Perspectives on Engineering Systems – Seeking Convergence Advancing research and education to make societal impacts
Purdue Systems Collaboratory plans to reschedule the Annual Meeting of the Council of Engineering Systems Universities (CESUN) to Fall 2020, at the Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. At Purdue, we keep in mind that various perspectives such as “systems thinking”, “systems science”, and “systems engineering” all play a role in addressing engineering systems / socio-technical problems. The CESUN 2020 theme of “Perspectives on Engineering Systems – Seeking Convergence” also highlights that addressing engineering systems requires a convergence of knowledge from multiple domains.
Topics for papers, posters, and workshops include but are not limited to the following:
- Hazard mitigation, disaster response and recovery
- Education in engineering systems: how people learn systems thinking
- Theoretical and methodological advances in systems research
- Smart infrastructure and smart cities
- Transportation and other networks
- Policy interfaces for engineering systems
- Modeling humans and human institutions
- Metrics for resilience, sustainability, and socio-technical qualities
- Sustainability and environmental impact
- Other complex systems such as health care systems, engineering systems of finance, IoT, security systems, and knowledge systems
CESUN was established in 2004 by universities offering educational and research programs in engineering systems. CESUN membership includes more than 50 universities in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. The Council provides a mechanism for the member universities to work together developing engineering systems as a new field of study. An overall objective of the Council is to broaden engineering systems education and practice.
