As the largest European simulation conference for production and logistics, every two years the ASIM Dedicated Conference presents forward-looking trends and current developments, scientific papers and interesting applications in the industry.

The thematic focus of the next conference is sustainability in production and logistics. Thus, the conference will address an important social issue and at the same time focus on current research topics in the simulation world.

Therefore, in addition to the traditional range of topics of the conference, applications of simulation for the evaluation and design of sustainable production and logistics systems are of special interest. The spectrum of methods relevant for the conference ranges from discrete-event simulation, which has traditionally been the focus of the conference, to hybrid methods and the combination with machine learning methods.

Reports from research and teaching, development and industrial use are deliberately placed on an equal footing. Workshops and tutorials, an evening dialog event as well as the accompanying company exhibition with software vendors and service providers of the simulation industry create, in addition to the scientific program, manifold opportunities for in-depth discussions and for getting to know current topics and offers. Presentations are available in German and English.

We look forward to welcoming you to Ilmenau in September 2023!
