The keynote speakers for this year's conference will be Phil White, co-founder of Cervélo. "I am delighted that Phil has agreed to deliver our keynote this year. Cervélo's journey from the university lab to the front of the professional peleton was fueled largely by engineering simulation; their story is the perfect embodiment of our 'a World of Engineering Success' conference theme," said Bill Clark, Senior VP of Operations, CD-adapco.
"With a presentation titled, 'The Importance of Innovation in a Competitive World,' Phil will share the company's comprehensive approach to design, simulation, and analysis and how it can put you in front of the competition."
Participating companies at this year's event include, but are not limited to, Airbus Military, Lockheed Martin, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Ford, Nissan, Atkins, MSi Kenny, Tetra Pak, Wärtsilä, Behr, Ford, Magna Powertrain. Also in attendance will be over 20 industrial technology partners and sponsors. CD-adapco's engineering simulation specialists, developers and management will also be on hand to meet and network with attendees.
The full agenda can be viewed on the conference website: http://www.cd-adapco.com/downloads/newsletters/201 2/conference/index2.html.
In addition to the conference, attendees may choose from a selection of training events and workshops, including STAR-CCM+ v7 Orientation Training, Best Practices in Turbulence and Heat Transfer Modeling, and Meshing and Surface Preparation. There will also be dedicated workshops for ICE (Internal Combustion Engines), Chemical, Battery Design, and Electric Motors.
Attendees will learn the secret of how to use CAE more effectively in their organization, perform more simulations for less effort, and begin exploring the whole design space rather than a few points. They will leave the event with a complete understanding of the business benefits of simulation and realistic implementation strategies for their organization.
