HAMILTON, UK, June 7, 2022 / — NAFEM, the International Association for the Engineering Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Community, has announced that Tampa, Florida, USA, will be the host city for its 19th World Congress, to be held from July 15 to May 18, 2023. Bringing the global simulation community together once again, this marks a very welcome in-person return to the event after Congress 2021 had to be held online. “We are thrilled to be back in the United States for NAFEMS World Congress 2023 (NWC23),” commented NAFEMS CEO Tim Morris. “This will be the second time our Congress has been held in Florida, and we look forward to returning to an in-person experience in ‘The Sunshine State’.”

Covering all aspects of analysis and simulation, from traditional methods such as FEA and CFD, to emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, generative design and additive manufacturing, NWC23 promises to have something for everyone in the industry. “I look forward to bringing Congress back to life next year! said Roger Oswald, head of the NAFEMS congress. “We have such a diverse and vibrant community, and we look forward to meeting them all again in person. Discussing the next steps in technology with colleagues and finding common ground across industries, technologies and continents is an experience like no other, and doing it all in a fantastic city like Tampa is sure to make for a truly amazing event.”

For over thirty-five years, the NAFEMS World Congress has been at the pinnacle of the development of all forms of technical analysis, simulation and computer modeling. Bringing together analysts, engineers, industry experts, academics and thought leaders, the event has become a vehicle for major product launches, multimillion-dollar acquisitions and technological innovations. “Many conferences claim to be unmissable, but it’s safe to say that every major player in the simulation industry attends our World Congress on a regular basis,” added David Quinn, Marketing Director of NAFEMS. “It’s the only event where everyone is on an equal footing, from international software companies to two-person consulting start-ups. Every article we publish goes through the same rigorous peer review process, and every presenter, participant and exhibitor is equally important to our community.”

A call for papers for the Congress will be open in the coming weeks, and full details of all the opportunities you will have to get involved will be available at where you can also find out more about previous congresses.
