Since its inception, CSER has become the primary conference for disseminating systems engineering research and germinating new research ideas. CSER is now poised to become the leading conference for theoretical work in systems engineering, while retaining its emphasis on practical application. At CSER 2016, researchers from around the world will be presenting papers that push the boundaries of systems engineering research and respond to new challenges for systems architecting and engineering. The University of Alabama in Huntsville is honored to co-host CSER 2016, along with Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC) and the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE).
The high-tech city of Huntsville which sprawls at the foot of a mountain in North Alabama is equally at home in the 19th century or the 21st. Huntsville's tourist attractions reflect the heritage of Alabama's first English-speaking city, the strife of the American Civil War and the accomplishments of America's rocket scientists. The city is nicknamed "The Rocket City" for its close history with U.S. space missions. Huntsville has been important in developing space technology since the 1950s.
