Innovating Real-Time Communities

For the past 13 years, OPAL-RT’s real-time simulation conferences have attracted thousands of attendees worldwide. Our community of experts, customers, partners, academics, professionals, and enthusiasts has grown since then. For the second consecutive year, we will host a free 24h virtual conference through an interactive platform that will feature networking activities, a series of seminars, exhibits, demos, and much more—all focused on simulation solutions for power systems, and the automotive and aerospace industries.

Innovation is in our community’s DNA, and we know we cannot solve all challenges on our own. #RT21’s main goal is to bring the community together to share ideas, our respective strengths and to expand our connections–and finally, to inspire you to innovate. Join us at #RT21 and let’s bring innovation to the world.
