As the largest European simulation conference for production and logistics, the ASIM Dedicated Conference presents every second year trends and current developments, scientific papers as well as interesting industrial applications. The discussed topics cover different aspects from questions of resource efficiency and digitalization to virtual commissioning and assistance as well as various 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.

In this constellation, the conference offers an ideal platform to exchange ideas with top-class speakers and participants having background in research or application, to gain insights into possible applications of simulation, to establish professional expert contacts and to see new offers. Workshops and tutorials, an evening dialogue event and the accompanying company exhibition with software vendors and service providers from the simulation industry create further opportunities for detailed discussion and to get to know current topics and offers. Technical presentations are available in German and English.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in September 2021 in Erlangen!
