SEANET Doctoral Student Workshop
Thursday, March 23, 2017 @ the University of Southern California
Franklin Suite, the Ronald Tutor Campus Center
INCOSE Systems Engineering and Architecting Doctoral Student Network
INCOSE seeks to foster and accelerate doctoral research in the field of systems engineering 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 contacts that will enable the completion of doctoral dissertations related to systems engineering. The INCOSE SEANET invites current and soon-to-be doctoral students to participate in this one-day workshop at the University of Southern California in conjunction with the CSER 2017 conference in Redondo Beach, California. Students will have the option to exhibit a research poster following the SEANET workshop.
The SEANET Workshop will feature speakers, panel sessions and working sessions on the process of completing doctoral education and research. Students are encouraged to discuss their interest in participating with their academic advisor and are expected to have their own funds for travel costs. Students are not required to attend the CSER conference to participate in the SEANET Workshop.
Bus from Redondo Beach Crown Plaza will leave at 7:30 am
