IEEE SIEDS

The Systems and Information Engineering Design Symposium (SIEDS) is a student-focused international forum for applied research, development, and design in Systems and Information Engineering.


SIEDS 2022

Thank you for making SIEDS 2022 a success!  We look forward to seeing you next year.

The Symposium is the leading showcase for undergraduate and Master's graduate design projects, such as those from capstone design courses or from baccalaureate, honors, or design-oriented graduate theses. Projects must extend beyond the analysis of systems and include the synthesis of alternative solutions to a problem. When appropriate, implementation and testing of a design are encouraged. Faculty, industry, and government project advisors are welcome coauthors.

Proceedings from SIEDS for prior years can be found on IEEEXplore.

    Useful presentation preparation information:

    • If you are attending the conference in Charlottesville, VA on April 29, 2022, presentation slots will be 8 minutes.  Upload PowerPoint slides with the title as follows: [LastNameofFirstAuthor et al] [ShortenedPaperTitle] SIEDS 2022 For example:  Smith et al Integration of User Interfaces SIEDS 2022
    • If you will be attending the conference virtually on April 28, 2022, your video should consist of a 5-minute recorded oral presentation by the authors (ideally one or two).  Set the title for your video as follows:  [LastNameOfFirstAuthor et al] [ShortenedPaperTitle] SIEDS 2022  For example:  Smith et al Integration of User Interfaces SIEDS 2022
    •  Recommended: full-screen screencast of the slides, with a picture-in-picture video of the presenter.
    •  Acceptable Alternatives: full screen of slides with audio of speaker or slides and speaker video side-by-side.
    •  Allowed formats include Windows Media Video (WMV and ASF), MP4 video, and QuickTime movie.
    •  Use a high-quality microphone for the recording. Most headset microphones work well. Avoid using the microphone that is integrated in your computer.
    •  The video resolution should be at least 720p (1280x720). We prefer 1080p (1920x1080) and 60 fps.

     

    To allow moderators time to organize and upload presentations, alterations to presentations after the due date will not be accepted.
