The preliminary conference agenda is now available!

NAFEMS, the independent international association for the engineering modelling, analysis and simulation community, is holding its Nordic conference from 16 - 17 November in Göteborg, Sweden.

This two-day conference will focus on existing best practices as well as state-of-the-art in FEA, CFD and associated technologies – ensuring delegates receive a fully comprehensive overview of the technology available to them. The conference will increase awareness and provide a discussion forum for topics that are vital to engineering industrialists and academics, offering attendees an unrivalled combination of industrial knowledge, expertise and forward-thinking to aid their deployment of CAE over the next few years.

The conference welcomes participation from every type of organisation – large and small, across all industry sectors. It is open to both, members and non-members of NAFEMS, with members able to attend the event for free towards using four seminar credits, as part of their membership benefits package.
