|The IEEE Systems and Information
Engineering Design Symposium (SIEDS'11) is a student-focused international
forum for applied research, development, and design in Systems and
Information Engineering. The Symposium is the leading showcase for
undergraduate and Master's graduate design projects, such as those
from capstone design courses 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 project advisors are welcome coauthors.
Contributed papers are solicited that apply diverse methodologies,
- 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
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 paper.
- 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.
