The CONVERGE User Conference is your chance to formally present your research and informally discuss your simulations with some of the best minds in CFD. If you wish to speak at the CONVERGE User Conference, please submit an abstract below. No written paper is required!

All presenters must register for the conference. In addition, presenters will be asked to submit their slides prior to the conference.


We’re developing an amazing lineup of speakers to share their latest work in CFD and CONVERGE. Check back regularly for updates on the list of speakers and the agenda for the event.
