NAFEMS UK CONFERENCE 2018
Taking Engineering Analysis and Simulation to the Next Level
Presentations available to attendees here.
We looked at how we, as a community, take engineering analysis & simulation to the next level.
When does ‘the future’ become ‘the norm’?
As the international association dedicated to engineering analysis and simulation, NAFEMS is the independent voice of the CAE community, representing over 1300 member organisations worldwide, including all the major software vendors, global manufacturing industry, and leading academic institutions.
The NAFEMS UK Conference 2018 brought together those involved in analysis and simulation from every corner of industry and academia, giving an opportunity to advance delegates knowledge, and giving organisations a competitive advantage, being part of improving the technology itself.
The 1st NAFEMS Academic Symposium
For the first time, the UK Conference 2018 incorporated the NAFEMS Academic Symposium – “Big Education – Big Simulation Issues”. Education is at the heart of NAFEMS and the symposium addressed the issues facing individuals and organisations engaged in education and training, in support of the effective use of analysis and simulation technologies.
This interactive event was hosted by engineers who have been involved in Education and Training throughout their careers and have extensive experience of both traditional and CAD-embedded systems.
Breakout discussion sessions were held which explored some of the key issues involved in education and training and how NAFEMS can improve its engagement with University academic staff and students.
