    Why You Should Contribute Your Expertise To CASE

    This conference will provide an opportunity for you to share your knowledge, insights, and best practices with aerospace systems engineering practitioners, chief engineers, program managers, and others involved in a wide range of past, present, and future complex systems developments.

    The structure of the event will be unlike existing AIAA conferences. With a greater emphasis on information and idea exchange among the best and brightest in the aerospace systems engineering arena than on technical paper presentations, CASE attendees can expect to leave the event with practical knowledge and ideas that are directly applicable to their daily work. Our intent is to ensure that at the end of this meeting, attendees will think differently about the issues we face today as a systems engineering community and have additional resources to address these issues.

    What to Expect 

    • Hear multiple sides of complex issues rather than company “commercials” or one-dimensional insights.
    • You will be a part of and shape the discussion rather than being a passive listener. 
    • Focus on a single track over the course of the event or mix and match the conversations in which you choose to participate.
    • Leave this event with practical knowledge and ideas that you can apply to your work immediately.

    Who Should Attend 


    • Chief engineers and program managers of major aerospace systems, both corporate and government
    • Current and aspiring system engineering practitioners
    • Business managers
    • Government acquisition, procurement, and oversight personnel
