BERLIN, 1./2. October 2008 at Fraunhofer IPK


Information about ASIM and previous conferences is available at the Web site of the current conference.



Every two years the ASIM Conference on Simulation in Production and Logistics presents new developments and interesting applications of Simulation. This largest European simulation conference is well balanced between research, development and industrial use. Scientific innovation is discussed as well as the successful application in every day's business.

Companies, which have not been using simulation before, will get a first impression and will be enabled to estimate the use of simulation for their own enterprises, supported by the exhibition of relevant simulation tools and services.

Simulation users can exchange experiences, can evaluate new offers and can participate in special discussions. One important issue will be the digital factory and the impact of this technology for the suppliers and the potentials for other smaller enterprises. Furthermore, a focus of the conference will be on the application of simulation, for example in the automotive industry, one-of-a-kind production, and supply chain management.

The traditionally comfortable and professional created environment of the Berlin Conference will support the fruitful exchange of thoughts.
We are looking forward to welcome you in Berlin.

Markus Rabe
Head of the Programme Committee
