to receive a free badge to JEC 2017 and reserve your seat for Altair's conference, "Unlock the Potential of Lightweight Design with Composites". 

Altair is pleased to be part of the JEC 2017, well-known as the largest international gathering of composites professionals. This year we're exhibiting in Hall 5A at booth N68, stop by and visit with our composite team and Altair Partners ESAComp and HBM nCode. We'll be offering software demonstrations on our newest technology, including Multiscale Designer and exhibiting projects, like the Robot Bike.

Additionally, Altair is hosting a conference within the JEC titled "Unlock the Potential of Lightweight Design with Composites". This session will focus on applications from industry speakers, and notably how simulation is used today to support design, and what are the benefits, as well as research projects and how the community is working on future applications. Finally, we discuss technology trends from Altair and partners, with details about the latest technologies.
