NAFEMS Nordic Conference 2018

NAFEMS NORDIC Conference 2018

Engineering Simulation: Best Practices, New Developments, Future Trends
24 - 25 April 2018, Göteborg, Sweden

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

Conference Overview

  • Plenary presentations by Volvo Cars and NIO
  • 42 Technical presentations in 15 sessions
  • Special sessions on dynamics
  • VMAP and PSE workshop sessions
  • Hardware and software exhibition
  • Networking, experience and information exchange
  • For non-members and members (free toward 4 seminar credits*)

The NAFEMS Nordic Regional Conference 2018 was held once again at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel in Göteborg on 24 - 25 April 2018.

Entitled “Engineering Simulation: Best Practices, New Developments, Future Trends”, the conference gave 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 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.

The conference was 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.
