About these proceedings


This volume chronicles the 16th Annual Conference on System Engineering Research (CSER) held on May 8-9, 2018 at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia, USA. The CSER offers researchers in academia, industry, and government a common forum to present, discuss, and influence systems engineering research. It provides access to forward‐looking research from across the globe, by renowned academicians as well as perspectives from senior industry and government representatives. Co‐founded by the University of Southern California and Stevens Institute of Technology in 2003, CSER has become the preeminent event for researchers in systems engineering across the globe.

 Topics include though are not limited to the following:

Systems in context:

·         Formative methods: requirements

·         Integration, deployment, assurance

·         Human Factors

·         Safety and Security

Decisions/ Control & Design; Systems Modeling:

·         Optimization, Multiple Objectives, Synthesis

·         Risk and resiliency

·         Collaborative autonomy

·         Coordination and distributed decision-making


·         Prescriptive modeling; state estimation

·         Stochastic approximation, stochastic optimization and control

Integrative Data engineering:

·         Sensor Management

·         Design of Experiments



INCOSE Integration, deployment, assurance of systems Human Factors and systems Safety and Security of Systems Systems Decisions Control and Design in Systems Systems Modeling Systems Optimization Multiple Objectives in Systems Risk and resiliency of Systems Collaborative autonomy of Systems Stochastic approximation stochastic optimization and control Integrative Data engineering Integrative Data engineering Integrative Data engineering Design of Experiments in Systems
