Conference program

The program is split into two thematic sessions. On Wednesday afternoon, the focus lies on data. What are the techniques in current research and on the work-floor to handle data and learn as much as possible from it?
On Thursday morning, the focus lies on the integration of models, to create a virtual copy of the plant for building understanding and for decision making.
