We invite you to attend the 2018 NSF Design Circle Workshop: Designing to Address Global Systems Challenges, March 22-24, 2018 on the campus of Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon.
Designing to Address Global Systems Challenges
The goal of this workshop is bring together educators and researchers in the fields of Engineering Design and Systems Engineering to use the state-of-the-art in those fields with the objective of addressing global, real-world challenges that impact people, our planet, and the economy. The proposed workshop is part of the effort launched by thought leaders the Engineering System Design research community to bring participants together in workshops hosted every 12-18 months to address critical research and education.
The first workshop in the series of workshops was held at Clemson University in November of 2015, and was organized around identifying general directions to move forward in the next several years and exploiting the synergies between the fields of engineering design and systems. A second workshop was held at Georgia Tech University, with a focus on how to make external stakeholders and funders understand the critical role engineering design and systems engineering research plays in advancing science and technology.
The third workshop in the series of system design workshops will be held in Corvallis, OR at Oregon State University. The workshop will explore how the design and systems engineering research communities can address global challenges and problems. As in the first two workshop, current grantees from both ESD and SYS programs will be able to present posters explaining their work, and getting feedback from their colleagues and the program director.
