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.
