Conference Agenda

The 2011 EnginSoft Conference lasts two days and is organized as follows:

  • The plenary session is being held on the first day in the morning: here, scientific topics, which are relevant also at global level, are being discussed.
  • On the first day in the afternoon and on the second day in the morning parallel technical sessions are taking place, where representatives of the Italian and global industry are presenting¬† their CAE applications .
  • On the second day in the afternoon the software updates in the Mechanical, CFD (computational fluid-dynamics) and Optimization disciplines are being presented.

The Conference is also including an exhibition area with representatives of software, hardware and complementary technology providers and a showroom where CAE application posters are being displayed.
