The Scientific Committee for the symposium has accepted 50 abstracts. The presentations are grouped into 10 topic areas: DHM in Production Planning, DHM in Automotive, Body Shape and Anthropometry, DHM in Biomechanics, Hand Modeling, Exoskeletons, DHM Using Finite Element Modeling, DHM in Packaging, DHM Modeling Methods, and Virtual Reality and Digital Twin. Keynote speakers are Col. Kevin A. Bigelman the Holistic Health and Fitness (H2F) Director at the U.S. Army Center for Initial Military Training, and Sébastien Lozé, Unreal Engine Business Director–Simulations at Epic Games. The program is available at
