Conference on Systems Engineering Research

The 20th International Conference on Systems Engineering Research (CSER 2023) will push the boundaries of systems engineering research and respond to new challenges for systems engineering. CSER 2023 invites researchers and practitioners to submit their work in alignment with the thematic focus on a smart and sustainable world.

CSER was founded in 2003 by Stevens Institute of Technology and the University of Southern California, in 2023 the conference returns to the Stevens campus in Hoboken, New Jersey.




Systems Engineering Toward a Smart and Sustainable World

The 2023 theme emphasizes how the transdisciplinary systems engineering research community plays a pivotal role in creating smart systems and the transition toward a more sustainable society. Smart systems encompass those that apply artificial intelligence, machine learning, digitalization and data analytics to provide performance enhancements, automated insights and informed decisions. Modern systems have profound impacts on economic, environmental and social sustainability, creating complex challenges that demand a transdisciplinary approach.
