IIC 2024

Innovation in Digital Factory & Production Planning

18.09. - 19.09.2024 | Munich

The IIC 2024 is the specialist conference covering all relevant topics of digital factory and work planning and the virtual commissioning.

Two cutting-edge keynotes from BMW & NVIDIA form the framework for interesting best practice examples from the industry and interactive user workshops. A special highlight will be the presentation of the latest features of the ema Software Suite (imk) and the RF::Suite (EKS).

The supporting programme with a city tour of Munich and dinner in a traditional brewery offers excellent opportunities for networking. The excursions to the BMW plant and into BMW Museum round off the event.
