Discover the Automation Technology in control rooms of tomorrow at SweAuto24!

Join us at Linköping University for the third edition of the national conference on the future of automated control room environments. Throughout the day, we invite researchers and industrial companies to explore emerging trends and ongoing initiatives in control room automation. These challenges can be applied to everything from maritime and flight control environments to process industry . It’s a day to be inspired, uncover future possibilities and make valuable connections.

This event is tailored for:

  • Researchers and professionals in the field of automation and control room technology.
  • Industry research directors and decision-makers.
  • Anyone intrigued by the captivating realm of automation, particularly in the context of mobility.


This event will be held in English. There is no participation fee. The organizers will provide lunchs and refreshments throughout the day. Contact for questions.
