The 12th annual COMSOL Conference made a stop in Bangalore last week, where it was packed for over two days with learning and networking opportunities. Each year, the conference brings simulation experts from both industry and academia together, and this year was no different! Read on for highlights from the conference and a photo slideshow.
A Quick Recap of the COMSOL Conference 2016 Bangalore
Over 200 attendees gathered for the COMSOL Conference 2016 Bangalore to learn about multiphysics simulation, exchange ideas, and see how fellow engineers are using simulation in their research. I enjoyed the conference this year and appreciated the chance to connect with some of you and watch your presentations.
One highlight of this year’s conference was listening to inspiring keynote talks from Gyanendra Roy from Mahindra Two Wheelers and Dr. Shriganesh Prabhu from Tata Institute of Fundamental Research. My colleague Vineet Dravid also hosted an interesting roundtable discussion on using simulation to teach technical concepts. The conference wrapped up with an awards ceremony for the Best Paper, Best Poster, and Popular Choice Poster awards.

What Attendees Had to Say About Their Experiences
Siddharth Ramakrishnan, Mahindra & Mahindra Limited:
“[The COMSOL Conference] was highly informative and a valuable experience to see the work of industrial researchers and academicians. [COMSOL Multiphysics] is a user-friendly software that has a great potential to change the CAE simulation experience.”
Chethan Ravi B R, Siemens Technology and Services Private Limited:
“COMSOL [Conference] always provides an opportunity to present our work to the larger technical community and helps us to keep ourselves updated with the recent trends in FEA. I am happy with the updates COMSOL comes up [with] in their tool in every new release and it is helping us a lot to solve our complex multiphysics problems.”
Chaitanya Kishore K, ATOA Scientific Technologies Limited:
“The team [at] COMSOL has organized COMSOL Conference 2016 Bangalore well. Such conferences provide [a] platform to meet technical persons and further discuss and share our views on many topics related to COMSOL. Interesting, exciting, and I am looking forward to [attending] more conferences from COMSOL in [the] future.”
Ravindra Kumar, Jayem Automotives Private Limited:
“The conference presentations and minicourses are very educative and inspire others to use engineering simulation in their field of work.”
Thennavarajan Subramanian, National Aerospace Laboratories:
“[The] wonderful conference provided [us] with hands-on training and keynotes for realistic [simulations], especially for the [Structural Mechanics, Multibody Dynamics, and Rotordynamics modules].”
On behalf of COMSOL and the conference team, I would like to thank all of the presenters and attendees for contributing to this event, especially our Gold Sponsors: Simpleware and Noumenon. I hope to see you next year!
