This year the Siemens RIE Aachen Arc conference brings together experts from academia, industry, and government to explore the latest advances in simulation and digital twin technologies within the context of the industrial metaverse. The conference will feature interactive discussions that encourage collaboration between different stakeholders, with the goal of accelerating the development and deployment of these technologies for the benefit of society. ​

This year's conference marks the special occasion of the 20-year partnership anniversary, and we are excited to have you join us as we look back on our 20-year journey and the milestones we achieved as well as explore together with our partner KU Leuven how simulation and digital twin technologies can lead us towards a more predictable and sustainable future.
