In mid-June 2017, around 630 individuals from around the world gathered in Stockholm for the 2017 NAFEMS World Congress (NWC17).
In what became NAFEMS' largest ever event to date, 34 different countries were represented, with the largest number of delegates (limited to top 5) coming from: Germany, United States, Sweden, United Kingdom, and France.
It is also exciting to report that nearly 400 different organizations were represented at NWC17. In addition to the 340 presentations delivered, attendees had access to over 30 different training courses and special sessions, opportunities to meet with 36 of the leading vendors in our industry, as well as a dining experience seated next to the Vasa, a Swedish warship built around 1626, which was resurrected from the bottom of Stockholm harbour after only sailing about 1,300m on its maiden voyage in 1628.
We will be publishing a comprehensive summary of the event in due course, as well as various articles and news items based around the activities at the Congress, but in the meantime, we would like to thank every sponsor, exhibitor, presenter, and attendee who contributed to making NWC17 such a success.
