Prof. Roger Kaperson

received his Ph.D. at University of Chicago in 1966. Before coming to Clark he taught at the University of Connecticut and Michigan State University, was Vice President for Academic Affairs at Clark University from 1993 to 1996, and in 1999 was elected Director of the Stockholm Environment Institute, a post he held through 2004. He is now Research Professor and Distinguished Scientist at Clark University. One of his current research fields is to develop new means to bridge the worlds of science and practice in issues associated with vulnerability and resilience to global environmental change. In 2016, he joined IS3E and gave a lecture about risk management.

Sven-Olaf Schulze

studied aircraft construction and lightweight construction at TU Braunschweig. He started his career at Astrium Space. Further career stages in aerospace, special machinery and consulting followed, always within the context of Systems Engineering. Today, Sven-Olaf Schulze is Senior Expert at Unity AG. Since 2009, he is chairman of the GfSE, the German chapter of INCOSE. In 2013 and 2015, he gave insights about Systems Engineering in Germany.

Prof. Rob Cloutier

is the Systems Engineering Program Chair at the University of South Alabama. He received his Ph.D. in Systems Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology and has an M.B.A. from Eastern University. With more than 20 years of experience in Systems Engineering and Systems Architecting, software engineering, and project management in both commercial and defense industries he is now focusing his research within Concept of Operations, System Architecting, Model-Based Systems Engineering, complex patterns for Systems Engineering, and visualizing socio-technical systems. From 2013 to 2015, he joined the Spring School and gave lectures about Systems Engineering. He focused on both the basics and history of Systems Engineering but gave also introductions into Model-Based Systems Engineering, SysML or patterns in MBSE.

Dr. Maik Maurer

co-Founded Spritz Technology, Inc. and serves as its Chief Technology Officer. His focus is to build Spritz Technology's IP portfolio and create opportunities for Spritz technologies in a wide range of markets. He affiliated with the Technical University Munich where he received his Ph.D. in structural awareness in complex product design. He also founded Teseon GmbH, a software and consultancy company, to address complexity challenges for large companies, especially in the engineering context. In the beginning of the Spring School, Maik Maurer was one of the leading initiators. His lectures focused on complexity management.

Prof. Ali Mostashari

is Assistant Professor and Director of the Infrastructure Systems Program and of the Center for Complex Adaptive Sociotechnological Systems at Stevens Institute of Technology, New Jersey. His scholarly interests include complex sociotechnological systems such as the cognitive/smart power grid, transportation, energy infrastructure systems, and complex social/organizational systems. He studied occasionally at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he also received his Ph.D. in Engineering Systems/Technology Management and Policy. In 2012, he joined IS3E and introduced the participants to Systems Engineering.
