Special Engineering Symposium "Digital Breakthroughs for Next Generation Plants" [Japanese]

Mar. 14 (Thu) 13:40-17:40
Hall Z (Multi-Activity Bldg. 6F Lecture Hall)

Program is here.

The development of digital technologies such as IoT, AI, big data and sensors is progressing rapidly, and while there are various options on how it will affect the chemical engineering industry, these technologies are expected to have a significant impact on the planning, design, engineering, construction and O&M of process plants.
A special engineering symposium will be held to examine this revolution, with lectures and discussions relating to the EPC, O&M and control of plant operations and will include specific examples, together with two key note speeches on the government policy trends and the latest developments regarding this digitalization.
