Call for Papers

Be part of it | Share your experiences | Promote your organization's activities

The Congress will offer a packed program, covering every aspect of engineering analysis. We welcome papers from every area of simulation including, but not limited to, the areas listed opposite.

In the first instance, abstracts of 300-600 words should be submitted for consideration by November 21st 2018, using our online submission form below.

Make sure you are a part of this unique event.

The NAFEMS World Congress is an extraordinary biennial gathering of industry professionals, academics, researchers and software vendors. From designers to engineers to their managers and executive teams, participants represent every aspect of the manufacturing process. 

This is a global event that will welcome attendees from every industry involved in engineering simulation, analysis, and systems engineering. What better stage on which to showcase your organisation’s use of simulation to a global audience? NAFEMS extends an invitation to you and your company to get involved in the World Congress by submitting a paper for presentation in Quebec City.

 This year, we will be holding several specific symposia, focussing on themes of particular current interest, as well as hosting the 4th International SPDM conference. Presenters and attendees will have access to all parts of the event under one registration.
