W-FACE

Wisconsin Forum on Advanced Computing in Engineering

Bringing experts together to discuss the state of the art and shape the future of advanced computing in engineering

Overview

The Wisconsin Forum on Advanced Computing in Engineering aims at bringing together two communities vested in modeling/simulation/visualization: consumers of modeling/simulation/visualization solutions, and solution producers. One of the main goals of this forum is to understand collectively what is the state of the art in Computing in Engineering. To this end, and since this is a forum rather than a conference, the participants are expected to give rapid fire 10-15 minute talks on a topic that is relevant to the consumer and/or producer communities. These talks are envisioned to serve as the starting point for one-on-one discussions during breaks and social events organized as part of WFACE.

For solution consumers: each participating company is expected to give a 10-15 min talk that touches on the following topics:

  1. Success stories in modeling and/or simulation and/or visualization.
  2. Perceived limitations that hinder productivity.
  3. Five bullet modeling/simulation/visualization wish-list.

For solution producers: each talk would express the presenter’s perspective on:

  1. The state of the art in either hardware or software for modeling/simulation/visualization.
  2. How he/she perceives the future of advanced computing shaping up.
