SERC Sponsor Research Review 2017

9th Annual SERC Sponsor Research Review

2017_SSRR_date-hexagonWednesday, November 8, 2017
8:00 am – 5:00 pm
Hosted by: FHI 360 Conference Center
1825 Connecticut Avenue, NW, #2
Washington, DC 20009

This one-day, sponsor-focused event unites the government, industry, and academic systems engineering research community in order to share research progress and discuss the most challenging systems engineering issues today. The review highlights over twenty ongoing SERC research projects. Researchers from the SERC universities will discuss their research, highlight results, and describe opportunities for government agencies to sponsor and/or participate in their projects. Several of these research projects are ready for pilot use and transition to practice. The program and sessions focus on the research results achieved in each of the four thematic areas of the SERC: Trusted Systems, Enterprise Systems and Systems of Systems, Human Capital Development, and Systems Engineering and Systems Management Transformation.

Congratulations to the winner of the 2017 Doctoral Fellows Best Student Paper award, Davina Rizzo from Stevens Institute of Technology.

Attendance is open to government, Federally Funded Research Development Centers, national laboratories, industry, and academic institutions.
