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: COGITO, BIM2TWIN, BIMprove, ASHVIN, SPHERE, and BIMERR.

Session Chair: Agnieszka Mikolajczyk, ASM Market Research and Analysis Centre
