Call: NAFEMS UK Conference 2012 – Engineering Simulation: Realising the Potential

NAFEMS UK Conference 2012
Engineering Simulation: Realising the Potential

Simulation has the potential to transform a company’s engineering processes – providing unprecedented insight into product performance and inspiring innovation by allowing novel concepts to be explored and evaluated.

NAFEMS, the independent association for the engineering analysis community, is holding its UK conference during 30-31 May 2012 with the primary aim of helping attendees realise the full potential of their engineering simulation and analysis. The 2012 NAFEMS UK Conference will explore the extent to which this potential has now been realised, and what more can be achieved.

The two day conference will focus on existing best practices as well as state-of-the-art FEA, CFD and associated technologies – ensuring delegates receive a fully comprehensive overview of the technology available to them. The conference intends to increase awareness and provide a discussion forum for topics that are important and relevant to engineering industrialists and academics, with an educational theme throughout.

This is the fourth NAFEMS UK conference to date, with each being undeniably bigger and better than its predecessor. Following on from the extremely successful 2010 conference, the 2012 event will certainly be the UK’s leading event on simulation technology aimed at the engineering analysis community – bringing together leading industrial practitioners, consultancies, academic researchers and software developers in a neutral forum.

Call for Presentations

NAFEMS openly requests presentations which provide case studies on the effective use of simulation for a particular application. Presentations from all areas of simulation can be submitted and will be considered for acceptance, however, contributions which highlight one or more of the themes below are particularly welcomed:

  • Design Driven by Simulation
  • Pioneering Simulation Technology and Application
  • Engineering Analysis, Verification and Validation
  • Simulation making a difference, adding value to business

You are invited to participate to tell the engineering analysis community how simulation is being used in your organisation. The impact of simulation, and the extent to which it is deployed, can vary considerably depending on company size, and the industry sector in which you operate. The conference committee is keen to encourage input and participation from a wide range of organisations – large and small, across all sectors.

Please note, NAFEMS prides itself on its independence and neutrality so we kindly request that submissions avoid any overt commercialism.

In the first instance, abstracts of 300-600 words should be submitted for consideration by 16th December 2011. Abstracts must be clearly marked with presentation title, author’s name, organisation, address, phone numbers and email address.

E-mail your abstract to

Authors whose abstracts are accepted will be asked to prepare an extended abstract (typically 2-4 pages) and a PowerPoint presentation – full written papers will not be required.
