21. Econ Conference – Engineering Simulation Forum

For all those who already use engineering simulation and those who don’t!

Participation in the 21st econ Conference is subject to a fee. The participation fee is €120 for attendants from the industrial sector, and €50 for academic participants (teachers, students).

The 7 plenary sessions will highlight the potential of engineering simulation in various fields such as defence, nuclear energy, rocket development, data management and electromagnetic field computation.

After lunch, the conference will continue in 4 sections. The Structures – Mechanics, Fluid Dynamics, Polymers-Composites and Electromagnetics sections will include 3-3 technical sessions, followed by a debate panel and a live case study.

During the event’s lunch and coffee breaks, visitors can discover in the exhibiton space 3D printing technologies, carbon fibre reinforced composite printing, see the university teams’ rockets and learn about real-time simulation in the concept phase.

Following the sections, a plenary panel discussion will bring together engineers and decision-makers to discuss the use of simulation in development. The event will conclude with the award ceremony of the Simulation Study Competition.

Language of the conference is Hungarian.
