The NAFEMS Nordic Regional Summit 2008 will be held at the Hotel 11 in Gothenburg on 17th & 18th November 2008. Entitled Best Practises and Trends in Engineering Simulation and Analysis, the Conference will give delegates an unrivalled independent insight into the current best practices and state-of-the-art in FEA, CFD, MBS, SDM and associated technologies, providing the most comprehensive overview and trends of the technology available.

The two-day conference aims to increase awareness and provide a discussion forum for topics that are important and relevant to engineering industrialists and academics.

If you are an analyst, engineer, team leader or manager that has a responsibility for ensuring that a fit-for-purpose engineering solution is obtained from the use of modern simulation software, then you should attend.

The event is open to both members and non-members of NAFEMS, with members able to attend the event for free , as part of their membership benefits package.
