Every other year the ASIM Dedicated Conference, which is Europe’s largest conference on simulation in production and logistics, takes place and presents future-oriented trends and current developments, scientific works as well as interesting industrial applications. Discussed topics cover a range of issues from matters of resource efficiency and digitalisation through to virtual assistance as well as further diverse aspects that relate to the application of simulation for planning, commissioning and operating factory and logistics systems. Intentionally, reports from research and teaching are presented equitably alongside developments and industrial applications.

This constellation allows the conference to be an ideal platform to interact with top-class speakers and participants with a background in research or application, to gather insights on possible applications of simulation, to establish professional contacts and to survey new offerings. Workshops and tutorials, an evening dialogue event as well as the accompanying exhibition with software vendors and service providers from the simulation industry create additional opportunities for detailed discussions and for discovering current topics and offerings. Presentations will be held in either German or English.

We will be happy to welcome you to Chemnitz in September 2019!
