2016 Automotive Simulation World Congress Returns to Europe

automotive simulation world congressEvery year, automotive industry visionaries and innovators from across the automotive industry assemble at the Automotive Simulation World Congress to share the latest advances, perspectives and best practices in the use of automotive simulation.  I am excited to note that this year, the Automotive Simulation World Congress will be held again in Europe, meeting in Munich on June 7-8, after spanning other corners of the globe in previous years.

Engineering simulation is needed now more than ever, as the race to develop advanced driver assistance systems — and eventually, autonomous vehicles —  accelerates at an exponential rate. At the same time as these futuristic designs are being explored, automotive engineers are constantly driven by competitive and regulatory pressures to improve powertrain efficiency, body and chassis systems, and passenger comfort and safety.

Keynote speakers for this event, coming from such diverse companies as Qualcomm. Brose, BMW, Amazon Web Services, ZF-TRW, Ferrari, and, of course, ANSYS, will discuss the latest trends, advances, and challenges in automotive technologies.

100+ presentations in one conference

If you’re going to this conference, prepare to be astounded by its breadth and reach. There are more than 100 presentations by speakers from: BMW, VW, Volvo Cars, Opel, PSA, Ferrari, Hyundai Motors, Bosch, Continental, Delphi, ZF, Brose, Schaeffler, Würth Electronik, Infiniti Red Bull Racing, KTM, John Deere, Deutz, Webasto, EM Motive and many more.

As an attendee, you’ll listen to industry experts talk about trends and challenges for breakthrough automotive simulations, as well as take part in dynamic sessions on vehicle body, interior, chassis, electrification and electronics. Other current topics such as aerodynamics, engine combustion, structural durability, systems engineering and embedded software will also be covered. There are so many areas of interest and sessions to attend, you will want to plan your schedule in advance. The program is online now.

Two conferences at a time

aeseSince electronics plays an increasingly important role in the automotive industry, the conference will be co-located with the ANSYS Electronics Simulation Expo, an international conference focused on improving electronic system design. As an attendee, you can attend the sessions of both conferences and learn more about simulating and designing the embedded electronics systems that are integral parts of the cars and vehicles of the future.

Don’t miss the most important event of the year

In addition to the opportunity to hear from such simulation thought leaders, the best thing that I like about the conference is getting to meet a lot of people. Networking opportunities abound as this conference is the gathering spot for the world’s best automotive simulation minds. We are expecting over 350 attendees at the upcoming conference, and I am personally looking forward to meet every one. If you haven’t registered, now is the time. I am looking forward to meeting you at ASWC 2016!
