Photos from the COMSOL Conference 2018 Lausanne
Alyona Friedel November 2, 2018
Nearly 400 academic and industrial engineers and researchers from 38 countries joined us last week for the annual COMSOL Conference in Lausanne. Mild fall weather accompanied us for all three days of the event, letting the sun shine through the impressive Graetzel cell windows of the SwissTech Convention Center. Read about the highlights of the conference and browse the photo album below.
Blending Technology and Tradition
The original Swiss cowbell welcomed COMSOL Conference 2018 Lausanne attendees shortly before the first block of minicourses on Monday morning and, throughout the conference, served as a traditional way to announce the start of the next session. A Swiss cheese and wine degustation icebreaker reception, accompanied by the music of Alphorn Academy of Switzerland, added another bit of traditional flavor to the highly technical conference program.
Conference attendees enjoy coffee and conversation in between sessions.
Over the course of the three-day event, engineers, researchers, professors, and undergraduate students shared their simulation experiences at nearly 30 user presentation sessions. Attendees were also able to choose from 46 technical minicourses covering all areas of physics. In addition, demo stations were available for questions in all disciplines, including for the newly released products and updated features.
