Simulation and Modelling 2019

Conference Aston, Birmingham


As engineering inevitability moves into the digital era, it continues to face challenges around simulation and modelling. There is a huge pressure on companies across all industries to move towards total simulation and digital testing in order to avoid the heavy costs associated with physical testing and the building of physical prototypes.

To support all engineering industries, the Simulation and Modelling 2019 conference will provide a forum to discuss the latest developments being made with computer aided and virtual engineering. Explore the advances being made with integration, optimisation and validation, from design stage right through to manufacturing.


  • Hear from leading companies using simulation and modelling including Rolls Royce, Airbus, Amazon Web Services, Wood Group, Caterpillar Global Mining, EDF-Energy, Jaguar Land Rover, and AMRC with Boeing.
  • Discover new modelling techniques that impact industrial design output and competitiveness though more accurate models and efficient design.
  • Identify key challenges and potential solutions relating to a topic of your choice in roundtable discussion.
  • Learn from those working on new methods and approaches to the common challenges across industry.
  • Influence the next generation of software tools by discussing your specific needs and challenges with software developers.
  • Hear directly from suppliers and get an update on the latest technologies in our dedicated exhibition space.
