- 170 participants from 21 countries
- Featured topics: civil engineering, construction of large bridges, BIM in bridge construction and construction planning
Oberschleißheim/Nuremberg, May 11, 2016 —- The 25th SOFiSTiK Seminar on April 22 and 23 in
Munich was a complete success. Attracting 170 attendees from 21 countries, this year’s conference ‘Connecting Continents’ was an even greater success than previous years. The 15 presentations given by SOFiSTiK customers from all over the world were a big part of it, providing outstanding insights into the latest technology for analysis, dimensioning, and engineering of construction projects. The participants praised the diversity of topics presented at the event: “The SOFiSTiK Seminar touched on every aspect of an engineer’s daily work, including everything from complex bridge projects to questions that are almost philosophical in nature, such as how to deal with known unknowns since it is impossible to anticipate and plan for all contingencies in a project,” explained a participant during the conference.
Due to the event’s international character and the increasing internationalization of SOFiSTiK’s business, all presentations were held in English or interpreted simultaneously into English.
Beyond the presentations, one of the main attractions of the SOFiSTiK Seminar is the free exchange of ideas among participants. “Experiences are shared among different organizations, competitors meet here as colleagues, giving each other inspiration, and that ends up helping everyone make progress,” explained Thomas Fink, SOFiSTiK’s CEO. “We’re very pleased to have created a forum where leading engineers from around the world can benefit from in-depth professional knowledge sharing.” The conference is intended for anyone interested in using software to simplify and accelerate construction planning and design processes.
