About The Conference

The FFT Acoustic Simulation Conference is a unique opportunity to learn the latest trends in acoustic simulation and how it helps leading companies to improve the acoustic performance of their products. The conference is the perfect platform for international experts to meet, discuss and share the best modeling practices, allowing to maximize the value they can get from acoustic simulation.

In 2018, we are designing a very special event to celebrate a very special occasion: FFT’s 20 years anniversary! 20 years of passion and ambition driven by our customers with the goal of delivering innovative software technologies to simulate the most challenging acoustic problems. We are preparing a lot of celebration activities and we sincerely hope you will join us and help us make this conference an unforgettable event!


Leading Numerous Technology Trends in Vibro-Acoustic
and Aero-Acoustic Modeling since 1998
