1st Software & Industrial Workshop, and Midterm Review, in Athens

27-11-2017 έως 01-12-2017

The event will start on Monday early afternoon and will close on Friday early afternoon. The ARCADES meeting will take place at the cultural center of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, “Kostis Palamas” building, in downtown Athens. There shall be two invited speakers are Stefan Boschert (Siemens) and Tom Grandine (Boeing), also members of the Advisory committee of ARCADES. There will be presentations / software tutorials by network member RISC-Software, as well as CAD software company Beta-CAE (Thessaloniki, Greece). On Thursday evening, there will be the Workshop dinner.

About ARCADES project

4 Iniversities - 3 Research Centers - 6 Industrial partners 

ARCADES aims at disrupting the traditional paradigm in Computer-Aided Design (CAD) by exploiting cutting-edge research in mathematics and algorithm design. Geometry is now a critical tool in a large number of key applications; somewhat surprisingly, however, several approaches of the CAD industry are outdated, and 3D geometry processing is becoming increasingly the weak link. This is alarming in sectors where CAD faces new challenges arising from fast point acquisition, big data, and mobile computing, but also in robotics, simulation, animation, fabrication and manufacturing, where CAD strives to address crucial societal and market needs. The challenge taken up by ARCADES is to invert the trend of CAD industry lagging behind mathematical breakthroughs and to build the next generation of CAD software based on strong foundations from algebraic geometry, differential geometry, scientific computing, and algorithm design. Our game-changing methods lead to real-time modelers for architectural geometry and visualisation, to isogeometric and design-through-analysis software for shape optimisation, and marine design & hydrodynamics, and to tools for motion design, robot kinematics, path planning, and control of machining tools.
