Conference on Systems Engineering Research 2013

Addressing Societal Challenges with Next-Generation Systems!

CSER 2013

Welcome to the 11th Annual Conference on Systems Engineering Research (CSER 2013) to be held March 19-22, 2013, in Atlanta, Georgia. The Georgia Institute of Technology is honored to host CSER 2013. CSER has become the leading conference and platform for systems engineering that both pushes the boundaries of current research and identifies and responds to new challenges, fostering new research ideas. At CSER 2013, researchers from around the world will be presenting papers addressing societal challenges and next-generation systems for meeting them. Papers will address topics from evolutionary systems to smart grid and infrastructure, workforce training and even defense and aerospace. It is sure to be one of the most informative systems conferences of the year.

Post-Conference Message

The conference organizers would like to thank everyone who helped make CSER 2013 such a success -- the local organizing committee, the program committee, reviewers, keynote speakers and panelists, presenters and authors, attendees, volunteers and the Global Learning Center.

  • The proceedings are published online by Elsevier.
  • The keynote talks/presentations are posted online.
  • CSER 2014 will be held next spring in Los Angeles, organized by the University of Southern California in collaboration with Stevens Institute of Technology, and managed by the Los Angeles chapter of INCOSE.

Note: There will be no conference registration refunds after March 8th.
