Environmental uncertainty and hyperconnectivity force techno-socio-economic systems to introspect and adapt to succeed and survive. The current practice is primarily intuition-driven, which is inconsistent with the need for precision and rigor. The concept of digital twins is rapidly emerging as an experimentation aid to help: (i) understand why a system is the way it is, (ii) prepare for possible outlier conditions; and (iii) identify plausible solutions for mitigating the outlier conditions in an evidence-backed manner. However, its effective use is limited to physical and cyber-physical systems that are governed by well-established laws and operate in environments that are relatively static or that evolve slowly. This workshop brings together leading researchers and practitioners from various fields and from different parts of the world to explore the challenges involved in effectively using digital twin technologies for techno-socio-economic systems, and to exchange ideas, concepts, approaches that aim to address those challenges.
