4th CADFEM ANSYS Simulation Conference – Ireland & UK

4th CADFEM ANSYS Simulation Conference – Ireland & UK

Date:    12th & 13th October 2017
Venue: Engineers Ireland, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4


“We really enjoyed the Conference and the content of all the presentations was very informative as always.”

 Dr John Mc Namara, Timoney Technology. Nov. 2016



We are delighted to announce the first speakers of the 4th CADFEM ANSYS Simulation Conference – Ireland & UK which we will host once again at Engineers Ireland in Dublin.

The conference provides a forum for you to network with simulation experts from CADFEM, ANSYS UK, DYNARDO, Motor Design UK and of course other ANSYS users. It is a perfect opportunity to have first sight of emerging technologies and directions in simulation, meet the larger ANSYS community, share experiences and best practices.

The Conference will run over two days, with a Networking Dinner on Day 1, and will include core presentations by ANSYS users and simulation experts. 

We are very pleased to announce ANSYS as the Sponsor of our Networking Dinner on 12th October which we will host again at a fine restaurant in Monkstown, Dublin.

CADFEM and ANSYS want to provide a wealth of knowledge to you on how to achieve accurate and meaningful simulations. 

Attendance is free but places are limited – Please register now!

If you are interested in presenting,  the extended submission deadline is: 24th August 2017.  Please scroll down for further information.
