Registration for the plenary meeting

For all interested parties, the MaterialDigital platform is organizing a plenary meeting for the MaterialDigital initiative on 18 and 19 September 2024, at BAM in Berlin.

We look forward to welcoming many participants from the initiative, the project teams, industry, our institutes, the project management organization, other initiatives and, of course, external interested parties. We are focusing on an active exchange and discussions about the digitalization of materials science and engineering.

On the first day of the plenary session, the MaterialDigital platform will introduce itself and discuss highlights from its areas of work. In an industry session, industry representatives will present their digitalization efforts in their respective companies in short pitches. The MaterialDigital projects will then present their approaches to digitalization using demonstrator pitches, posters and demonstrators. The day will end with a summary and an outlook for the second day.

From 6 pm we are planning a joint dinner at the venue. There are no additional costs for you.

The second day of the event will begin with a keynote speech, followed by a poster session. In the subsequent workshops, invited presentations on the topics of semantic interoperability, workflows and architecture & IT infrastructure will be given and put up for discussion. The MaterialDigital2 projects will then report on the status of their work. Finally, the MaterialDigital platform will present its current status on the demonstrator and discuss it in the plenary session.

There is a graduated participation fee for the event.
Early Bird (Registration until July 31st) - 160€
From August 1st until registration deadline (31.08.24) - 210€
Registration and payment is made via the registration link at BAM

We are looking forward to your participation!
