The second edition of the CADFEM Ansys Simulation Conference (ex Forum) will be held on June 8, 2023 at the Veolia campus in Jonage (69). We look forward to seeing you there with the same enthusiasm as the previous edition. Attending the event means joining the first community of digital simulation fans in France.

CADFEM gives an appointment to their Ansys's users at the Simulation Conference

During this day, various technical presentations will be given by engineers from the industrial world. Like you, the presenters are working on Ansys to develop new products. What were the challenges at the beginning of the project, what was the method used to solve the problems, what key steps in the development were taken to meet goals ? 

Whether in structural dynamics, fluid dynamics, particle dynamics... every day, products are improved thanks to numerical simulation. From mobility to energy, agriculture or process engineering... various activities will testify about their innovative work and will try to win the CADFEM trophy.

This day promises you beautiful discoveries which will cultivate your curiosity. CADFEM engineers from each physics division will also be present to show you the possibilities of Ansys software. This is an opportunity to discuss your challenges and issues in a friendly, human-sized environment.

The CADFEM Simulation Conference on Ansys software will be held on June 8, 2023 near Lyon at Campus Veolia in Jonage.

30 minutes from the city center / SNCF train station of Lyon by public transport and on the outskirts of the city for those who prefer to come by car, all roads lead to the Simulation Conference!
