Altair, Troy, Michigan, USA, has revealed the keynote presentations and overall agenda for its 2018 Global Altair Technology Conference, set to take place at the Palais des Congrès d’Issy in Paris, France, October 16–18, 2018. Keynotes and industry presentations will be made during the event by speakers from Airbus, Ferrari, Alstom, Renault, Harvard Business School, Columbia University, Zaha Hadid Architects, BMW, Schneider Electric and more.

The Altair Technology Conference is focused on simulation-driven innovation, and includes in-depth workshops, technical sessions and industry presentations on the latest technology trends such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and digital twins, e mobility and electric vehicle design, and the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning on the future of design. It will launch on October 16 with eight workshops on emerging trends and the latest technology in product development.

On October 17, keynote presentations will be given by Altair Executives and other speakers including Stephan Thomke, Harvard Business School and Andrea Merulla, Ferrari. Further presentations will follow on October 18, with technical sessions covering more than ten simulation topics including electromagnetics, crash and safety, fluid dynamics and model-based development.

“Altair’s thought leadership around simulation-driven innovation and our strong commitment to pursue and experiment with emerging technologies has separated Altair as a leader in the product design world,” stated James Scapa, Altair’s Founder, Chairman, and CEO. “As a result, the ATC conferences naturally foster an exchange of ideas around innovation and provide a fresh perspective to our attendees who find them unique and extremely useful. This year’s Global ATC in Paris is shaping up to be excellent, with world-class speakers and amazing content spanning technologies from advanced simulation and optimisation to digital twin and machine learning.”

Registration is currently available at early-bird discounted rates, and is available alongside more detailed information via the conference website.
