AnyLogic’s seventh annual Conference will continue to prove the power of collaboration, with both the AnyLogic team and other experienced model developers. Don’t miss the opportunity to see how AnyLogic is being applied across multiple industries, experience innovative ideas and expand your vision of AnyLogic software.
It’s great to attend the AnyLogic Conference because you can see how the tool is being applied across multiple industries, get to exchange ideas with people, see how other people are solving the same problems and see what the best approach is.
Artem Parakhine, PWC
The AnyLogic Conference is a great place to learn more about the product and to receive firsthand information from the AnyLogic developers, as well as practitioners with a huge amount of experience.
Arnd Schirrmann, Airbus Group Innovations
Although we are long-time users of AnyLogic, this is the first time I was able to attend the users Conference. The biggest benefit I got out of was actually to meet some of the GE customers, at a corporate level we have been working with, but did not have those personal relationships with.
Onur Dulgeroglu, Senior Analytics Engineer, GE Global Research
The value I find in attending the AnyLogic Conference, was the multitude of different research and projects that are going on with AnyLogic. It really opened my eyes to some new ideas that we can implement with AnyLogic that we might not have thought of before.

Next generation artificial intelligence: Agent-based simulation + reinforcement learning
The ability to create a mental model of our environment, project forward in time, and take appropriate action is a key element of human intelligence. Combining agent-based simulation with reinforcement learning will lead to a new era of continuously learning agents that accomplish this functionality. Is this the next generation of AI - beyond deep learning?
Join our expert panel of practitioners from simulation and AI as they debate the role of agent-based simulation and reinforcement learning in the broader quest for Artificial Intelligence and conclude with a Q&A.

AnyLogic 8.4, New AnyLogic Cloud Capabilities and Synergy of Simulation and Machine Learning
Dr. Andrei Borshchev, CEO, & Nikolay Churkov, Head of Software Development, & Arash Mahdavi, Simulation Modeling Consultant at The AnyLogic Company
We will walk you through the latest releases of AnyLogic and AnyLogic Cloud. New features in the Material Handling Library include AGVs moving in free space, cranes, lifts, and dynamically configured multi-level networks. You will see how to use the new file management features and how to setup files as inputs for simulations running in AnyLogic Cloud. We will show the latest AnyLogic Cloud API in action, building a custom HTML frontend for a model running in Private Cloud Lite. We will also demo, as a “bonus track”, how AnyLogic simulation models can be used as training environments for deep reinforcement learning.
Don't Forget Your User: Creating Amazing User Interface Design with Little Effort in AnyLogic
Now, he is taking a deep dive into world-class user interface (UI) design with AnyLogic. How can your model be as intuitive and elegant as the best apps around? How can you create and reuse advanced UI objects yourself? Based on several real-world models, Ben will share the UI knowledge that makes his clients jaws drop and keep them wanting to use models again and again.
anyLogistix: Create Your Supply Chain Digital Twin to Enhance Control Tower Visibility
Timofey Popkov, Director of Business Development at The AnyLogic Company
Digital twin buzz is all about in logistics these days. But what exactly is a supply chain digital twin? How can it help improve planning processes and enhance network visibility? Why integrate it with your IT environment? In our presentation, we will address these questions and more as we demo supply chain digital twin development with anyLogistix and how it can run in the AnyLogic Cloud.
