapters, volunteer committees, and working groups provide the energy and direction for the organization. In addition, nearly 60 international enterprises from industry, academia, and government participate in INCOSE. The industries represented include aerospace, space, automotive, defence, electronics, energy, general machine building, health, IT, mining, ship building and transport.
