Two Full Days of Learning, Exploration, and Networking

Whether you attend both days, or just one, we’ve designed each day to be equally exciting, informative, and filled with plenty of opportunities to connect with peers.

Day 01

Conference Day

This day consists of the keynote and speaker sessions. After the conference, spend your night enjoying live entertainment, dinner, and wine on the M/S Waxholm III as we celebrate Modelon Innovate.

Day 02

Training Day

This is a full day dedicated to hands-on workshops and training courses with Modelon technology. All current and prospective Modelon users are encouraged to attend. There is limited availability within each course on Day 2.

Speaker Sessions and Abstracts


  • The world is ever changing and constantly needs innovation to meet the needs of customers. Companies and research organizations have always needed to organize themselves for this, in the most effective ways. However, with the climate change imperative, the rate of change has greatly accelerated, but unfortunately occurring just after the economic shock of a global pandemic. This presentation will cover this background, discussing the needs for significant changes in product designs and the trends in simulation engineering to economically address these challenges. It will encompass both near term step changes and more radical future looking opportunities in simulation.
