ASEC 2016 Systems Research Academic Showcase

Extended deadline for the ASEC 2016 Academic Showcase!

All potential exhibitors now have until 30th June to submit their abstracts.

The Showcase is a poster competition for academic research but, unlike other competitions, has a far wider remit that includes:

  • Individual contributions, from full-time students researching systems engineering topics
  • Group contributions, from academic research groups in specific universities
  • Project contributions, such as EU and EPSRC projects. We welcome contributions that may consist of a collaboration of partners involved in a single research project.

The five best posters submitted will win their authors one complementary attendance at ASEC 2016, including two days’ registration, accommodation and dinner.

The poster competition will be judged by a panel of industrial experts and the winning poster – selected from the top five – will win a prize of £200. There will also be some ‘mystery’ prizes on offer, which have been donated by Dyson!

The INCOSE UK ASEC provides an excellent opportunity for you, your group or project to tell the community about your research, and with such great prizes up for grabs, make sure you don’t miss the opportunity by getting your submission in now – the final deadline is rapidly approaching!

For further information, please see the Academic Showcase release on the ASEC 2016 website
