Digital Twin Lab

Digital Twin Workshop

This informal workshop hosted on Feb 8 2022 was intended to help identify and bring together members of the academic community at Texas A&M who were interested in studying and building digital twins.

The workshop was organized with the support of the Texas A&M Department of Visualization, Texas A&M Institute of Data Science, the Internet2 Technology Evaluation Center, and Texas A&M High-Performance Research Computing.

Please feel free to contact Dr. Jian Tao if you have any questions or suggestions.
