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

The inaugural national laboratory-led Digital Engineering conference, led by Idaho National Laboratory, will be hosting a two-hour virtual session in October 2022. This will be followed by a more in-depth in-person event in April 2023.

The upcoming virtual event, Digital Engineering: Aligning Federal Government Needs with National Laboratory Capabilities, will be hosted by Idaho National Laboratory’s Digital Innovation Center Of Excellence (DICE)

It will connect federal program offices interested in pursuing digital engineering solutions with national laboratory staff responsible for developing these solutions. Anticipated federal government representatives include offices from across the Department of Energy and Department of Defense.

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)
