Special Interest Group

Life Science

Monday May 15

The Life Sciences Special Interest Group (SIG) meeting is an open forum to learn about recent advances in modeling and simulation that are driving transformation in healthcare and in every industry where human experience-based design concepts are essential. The forum is an opportunity to exchange ideas and explore challenges and solutions with others from around the world who are working on modeling and simulating the human body at different length and time scales, using different physics and chemistry, and for different purposes. Further, it will be a unique opportunity to interact directly with key SIMULIA and BIOVIA technology and business leaders who share the goal to accelerate the use of modeling and simulation to inspire personalized solutions, ranging from personalized medical treatments to personalized protective gear, wearable devices, and everyday items like shoes and clothes.

This Special Interest Group meeting will be invaluable to researchers and engineers from the medical device, pharmaceutical, high tech and consumer products industries who are trying to put people at the center of design and engineering, using virtual human modeling and simulation

Electromagnetics Forum

Thursday May 18

The Electromagnetics Forum is a special parallel track supplementing the technical program on Thursday May 18. During this Forum, SIMULIA will introduce its industry leading technology on electromagnetics that was added to its portfolio through the acquisition of CST in 2016. The forum starts with a broad overview of the electromagnetics technology highlighting the application areas it serves. The overview is followed by industry focused presentations demonstrating the value electromagnetic simulation brings in addressing industry specific challenges in Aerospace & Defense, Transportation & Mobility, and High Tech industries. The Electromagnetics forum is appropriate for any attendee who is interested in increased exposure to electromagnetic simulation and how this simulation fits into their usage of other SIMULIA products, including coupled structural-thermal-electromagnetics analyses.
