Engineers, scientists, and researchers will gather in Boston this fall to share their experiences and accomplishments made possible by modeling and simulation tools.
BURLINGTON, MA — COMSOL, Inc. will hold its Fifth Annual COMSOL Conference this fall. The COMSOL Conference 2009 Boston will take place on October 8-10 at the Boston Marriott Newton. This event kicks off a worldwide series of conferences dedicated to the latest developments in multiphysics modeling, simulation, and virtual prototyping.
A major highlight of this year’s event will be the unveiling of COMSOL Multiphysics® version 4.0. The lead developers and Svante Littmarck, President and CEO of COMSOL, will demonstrate the all-new user interface that's delivering a breakthrough in multiphysics simulation for mainstream product development.
An impressive lineup of leading industry professionals from such internationally known engineering and scientific organizations as NASA and GE Global Research will deliver keynote addresses at the COMSOL Conference 2009 Boston. Among the speakers discussing how multiphysics technology has advanced their research dramatically are:
• Edwin Ethridge, Senior Materials Scientist at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, who will describe his work using microwaves for the extraction of water from the moon.
• Michael Vallance of GE Global Research will address the work he leads in developing a high-energy sodium battery for use on hybrid diesel-locomotives.
• Professor Marc K. Smith will discuss how he uses CFD simulations to teach fluid mechanics to undergraduate students at Georgia Institute of Technology.
• Darrell Pepper, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at University of Nevada – Las Vegas will present a benchmarking report on CFD simulation performance.
In addition to the keynote addresses, training sessions, and mini-courses, more than 100 engineers, scientists, and researchers from academia and industry will offer individual user presentations illustrating the application of COMSOL Multiphysics in their simulation projects. Presenters are drawn from a broad assortment of industries, engineering and scientific disciplines, and fields of study. Among the topics covered in the user presentations are acoustics, bioengineering, chemical engineering, earth science, electromagnetics, optical modeling, and transport phenomena. Back again this year by popular demand is the poster session, where attendees meet and discuss multiphysics projects with the presenters then vote for their favorite presentation. A record number of presenters are expected to participate in this annual event.
A key element of the COMSOL conference is the wide range of training opportunities and mini-courses taught by COMSOL application engineers offered to attendees. Topics cover a breadth of interests including acoustics and vibration, chemical engineering, electrochemical engineering, heat transfer, MEMS and piezoelectric simulations, microfluidics, optimization, porous media flow, and RF & microwaves. Also throughout the conference venue, hands-on demo stations staffed by COMSOL experts showcase new products and offer attendees on-the-fly insights and help with their multiphysics simulations.
Additional elements of the COMSOL Conference include an exhibition area for partner products and services, daily networking events, and a banquet dinner honoring the best technical papers and posters as voted on by the program committee and conference attendees. The experience will not end in Boston. The COMSOL Conference tour travels on, making stops in Milan, Bangalore, Shanghai, Beijing, Wuhan, Taipei, Tokyo and Seoul.
The COMSOL Conference is “one of the best conferences I have ever attended,” says Dr. William Clark, an Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. “Compared to other conferences, I felt I got my money´s worth just from the outstanding plenary talks and the reception. Add to that the chance to hear and interact with other users doing exciting work in fields both similar and different from my own, and you have an outstanding conference. But on top of that, I was able to attend five hands-on mini-courses where I learned lots of new COMSOL tricks.”
