The 2023 IEEE International Conference on Systems Engineering was held from 17-20 April at the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver Hotel in Vancouver, BC, Canada. This highly anticipated event saw participation from over 15 different countries, making it a truly international conference.

The conference began on a high note, with three exciting tutorials on Monday. Dr. Dinesh Verma, from the Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC), Acquisition Innovation Research Center (AIRC), and Stevens Institute of Technology, officially opened the conference on Tuesday morning with an engaging keynote speech on current research supporting the transition of Digital Engineering strategic intent into pragmatic reality. The audience was captivated by Dr. Verma insights, which sparked a lively discussion on the many challenges and opportunities that arise from the covered topics.

The technical program was equally impressive, with over 100 papers presented across 30 sessions covering the main aspects of Systems Engineering. These sessions covered a wide range of topics, including Systems Thinking, Agile Methods, Systems Requirements, Systems Security, Machine Learning applied to Systems Engineering, and Model-based System Engineering, among others. In addition to the technical program, the conference also included several vibrant social events. Attendees were treated to a Welcome Reception, a Young Professionals Network Event, an Awards Lunch, and a Women in Engineering (WiSE) Reception. The conference also hosted a successful special session on Aerospace Engineering, with 12 papers presented by experts in the field.

The 17th Annual IEEE Syscon has once again proved to be the premier venue for discussions on the state-of-the-art science of Systems Engineering. Academics and practitioners from around the world were given a platform to share their findings and experiences. For those who missed out on the conference, the proceedings will soon be available on IEEE Xplore.

Next year, the IEEE Syscon will be held in beautiful Montreal, QC, Canada. We look forward to the valuable contributions from academics and practitioners, making it another great success.
