What do Tesla Motors, BMW, Honda, Toyota, Ferrari, Denso, Panasonic, SL Corporation, Cummins, Tenneco, and Honeywell, have in common? Well, not only are they leaders in the automotive renaissance, but they all delivered presentations on leading-edge simulation at the 2014 Automotive Simulation World Congress.
At that two-day conference, the premiere global meeting on engineering simulation in ground transportation, 55 groups presented on methodological advances, application highlights, and best practices in automotive simulation. They joined the ranks of a wide spectrum of car and truck OEMs, suppliers and motorsports organizations from around the world such as Infiniti RedBull Racing, Dallara Engineering, Renault, Volkswagen, Adam Opel, Isuzu, Man+Hummel, John Deere, Continental, Magneti Marelli — and others that were among 85 presenters at the 2013 ASWC in Frankfurt.
The Automotive Simulation World Congress is an engaging platform for you to share your technology achievements and showcase your company’s strengths to colleagues around the world. I encourage you to present your work and share your stories with your peers!
Presentations are solicited on all aspects of simulation, including structural (FEA), fluids (CFD), thermal, electromagnetics, circuit simulation and embedded software simulation, pertaining to various vehicle systems, such as:
• IC engine combustion, cooling and structural simulation, fluid-structure interaction, turbochargers, air-fuel systems, engine ancillaries
• Powertrain systems, pumps, transmission, clutches, gear drives, differentials
• Aerodynamics, underhood thermal management, climate control
• Chassis, brakes, suspension, steering, wheels, tires
• Vehicle electrification, electric powertrain, advanced batteries, e-motors, power electronics, fuel cells, autonomous vehicles
• Low- and high-frequency electronics, sensors, actuators, antenna design, wireless connectivity
• Acoustics, NVH
• Model-based systems engineering
• Embedded and controls software modeling, verification and certified code generation, ISO26262 and Autosar
A title and a two-paragraph abstract is due by February 15, 2015. A committee will review all submissions and communicate acceptance to authors by February 28. Then, author bio and photograph are due by March 15. The final presentation files are due April 30.
In the meantime, if you have any questions, suggestions, or comments, I would love to hear them.
