Call For Submission - Refereed Papers

Authors are invited to submit only original papers (written in English) not published or submitted for publication elsewhere. The length of the paper should not exceed 15 pages in length. Papers exceeding these limits, multiple submissions, and self-plagiarized papers will be rejected without further review. All submitted papers will be subject to a peer-review process. Authors need to submit an abstract first, and after notification of shortlisting, should submit the full paper. Please refer conference website for paper formatting requirements.

Academic papers should cover from theory to theory validation, although papers presenting research proposals coupled with initial results will also be considered. Practice-focused papers should include problem space and approach through implementation. Papers that provide insight into critical applications of systems engineering that address complex problems will align well with the conference theme.

At least one author of an accepted paper needs to register for the conference and present the paper during the conference, for the paper to be included in the conference proceedings. The proceedings of the conference will be published in Wiley Online Proceedings Library. Invitations will be made to the authors of the best papers to submit an extended version of papers for consideration as book chapters.

Call For Submission - Non-refereed Presentations

Non-refereed presentations are reviewed by the Conference Technical Committee for inclusion in the program, but are not subjected to the formal peer-review process as for refereed papers. Presentation format (e.g. power point) is suitable —there is no need for a formal paper. Presenters need to submit an abstract first, and after notification of shortlisting, should prepare a presentation deck to facilitate a 15 minute presentation during the conference. Non-refereed presentations may also not be included in the conference proceedings (only the abstract may be included). All presenters of non-refereed presentations must register for the conference before the presentation is admitted in the final conference program.

Call For Panel Sessions

The conference program plan is to incorporate relevant panel sessions. Prospective panel chairs should formulate a proposal that articulates a question, problem or theme which is important or contested, and is relevant to the topics of interest of the conference. All panel proposals should be written in English and provide a panel title, name(s), affiliation(s) and email address(es) of the panel chair(s) & potential panel participants (3 or 4), panel proposal and a brief outline of the proposed panel format. Please submit expressions of interest directly to the Conference Technical Program Chair via
