Keynote speakers announced for Altair's Biennial Technology Conference

13 Aug 2013 Leamington Spa - Altair Engineering Ltd, a global provider of technology and services that empowers client innovation and decision-making, have announced the world leading companies who will present visionary keynote addresses at the 8th Altair Technology Conference on the 10th September 2013 at the Heritage Motor Centre in Gaydon, Warwickshire. They will discuss the current business challenges facing UK industry today, show their vision for the future of engineering and demonstrate the development of innovation in their industries.

The keynote addresses will include:

  • Deyan Sudjic OBE, Director Design Museum, London
  • John Roberts, Chief Engineer A380, Airbus Operations Ltd

The biennial conference will bring together companies which have benefited significantly by integrating the Altair computer aided engineering (CAE) technology, HyperWorks, into their design processes. They will demonstrate how leading UK companies are using virtual design and simulation to develop a competitive edge, successfully meeting engineering and business challenges in the current market environment.

The event has also attracted an industry A-list of technical speakers from Airbus, BAE Systems, EADS, Gestamp, Jaguar Land Rover, Plaxton, SSTL, Supacat, and more.

The 2013 technical sessions will cover key engineering topics specifically designed to equip the audience with new ideas and techniques to use in their own companies, which will help drive innovation and productivity gains throughout the product design process. The sessions will cover solver technologies for accurate analysis, structural optimisation for optimum product performance, enterprise process management and revolutionary methods for designing with composite materials.

"I am pleased to say that once again our conference agenda has exceeded the high standard set in 2011. Our first Technology Conference was held over twelve years ago and the event has gone on to earn a reputation for presenting highly innovative and successful simulation applications that demonstrate real business benefits", explained Hakan Ekman, Managing Director, Altair Engineering Ltd. "The conference creates an exciting forum for discussion among leading thinkers and practitioners within the UK and Ireland engineering community. With over three hundred attendees at our last conference, we are confident that this year will be even more successful and provide delegates with great value during the day."

The free to attend event, open to all industries, takes place at the Heritage Motor Centre in Gaydon, Warwickshire, and is renowned as the 'must attend' conference within the UK engineering community thanks to its reputation for extremely high quality speakers and highly valuable technical content. On-line registration and a complete seminar agenda are now available at
