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. Further information and registration here Keynote Addresses Professor J. Tinsley Oden Associate Vice President for Research, University of Texas at Austin, Founder and Director, Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES) SIMULATION-BASED ENGINEERING: Where Do We Go From Here? David W. Trop 787 Deputy Chief of Structures Engineering, The Boeing Company STRUCTURAL OPTIMIZATION: Trends and Opportunities Dr. Jim Wood Senior Lecturer, University of Strathclyde Simulation Training and Education Related to the Basic Engineering Curricula 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.
