The 2nd edition of the “International Forum on Digital Twin Design & Operations“ is an upcoming event that this year aims at exploring the value and impacts of digital twins in complex systems.
This forum will bring together experts, researchers, and industry leaders from around the world to share their insights, experiences, and knowledge on digital twin solutions. The event will provide a unique opportunity to learn about the latest developments in digital twin design and operation, including the challenges and opportunities of creating and managing digital twins in different industrial sectors.
Attendees can expect to engage in thought-provoking discussions, interactive sessions, and networking opportunities with peers and experts in the field.
The forum promises to be a valuable platform for exploring the future of digital twin technology and its potential to revolutionize complex industrial processes

A professional networking event

What can you expect from the conference?

As industries continue to evolve and become more complex, it is becoming increasingly important to leverage advanced technologies and tools to optimize operations. Digital twins, which are virtual replicas of physical systems or functional processes, offer a powerful solution to this challenge, enabling industries to simulate, monitor, and optimize their processes in real-time. By combining digital twins with systemic thinking, a holistic approach to problem-solving that takes into account the interconnectedness of all system components, industries can gain deeper insights into their operations and optimize them for maximum efficiency and productivity.

At our conference specifically focused on digital twins and systemic thinking in industry, participants will have the opportunity to:
Learn from leading experts in digital twins, systemic thinking, industrial product and processes modeling & simulation, and enterprise architecture approach,
Discover the latest tools and technologies for industrial process strategic planning & operational optimization,
Network with industry professionals and researchers,
Explore papers, case studies and real-world applications of digital twins, industrial product and processes modeling & simulation.

A one-day event exploring the latest innovations in digital twin for industrial processes strategic planning & operational optimization.

Attend cutting-edge presentations on industrial digital twins
