›9th International Systems & Concurrent Engineering for Space Applications Conference (SECESA 2020)
The European Space Agency (Technical and Quality Management Directorate and Concurrent Design Facility), in collaboration with the Delft University of Technology, is organising the 9th International Systems & Concurrent Engineering for Space Applications Conference (SECESA 2020) at the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering of the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), in Delft, on 30 September - 2 October 2020.
Please be informed that a dedicated MBSE Workshop (MBSE 2020) - covering the topics of Digital Engineering and standardisation to enhance interoperability - is planned to be held in the same week of SECESA on Monday 28 and Tuesday 29 September, at ESTEC premises. For more details please check at: mbse2020.esa.int
The events have been scheduled in the same week and in the same area in order to give more space to targeted discussions, while maximising interaction across the community of practitioners.
Held on a biannual basis, the Conference aims to foster networking and exchange of ideas, experiences, lessons learned and future trends in the area of Systems and Concurrent Engineering (SE&CE), for agencies, companies, organizations, universities and institutes involved in space and related activities.
The first two editions of the Concurrent Engineering Workshops (CEW) were held at ESTEC in 2004 and 2006, focussing on the novelties of the early Concurrent Engineering design centres, methodology and applications.
In 2008 the Workshop objectives were expanded to the vast field of Systems Engineering (SE), and the event was named SECESA: “Systems Engineering and Concurrent Engineering for Space Applications”.
Since then, SECESA has been hosted at different European University premises, and co-organised by academia chosen via a formal selection process.
This approach enables the Universities to showcase specific areas or projects where students are excelling at utilising SE and CE approaches as well as accomplishing the Agency educational objective of inspiring young generations of engineers with new methodology and approaches for Systems Engineering by facilitating their participation to the technical sessions.
