2018 Global Altair Technology Conference keynotes announced


The initial keynote presentations and overall agenda for Altair's 2018 Global Altair Technology Conference, taking place at the Palais des Congrès d’Issy in Paris, France from 16th-18th October, has been announced

Featuring keynotes and industry presentations from Airbus, Ferrari, Alstom, Renault, Harvard Business School, Columbia University, Zaha Hadid, BMW, Schneider Electric, and many others, this year's event is aiming to be the premier event in Simulation-Driven Innovation. This global event includes in depth workshops, deep technical sessions, and industry presentations on the latest technology trends such as IoT and the digital twin, e-mobility and electric vehicle design, and the impact of AI and machine learning on the future of design. 

The conference will begin on 16th October with eight dedicated workshops offering premier learning forums for emerging trends and the latest technology in product development. 17th October will offer inspirational keynotes from Altair Executives and an impressive lineup of prestigious speakers including Stephan Thomke from Harvard Business School and Andrea Merulla from Ferrari. Dozens of insightful industry presentations follow on 18th October, with deep technical sessions on over ten simulation topics including electromagnetics, crash and safety, fluid dynamics and model-based development.

Demonstrating effective leverage of simulation, optimisation, and HPC to deliver outstanding products and experiences, this conference brings great value to industry leaders, product designers, technologists and engineers. 

Antonio Di Carlo at RUAG Space AG, stated: “Curiosity stimulates creativity. The conference is always interesting, because you get a chance to see what is coming up in months and years to come for ideas on how we can improve our processes, speed up our daily work or simply get an idea for your next work coming from an environment which you did not think about.” 

James Scapa, Altair’s Founder, Chairman, and CEO, added: “Altair’s thought leadership around simulation driven innovation and our strong commitment to pursue and experiment with emerging technologies has separated Altair as a leader in the product design world. As a result, the ATC conferences naturally foster an exchange of ideas around innovation and provide a fresh perspective to our attendees who find them unique and extremely useful. This year’s Global ATC in Paris is shaping up to be excellent, with world-class speakers and amazing content spanning technologies from advanced simulation and optimisation to digital Twin and Machine Learning.”
