Altair, Troy, Michigan, USA, has announced the final agenda, including additional speakers, 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. The event will offer in-depth workshops, technical sessions and keynote presentations on the latest trends in Design for Additive Manufacturing, generative design, multi-disciplinary optimisation, the internet of things (IoT) and the digital twin, e-mobility, and machine learning.
Volvo Cars, LG, ClassNK, and Team Tao are the latest additions to the list of keynote presentations, which otherwise includes Ferrari, Harvard Business School and Zaha Hadid. The 3-day event will begin with a number of in-depth academic and industry seminars on October 16, including a presentation from BMW on its award-winning i8 Roadster additively manufactured bracket.
On October 17, a full day of keynote lectures will be given by global industry leaders and technical experts. James R Scapa, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Altair, will discuss Altair’s vision for Simulation-Driven Innovation, and a number of technical executives will showcase the latest Altair technology innovations including the recently-launched Altair Inspire™ platform, the free Basic Editions of its Model-Based Development suite, and the introduction of OpenMatrix™, an open-source computational programming language.
On October 18, eight technical tracks of customer presentations will offer attendees the opportunity to learn about the latest technology applications, covering simulation topics such as electromagnetics, crash and safety, fluid dynamics, and model-based development.
“The power of simulation to drive product design continues to accelerate each year, and the annual Altair Technology Conference provides an excellent way to learn about new trends, technologies and applications to bring innovative products to market faster,” stated Jeff Brennan, Chief Marketing Officer of Altair. “This year’s conference in Paris, our 10th annual event held in Europe, is now a truly global event, and with such a rich agenda, will be a landmark event for the engineering and design community.”
To demonstrate the effective use of simulation, optimisation and HPC, the technical showcase will feature several exhibits including a self-balancing scooter, an American football helmet, an airplane door developed by Sogeclair, the Shell Eco car and more solutions from Altair’s technical ally ecosystem.
