SERC Doctoral Students Forum 2017

5th Annual SERC Doctoral Students Forum

2017_SDSF_date-hexagon

Tuesday, November 7, 2017
12:15 pm – 7:00 pm
Hosted by: FHI 360 Conference Center
1825 Connecticut Avenue, NW, #2
Washington, DC 20009


The SERC Doctoral Students Forum provides an opportunity for doctoral students conducting highly relevant, systems engineering-related research at any of the SERC collaborating universities to present their research in an open forum. Students can present regardless of whether or not the research was conducted through a SERC initiative. This half-day event drives high impact by exposing the attendees to research that they may not have otherwise encountered. A Best Student Paper is awarded on the basis of potential impact, advancement to systems engineering, originality, technical content, and clarity of presentation. Congratulations to this year’s winner, Davina Rizzo from Stevens Institute of Technology.

A networking reception with heavy hors d’oeuvres will immediately follow the event.
