03.03.2014 -

"Modularity Mastering Complexity" is the theme chosen by ESTECO SpA for the 6th edition of the modeFRONTIER International Users' Meeting. The event, dedicated to users of the engineering optimization software developed by the Italian company, will be held in Trieste on the 12th and 13th May 2014 at the newly renovated Magazzino 42.


Every two years the event draws over 200 participants from all over the world to the northern- Italian city for two information-packed days dedicated to the most innovative applications of ESTECO technology: the last editions saw over 40 speakers from the most important international research centers and companies including Ferrari, Petrobras, BMW, Jaguar Land Rover, Alenia

Aermacchi, Honda R&D and Volvo Corporation. The meeting is the perfect opportunity for users from different, technology-intensive industrial sectors and the world of academia and research to exchange and compare ideas. modeFRONTIER users will testify to the versatility of the software and, given their different backgrounds, provide interesting starting-points for future applications and innovations.


The theme chosen for the event - "Modularity Mastering Complexity" - tackles some of the issues facing the world of engineering today. The complexity of engineering processes represents a critical challenge in an increasingly demanding and competitive market. While time-to-market is decreasing, the number of scientific disciplines and departments involved in the process chain are increasing. One way of meeting this challenge lies in the modularity of innovative software solutions such as those developed by ESTECO which help individual specialists focus on their field of expertise within a collaborative process that embraces process integration, technology and simulation and optimization know-how.



The conference is open to both academic and industry contributions showing how modeFRONTIER has been applied to accelerate product innovation. Authors have until 17th February 2014 to submit their abstracts. The deadline for full presentations/papers is 30th April 2014.
