The workshop on Conceptual Modeling for Digital Twins (CoMoDiTy) aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working on modeling concepts, methods, and tools for bringing the vision of digital twins to life. As such, it aspires to be a truly interdisciplinary meeting for researchers from conceptual modeling, model-driven software and systems engineering, and production engineering.
As CoMoDiTy 2020 serves to have fruitful discussions between participants from conceptual modeling, model-driven software and systems engineering, and production engineering.
In line with the ER 2020, CoMoDiTy 2020 is going virtual as well.

Thomas Bednar: Towards a multistakeholder IT environment for developing, constructing and operating buildings and cities based on digital twins and shadows. Lessons learned from the project SIMULTAN and the follow-up "Virtuelle Flughafenstadt"
Abstract: Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the production and operation of buildings and infrastructure to below zero requires extensive measures at all levels. Moreover, solutions must be understandable to all stakeholders. A high level of transparency and cooperation is needed in order to find ways together and to learn from implementation steps. An according proof-of-concept was developed as part of the SIMULTAN project. It demonstrates how a complete, open meta-data model can be generated from stakeholder needs regarding analysis and simulation. Together with Vienna Airport this proof-of-concept was further developed beyond the single building. This enables the master planning of a city and its infrastructure. Partially automated, also the operation efficiency of buildings and infrastructures can be assured based on a meta-data model. During the life cycle of buildings and infrastructure, detailed models (digital twins) as well as simplified models (digital shadows) are used as decision tools.
Vita: Thomas BEDNAR, M.Sc. and Ph.D. from TU Wien, is a full professor for Building Physics at TU Wien - Vienna University of Technology. His main research focus are prediction models for hygrothermal and acoustic performance of buildings. He has written many papers related to energy use, moisture and building acoustics both on calculations and measurements and is now finishing projects on plus-plus energy high rise office buildings or safeguarding wooden beam ends after renovations of brick-buildings from 1900. Since leading the doctoral school URBEM at TU Wien focusing on the urban energy and mobility system he is head of the development of multistakeholder IT-enviroment SIMULTAN at TU Wien for developing and understanding the built environment.
