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 13th-14th May 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 Bamberg, 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.
