NAFEMS European Conference on Multiphysics Simulation 2018

NAFEMS European Conference on Multiphysics Simulation 2018:

Accurate Modelling for Tomorrow's Technologies

11th & 12th October 2018
Budapest, Hungary

Technology is changing faster than ever. Global megatrends – such as
digitalization, resource scarcity, and the need for renewable energy –
drive the demand for innovation and efficient product development. In
today’s world of almost limitless computing power, numerical simulations
need to be both accessible and accurate in order to enable innovation.


T​he extended abstracts provided by presenters, can be found on the NAFEMS Resource Centre - here.
A​vailable to NAFEMS members only, please log into the website.
