2020 Nordic Regional Conference



The conference will provide a unique, independent, neutral, and comprehensive
overview of the current state of art in the engineering simulation analysis.

Please submit abstracts latest 7 February 2020 to roger.oswald@nafems.org.


Call for Papers
NAFEMS, the independent international association for the engineering modelling, analysis and simulation community, is holding its Nordic conference from 26 - 27 May 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.

Get Involved! – Submit your abstract
You are invited to participate by telling the engineering analysis community how simulation is being used in your organisation and where you believe CAE is heading. The conference welcomes participation from every type of organisation – large and small, across all industry sectors.

The event 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.

We look forward to your abstract submission by 7 February 2020 to roger.oswald@nafems.org.
