ASSESS 2018 CONGRESS

New domains of usage for Engineering Simulation are evolving and exploding including: Biomedical Design & Certification, Generative Design, Digital Twins, “Smart Manufacturing”, “Smart Testing”, and more.  Meanwhile, the demand within the existing domains of Engineering Simulation is exploding to support increased competitiveness and to deal with the rapidly growing complexity of products, processes, and systems. 

The actual growth in usage and benefit of Engineering Simulation is directly related to the available expertise to effectively use the software tools. This has resulted in a need for a Simulation Revolution to meet the rapidly growing demand for significantly more “appropriately” realistic Engineering Simulations. The Simulation Revolution is about making Engineering Simulation widely available & appropriate to support improved decision making throughout the entire life-cycle of engineered.

The ASSESS 2018 Congress is being organized by the ASSESS Initiative to help launch the required “Simulation Revolution”. 

The ASSESS 2018 Congress will be held October 28-30, 2018 at the  Chateau Elan Winery & Resort in Braselton, GA. Registration for the ASSESS 2018 Congress is by invitation only and is limited to 115 attendees. Registration for the ASSESS 2018 Congress will close either when all available seats are taken but no later than October 24, 2018.   Registrations will not be accepted after October 24, 2018.
