No Tricks – The DE Design & Simulation Summit Scheduled for Halloween 2024

The upcoming virtual conference kicks off with AI-based simulation keynote

The upcoming virtual conference kicks off with AI-based simulation keynote

The Digital Engineering Design & Simulation Summit will return on Oct. 31, 2024, with a half-day of virtual sessions focused on artificial intelligence, simulation, design for additive manufacturing (DfAM), digital twins, and more.

Speakers have yet to be announced, but you can learn more about the event and sessions at the Design & Simulation Summit website, and register for sessions here.

While there won't be any candy or costumes during the virtual event, which falls on Halloween, there will be plenty of industry-leading content to help designers and engineers optimize their workflows.

The 2024 event will lead off with a keynote panel discussion focused on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in simulation and analysis. Our experts will discuss how AI, machine learning (ML), and reduced order models (ROMs) can augment and optimize classic design and simulation workflows. Can AI successfully model against uncertainty? What data do you need to train the model? How do you prevent AI hallucination, detect corner cases where ROMs may not be advisable, or avoid model collapse?

There will be four additional sessions focused on key design and engineering technology areas. They include:

Design: Design processes have been disrupted by demands for faster product iterations, more complex products, and the increased integration of software, electronics, and mechanical systems. Learn how simulation-led design approaches and new technologies (such as generative design) are revolutionizing workflows and improving product quality.

Additive Manufacturing: Additive manufacturing has evolved from a niche technology for producing prototypes to a key enabler of digital manufacturing. Organizations in the aerospace, defense, automotive and other industries are printing both plastic and metal components for end-use applications. Learn about the latest trends in materials, design-for-additive (DfAM) approaches, and emerging 3D printing technologies.

Engineering Computing: Engineering workstations — from desktop systems to mobile computers — have seen an unprecedented boost in compute power over the past several years. Learn how to best take advantage of new high-powered CPUs and GPUs, and what you need to know to configure the right workstation for your engineering workflows.

Digital Twins: Digital twins are virtual models of physical products and components, and could play a large role in digitalization strategies. This session will cover how digital twins will impact the design and manufacturing process, how organizations can leverage the data created by these models, and what enabling technologies will be required.

More details will be announced in the coming weeks. The 2023 event included a keynote panel on AI in design for additive manufacturing, as well as a case study on the use of digital twins by smaller companies; a comparison of how cloud or workstation-based compute resources can benefit design; best practices for engineering analysis; requirement writing for engineers.
