NAFEMS 2010 Virtual Conference
hosted by NAFEMS North America
15-16 November 2010

attendance is free for any employee of a NAFEMS member company

Virtual Conference? What is it?

The NAFEMS 2010 Virtual Conference, organized and hosted by NAFEMS North America, but accessible globally on the Internet, is an experiment by NAFEMS in delivering highly valuable simulation-relevant information via a more accessible vehicle at a fraction of the cost of attending a traditional 'real' conference/tradeshow at a physical venue (no travel and accommodation costs).

In addition, if you miss any of the live presentations during the two-day event, you can access the full (audio + slides) recordings of all of them for up to one month after the event (included in the event registration).

This pioneering event, containing most of the elements of a traditional conference, but without the costs of travel and accommodations for the attendees, will feature over 20 high-quality live presentations in the Auditorium and numerous major simulation technology vendors in the Exhibition Hall.

Special Focus Sessions

A major highlight of the Virtual Conference is the clustering of many of the presentations into Focus Sessions. If you only wish to attend one of these focus sessions, as opposed to having access to the entire conference during and after the event, you can register for these sessions individually at the conference website. Registration for the full conference includes access to all of these sessions. Click on each session for further information.
