Every two years the ASIM Dedicated 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 first impressions and will be enabled to estimate the benefits 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 application of simulation, for example in the automotive industry, one-of-a-kind production, transport logistics, and supply chain management. Specific workshops will intensify the discussion on current issues.

The traditionally comfortable and professionally created environment of this Conference will support the fruitful exchange of thoughts.

We are looking forward to welcome you in Dortmund.
