NAFEMS Announces MSC Software as Principal Sponsor of 2016 UK Conference
GLASGOW, UK, FEBRUARY 22ND 2016 – NAFEMS, the International Association for the Engineering Analysis, Modelling and Simulation Community, has announced that MSC Software, who develop simulation software technology that enables engineers to validate and optimize their designs using virtual prototypes, will be the principal sponsor of the 2016 NAFEMS UK Conference.
The 2016 UK Conference, being held in Telford between June 15th and 16th, will include over 80 presentations in several parallel sessions, representing the most comprehensive and wide-ranging overview of the analysis and simulation industry in the UK.
“MSC Software have been a strong supporter of NAFEMS for many years” commented David Quinn, Chief Marketing Officer at NAFEMS. “Their involvement in this year’s UK conference shows the high regard in which NAFEMS events are held across industry. As we take the 2016 conference back to the home of the industrial revolution, we are delighted to have MSC’s backing for what is shaping up to be an unmissable event.”
The very essence of NAFEMS is the open-forum it provides to every end-user, every academic, and every software vendor. The 2016 UK conference will build on previous events, giving attendees a vital insight into industry trends, common issues, and best-practice.
“MSC Software is proud to be the principal sponsor of the 2016 NAFEMS UK conference, and underlines our commitment to advancing the state of the art in simulation.” said Richard White, Technical Manager at MSC. “MSC pioneered many of the CAE technologies that are now relied upon by industry, and continues to expand the horizons of what is possible in the simulation of materials, parts, and systems. Indeed, we are transforming the way engineers approach their tasks with our next generation MSC Apex platform.”
The two-day conference, being held at the birth-place of the industrial revolution, has the potential to revolutionise the way attendees work with simulation, the way they view their day to day challenges, and the place that simulation has in their organisations. There is simply no other event which provides this independent vision at a local level, backed-up by the strength that an international organisation spanning almost every country in the world affords.
As well as the main conference tracks and comprehensive exhibition are featuring the top hardware, software and consultancy providers, several workshops, short courses and discussion sessions will be held, giving all those who attend an excellent opportunity to stay at the forefront of the technology.
