In addition to the conference, participants can design their own Best Practices Training day choosing from 15 available classes like, Aero-thermal Simulation of Vehicles, Turbulence Modeling, Design Optimization, and Optimum Mesh Design.

Attendees will learn the secret of how to use CAE more effectively in their organization, perform more simulations for less effort, and begin exploring the whole design space rather than a few points. They will leave the event with a complete understanding of the business benefits of simulation and realistic implementation strategies for their organization.
