First ASSESS Congress to be Held January 20-22, 2016

Cyon Research and the ASSESS Initiative announce the First ASSESS Congress, which will be January 20-22 in Potomac, Maryland at the Bolger Center. The ASSESS 2016 Congress is centered on two intersecting domains: the first is the domain of design and engineering of products and the internet of things; the second is the domain of complex decisions, not just about products, but also strategies, politics, infrastructure, and other difficult areas that justify taking a long, hard look at the consequences of setting a direction.

ASSESS 2016 starts where the ASSESS Summit left off, bringing together the key participants to further review the current status, issues, goals and actionable items of the ASSESS Initiative. This year's summit continues with a deeper and broader pool of leadership from the community of domain experts, industry analysts, software providers, researchers, and others in the community of model-based analysis, simulation and systems engineering. The role of the ASSESS 2016 congress is to guide and influence software strategies to the capture value of, and to enable, expanding the use and practical scope of software for model-based analysis, simulation and systems engineering. Those participating in ASSESS 2016 will help shape the industry and product strategies for the next decade.

"We consider our participation in ASSESS not only an opportunity, but also an obligation," commented said Sam Saltiel, chief communications officer of BETA CAE Systems. "Being a part of this forum, along with the most influential parties of our community, is of paramount importance for the mapping of a coherent and successful overall strategy for simulation."

ASSESS 2016 is a working congress, held by Cyon Research. Those participating in the congress will be engaged in setting the goals and strategies for the industry. A key part of that discussion will center on the output from the ASSESS Summit held this past January, which resulted it a weighted list of where we should be spending our attention. The consensus of that summit was that the broader industry should be allowed to share its thoughts on the topics raised at the summit. If you are an active participant in analysis, simulation, or systems engineering, please consider voting on where the industry should spend its attention by completing the very short ASSESS survey. The vote will remain open until the end of 2015. Graduate students are welcome to participate.

"We see that multidisciplinary simulation and design exploration is the key to facilitating innovation and lowering product development costs. To that point, we are proud to sponsor ASSESS 2016, an event that will influence the direction of the industry for years to come," concluded David Vaughn, vice president of marketing for CD-adapco.
