Abstract. Systems Engineering (SE) is an engineering discipline whose responsibility is creating

and executing an interdisciplinary process to ensure that the customer and stakeholder's needs are

satisfied in a high quality, trustworthy, cost efficient and schedule compliant manner throughout a

system's entire life cycle (INCOSE 2015). Key characteristics of Systems Engineering processes are

that they are collaborative, iterative, model-based. These processes may concern (or be adapted to)

the design of systems with various levels of complexity including Systems of Systems (SoS). It is

then called SoSE. SE and SoSE processes, methods and tools are either overlapped or interfaced

with other domains such as project management or dependability.

A current trend in SE is to develop Model-Based approaches representing and highlighting how

requested stakeholders’ expectations and requested systems’ values are taken into consideration, by

means of operational, functional, logical, physical… “views”. Model Based Systems Engineering

(MBSE) enables designers to define and to manipulate various kinds of system models e.g. for

analyzing system architecture or simulating the system behavior with interrelated models in order to

verify that the requirements are met (INCOSE 2007).

The aim of this open invited track is to gather international state-of-the-art research results and case

studies, and to explore new Systems Engineering and System of Systems Engineering directions

and emerging trends. We invite authors to submit high quality contributions describing significant,

original, and unpublished results. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE), Model-Based System of Systems Engineering


- Requirements authoring and Verification: passing from Stakeholders’ requirements to System

requirements in MBSE or MBSoSE context

- From Stakeholders’ expected values to Systems Values: how to evaluate?

- Architecting Systems to Address Multiple Stakeholder Values

- Model-Based Safety Assessment for SE

- Non Functional properties in Architecting and Design processes: issues on native Resilient,

Robust, Interoperable, Safe and Maintainable Systems

- Product lines engineering (product family design) based on SE principles

- Early verification and early validation considering Value notion
