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 Computer Society (IEEE CS)
- Andy Chen, Rich Hilliard
Past INCOSE governors Bill Miller, Kevin Forsberg, David Newbern, David Walden, Courtney Wright, Dave Olwell, Ken Nidiffer, Richard Fairley, Massood Towhidnejad, and John Keppler. 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.

Graduate Student Support
With SEBoK v. 2.1, the Governing Board has hired a graduate student to support the Editor in Chief and Managing Editor. Madeline Haas, a master's student at George Mason University, is the current graduate student supporting the SEBoK and we gratefully acknowledge her exemplary efforts.
Interested in Editing?
The Editor in Chief is looking for additional editors to support the evolution of the SEBoK. Editors are responsible for maintaining and updating one to two knowledge areas, including recruiting and working with authors, ensuring the incorporation of community feedback, and maintaining the quality of SEBoK content. We are specifically interested in support for the following knowledge areas:
- System Deployment and Use
- Product and Service Life Management
- Enabling Businesses and Enterprises
- Systems Engineering and Software Engineering
- Procurement and Acquisition
- Systems Engineering and Specialty Engineering
