The seminar showed the latest achievements in the field of city digital twins, including the application of advanced methods and technologies for data modelling, analysis and visualization. This event was preceded by a webinar in January on innovative AI-driven methods in support of Digital Twins. It was inspired by the collaboration between the University of Twente, the Faculty of Geo-information and Earth Observation (ITC), and the GATE Institute in recent years.

The seminar in October was opened by Prof. dr. Freek van de Meer, Dean of the Faculty of Geo-information and Earth Observation, University of Twente, and Prof. Sylvia Ilieva, Director of GATE Institute. Mila Koeva, Associate Professor at ITC, and Prof. Dessislava Petrova-Antonova, Research leader at the GATE Institute, moderated the event.

Among the speakers were Prof. Dessislava Petrova-Antonova; Petar Hristov and Mariya Pantusheva – Senior Researchers at GATE Institute; and Emil Hristov and Angel Spasov – Junior Researchers at GATE.
