Accelerating the Future of CAE
NAFEMS UK Conference 2014uk14_onsite_brochure_nafems.pdf
Oxford, UK | 10-11 June
What is the future for Computer Aided Engineering (CAE)?
Where is engineering analysis and simulation going?
Where should it be going, and how will we all help get it there?
What are the business, technological, and human enablers that will carry the past successful developments, applications, and business impact of CAE to higher levels during the next decade and beyond?
NAFEMS, the independent association for the engineering analysis community, held its UK conference on the 10th and 11th of June at the Oxford Belfry Hotel, with the primary aim of helping attendees answer these questions. The 2014 NAFEMS UK Conference explored the extent to which the potential of CAE has been realised, and, more importantly, what more there is to be achieved.
This two-day conference focused on existing best practices as well as state-of-the-art in FEA, CFD and associated technologies –ensuring delegates received a fully comprehensive overview of the technology available to them.
The conference increased awareness and provided a discussion forum for topics that are vital to engineering industrialists and academics, offering attendees an unrivalled combination of industrial knowledge, expertise and forward-thinking to aid their deployment of CAE over the next few years.
As part of the conference, the NAFEMS HPC Working Group organised a session focused on promoting the industrial usage of UK HPC Infrastructure. This track gave the National Centres, Regional Centres and other public/private providers a unique and important opportunity to engage directly with UK engineering firms, large and small, who might use their services.
The conference also included a workshop on Optimisation, as well as free short courses throughout the two-day event.
