Call for Papers

The International CAE Conference & Exhibition has a 36-year track record rendering it unique in the industry, where it is recognized as the richest, most intense and stimulating annual meeting of minds from all parts of the engineering simulation environment across industry and academia, the public and private sectors.

As it always has, the conference reflects, examines, and amplifies the trends and technologies emerging from the engineering simulation environment. This year, the conference examines engineering simulation and its role "At the epicenter of the digital transformation of industry".

The conference program will explore engineering simulation as the cornerstone of a successful digital transformation strategy, enabling the interconnection of different technologies and platforms to address a company’s business goals against the background of the industry sector and corporate strategy.

The selection of the best suited new technologies and approaches to create an infrastructure that integrates the human resources and existing investments and methods to meet the company’s requirements based on its sector, size and position in the production chain will all be examined at both a strategic and technical level during this year’s conference.


The conference welcomes papers for the industrial sectors listed below that not only highlight the value of engineering simulation, but that also illustrate the pervasiveness of simulation-based engineering and sciences (SBES) pushing the boundaries of simulation and driving the digital transformation of industry.

  • Aerospace & Defense

  • Automotive & Transportation

  • Energy, Oil & Gas

  • Manufacturing


The International CAE Conference invites recorded contributions to the five-day program that address the landscape of simulation-based engineering and sciences and cover both the outstanding achievements of today as well as the ground-breaking prospects for the future.

Submit an abstract together with a mini-trailer (of between 3 and 5 minutes) featuring your proposed conference speaker that provides leading insights, illustrates success stories, or showcases the engineering applications and/or technology adopted to embrace and overcome industry challenges, for your chance to present to a global audience of industry decision makers and professionals.

All abstracts must be submitted for consideration by the 13th September 2020 using the online submission form. The mini trailers must be recorded and uploaded onto the dedicated storage archive.

Abstracts (1000 characters max.) should clearly state the paper’s title, the author’s name(s), the organization and its contact details (address, telephone number and email address), as well as a photo and a short CV of the proposed speaker.
The mini-trailer (video clips) should adhere to the guidelines that are available here.
