Dassault Systèmes Announced as Platinum Sponsor of the 2017 NAFEMS World Congress

The International Association for the Engineering Analysis, Modelling & Simulation Community Partners with Dassault Systèmes through their SIMULIA brand for Major International Conference


NAFEMS, the International Association for the Engineering Analysis, Modelling and Simulation Community, has announced that Dassault Systèmes, which delivers a scalable portfolio of Realistic Simulation, Optimization, and Simulation Process Management solutions under the SIMULIA brand, will be the platinum sponsor of the 2017 NAFEMS World Congress (NWC17).

The 2017 World Congress, being held in Stockholm, Sweden, between June 11th and 14th, has already seen a record level of interest, with over 480 abstracts being reviewed at the call for papers stage. The Congress represents the most comprehensive and wide-ranging collection of analysis and simulation specific papers available from one independent, international event. The event will also be held in conjunction with the 3rd International SPDM (Simulation Process & Data Management) Conference, providing attendees with the opportunity to access both events with a single registration. For the first time, the Congress will also host a dedicated symposium on Manufacturing Process Simulation & Additive Manufacturing, covering all virtual manufacturing tools within the product design and manufacturing cycle.

“As a global member of NAFEMS and Platinum Sponsor of the 2017 NAFEMS World Congress, Dassault Systèmes is committed to empowering the global simulation community to enhance their engineering, business and innovation leadership through the use of proven simulation technologies,” said Sumanth Kumar, Vice President, SIMULIA Growth, Dassault Systèmes. “We are also committed to enhancing and expanding our simulation portfolio to address a full range of engineering challenges from multiphysics to multiscale to managing and securing simulation IP.”

Tim Morris, NAFEMS’ CEO, added, “For the past five world congresses, we have received a great deal of support from Dassault Systèmes through their SIMULIA brand. We appreciate the trust that they place in us through their continued engagement with the community, and we look forward to having them on board for the event in Stockholm”.

With a world-class program of keynote speakers, technical sessions, workshops, round-tables and free training courses, the World Congress is one of the most important events on the calendar for the simulation and analysis community. “The NAFEMS World Congress is a global event, in the true sense of the word”, Morris continued. “With delegates and presenters travelling from all over the world to attend, the event gives a comprehensive overview of current best practice and important issues in the simulation, modelling and analysis community. The calibre of papers and presentations, combined with the training courses and workshops included in the delegate fee, gives attendees an unrivalled insight into the use of simulation across every industry, from every part of the world. We truly believe that this is the key event of 2017 for anyone involved in analysis and simulation at any level”.

As many as six parallel tracks will run over the four days of the Congress, covering topics including;

  • Structural Analysis; 
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics; 
  • Dynamics & Testing; 
  • Multi-body Simulation; 
  • Analysis Management;
