Behind the Buzzwords

Free eSeminar

Date: Wednesday, 2 May 2018

Time: 10am EDT (New York) / 3pm BST (London) / 4pm CEST (Paris)

  • What is a "Digital Twin"? 
  • Are we all on the same page with what the phrase implies? 
  • What are the key concepts that differentiate the "Digital Twin" from your common garden "Digital Prototype"? 
  • Do you believe The Hype surrounding the concept?

Join us for this unique eSeminar "Simulation & Digital Twins: Behind the Buzzwords", part of our "The (digital) Hype" series, which aims to look beyond the spin and delve deeper into the reality behind some of today's most cutting-edge concepts, and how they really relate to simulation. 

The eSeminar brings together the major software vendors in a uniquely neutral platform, to discuss their definitions of Digital Twin, some of the work they are doing in the space, and the barriers standing in the way of full adoption.

Throughout this free online event, you will be able to put your questions to the presenters and hear our organisation committee question the presenters themselves.
