Cornell University, Ithaca, NY

Transdisciplinary Frontiers in Systems Engineering Innovation

A boundary-breaking meeting of minds in academia, industry and government to advance the direction of global systems challenges in research and workforce development.

Global Challenge Thrusts

Taking inspiration from INCOSE’s Future of Systems Engineering (FUSE) challenges, the Cornell Systems Summit will offer sessions focused on core systems engineering topics, as well as on energy, medical, and cyber-physical systems topics. The theme of sociotechnical systems will be interlaced throughout all sessions.

Energy Systems

Energy systems are one of largest and most critical global challenges facing humanity today. The knowledge gained during the Cornell Systems Summit will empower attendees to further contribute towards solving these challenges.

Health Systems

Future solutions in medicine and health systems require transdisciplinary contributions transcending the boundaries of traditional academic structures, and the convergence of the fields of systems engineering and medicine provides grounds for strong intellectual cross-fertilization.

Cyber-physical Systems

Because of the  growing prevalence of cyber-physical systems being incorporated into so many industries, the Cornell Systems Summit will focus on highlighting, promoting, and dissemination some of the most cutting-edge work in this area.


Making an Industrial and Societal Impact

Amid the beautiful summer backdrop of central New York’s waterfalls and wineries, Cornell Systems Engineering is bringing together world leaders from academia, industry and government to Ithaca. By galvanizing them to combine their valued perspective insights and creative forces, the Cornell Systems Summit will showcase bold new directions that the Systems Engineering Community can take to make an impact on today’s global challenges.

More Than a Conference, a Collaboration

Experts from around the world will attend, setting the stage for participants to engage in meaningful Q&A and discussion. Through panel discussion sessions, we will explore how the systems community can demonstrate the best ways to advance research initiatives and together meet the world’s workforce development needs, essential to tackling global challenges head on.

Your Stay

The Systems faculty and staff are looking forward to welcoming all of you to Cornell Systems Summit, Ithaca and Cornell University.

Land Acknowledgment

Cornell University is located on the traditional homelands of the Gayogo̱hó:nǫɁ (the Cayuga Nation). The Gayogo̱hó:nǫɁ are members of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, an alliance of six sovereign nations with a historic and contemporary presence on this land. The confederacy precedes the establishment of Cornell University, New York state and the United States of America. We acknowledge the painful history of Gayogo̱hó:nǫɁ dispossession, and honor the ongoing connection of Gayogo̱hó:nǫɁ people, past and present, to these lands and waters.
