SWISSED15; 8th September, Kongresshaus Zürich
The Swiss Systems Engineering Day 2015 is approaching quickly. There are already in excess of 130 Professionals and Students registered to attend our annual symposium.
Many interesting talks and good networking opportunities are waiting for you. To register go to this page.
SWISSED Brochure released
The Brochure has been released, see here. The Key notes will be given by Professor Larry Leifer from Stanford University and Tim Weilkiens Author and SE Coach. The other talks cover a wide variety of SE subjects from Academia and several different industries such as Aviation, Defence, Transportation, Energy and Space.
Please take time before the event to consider which of the lectures you want to attend.
SWISSED Student Prize 2015 - Deadline extended until August 30
Due to the fact that a lot of students finalise their final year thesis until end of August we decided to extend the deadline.
Applications for the SWISSED Student Prize 2015 can be submitted until August 30, 2015. More information about the application and evaluation procedure is available on the Student Prize web site.

Professor Hitchins, the founder of the UK INCOSE Chapter kindly promotes SWISSED in this short and informative video.
In addition, Prof. Hitchins has produced a longer, more detailed video on Systems and Systems Engineering: Creating Viable solutions.
CHALLENGE: Introduce a Colleague to Systems Engineering at SWISSED15!
The SWISSED15 Organising Committee have set a challenge to attendees of our Annual Symposium. The person who can introduce the most new people to SWISSED15 will receive a special prize awarded at the closing of the event.
To be eligible for the prize, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the names of the attendees you personally introduced to SWISSED15. Some verification will be conducted!
Why is SWISSED Important? Here are the views from two of our Sponsors:
„As a specialized provider of Systems Engineering services in the medical device industry we are glad that the Systems Engineering community in Switzerland grows every year. The SWISSED is an industry independent conference and allows us to share experience and knowledge with experts from other domains. At FRIKART Engineering we are convinced that systems thinking and systems development will be even more important in the medical environment (keyword: eHealth/mHealth) and will soon reach other sectors like the machine industry (keyword: IoT).“
„Since we are one of the universities of applied sciences providing studies in systems engineering according to Swiss federal regulations, we have a natural interest in a broad systems engineering education. Consequently we support the networking between academia and industries since the very beginning of SSSE as the Swiss chapter of INCOSE. From our viewpoint the second SWISSED conference is a confirmation of current changes in the industries landscape in Switzerland towards the need for methodically well-educated systems architects and systems integrators. As the need for pure subject matter experts tends to decrease also in Swiss industries. We're looking forward to extend the network and to welcome you at our information desk.“
