Bamberg/Stuttgart, 24th October 2018


With more than 350 participants, 113 presentations, 9 workshops and 30 exhibitors, the LS-DYNA Forum 2018 was again an all-round successful event. The two and a half days in Bamberg were characterised by high-class presentations, inspiring discussions and a lively exchange of ideas.


The German LS-DYNA Forum has become a fixed date in the calendar of LS-DYNA users over the last few years. Also this time the attendees could inform and exchange in five parallel sessions about current trends and developments in LS-DYNA and LS-Opt as well as the corresponding CAE process chains.


In addition to the technical presentations, which provided insights into a variety of different applications, the popular workshops were also part of the agenda again. In nine workshops, the users had the opportunity to work intensively on various topics and deepen their expertise. The daily keynote presentations by renowned speakers from industry and academia rounded off the conference programme.


As always, the accompanying hardware and software exhibition offered plenty of opportunities for conversations. In a relaxed atmosphere this was the ideal place to discuss own topics with other users, to foster existing contacts and to find new ones. The range of present exhibitors once again clearly showed how diverse and extensive the application possibilities of LS-DYNA are.


At this point, DYNAmore would like to thank all involved for a successful conference. Without the dedication and commitment of the participants, exhibitors, session chairs and everyone else involved, a conference of this size would not be possible.


The presentations of the conference will soon be published on the DYNAmore website at www.dynamore.de.
The next event is the 12th European LS-DYNA Conference 2019. From 14-16 May DYNAmore welcomes all LS-DYNA users to Koblenz, Germany. The Call for Papers is already running. DYNAmore is looking forward to numerous submissions and many participants.
