Because Simulation is more than Software

Almost 1000 participants met in Nuremberg for the 34th CADFEM ANSYS Simulation Conference.

From October 5th to 7th the CAE and ANSYS community came together to get to know the latest trends in simulation technology, no matter if it is in the field of science, development or design.

Keynote speakers from Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen, the Universität der Bundeswehr or Qualcomm but also users from different industries were part of the conference program. At all times CAE experts from CADFEM and ANSYS were available for discussions, consultation or knowledge transfer.

Forum discussions, exhibition, sponsors

Part of the CADFEM ANSYS Simulation Conference are the Conference on Digital cities, the caMe Conference (biomechanics), the DEM forum (particle simulatin) and the annually CADFEM forum.

During the breaks particiapants could inform themselves in the integrated exhibition about simulation products, services or trainings. Furthermore could our guests find exponent , e.g. motorbikes from KTM Technologies. Hereby we would like to thank our 40 exhibitors and our premium sponsors Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Intel.
