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:
- The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE)
- Art Pyster (Governing Board Chair), Paul Frenz
- Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC)
- Jon Wade, Cihan Dagli
- IEEE Systems Council
- Stephanie White, Bob Rassa
Past INCOSE governors Bill Miller, Kevin Forsberg, David Newbern, David Walden, Courtney Wright, Dave Olwell, Ken Nidiffer, Richard Fairley, Massood Towhidnejad, John Keppler. The governors would also like to acknowledge Andy Chen and Rich Hilliard, IEEE Computer Society, who were instrumental in helping the Governors to work within the IEEE CS structure and who supported the SEBoK transition to the IEEE Systems Council.
The stewards appoint the SEBoK Editor in Chief to manage the SEBoK and oversee the Editorial Board.
The SEBoK Editorial Board is chaired by the Editor in Chief, who provide the strategic vision for the SEBoK. The EIC is supported by a group of Editors, each of whom are responsible for a specific aspect of the SEBoK. The Editorial Board is supported by the Managing Editor, who handles all day-to-day operations. The EIC, Managing Editor, and Editorial Board are supported by a student, Madeline Haas, whose hard work and dedication are greatly appreciated.
