Engineering Simulation: A 2020 Vision for the Future
Sterling, VA, July 15th August 2012 – The NAFEMS North America Conference 2012 in Washington D.C. on September 11-12 is set to be the must-attend event of the simulation calendar. Bringing together the leading visionaries, developers, and practitioners of simulation-related technology to share experiences, the conference will provide insightful content and perspective to attendees on how their organization can realize the potential of engineering simulation now – and in the future.
Entitled ‘Engineering Simulation: A 2020 Vision of the Future’ the NAFEMS North America Conference 2012 will bring the engineering analysis and simulation together in a neutral forum to ensure they have the best possible overview of where engineering simulation is headed and ways they can maximize its potential.
“NAFEMS is becoming more and more active in North America and the number of member companies in this region has been increasing year on year. The regional conference gives many of our members, and the wider CAE community, an opportunity to come together and share their experiences. Building on the hugely success of last year’s World Congress in Boston, MA, this will be the only independent event in North America that is dedicated to engineering simulation.” Tim Morris, CEO
With over 50 cutting edge presentations scheduled to take place, in addition to three discussion panels and complementary training courses, the NAFEMS North America Conference 2012 represents the most comprehensive overview in current trends and themes in engineering simulation. As well as the highly anticipated keynote presentations from Ahmed Noor (Old Dominion University) and Jon Riley (VP of Direct Manufacturing at the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences), the following plenary presentations are expected to be highlights of the conference – giving an insight into real industrial applications and challenges:
- CAE and its Role 2020 and Beyond for the Engineering Community
Frank Popielas, Dana Holding Corporation
- Physics-Based Simulation: Helping Shape Future Cat Products
Larry Seitzman, Caterpillar
- Set Based Design Methods with Respect to Design Synthesis and Analysis Tools
Norbert Doerry, Naval Sea Systems Command
- Making Simulation Business Relevant
Chad Jackson, Lifecycle Insights
- Regulatory Perspectives on Computational Modelling
Tina Morrison, Food and Drug Administration
- Computation, Measurement, and Standards
Andrew Dienstfrey, NIST
Abstracts for these and all of the conference’s presentations can be found within conference agenda.
Who Should Attend?
CAE end users, visionaries, researchers, educators, industry managers, and software and hardware developers, all have relevant experience and viewpoints that can help shape the future of engineering simulation.
All are invited to participate, but most importantly to articulate, interact, and evolve their thinking and planning of future activities proactively, enduring all the ingredients necessary to maximize the impact of engineering simulation in tomorrow’s product design environment.
