Altair announces keynote presentations and detailed agenda for the 7th European Altair Technology Conference in Munich

8 May 2014 Troy - Altair has announced further agenda details for the 7th European Altair Technology Conference (ATC), which is being held at the Dolce Munich Unterschleissheim in Munich, Germany, from June 24-26, 2014. The 2014 conference agenda will contain more than 100 keynote and technical presentations from various industries, highlighting topics such as Lightweight Design, Lead Time Reduction, Crash & Safety as well as Impact Simulation, Multiphysics & CFD, Design for Additive Manufacturing, System Simulation, Architectural Design, and Noise & Vibration.

The conference will kick off on June 24th with three technical seminars, a solid Thinking Inspire product training session, a panel discussion entitled "The Next Big Idea", and the FEKO User Meeting 2014.

"The Next Big Idea" is a new event format for the European ATC, moderated by Boris Schmidt, Editor for automotive and technology topics at the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ). The discussion will explore future demands and interesting opportunities to meet the challenges posed by disruptive technologies, emerging business models, climate change, and many other business and social transitions. The following projects will be presented and discussed:

  • ACENTISS GmbH: "Electric Unmanned Reconnaissance Optionally Piloted Airborne System (EUROPAS)"
  • Altair: "Innovation Driven Design"
  • City Transformer: "City Transformer - the Foldable Car Concept that will Change the Face of Inner City Traffic"
  • EOS GmbH: "Industrial 3D Printing - A Driver for Sustainability"
  • Sensodrive: "Man-Machine Interface"
  • Jaguar Land Rover: "Lightweight Automotive Design"

The three technical seminars will cover the following topics:

  • Altair OptiStruct for Non-Linear Analysis and Optimization
  • Predicting Acoustic Behaviour with Altair HyperWorks
  • Multi-Disciplinary Optimization (MDO) - Best Practices and Methods

Keynote presentations scheduled for the mornings of June 25th and 26th will come from Altair, Jaguar Land Rover, Porsche, Scania, Stadler Rail, GKN Aerospace, Valeo, Voith, Magna Steyer, and MAN Truck & Bus. Multiple concurrent tracks during the afternoons of both days will cover a wide variety of topics, including lightweight design, multiphysics and computational fluid dynamics, lead time reduction, additive layer manufacturing, system simulation, crash & safety, architecture, crash & impact, structures, and noise & vibrations. The 2nd annual Altair Academic & Industry Collaboration Day will occur on day three of the conference, bringing together academic researchers and industry practitioners to share best practices and lessons learned.

"I'm very excited about the great presentation proposals we have received from our customers and partners, and I am really looking forward to the event. We have received a lot of positive feedback regarding our choice of Munich as this year's conference location, since it has the strongest economy of any German city and is also the home of the headquarters of many large companies", stated Dr. Detlef Schneider, Senior Vice President EMEA, Altair. "This year's conference contains many new topics and events and I'm sure that we will initiate some very fruitful discussions, offer valuable technology transfer, and provide the opportunity for networking between our customers."

Confirmed exhibitors and sponsors of this year's event include HP/Intel, HBM nCode, AlphaSTAR, Componeering, Cedrem, Cray, FLUIDON, Ingenieurbüro Huß & Feickert GmbH, JSOL, Magna Powertrain Engineering Center Steyr GmbH & Co KG (FEMFAT), Nafems, NovaCast, Part Engineering, PDTec, Quantech, Renishaw, Software Cradle, TAI Thermo Analytics Inc., and Total Materia.

While registration for the conference itself is free of charge, attendance at the seminars will be charged at a fee of 200 euro per person plus VAT. On-line registration and a detailed agenda are available at www.altairatc.com/europe .
