The 1st Digital Twin Workshop

The original concept of Digital Twin was to mirror the life of very complex systems with a series of integrated sub-models that reflected different features of these systems by considering historical data as well as sensor data, including in this way interactions of the system with the real world. As other aspects emerged such as the use of the Digital Twin for prognostics and diagnostics activities, the concept now appears as a disruptor of digital simulation for systems engineering and management based on its ability to fuse IoT and AI with simulation. As such, the Digital Twin can be considered as the next step in simulation, as modern systems evolve towards high connectivity through networks and high integration of physical and cyber components. The Workshop intends to investigate this burgeoning domain by the M&S community, and therefore focuses on advances and prospects of the Digital Twin approach from the perspective of M&S.
