NAFEMS, the International Association for the Engineering Analysis Community is holding its 2011 World Congress in the next few weeks between the 23rd and 26th of May in Boston, MA, USA and with limited places remaining, time is running out to get involved with the forthcoming event.
The NAFEMS World Congress, sponsored by Simulia, is the only event dedicated to showcasing the state-of-the-art and state-of -practice in the simulation world in an impartial forum, open to everyone with an interest in how to get the most from their use of simulation. The highly anticipated event will be attended by over 300 delegates – our largest attendance at a World Congress so far. With over 150 presentations in more than 40 sessions, it signifies the most comprehensive and wide-ranging collection of analysis and simulation specific papers available from one independent, international event, so there is little surprise that the Congress is nearly at full capacity. However, there is still an opportunity to secure one of the remaining places at the event!
“The response for this year’s congress has been phenomenal, making it our largest ever. We are extremely confident that it will not only be our biggest event to date, but also our best. ” – David Quinn, Head of Marketing & Communications at NAFEMS
NAFEMS is also excited to announce the very recent addition of Dr Ahmed Noor of Old Dominion University to the already impressive list of keynote speakers. Dr Noor’s presentation will focus on the use of “virtual worlds” for CAE product development and training, which is sure to one of the highlights of the congress. Dr Noor is a Fellow of the National Institute of Aerospace (NIA), the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, American Society of Mechanical Engineers, American Society of Civil Engineers, the American Academy of Mechanics, and the U.S. Association for Computational Mechanics; as well as being a Founding Member of both the International and U.S. Associations of Computational Mechanics, and is a Past President of USACM.
His current professional focus is intelligent design and synthesis environments, advanced learning technologies, aerospace structures, structural and computational mechanics, multiscale modeling, simulation and visualization, and new computing systems. As a renowned scholar, the addition of Dr Noor to the current list of keynote speakers is already causing excitement amongst delegates and is sure to result in a final surge of registrations before the event so those interested should register now or miss out!
This year’s congress will provide delegates with:
Representatives from the world’s largest corporations have already confirmed their attendance at the event, and will mingle alongside delegates from academic institutions, 'one-man' consultancies, software vendors and others, with one common goal - to learn and share experience in engineering analysis, simulation, and associated technologies, in order to positively impact on their products, processes and bottom line.
This year’s technical tracks will include:
· Fatigue & Fracture
· Industrial Applications
· Business Benefits
· Dynamics & Testing
· Analysis Management
· Simulation Data Management
· Seismic Analysis
· High Performance Computing
· Business Benefits of Simulation
· ...and many more
· Non-Linear Analysis
· Composite FE Analysis
· Dynamic FE Analysis
· Fatigue & Fracture Mechanics in FE Analysis
· Promoting the Adoption of High Performance Computing (HPC) for Engineering Simulation
· Progress in Simulating Composite Materials and Structures
· Simulation Data Management
NAFEMS’ World Congress is jam-packed and is a must for anyone who revolves around engineering analysis and simulation.
“The world congress represents real value for delegates”, Tim Morris, NAFEMS CEO commented “This is our flagship event and is really an essential part of what NAFEMS does as an organisation – connecting everyone involved in analysis and simulation”.
