Due to the Corona pandemic we need to postpone the 1st Int. Conference on CAE Interoperability 2020
to 15 - 16 October 2020, Munich (IABG in Taufkirchen), Germany.

Besides the change of date everything will be as planned and all
participant bookings and presenters keep their validity.

We are now also able to offer exhibition space. If you are interested in, please contact roger.oswald@nafems.org.

Interoperability is a significant topic for much of the Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) simulation and analysis sector.  Improving accuracy and speed in both product and process design is a constant requirement. A critical factor in this is enabling seamless collaboration between teams, often in different organisations, addressing different simulations and physics. This, however, presents a significant barrier.

The 1st International Conference on Interoperability, organised by the VMAP project, will discuss these issues and more. The conference will take place in Bamberg, Germany, from 15th-16th October 2020, following directly on from the NAFEMS DACH Regional Conference at the same venue.

Focusing on the many aspects, problems and possible solutions in interoperability including software implementation, simulation process integration, data transfer, standards, ontologies, and collaboration, this will be the first independent, international gathering focussing solely on interoperability.

We look forward to welcome you in Munich, Germany

VMAP is a vendor-neutral standard for CAE data storage to enhance interoperability in virtual engineering workflows. The project is funded by national research agencies from Austria, Netherlands, Germany and Canada.

Conference language

Delegate Fee
The VMAP project subsidised a number of participants (experts, engineers, developers and practitioners in the field) and this has now been exceeded. Additional registrations are still welcome but these do not benefit from VMAP subsidy and are thus requested to pay a small participation fee of 250 Euro + VAT. This includes entrance, coffee breaks and lunch, but does not included hotel accommodation.
