Online COMSOL Conference 2020 North America Announced for October 7-8

May 22 2020, 02:30
The COMSOL Conference 2020 North America will be held online this year! The annual conference moved to an online format in order to better accommodate the uncertainty in travel and in-person meetings. Program highlights still include keynote talks, presentations, and panel discussions featuring speakers across all fields of engineering, apart from the traditional news announcements. There will still be Interactive Tech Café sessions on modeling topics, featuring questions from users, and lecture-based mini-courses for both new and experienced users.

The annual COMSOL Conference focusing on advancing skills and furthering collaboration among engineers and scientists in the area of multiphysics simulation, will for the first time run online. Instead of in-person meetings, the conference will feature interactive sessions, virtual meetings and one-on-one discussions. The online format will also expand the geographic reach, as anyone can connect from anywhere. 

Participants, from the comfort of their own workstations, will be able to experience event highlights, including:

- Invited speakers from industry and academia sharing their experiences using multiphysics modeling and simulation apps
- COMSOL keynotes featuring news and software product announcements
- User presentations showcasing research achievements and innovative design projects
- Panel discussions on simulation apps, heat transfer modeling, and electromagnetics simulation
- Tech Cafés - interactive sessions where software developers and technical product managers take modeling questions directly form COMSOL users
- Minicourses offering learning opportunities for any level of simulation expertise, from introductory to advanced
- Virtual exhibition and poster session

"With recent travel restrictions and social distancing in mind, moving the conference online this year is clearly the best option," says Lauren Sansone, marketing and events director at COMSOL, Inc. She adds, "The COMSOL Conference North America will be easy to join online, without travel time or time away from home. We believe that the online conference will be attractive to many, as it will also be easier to fit with a busy schedule and other obligations. As we will miss out on in-person meetings, we will be placing extra emphasis on providing interactive, small group sessions, and one-on-one discussions. An added benefit is that we will also have access to COMSOL's global pool of engineers, as it will be equally easy for them to join the conversations, from anywhere."

Abstract Submission for Posters and Papers
The Program Committee for the COMSOL Conference 2020 North America is now inviting abstract submissions for posters and papers on simulation work and applications from users of COMSOL Multiphysics to present at the conference.

The papers and posters accepted for presentation will later be shared with the community through the open-access Technical Papers and Presentations database Technical Papers and Presentations database, with a global reach.

The abstract submission deadlines for the COMSOL Conference 2020 North America are: Early Bird submission by July 17th; Final Abstract submission by August 21st.
