Dear INCOSE Colleagues,


Please pardon the previous message.  Unfortunately, all items were actually not in place to support the desire to minimize the work for the reviewers. Please fill out the form available in the link below.  If accepted then you will also have to enter the info into EasyChair.  We will try to improve this next year.


The INCOSE Annual International Symposium provides a unique forum for systems engineers to interact, share and learn of the latest developments in systems engineering science, theory and practice.  The technical program is one of the most important aspects of the symposium, and we rely on the quality of the submission reviews to ensure a solid program. Preparation for the INCOSE IS 2018 in Washington DC, USA is already in progress. At this stage we are in need of additional reviewers.


The IS2018 Technical Review Committee (TRC) cordially seeks your support with the IS 2018 review process as a reviewer. The reviewing time frame is from Early December 2017 to Early January 2018. If you are able to volunteer please submit your information by October 27, 2017. Fill out the form found at this link and email it to


Your personal information will not be made available to any third parties nor will it be used for any purpose other than maintaining a database of INCOSE Reviewers. If you decide to become a reviewer, you will receive an email from INCOSE prior to each year’s symposium allowing you to confirm whether you will again be willing to support the next symposium with your volunteer time as reviewer. You can request the removal of your personal information at any time.


We will use the information you provide to optimally allocate submissions for review that best fit your skills and experience. We endeavor to not burden you with more than three submissions to review (although reviewers who volunteer to take on a heavier burden are always welcomed!)


Please note that if you have been a reviewer for IS 2016 and/or IS 2017 you are requested to provide us with your data again as there have been major changes and additions to the  SE topics and SE Application Domains which we trust will contribute to better coverage of the systems engineering discipline for both authors and reviewers.


You will be notified of your reviewer status in late November / early December 2017.  If selected as a reviewer this year you will also receive allocated submissions for review at the same time. We will also include any additional information you may need to perform your reviews.


Thank you in anticipation of your kind support.


Best regards,

Mike Celentano, ESEP

INCOSE Technical Director
