Dr. Joel Orr is Chief Visionary and Vice-President of Cyon Research Corporation, a leading consulting and publishing firm. His 30 years of helping engineering professionals deal with computers at the strategic level have worn the edge off his PhD in math, and he no longer proves although he still waves his hands quite a bit. He has been an Autodesk Distinguished Fellow and a Bentley Engineering Laureate, and has received numerous industry awards. His book, "The Dandelion Principle: Structuring for Greatness," is due out March 15 (http://www.dandelionprinciple.com).
"We are delighted to have a man of Dr. Orr's stature presenting at this year's VirtualMCAD show," says David Heller, IBSystems' President. Dr. Orr's topic is "The End of CAD." According to Dr. Orr, "Simulation is what CAD becomes when it grows up. It is "the end" of CAD in the sense that it is what happens when CAD has fully matured, and also in the sense of "the goal" of CAD. Whether you are a user or a vendor of MCAD, you need to understand where it is going."
This year's VirtualMCAD show will feature keynote addresses, technical papers and presentations, and multimedia exhibits that showcase the latest CAD trends from a broad spectrum of CAD vendors. Visitors will be able to chat with exhibitor representatives, pick up literature, view videos and other multimedia presentations, and download free demo software.
Early bird registration and complete show information is now available at www.virtualmcad.com, and early registrants will qualify to win an hp IPAQ PDA. They will also be entered into a sweepstakes for one of three PocketCad software programs for use on handheld computers, from Arc Second, Inc.
