13-15 May 2025, Kaunas

The BDTIC is the 5th international conference dedicated to Building Digital Twins.

Organized by the Building Digital Twin Association

About the event:

The Building Digital Twin International Congress (BDTIC) will celebrate its fifth edition on May 14-15 in Kaunas, Lithuania. The Congress is organized by the Building Digital Twin Association (BDTA) in collaboration with Kaunas University of Technology (KTU) and the SmartWins project – www.ktu.edu, www.smartwins-project.eu.

The Congress will be held in a hybrid format, similar to previous editions at BEACON in Belgium and CAATEEB and COAC in Barcelona. This year, BDTIC will take place at the Conference Centre of Santaka Valley at Kaunas University of Technology, a hub where business, research, and innovation converge. The two-day event will feature workshops and networking on the first day, followed by keynote addresses, demonstrations, and presentations on advancements in scientific research on the second day.

The Congress will address issues related to Civil Infrastructure Digital Twins, Digital Twin use cases, and highlight European R&D projects in this field. In addition to the main event, a brokerage event will be organized, and early-career researchers, including PhD students, will be invited to a Spring School on Digital Twins. The exact agenda and dates will be announced in early October 2025.

Take this opportunity to visit Kaunas, a former European Capital of Culture in 2022 and the only Hanseatic city in Lithuania. Located at the confluence of the Nemunas and Neris rivers, Kaunas is renowned for its Modernist architecture from 1919-1939, which is included in the UNESCO World Heritage list. Kaunas University of Technology is one of the largest technical universities in the Baltics and a leader in advancing digital twin technologies. Kaunas can be accessed directly via its airport or through the capital city, Vilnius, by rail.

The conference will follow a Zero Waste approach, encouraging participants to use sustainable transportation and offset their CO2 footprints where possible.
