NAFEMS Vice President, Americas, Matt Ladzinski comments:
“The 2016 NAFEMS Americas Conference is shaping up to become the largest ever NAFEMS regional conference, likely doubling the attendance of past NAFEMS Americas Conferences. In large part, this is due to a dynamic keynote line-up, new tracks which align with the industry’s interests, and a number of panel discussions on key topics. Also, thanks to the conference app which we’ve developed for attendees at this conference, we have been able to quantify session interest based on each user’s personalized schedule and allocate the session rooms accordingly. Of particular point was the higher than anticipated levels of interest in the Democratization of CAE track, which is now being identified by registrants as the first mini-symposium on Democratization.”
