Sponsored & organized by DEVCOM AC and SERC
The 2021 AI4SE/SE4AI Workshop will be held October 20-21 virtually on ZoomGov. Participation is limited to US citizens only and will be by invitation. Abstracts are sought for presentations and panels from government, industry and academia addressing key Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Systems Engineering (SE) initiatives. All abstracts and presentations must be approved for public release. Selected abstracts will be invited to present and/or attend the workshop.
The objective of this workshop is to bring together key stakeholders from across industry, government and academia to explore specific outcomes that resulted from the initial 2020 meeting. The agenda for the October 2021 workshop will be developed to generate significant interchange and dialogue among participants. The intended goal will be to curate panel discussions and facilitate group breakout sessions that produce actionable applications of Artificial Intelligence for Systems Engineering (AI4SE) and Systems Engineering for Artificial Intelligence (SE4AI) as well as relevant research ideas that align with DEVCOM AC and SERC AI/SE priorities.

Tips for Authors
Abstracts should clearly outline the summary of the project objectives, results, benefits to defense capability and the warfighter. The title should be concise as it will be listed in the workshop program. Submissions must be appropriate for an open 30-minute oral presentation, which includes time for questions and answers, or for a 60-minute panel. Presentation guidelines will be provided with notice of selection.
The AI4SE/SE4AI Workshop is an unclassified workshop. All abstracts and selected presentations must be approved for public release.
