Industry of the Future Day

Find out more about SIMODEC conferences, workshops and highlights !

9:30am-11am : Conference: Daring to combine the industry of the future with the present

Conference organized by Agence Auvergne Rhône-Alpes entreprises, CCI Haute-Savoie, Cetim, CSM, SNDEC, Thésame - Workshop area B1


Industry of the Future is no longer a distant vision, but a tangible reality that is shaping the way we design, produce and deliver. In an ever-changing world, this conference will guide listeners through concrete examples and pragmatic solutions that demonstrate how to combine the future with the present to boost efficiency, sustainability and innovation. Identify the challenges facing companies in this transition and explore concrete strategies, facilitate experience sharing through exchanges between participants, speakers and experts.

Conference objectives: 

  • Present concrete case studies on artificial intelligence, the digitization of workshops, robotics and the place of the human being in this industry.
  • Understand the challenges and solutions : identify the challenges facing companies in this transition, and explore concrete strategies.
  • Facilitate experience sharing : encourage exchanges between participants, speakers and experts


Together, let's explore how to bring the industry of the future into the present !



11am-12pm : Reducing your carbon footprint: financing your energy transition and optimizing your energy costs

     - GRDF : An industry that decarbonizes with biomethane according to the 3 "C" rule : Carbon Content divided by 6, Circularity of the Local Economy, Conversion of the industrial tool

     - Broker : outlook energy prices, green gas, GO

     - ARAE : presentation of financial support for supported projects

     - Caisse Epargne : Impacts Loans, Energy Transition

     - Exchanges


2pm-3pm : Residual stresses induced by machining : how to predict them ?

Conference organized by CETIM - Workshop area B1


Considering the impact of manufacturing processes on component functionality (fatigue life, corrosion resistance, dimensional stability) is essential in certain sectors. Numerical developments on the prediction of residual stresses in machining carried out through the MISU Chair project will be presented. This work focuses not on the effect of pre-machining internal stress relaxation at part scale, but on the effect of cutting on locally generated residual stresses. Application of the methods to a case of 316L bar turning will illustrate the use of MISULAB software.




3:30pm-4:30pm : Environmental regulatory watch : an asset rather than a constraint ?

Conference organized by CSM Haute-Savoie - Workshop area B1


Conference "La veille règlementaire environnementale: un atout plus qu'une contrainte?" by Fabien POURPRIX, Secretary General, APORA Association Régionale des Entreprises pour l'Environnement and Véronique GUISEPPIN, Head of the Environment Department - Safety Engineer, CSM Haute-Savoie.

4pm - 5pm : CERN, FCC, interactions with industry

Conference organized by CERN - Auditorium


CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world's largest and most prestigious scientific laboratories. Its vocation is fundamental physics, the discovery of the constituents and laws of the Universe. It uses highly complex scientific instruments - gas pedals and particle detectors - to probe the ultimate constituents of matter, known as "fundamental particles". Gas pedals carry beams of particles at high energies, making them collide with other beams or with fixed targets. Detectors observe and record the results of these collisions. By studying what happens when these particles collide, physicists understand the laws of Nature.

To build, operate and maintain its gas pedal complex and infrastructure, CERN relies on industry, with which it has numerous supply, service and R&D contracts.

Although the organization's scientific activity is planned for the next two decades, CERN has launched a study for the realization of a new-generation Future Circular Collider (FCC), with a size of 91 kilometers in circumference. This initiative offers an opportunity to collaborate with local industry to meet a number of technological challenges.

CERN remains firmly committed to respect for the environment and sustainability, fundamental values that guide its initiatives.

This presentation will give you a general understanding of CERN, give you more information about the future Circular Collider, and explain the many interactions between CERN and industry.




4:30 pm - 5:30 pm : Air quality workshop - Improving atmospheric emissions in your machining / bar turning activity.

Workshop organized by SNDEC and CETIM - Workshop area B1


Contents :  


- Background Study of atmospheric emissions from bar turning operations

- Guide to assist the profession in :

             - Reducing identified pollutants at source,

             - Treatment of atmospheric emissions

- Financial assistance


Against the backdrop of a study of atmospheric emissions from bar-turning companies, the presenters present a guide to help the profession. Its aim is to reduce the pollutants identified at source, and to treat atmospheric emissions. The guide also examines the financial assistance available to companies in this field.


5:30pm : Inauguration of SIMODEC


From 7pm : Evening for exhibitors
