The Center for Understanding Change is underwriting this very special summit on simulation software, which took place at the Santa Fe Institute, January 8-9, 2015
The past five+ years have been clouded by massive economic upheavals – and not just from the recession. The purpose of this Summit is to identify and resolve the issues that confront simulation software and the simulation software industry as we move beyond the recent economic crash and face new and complex challenges. We’re defining the simulation software industry as the ecosystem that creates or uses software to analyze, and simulate complex systems/products.
The need for simulation tools, products, and services has never been higher, yet we face major challenges limiting our ability to capitalize on that need. Some of those challenges are obvious to all, some less so – and there are more that we haven’t even considered yet. The Summit is designed to put a stake in the ground and prioritize our issues, expose hidden issues, and start the conversation that we jointly benefit by discussing. Attending the Summit will be a “who's who” of the CAE and engineering software industry: 40 visionaries, each with the title and position that empowers them to implement their vision.
This is a major international summit (by invitation only) in the spirit of the great European summits in the sciences earlier this century.
The results of this historic summit were shared at a press conference on January 13, 2015 and a paper is expected to follow.
