    Meeting Description: 

    The inaugural INCOSE SySTEAM mini-conference is a free, two-day online event intended to provide individuals from around the globe with the opportunity to convene, discuss, and exchange ideas relating to the intersection between systems STEM/STEAM education and systems thinking/systems engineering competencies. The event will feature talks & posters showcasing SySTEAM-relevant projects, efforts, and ideas from the SySTEAM community members and other members of the public, as well as opportunities for roundtable discussion and small-group discourse with other attendees.

    Call for presentations:

    We are currently seeking paper & poster presentations for the SySTEAM mini-conference highlighting current, emerging, and future trends in interdisciplinary systems education/training from the perspectives of educators, STEAM industry professionals, and other stakeholders. All interested individuals are encouraged to submit, including members of the general public, as long as they would be able to present their content at the mini-conference. Submissions may take the form of case study presentations based on learned experience, original research studies, meta-analyses, critiques of policy/practice, etc., so long as they contribute to SySTEAM’s overall mission of improving education worldwide through the greater integration of systems content into all levels of education/training. Participants are highly encouraged to ground their content in reference to both existing knowledge (prior studies, existing policy, etc.) and new/emerging knowledge from their own analyses.

    Suggested topics include, but are by no means limited to:

    • Best practices in teaching interdisciplinary competencies

    • Trends in employer recognition of systems engineering skills

    • New methods for integrating systems content into STEAM curricula

    • Case studies in improving outreach/awareness of systems engineering competencies

    We are currently seeking qualified individuals to serve as volunteer peer reviewers for the SySTEAM mini-conference. Individuals with expertise in the education sector/teaching, systems engineering, and/or in interdisciplinary fields are particularly encouraged to apply. Prior peer reviewing experience is preferred but not required. Volunteers do not need to be SySTEAM members (though they’re encouraged to join!) and are encouraged, but not obligated, to attend the mini-conference.
