Simulation is now established in many engineering companies as part of their product development process. Whilst the Congress will cover many aspects of the use of simulation, a particular focus will be how the appropriate deployment of simulation can lead to a further competitive advantage through helping to stimulate innovation.
The NAFEMS World Congress 2007 is shaping up to be the largest and most successful NAFEMS event ever. Over 200 abstracts were submitted from around the globe, and the final list of over 150 papers can be found on the Congress website.
The Congress will cover all aspects of engineering analysis and simulation, including FEA, CFD, BEM, MBS, Molding, Virtual Reality, and many others. Speakers come from across the globe, and from industry, academia and software vendors, to ensure that attendees will have access to the widest ranging program possible.
As well as the main technical tracks, the NAFEMS World Congress will also give attendees access to a comprehensive program of training courses, workshops, seminars and meetings, which are open to all. These include sessions on Multiphysics, High Performance Computing, Simulation Education and Model Quality, as well as courses on Advanced FEA and Verification and Validation. There will also be active involvement from ASME and AIAA, ensuring that the NAFEMS World Congress is an unmissable date in the simulation calendar.
Keynote speakers come from a wide-range of industrial and academic backgrounds, giving attendees the opportunity to gain a vital insight into the state-of-the-art and state-of-practice in the simulation world.
