12th Graz Symposium Virtual Vehicle (GSVF)

May 7-8, 2019  |  Seifenfabrik, Graz, Austria


Continuous Integration and Agile Engineering

Processes, Methods, Tools and Applications
A disruptive change in vehicle development


GSVF 2019 will address the up-coming disruptive change in industries from strictly vertical to broadly horizontal vehicle development approaches. Agile enriched processes are capable for coping with related complexity, quality, costs and timely delivery – speeding-up system delivery for ensuring competitiveness and market-shares.

About the symposium

Agile principles typically require a radical change in the established development frameworks, the organizational structures and the implemented methods & tools. A strict modularization of systems in terms of software and hardware, flexible teams as well as a appropriate development infrastructures are key for having success. Especially for vehicle engineering related processes, methods and tools must be developed, extended and implemented, which opens up huge potentials for applied research and for businesses.

First applications have already proven the possible gain through more agile and collaborative engineering – now the task is to exploit the hidden potentials in industry and to apply these innovative concepts to up-coming applications like automated driving function evaluation w.r.t. to vehicle safety.

The GSVF 2019 focuses on new trends, methods, and tools for

  • Model-based Systems Engineering
  • Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment
  • Agile enriched Engineering Processes
  • Change Management
  • Automation in Simulation for System Development
  • Virtual Homologation of Automotive Systems
  • Data- and Information Management

Main Application Use Cases

  • Automated Driving and Assistance Systems
  • Cooperative/Integrated Vehicle Safety
  • Energy Management

Graz, Austria


Drive with the Schlossbergbahn or the elevator up to the Schlossberg. Have a look at the cathedral of Graz or the Mausoleum nearby, too, before you can get up to the Burg & Double Spiral Staircase that is located on the opposite side.




In 1872, the Poudrette factory was built on the site next to the Mur, including a freestanding fireplace and half-timbered hall. In the summer of 2001, the listed building was revitalized and expanded in 2003 to today’s event center.
