Special Focus Sessions

The NAFEMS 2010 Virtual Conference, organized and hosted by NAFEMS North America, but accessible globally on the Internet, is an experiment by NAFEMS in delivering highly valuable simulation-relevant information via a more accessible vehicle at a fraction of the cost of attending a traditional "real" conference/tradeshow at a physical venue (no travel and accommodation costs).

A major highlight of the Virtual Conference is the clustering of many of the presentations into Focus Sessions. If you only wish to attend one of these focus sessions, as opposed to having access to the entire conference during and after the event, you can register for these sessions individually.

NAFEMS Members can attend the entire conference, including the focus sessions, for free. Simply follow the instructions at the Conference homepage.
