2018 Global Altair Technology Conference Keynotes and Agenda Announced

July 11, 2018

TROY, Mich., July 11, 2018 — Altair announces initial keynote presentations and overall agenda for its 2018 Global Altair Technology Conference, taking place at the Palais des Congrès d’Issy in Paris, France from October 16 –18. 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 expected 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 October 16 with eight dedicated workshops offering premier learning forums for emerging trends and the latest technology in product development. October 17 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 October 18, with deep technical sessions on over 10 simulation topics including electromagnetics, crash and safety, fluid dynamics and model-based development.

Demonstrating effective leverage of simulation, optimization, and HPC to deliver outstanding products and experiences, this conference brings great value to industry leaders, product designers, technologists and engineers. “Curiosity stimulates creativity,” says Antonio Di Carlo at RUAG Space AG. “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.” Click here to view what previous attendees think of our technology conferences.

“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,” says James Scapa, Altair’s Founder, Chairman, and CEO.  “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 optimization to digital Twin and Machine Learning.”

HPC Serves as a ‘Rosetta Stone’ for the Information Age

July 12, 2018

In an age defined and transformed by its data, several large-scale scientific instruments around the globe might be viewed as a ‘mother lode’ of precious data. With names seemingly created for a ‘techno-speak’ glossary, these interferometers, cyclotrons, sequencers, solenoids, satellite altimeters, and cryo-electron microscopes are churning out data in previously unthinkable and seemingly incomprehensible quantities -- billions, trillions and quadrillions of bits and bytes of electro-magnetic code.
