Take a look

Over 500 papers have been accepted for this year's event, making it the largest ever!
We will cover every aspect of engineering modelling, analysis and simulation. That includes core topics like FEA, CFD, and MBD, as well as examining the next steps for our community and the technology. We will also be hosting the 5th International SPDM conference, as well as our Multiphysics Simulation Conference and Automotive Symposium as part of the event.
We're pushing forward our Analysis Agenda, engaging with everyone involved in the technology, and looking at where we’re going and how to get there.
We're asking questions, and looking for answers on your behalf.
