We are happy to invite you to the Sustainable Places 2022 conference which will be a hybrid event, from 6th September to 9th September, with the in-person sessions hosted in Nice, France. During the event, on 7th September at 14.45, we are organising a special session dedicated to ontologies in Digital Twin.

This workshop is co-organized by the Building Digital Twin Association (BDTA) and 6 EU-funded projects that develop a construction-phase digital-twin data model, and their ontological representation, capable of capturing all data requirements for the digital representation of building and/or infrastructure construction sites.

Participating projects: COGITOBIM2TWIN, BIMproveASHVINSPHERE, and BIMERR.
