NAFEMS World Congress 2015
NAFEMS World Congress 2015
Modeling, simulation and systems engineering is ever-evolving, and continues to inspire minds and drive innovation across all industries. The pace of change in software, hardware, techniques and best practices has been staggering in the past ten years alone, and the community continues to develop to encompass every part of the product development process.

How do we, as a community, keep up with this growth? How do we ensure that our knowledge, processes, tools and corporate culture are best placed to take advantage of the continued evolution in simulation technology?
Call for Papers
NAFEMS invites you to share your innovative applications with other leading minds in the engineering analysis and simulation community. Submit your paper today to present at the 2015 NAFEMS World Congress, which will cover a wide-range of topics that address every aspect of engineering simulation in a full 3-day program.
