Sponsored by Geomagic, COFES 2013's keynote address will feature Alexander Rose, the Executive Director at The Long Now Foundation.
In addition to a full roster of events, COFES 2013 will feature the Design and Sustainability (DaS) Symposium, a unique subset of the overall congress that specifically explores design and sustainability software.
The primary goal of The Long Now Foundation is perfectly aligned with the COFES 2013 focus on resilient thinking," said Brad Holtz, President and CEO of Cyon Research.
COFES (The Congress on the Future of Engineering Software) is Cyon Research's primary event, and it explores investments necessary today to take advantage of future technologies.
As first-timers at COFES, Proficiency was very pleased to find a strong emphasis on CAD interoperability threaded through many sessions," commented Michael Jannery, VP of marketing, Proficiency Inc.
COFES2003 is being planned now for early in 2003 with plans for access to discussions, topics and issues being consolidated into the COFES web site over the coming months.
I think this is due in part to how hard the COFES team works to bring the right people together and in part to the attention to detail that characterizes the event.
I attended COFES for the first time last year, and because of the many valuable relationships I made, am returning again this May.
The key value of COFES is the opportunity to speak directly with some of the main people shaping the CAD industry, ranging from the founders of the industry to the bright young people pitching the potential breakthroughs of tomorrow.
