BKCASE Governing Board

The three SEBoK steward organizations – the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Systems Council (IEEE-SYSC), and Stevens Institute of Technology 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), Emma Sparks
  • Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC)
    • Thomas McDermott, Cihan Dagli
  • IEEE Systems Council (IEEE-SYSC)
    • Stephanie White, Bob Rassa

Past governors include Andy Chen, Richard Fairley, Kevin Forsberg, Paul Frenz, Richard Hilliard, John Keppler, Bill Miller, David Newbern, Ken Nidiffer, Dave Olwell, Massood Towhidnejad, Jon Wade, David Walden, and Courtney Wright. The governors would especially 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.

SEBoK 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.
