In total, among the 130 customer technical papers accepted by ESI China for this conference, 40 papers will be presented live by industry experts and ESI technical specialists during the event.

At the ESI China User Forum in 2011, ESI launched Virtual Reality Solutions, added to their portfolio of products with the acquisition of IC.IDO GmbH. One year later ESI has teamed with Tongji University to create a Virtual Design Institute, having the aim to build a center of excellence in the field of Virtual Reality applications. Bringing Virtual Engineering to a new level, fast evolving immersive 3D solutions are used by engineers in the design and development phases of new products in order to take collective decisions, work with remote teams and non- engineers. These solutions will be on display throughout the User Forum, providing opportunities to experience this revolutionary technology first hand and to share ideas on the convergence of Virtual Reality and Virtual Prototyping in the broader context of Virtual Engineering.

A gala dinner will be held on September 17, bringing together all attendees in an informal setting for private discussion and networking. A ceremony will be held to reward the best papers of the conference.

On September 19, to close the conference on a technical note, ESI China will propose a training day for software solutions PAM-STAMP 2G, ProCAST, SYSWELD, VA One and IC.IDO. Attendees are welcome to register as they arrive at the conference.
