We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for contributing to the NAFEMS Americas Conference on "Simulation in the Automotive Industry: Creating the Next Generation Vehicle."



We will require a copy of your presentation by Wednesday, October 30, 2019. We would like your presentation to last for no more than 20 minutes. We will add five-minutes for questions, discussion, and transition following each presentation. Please find below a presentation template to assist you when creating your presentation.

NAFEMS will be combining all presentations in advance of the conference and loading your final presentation onto a laptop computer at the venue. You will have the opportunity to view your presentation in the break before your session. 

In addition, a copy of your presentation slides (as a .pdf, modified as necessary) will be available post-event, on the NAFEMS website (subject to your approval).




Finally, below is a speaker biography form. This brief form is designed to assist the session chair when introducing you. Please return the completed form to NAFEMS (, along with your presentation, by Wednesday, October 30, 2019.
