This presentation will demonstrate these trends and the impact they can have to your design studio.

Emanuel Schupik, Autodesk - Future of Making Things What’s the impact of consumers moving between multiple online and offline marketing channels during their purchase journey? What should automotive OEMs and dealers do to make most out of their one shot at customer attention? Learn how a consistent and personalized customer journey drives both product perception and purchase decisions.

Swen Niebann, Autodesk – Digital Factory of the Future The way of manufacturing products is facing a lot of technology driven opportunities of change. How to deal with the tremendous increase of complexity and amount of data? In this session we will share our vision of the "Factory of the Future" - How we can manage complexity and ensure informed decision making along the whole Factory Life Cycle.

14.30 - 15.00

Ronnie Parsons, Mode Lab - Generative isn't a toolset, it's a mindset A new breed of thinkers are disrupting traditional approaches to problem solving and using technology to radically change the future of making things. Think crowd-sourcing, big data, open-source, and algorithms. So how can we take advantage of this trend in our work and with our own projects?

Peter Kärrlander, Scania CV AB - The role of visualization when designing Scania’s exhibition stands In this session I will show how we at Scania uses Real-time visualization when designing our exhibition stands. Explain and show how we use Autodesk products in the process to prepare for visualization in VRED and Virtual walk-throughs in Unity. I will also show how to bring in human characters to enhance and bring the virtual sets to life.

Nunzio Di Bartolo & Roberta Sampieri, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles - 3Dimensions of a Challenge - Innovation with Additive Manufacturing: In this session FCA will share its long experience in Additive Manufacturing and current growth and trends. Main milestones and projects to support product development and manufacturing will be described, such as lightening and innovation in hot stamping tooling, and a new interpretation of AM as a tool for sustainability.

15.30 - 16.00

Matthew Sederberg, Autodesk - Next Generation Design Collaboration This presentation will explore the broad investments that Autodesk is making to make design collaboration of the future a reality, as well more concrete areas that the Autodesk automotive team is focusing on like augmented reality and visual asset management to break down barriers in studios today.

Marek Trawny, Autodesk - An Enterprise wide CGI Pipeline - Powered by VRED Is a “single-source-of-truth” something you embrace with your CGI pipeline? Autodesk has been innovating on behalf of connecting the dots in both workflows and collaboration tools – a single source of data for all digital touch points is the logical step to mastering enterprise visualization. See how Autodesk can help you to fuel your CGI pipeline.

René Szepanski, Unity AG and Marin Mandov, Otte Projektmanagement GmbH - Simultaneous Up Front Design for a Digital Factory The Cycle time to get a factory up and running is decreasing extremely. To operate the factory is driven by change. Flexibility will be a competitive advantage. This session’s red line is how to gain this advantage with an Integrated Factory Model of the real factory and how to implement it. During the presentation we will showcase a recently conducted project "Wheels and Brakes" with Lufthansa Technik at the Frankfurt Airport.

16.00 - 16.30

Eduard Jundt, Volkswagen - Projection-based Augmented Reality @ Volkswagen What is projection based augmented reality and how can it be used to enhance the design and development of a new cars?
