Altair has announced the initial keynote presentations and overall agenda for its 2018 Global Altair Technology Conference, taking place at the Palais des Congrès d’Issy in Paris, France, on 16-18 October.
This year's conference on simulation-driven innovation will include keynotes and presentations from Airbus, Ferrari, Alstom, Renault, Harvard Business School, Columbia University, Zaha Hadid, BMW, and Schneider Electric. The event features workshops, technical sessions and industry presentations on the latest technology trends such as IoT and the digital twin, e-mobility and electric vehicle design, and the impact of AI and machine learning on the future of design.
The conference will begin on 16 October with eight workshops offering learning forums for emerging trends and the latest technology in product development. 17 October will offer keynotes from Altair executives and a line-up of speakers including Stephan Thomke from Harvard Business School and Andrea Merulla from Ferrari. Dozens of industry presentations follow on 18 October, with technical sessions on over ten simulation topics including electromagnetics, crash and safety, fluid dynamics and model-based development.
Demonstrating effective leverage of simulation, optimisation and HPC to deliver outstanding products and experiences, the conference is designed for industry leaders, product designers, technologists and engineers.
“Curiosity stimulates creativity,” says Antonio Di Carlo at Ruag Space. “The conference is always interesting, because you get a chance to see what is coming up in months and years to come for ideas on how we can improve our processes, speed up our daily work or simply get an idea for your next work coming from an environment which you did not think about.”
“Altair’s thought leadership around simulation-driven innovation and our strong commitment to pursue and experiment with emerging technologies has separated Altair as a leader in the product design world,” notes James Scapa, Altair’s Founder, Chairman, and CEO. “As a result, the ATC conferences naturally foster an exchange of ideas around innovation and provide a fresh perspective to our attendees who find them unique and extremely useful. This year’s Global ATC in Paris is shaping up to be excellent, with world-class speakers and amazing content spanning technologies from advanced simulation and optimisation to digital twin and machine learning.”
