|The IEEE Systems and Information
Engineering Design Symposium (SIEDS'09) is a student-focused
international forum for applied research, development, and design in Systems
Engineering. The Symposium is the leading showcase for undergraduate
and Master's graduate design projects, such as those from capstone design
or from baccalaureate, honors, or design-oriented graduate
theses. Projects must extend beyond the analysis of systems and include
the synthesis of
alternative solutions to a problem. When appropriate, implementation
and testing of a design is encouraged. Faculty, industry, and government
advisors are welcome coauthors.
Contributed papers are solicited that apply diverse methodologies, including:
- Data Mining and Statistics
- Simulation and Stochastic Modeling
- Human Factors and Cognitive Engineering
- Mathematical Modeling and Optimization
- Risk Analysis, Technology Management, and Policy
- Life-cycle Analysis
- Systems Economic Analysis
Papers can describe work in a wide variety of application areas, including: Telecommunications and Information Technology, Energy, Robotics, Transportation and Logistics, Critical Infrastructure, Military Applications, Economic and Financial Systems, Environmental, E-Business, Manufacturing, Education, and Decision Support. Papers should emphasize the application of fundamental systems analysis and design concepts. Symposium papers presented will appear in a copyrighted CD-ROM proceedings, available on-site and through IEEE Press. Papers not accepted for the proceedings will be considered for the conference poster sessions.
OF SPECIAL NOTE
- Only those papers that are presented will be published. Submitted
papers that are not presented will not be published.
BEST PAPER AWARDS
- One paper per track will be awarded the Best Paper Award for that track by a set of external judges. This selection is based first on the quality of the written paper -- only the very best written papers are considered for a best paper award. Of the strongest papers, the final selection of each award winner is based on both the presentation and the papser.
- While papers from both undergraduate and graduate students are welcomed at SIEDS, only those papers primarily written by undergraduates are eligible for Best Paper awards.

STUDENT TRAVEL SCHOLARSHIPS
- Student Travel scholarships are available on limited basis.
- Travel scholarships are only available to a single presenting author per paper.
- Depending on demand, travel scholarships may only cover a portion of total travel expenses.
- Applications for travel scholarships can be submitted prior to paper acceptance and must be submitted no later than one month prior to SIEDS.
- To submit a travel scholarship application, complete the Request Form.
The Symposium will be held on the grounds of the historic University of Virginia, in Charlottesville, Virginia.
