Location: Hannover Messe | Convention Center, Room 3A | Messegelände | 30521 Hannover

Industrie 4.0 has reached a new level: Implementable specifications, exchange formats, interfaces, tools, demonstrators and first applications of the Asset Administration Shell (AAS) are now available, enabling interoperability of components in digitized industrial processes. And: The AAS is about to become an international standard of the International Standardization Organization IEC. This is the right time to have a look at:

  • the big picture of AAS integration and interoperability,
  • the characteristics of AAS based applications,
  • first experiences with implementations incl. demonstrators,
  • standardization approaches to secure interoperability
  • the status of international and national partnerships and
  • next technical and organizational steps.

Target participants: We recommend this event especially for members of standardization bodies discussing Industrie 4.0 aspects, managing directors, representatives of associations and of national initiatives for smart manufacturing, system architects, engineers and developers working in businesses of any size.

Are you interested? Please pre-register.
We hereby kindly invite you to join us on Wednesday, 15.7.2020 at Hannover Messe (Convention Center, Room 3A). The event is free of charge but has a limited seat capacity.

The programme will offer presentations and discussions with acknowledged experts, showcase AAS-demonstrators and a “Meet-the-Expert Corner”. The open format gives you the opportunity to discuss practical, detailed and individual application topics with insiders of the AAS development community.

In cooperation with its partners, the working group brings its ideas into international standardization processes.
