NAFEMS NORDIC Conference 2014

Engineering Simulation: Best Practices, New Developments, Future Trends

The conference will provide a unique, independent, neutral, and comprehensive overview of the current state of art in the engineering simulation analysis. 

Invitation + Agenda (pdf)

---------> Online registration

The NAFEMS NORDIC Conference 2014 will be held on 13 - 13 May 2014 at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel in Gothenburg, Sweden. Entitled “Engineering Simulation: Best Practices, New Developments, Future Trends”, the conference will give delegates an unrivalled independent insight into best practices and state-of-the-art which consequently show upcoming trends, tendencies and necessary future needs in FEA, CFD, MBS and associated technologies.

The two-day conference aims to increase awareness and provide a discussion forum for topics that are important and relevant to engineering industrialists and academics.

In addition to the presentations we proudly announce that Tony Abbey, NAFEMS training manager, will give short courses on different technical topics based on the current e-learning courses provided by NAFEMS.

If you are an analyst, engineer, team leader or manager that has a responsibility for ensuring that a fit-for-purpose engineering solution is obtained from the use of modern simulation software, then you should attend.

The event is open to both members and non-members of NAFEMS, with members able to attend the event for free, as part of their membership benefits package. NAFEMS is an independent not-for-profit body with the sole aim of promoting the effective use of engineering simulation methods such as finite element analysis, multibody system dynamics and computational fluid dynamics.

More than 1.100 organisations and institutions all over the world are member of NAFEMS. If you work with simulation, you should be part of NAFEMS. More information at The event is open to both members and non-members of NAFEMS, with members able to attend the event for free, as part of their membership benefits package.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Göteborg.
