Dear Academic Researchers, Professors and Students,

We are pleased to announce our annual Academic Poster Showcase will be held at Science in the Age of Experience™ Global User Conference taking place in Chicago, IL, at McCormick Place and Hyatt Regency hotel - May 15-18, 2017.

We received a record number of excellent posters this year demonstrating the use of our SIMULIA technologies (Abaqus, Isight, Tosca or fe-safe) for research and education and we are very excited to showcase them in Chicago!

Register Now for the full conference and take advantage of our academic offer which includes a 50% discount and the option to attend a Training Day Seminar or the new AM Symposium and/or Hackathon for Free. Use discount code: SAOE2017ACADEMIC.

Training Day choices include:

Technology Seminars:

  • Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Solutions inside 3DEXPERIENCE
  • Topology Optimization using Tosca for Abaqus

Application Seminars:

  • Deep Dive into Simulation on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform
  • Analyzing Drivetrains using SIMULIA Simpack Multibody Simulation

Hands-on Training Courses:

New for 2017!

We are hosting our first ever Additive Manufacturing (AM) Symposium (May 15) and Hackathon (May 15 – 17) at Science in the Age of Experience!

What is a Hackathon? 

A Hackathon is an extended team-oriented exercise in learning, creating, and doing. Teams will be given a challenge problem and work together throughout the Hackathon, guided by roaming experts on simulation and 3D printing, to produce a finished part that will be printed on-site! All hardware and software is provided. It’s a fun-filled, inspiring, race-to-the-finish with a final presentation that will show off the work, creativity and output from each team. The winning team will be announced at the conclusion and will receive a free pass to attend the conference on Thursday. The winning team will be officially announced from the main stage during Closing Remarks and receive a $1,000 Visa gift card!

Please note: For a limited time we are offering a Hackathon only price of just $100! To register for the Hackathon only please contact Samantha.Lindsay(at)
