Zuken and Vitech Announce Co-Located Industry Events

Zuken Innovation World and Vitech Integrate planned for San Antonio, Texas in 2022

September 14th, 2021 – WESTFORD, MA, USA and MUNICH, GERMANY – Zuken and Vitech, a Zuken Company, announced co-located events for June of 2022. The inaugural Vitech Integrate, an international symposium for Digital Engineering will take place alongside Zuken Innovation World Americas, the annual Zuken USA user and technology conference. The events will share a common keynote, exhibit area, networking, and social functions.

Focus on Digital Engineering

Digital Engineering will play a central role in the co-located events. As companies look to Digital Engineering to address increasing product complexity and improve the product development process, they have many unanswered questions. The conference agenda is built to bring clarity to the Digital Engineering process from model construction and relevance to implementation.

“Our goal is to bring together the digital engineering community with a compelling agenda spanning the entire digital engineering design process,” said Kent McLeroth, president and CEO of Zuken USA. “These co-located events are unique in that they offer our attendees a collaborative experience where systems engineering and detailed design meet.”

Zuken Innovation World

After a successful virtual ZIW conference series in 2021, Zuken is planning the return of their popular in-person events in 2022. Zuken Innovation World (ZIW) conferences take place in locations around the globe starting in the spring and continuing into the early fall months. The event is centered on the three pillars of networking, learning, and innovation and will feature multiple technical tracks showcasing how-to and best practices using the Zuken tool suites as well as introduce innovative design methodologies and industry trends. Over the years, the ZIW conference series has built up a solid reputation for quality and depth of information. 2019 ZIW attendee, Peggy Wallace, with LAM Research noted, “Incredibly informative, between learning new skills and the roadmap, I can immediately improve productivity and prepare for the future.”

Vitech Integrate

The Vitech Integrate symposium aims to foster dynamic, vibrant discussions around all areas of digital engineering, with a focus on open and connected solutions. The symposium’s technical program features three presentation tracks from world-renowned experts covering topics such as model-based systems engineering (MBSE), artificial intelligence in systems and product design, smart manufacturing, digital engineering in an industrial context, system safety and reliability, cybersecurity, and enterprise architecture. Selected presentations will emphasize novel methods and approaches to solving real-world problems and will not be limited to any specific tooling.

The in-person co-located events are planned for June 6-9, 2022, at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter, located in San Antonio, Texas. The call for presentations will open on October 1, 2021, with early bird registration starting on February 1, 2022.

Global upcoming ZIW events include:

  • May 3-4, 2022 – Darmstadt, Germany
  • June 3, 2022 – Lucern, Switzerland
  • June 6-9, 2022 – San Antonio, Texas
  • June 14, 2022 – Bologna, Italy
  • June 16, 2022 – Paris, France
  • September 29, 2022 – Birmingham, United Kingdom
  • October 2022 – Yokohama, Japan
