The 2013 Wisconsin Forum on Advanced Computing in Engineering (W-FACE 2013)

We want to keep this an equation free and marketing free event. It represents an opportunity for friends to get together in Madison in Spring for two days in a relaxed atmosphere in which they get an opportunity to learn from peers from other companies. We anticipate having 15-20 organizations attending WFACE. The following organizations expressed an interest in participating (as of March 4, 2013 – alphabetically listed): 3M, Alion Technologies, Altair, Articcat, Boeing, Caterpillar, FunctionBay, GlaxoSmithKlein, MSC.Software, MathWorks (MATLAB), Nvidia, Oshkosh Truck, Parc (Xerox), Procter&Gamble, Progeneric, Siemens, Simertis, Solidworks, US Army TARDEC, US Navy Research Lab.
