The registration ended on June 12th. During the last day of the conference we will disseminate highlights from the center after 8 years in operation. We also have some invited external keynote speakers on the program on the last day. Prof. Sebastian Trimpe, Institute for Data Science in Mechanical Engineering, RWTH Achen University will give an introduction to learning based approaches for dynamical systems and control*. Elling Rishoff, Senior Vice President DNV Incubation, will talk about digitalization challenges in the offshore industries.

We are looking forward to to seeing you!
*Background on the topic learning for dynamics and control
“The explosion of real-time data that is emerging from the physical world requires a rapprochement of areas such as machine learning, control theory, and optimization. While control theory has been firmly rooted in the tradition of model-based design, the availability and scale of data (both temporal and spatial) will require rethinking the foundations of our discipline. From a machine learning perspective, one of the main challenges going forward is to go beyond pattern recognition and address problems in data-driven control and optimization of dynamical processes.” L4DC.org
You are invited to this innovation workshop initiated by NORCE Norwegian Research Centre, SFI Offshore Mechatronics and SFI Smart Ocean and GCE NODE and GCE Ocean Technology. The workshop will explore ocean technologies that will form the basis for future needs within operation and maintenance in the offshore, marine and maritime sectors.
SFI Offshore Mechatronics are now in its ending phase while SFI Smart Ocean is still in its startup phase. These two SFIs have overlapping and adjacent thematic areas which is relevant for the evolving offshore renewable energy sector and ocean farming. Common possibilities relevant for the industry will be approached in the workshop.
Who is the workshop intended for?
The workshop is relevant for everyone working in offshore, marine, and maritime sectors. It is especially for those who design, service or operate systems related to monitoring, performance tracking and decision support.
What is the goal of this workshop?
The goal is to create an arena where stakeholders from different regions and along the value chains within offshore, marine, and maritime industries meet to discuss common challenges and opportunities. Through sharing our perspectives and outcomes of the SFI we believe we will gain an insightful and genuine innovation processes.
The program contains selected inspirational talks from academia and industry, and a workshop element where the participants will suggest and develop their ideas in collaboration. The organizers are open for coordinating efforts originating from the workshop to initiate cooperation for further developing selected prominent topics.

We are starting up a new series of our webinars. The topic this time is software and tools for modeling and simulation and the scope is methods and approaches to cross-domain and cross-tool simulations.
The webinars should be of interest to modeling & simulation (M&S) professionals as well as software teams supporting M&S based services. The webinars are open and anyone can join!
We have scheduled three webinars in November and December:
Marine applications of co-simulation
Glenn Tørå, cDynamics
