GLASGOW, UK, NOVEMBER 12TH 2012 – NAFEMS, the international association for the engineering analysis community, will host its 13th World Congress in Salzburg, Austria during 9-12 June to bring together the international community together in a neutral forum, unlike any other.

“We are proud to be announcing our 13th World Congress following on from the hugely successful 2011 Congress in Boston and our largest series of regional conferences last year.” commented Tim Morris, NAFEMS CEO. “2013 promises to be an exciting year for NAFEMS as the organisation celebrates its 30th year. We look forward to welcoming the international community next year in Salzburg to explore the most cutting edge uses of simulation as we celebrate our landmark anniversary.”  

In today’s ever-changing climate, companies from a wide range of industries are increasing their focus in new solutions, technologies and process with the aim of reducing costs whilst producing innovative and efficient products. The Congress will showcase the most innovative and ground-breaking simulation in a truly impartial forum.

The NAFEMS World Congress 2013 is the only independent, global conference that focuses entirely on simulation and its impact on industry. As the international association dedicated to engineering analysis and simulation, NAFEMS has gained respect as being the independent voice of the CAE community, representing over 1000 member organisations worldwide including prominent software vendors, global manufacturing industry and leading academic institutions.

Bringing the simulation community together to share their interests and experience, the Congress provides a neutral platform like no other. During the event, attendees will have the opportunity to share and learn from the experiences of like-minded individuals who are utilising simulation technologies across a wide range of industries.

As the only event that truly showcases the most innovative use of simulation, the NAFEMS World Congress 2013 is not to be missed. Open to everyone, the Congress offers an unparalleled opportunity for attendees to ensure they are making best use of simulation technologies.


The 1st International SPDM Conference

Over the past three years, NAFEMS has held a series of dedicated conferences on the topic of simulation data and process management in both Europe and North America. The popularity of these has been such that the 1st International SPDM Conference has been launched, and will run alongside the NAFEMS World Congress in 2013. Bringing together industrial users, technology experts, academics and software vendors alike, this ground-breaking event will allow all those with an interest to take part in the first truly independent, international forum dedicated to SPDM, as well as having access to the full Congress program.
