International CAE Conference 2015

19, 20 October 2015
Pacengo del Garda, Verona - Italy

  • Innovative perspectives along with avant-garde science and technologies are once again protagonists at the International CAE Conference, the most significant European event dedicated to computer simulation and its countless application possibilities continues to progress the unstoppable steps towards the future.

    More than 800 delegates participated at this year’s event, with 150 speakers alternating between the two plenary sessions and 10 industrial focused sessions, where over 35 companies sponsors were also present. There was no lack of attendance from Universities, Faculties and Polytechnic Institutes; represented by professors, researchers and students, which in the development of the numerical simulation epitomising the best collective minds, Europeans and overseas, but also Italians. It can’t be forgotten, indeed, that the Country plays a crucial role of excellence in the industry and can advocate a leading role in the landscape of technological innovations. The prestigious setting was complete with the high calibre of guests, who shared their progress and future advances from pioneering projects demonstrated in their own fields. As highlighted by the founder and President of the Scientific Committee of the International CAE Conference, Stefano Odorizzi, "The International CAE Conference is a rich environment to discover current developments and new technological breakthroughs, network, explore new business opportunities and share experiences".

International CAE Conference 2014

27, 28 October 2014
Pacengo del Garda, Verona - Italy

  • The 2014's edition has been the occasion to celebrate the 30th Anniversary and as usual it has accomplished with its task to disseminate the knowledge and the state of the art of computational technologies, supporting research and technological innovation (for industry, aerospace, Oil&Gas, medical sciences), allowing experts, researchers, technicians engaged in product and process innovation to meet again.

    Also this year the International CAE Conference has been characterized by eminent guests. Confindustria President, Giorgio Squinzi, has declared: "New computer-aided technologies have been acknowledged as essential for the creation of new processes and products and for this reason the European Commission is strongly focused on companies development. In such a scenario, companies have to play the fundamental role of key partners in research activities, thus stimulating innovation development and achieving Europe targets. Innovation is also an Italian priority and Confindustria is requesting the central government to foster the creation of favorable and suitable conditions for innovation and competitiveness".
    Stefano Odorizzi – CEO, Scientific Committee President of the International CAE Conference – has underlined the importance of Computer Aided Engineering simulation and innovation as a strategic tool for competitiveness for any company in any sector.

International CAE Conference 2013

21, 22 October 2013
Pacengo del Garda, Verona - Italy

  • This renowned engineering event in the heart of Europe brought together scientists, researchers and managers from various sectors to show how "engineering simulation" can improve our tomorrow. They shared their progress in medicine, engineering, environmental-friendly and renewable energy, safety, aerospace exploration and the management of natural phenomena; together exploring how we may improve our future, our world and our lives.
    The Conference attracted a global audience from various backgrounds and disciplines with a common understanding that no product, process or service innovation can disregard engineering simulation. The 2013 year (the 29th) extended an incredible record: a 25% increase in participants (in comparison to 2012), with thirty seminars and workshops divided into different sectors (energy, civil engineering, transportation and biomechanics, among the others), and with a strong focus on Aerospace & Defense. Fourteen projects displayed their results and prototypes in the R&D area, and 30 remarkable sponsors filled our exhibition space.

    This year we were joined by extraordinary key-note speakers Maurizio Cheli, the Italian astronaut; Alexander Simpson, Global Research leader of General Electric; Catherine Riviere, President of PRACE and GENCI general manager; Michael Gasik, from Aalto University Foundation in Finland and Bernardo Schrefler, who is involved in Padova and Houston in medical research, to predict cancer evolution with relation to medical treatments.

From 1984
Venezia - Italy

  • The International CAE Conference first edition was organized in Venice in 1984.
    The CAE community is still growing; the use of such technology is becoming increasingly popular within companies from various sectors becoming as necessary procedure to the innovation of the design process.
    In the last three editions, the International CAE Conference hosted more than 700 people each year, attending from various countries all over Europe.
    Lecturers, contributors and attendees, are coming from important industrial groups and multinationals: Avio Group, Ansaldo, Snecma, Aerspatial, Magneti Marelli, Piaggio, Ferrari, Fiat, Jaguar, Daimler, BMW, etc.
    The exhibition area holds further opportunities for individuals who wish to enhance their knowledge on CAE related solutions, hardware, software and collaterals as well as the best meeting point for exchange point of views between technical operators.
  • 2012 Pacengo del Garda (VR)
    Virtual experimentation creates employment opportunities for young people but, most importantly, it is an investment in terms of quality and cost savings for companies. Simulation affects all sectors, without exception, and it was the star of the 28th edition of the International CAE Conference.
    Special guest, during the morning section, was Professor Parviz Moin, founder and director of the Centre for Turbulence Research at Stanford University (California). The Centre was created in 1987 as a research consortium between NASA and Stanford University and is dedicated to the study of turbulent motions; it concerns many different areas of our daily lives: from aviation to wind energy, from medicine to biology. Professor Moin has pioneered the use of Large Eddy Simulation, which is a particular methodology for the simulation of turbulence and a reference point in the sector.
