From the Call for Panels:
Interested practitioners, researchers, managers and others in the field of Systems Engineering can create meaningful dialogues by sharing their knowledge in a panel or roundtable session during the symposium.
Panel/roundtable proposals are solicited to facilitate such dialogues.
A panel follows the traditional conference format where a number of panelists present their views on, and debate, a controversial subject.
The panelists should be selected carefully to produce a stimulating dialogue.
In the roundtable format the chairperson introduces a subject with the objective of involving both the other presenters and the audience in the discussion. A roundtable is summarised in a written report and typically fed into working groups for further activities.
The following requirements and constraints apply for developing your proposal:
Each panel submittal is reviewed by at least 3 members of the INCOSE review team. The evaluation criteria are found at the symposium website www.incose.org/symp2016.
For accepted panels the moderator is required to provide a final one to four page position statement from each panelist.
The position statements will be published in the symposium proceedings.
