Can’t-Miss Sessions


An in-depth session where you’ll learn how organizations can extract the value of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform while leveraging their existing CAD applications.

Model-based Systems Engineering

Dassault Systèmes expert speakers will review the Aerospace and Defense solution strategy aligned to support MBSE.

Topology Optimization Using the Functional Generative Design (GDE) Application

This session will walk through the process of preforming topology optimization on a part using the Functional Generative Design (GDE) app.

Track Name Track Description


Engineering Analysis & Simulation

This track will focus on the processes, methods, and tools for modeling and synthesis of engineering systems and for engineering analysis and simulation of products. Typical sessions describe end-user scenarios of how realistic simulations are developed to depict a product's physical behavior, including static, dynamic, mechanical and thermal operating-load environments, as well as the performance of ergonomic studies for a product's assembly, operation and maintenance. Best practices will be shared for virtually simulating and optimizing products by accommodating multiple concurrent, and generally conflicting, operational requirements of a product.


Information Management

Learn how any type of data (and related information) is stored and utilized in any system by means of processes and/or tools, with committees focused on information and data management, collaboration, data exchange and migration, service after sale, and model-based enterprise.


Infrastructure, Develop, Deploy & Knowledge (IDDK)

Gain insights into the installation, configuration, distribution and administration of Dassault Systèmes Applications while discovering the development of applications and tools for the automation tasks within these applications. This includes the complementary tools and heterogeneous environments that are the reality of our IT infrastructure and program development within our companies. Learn about the latest in both client and server hardware, techniques for deploying and maintaining Dassault Systèmes Applications, and advances in Knowledge Based Engineering to capture and reuse corporate design, analysis and manufacturing expertise.



This track will follow your entire manufacturing processes from concurrent product definition to shop floor graphic work instructions. This will allow manufacturers in any industry to virtually define, plan, create, monitor and control all production processes. Our topics focus on solving your challenges, whether it's an implementation on a large scale or generating, simulating, and optimizing tool paths from various domain experts. We will explore these experiences and technologies using Dassault Systèmes Manufacturing Lifecycle Management (MLM).


Product Definition

This track covers the software and processes for product development from conceptual design to release. Sessions will address optimizing your design practices to maximize the performance of CATIA and the CAA partner products. Topics include a product development view of optimizing engineering information for a PDM, V5, V6, 3DEXPERIENCE Deployment, and meeting the requirements of the extended enterprise.
