Governance and Editorial Boards
BKCASE Governing Board
The three SEBoK steward organizations – the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society (IEEE-CS), and the Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC) provide the funding and resources needed to sustain and evolve the SEBoK and make it available as a free and open resource to all. The stewards appoint the BKCASE Governing Board to be their primary agents to oversee and guide the SEBoK and its companion BKCASE product, GRCSE.
The BKCASE Governing Board includes:
- INCOSE (past and present)
- Kevin Forsberg, William Miller, David Newbern, David Walden, Courtney Wright
- IEEE Computer Society
- Richard Fairley, Ken Nidiffer
- David Olwell, Art Pyster (Governing Board Chair)
The governors would also like to acknowledge John Keppler, IEEE Computer Society, who has been instrumental in helping the Governors to work within the IEEE CS structure.
The stewards appoint the BKCASE Editor in Chief to manage the SEBoK and GRCSE and oversee the Editorial Board.
The SEBoK Editorial Board is chaired by an Editor in Chief, supported by a group of Associate Editors.
