Preview ISSN 2513-857X

Did you spot the ISSN on the latest issue of Preview? We decided to apply for an ISSN so that Preview is now easier to reference and will be maintained as part of the National Archive.

 

When citing Preview it should be ‘ISSN 2513-857X’ exactly as shown between the quotes (and as shown on the front of the magazine). This is an ISSN for the electronic version of the magazine, and if we ever decide to issue in an additional format, we will need to request an additional ISSN to go with that.

You will find Preview on issuu here, and new issues will be added to this stack as they are published. They will all carry the same ISSN, and be distinguished by the issue name, in this example ‘Winter 2017’. This stack has the three 2015 print editions as well as all the electronic only editions from Winter 2016 to now.  You can view from the website, or the app (Android or Apple). They should all also be available to download as pdf if you wish to read offline. If you feel the need to print the pdf, A5 is a workable size.

If you are referencing Preview from Winter 2017 onward, please use the ISSN to ensure that there is no ambiguity.

There are only 3 weeks left until ASEC 2015 at Heythrop Park, and we’re getting quite excited about it.

Firstly, we have two excellent keynote speakers, Deborah Seddon from ECUK, and Alan Winfield from the Bristol Robotics Lab, plus what promises to be a fascinating talk from Chris Binns about Crossrail’s ongoing programme under London.

Getting the most from our new e-Magazines

INCOSE UK Tutorial Day

2015-06-10 18.49.57 We had a successful Tutorial day on June 10th at the beautiful Lydiard House near Swindon. We have been here for the last few years for the tutorial day, and some meetings too. There is a part of the house that is open to the public, although I have never found the time to go around it. There is also an accommodation block, very convenient for a 9:00 start in the morning if you don’t live locally. Feedback from the event showed a positive response to the location; tea and coffee are always available, and handmade cakes and biscuits arrive at suitable points.

New INCOSE Website

The INCOSE International website has had a facelift. If you are an INCOSE member then you should have had an email about this by now with instructions on how to log in. Your old username and password will no longer help you; you need to follow the link in the email and follow the instructions. Once this is done, you will in future log in with your registered email address and the new password that you have created. Continue reading New INCOSE Website

Welcome

INCOSE_UK_Logo_newWelcome to our new INCOSE UK blog. I will try to explain what we are planning, although the plan is still a little fluid, I am sure there will be unexpected emergent properties, hopefully mostly positive ones.

Firstly we hope to bring you news from INCOSE UK Council and UKAB members of interesting things; short articles about upcoming events, informal reports on past events, both international and UK as well as related non-INCOSE events. Press releases will find their way here too, so you will get to see the news as we choose to present it to a wider audience. Some of the content here will find its way to Preview.
