The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) will hold its International Workshop 2016 (IW2016) at the Marriott Torrance in Torrance, California, Jan. 30–Feb. 2, 2016. INCOSE’s International Workshop is the event of the year for systems engineers to contribute to the state of the art. Unlike INCOSE’s annual International Symposium and other conferences, there are no paper, panel, or tutorial presentations. Instead, attendees spend four days working alongside fellow systems engineers who are there to make a difference. Systems engineers at all levels and from all backgrounds are encouraged to engage in working sessions, and contribute their knowledge and experience to take the discipline forward.
