Digital Engineering Conference

April 25-26, 2023

7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. MT.

Idaho National Laboratory, 775 MK Simpson Blvd, Idaho Falls, ID

You’re invited to the multi-national laboratory-hosted digital engineering conference!

Idaho National Laboratory will be hosting the first in-person, cross-national laboratory Digital Engineering conference.

Digital Engineering embodies a deliberate transformational approach to the way systems are conceptualized, designed, constructed, operated, maintained and retired.

The event will feature guest speakers from across the digital industry and provide an opportunity to foster collaborations that will enhance our nation’s digital future with discussions on:

  • Digital Twins
  • Model-Based Systems Engineering 
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Digital Thread and Computing
  • Instrumentation, Control, and Cyber Resilience
  • Decision Science and Visualization
  • Model-Based Definition (CAD)
