The 2012 SIMULIA Community Conference (SCC) will be held in Providence, RI. A city filled with world-famous museums, historical sites, shopping, entertainment and culinary delights.
The continuing 26-year tradition of providing high-quality content and valuable exchange of industry knowledge is made possible by the dedication of our customer community. The 2012 SCC is no exception. The Conference is being organized to provide equally interesting and pertinent topics encompassing the use of Abaqus, Isight and Simulation Lifecycle Management across a wide range of industries.
We are pleased to announce the keynote presenters for the 2012 SIMULIA Community Conference! Hear firsthand how 3M Engineering Analysis and Technip use SIMULIA solutions to stay ahead of the competition–keynote presentations by:
Anthony B. Ferguson, P.E. Lead Engineering Specialist 3M Engineering Analysis

"The Role of Realistic Simulation in 3M Innovation"
3M captures the spark of new ideas and transforms them into thousands of ingenious products. As a diverse, multinational corporation, 3M never stops inventing through its global R&D, engineering and manufacturing centers. The six core business groups combined with a broad technology platform makes 3M an exciting yet difficult company to characterize. This presentation will sketch the structure, the company and the technologies that 3M innovation is built upon. Our diverse and challenging modeling and simulation landscape is highlighted along with several examples of the application of 3DS SIMULIA products.
"Advanced Engineering Simulation: Allowing Technip to Take it Further"
Energy, along with food and shelter, is an essential need of each of us. Strong growth of the global economy is fundamentally tied to the availability of accessibly and reliable sources of energy in all forms: hydrocarbon based, renewable, and nuclear. For over 50 years, Technip and its subsidiaries have provided innovative products and engineering solutions to meet the needs of the Energy industry. Technip is active from the most challenging offshore, deepwater hydrocarbon plays, where the billions of dollars of infrastructure are required for safe and reliable operations, to the massive, and equally capital intensive, refineries and LNG plants that needed to convert those hydrocarbons into useful products to fuel our global economy. As the technical challenges facing the Energy industry have grown over the years, advanced engineering simulations have allowed Technip to overcome these challenges by taking its products and designs further.
