GA Tech’s Dimitri Mavris to Keynote at ASSESS 2018 Congress

CLARKESVILLE, GA, July 10, 2018 – ASSESS Initiative, a broad reaching multi-industry initiative to facilitate a revolution of enablement that will vastly increase the availability and effectiveness of Engineering Simulation is proud to announce that Dimitri Mavris, S.P. Langley NIA Distinguished Regents Professor, Georgia Institute of Technology,will be a keynote speaker at the ASSESS 2018 Congress, to be held at Chateau Elan Winery & Resort, Oct 28 -30, 2018.  Dr. Mavris will be presentingThe Creation of a Digital Twin of the GA Tech Campus.

“I am very pleased to be able to share information about the active project to build asystems based digital twin of the Georgia Tech campus and look forward to engaging discussions on future directions of systems modeling and digital twins,” says Dr. Dimitri Mavris, S.P. Langley NIA Distinguished Regents Professor, Georgia Institute of Technology.

Dimitri Mavris earned his B.S. (1984), M.S. (1985), and Ph.D. (1988), in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Tech. He is the Boeing Chaired Professor of Advanced Aerospace Systems Analysis in Georgia Tech’s School of Aerospace Engineering, Regents Professor, and Director of its Aerospace Systems Design Laboratory (ASDL). He is an S.P. Langley NIA Distinguished Professor, AIAA Fellow, Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society, and a member of the ICAS Executive Committee, the AIAA Institute Development Committee, and the US Air Force Scientific Advisory Board. He is also the Director of the AIAA Technical, Aircraft and Atmospheric Systems Group.

For the past 25 years, Prof. Mavris and ASDL have specialized in the integration of multi-disciplinary physics-based modeling and simulation tools. ASDL’s signature methods streamline the process of integrating parametric simulation toolsets and enable huge runtime improvements that facilitate large scale design space exploration and optimization under uncertainty. Recent research focuses on combining these methods with advances in computing to enable large-scale virtual experimentation for complex systems design.

“We are very honored and excited to have Dr. Mavris present at our Congress,” says Joe Walsh, CEO & co-founder of the ASSESS Initiative. “Dr. Mavris and the ASDL at GA Tech have been a world-renowned driving force for the advancement of Model Based Systems Engineering.”

The ASSESS 2018 Congress is the 3rd annual congress for ASSESS organized to “enable” both strategies and relationships related to significantly increasing the use and benefit of Engineering Simulation. Key business drivers are forcing a “simulation revolution” to overcome the issue of required expertise which is limiting the expansion of Engineering Simulation usage. The theme of the ASSESS 2018 Congress is “Launching the Engineering Simulation Revolution.”

Registration for the ASSESS 2018 Congress is by invitation only and is limited to 115 attendees. Registration will close either when all available seats are taken but no later than October 24, 2018.

The ASSESS Initiative was formed to bring together key players, both users and developers of simulation software,to guide and influence the software tool strategies for performing model-based analysis, simulation, and systems engineering with a vision “To significantly expand the use and benefit of software tools for model-based analysis, simulation, and systems engineering in the engineering applications domain.”

The ASSESS Initiative Membership program provides the ability for the ASSESS Initiative to expand its efforts and community benefits beyond the annual congress. The ASSESS Membership Program is appropriate for all organizations engaged in Analysis, Simulation, and Systems Engineering activities related to Engineered products & processes.  The ASSESS Membership Program is offered in individual or group memberships.  Active ASSESS Initiative Members receive access to Members Only content on the ASSESS website and a discount on the ASSESS Congress Registration Fees.

About the ASSESS Initiative

ASSESS Initiative LLC was formed in mid-2016 for bringing together the key players to guide and influence the software development and implementation strategies related to model-based analysis, simulation, and systems engineering, with the primary objective of expanding the use and business benefit of Engineering Simulation. ASSESS Initiative LLC is based in Clarkesville, GA, USA.  Please refer to their website and the following brief summary “What is the ASSESS Initiative and why is it important?” for more information.
