Essen, 8.10.2018 – Madrid in Spain was the destination for more than 96 delegates from 28 countries and 41 companies to join the SIMONE Congress on Pipeline Simulation and Optimization 2018, organized by LIWACOM Informationstechnik GmbH, Essen and SIMONE Research Group s.r.o., Prague.
The congress was the 14th congress in a row since 1991 and LIWACOM’s 30th birthday.
The opening speech with a journey back into the past was held by the founding father G. Wagner and supported by J. Kralik.
The main focus of the technical program was on engineering, simulation and dispatching/operations as presented by our customers showing their experience with SIMONE but also providing the ability to take the broader view.
The program was rounded up by giving an outline to new features and development directions.
The social program followed the tradition of the SIMONE congresses to visit places of historical, natural or human interest. The choice was between City Tour, Prado Tour and the Bernabeu Stadium which was followed by the congress dinner held in Casa Patas, a traditional tavern restaurant. After dinner a fascinating flamenco show brought us into the right mood to celebrate the 30th birthday with a marvelous cake and cava.
The organizers of the SIMONE Congress, LIWACOM Informationstechnik Gmbh of Essen, Germany and SIMONE Research Group s.r.o. of Prague/Czech Republic, would like to express their deep thanks to all speakers for their excellent presentations.
