Over 75 speakers will be presenting at this year's March event, filling over 15 unique industrial sessions. The presenters come from leading companies all over the world, and include but are not limited to the following: NASA Kennedy Space Center, Sikorsky Aircraft, TLG Aerospace, Rowan Williams Davies & Irwin Inc. (RWDI), Dupont Teijin Films U.K. Limited, Siemens Energy Inc., Behr, Argonne National Laboratory, Chrysler, Daimler, Hyundai, Valeo, Volvo, Technip, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Westinghouse Electric Company, Shell International Exploration and Production Inc., Trek, and Vroomen White Design. The full agenda can be viewed on the conference website:

In addition to the conference, participants can design their own Best Practices Training day choosing from 15 available classes like, Aero-thermal Simulation of Vehicles, Turbulence Modeling, Design Optimization, and Optimum Mesh Design.

Attendees will learn the secret of how to use CAE more effectively in their organization, perform more simulations for less effort, and begin exploring the whole design space rather than a few points. They will leave the event with a complete understanding of the business benefits of simulation and realistic implementation strategies for their organization.
