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".
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.
