Photos from the COMSOL 4.4 Launch Event in Silicon Valley

In anticipation of the COMSOL 4.4 release, the COMSOL office in Palo Alto decided to try something new. Feeling inspired by the very successful COMSOL Conference in Boston, we held an all-day launch event in Silicon Valley. Here’s a round-up of the event and some of the photos we took.
About the COMSOL 4.4 Launch Event
The goal of the event was to provide attendees with a sneak peek of the exciting new features in COMSOL 4.4. We wanted to provide our users with something compelling and useful — something that would give them a sense of how COMSOL Multiphysics is used in industry, educate them on the new features, and also build their simulation skills with the software in general. Putting our heads together, the COMSOL 4.4 Launch Event was born.
The all-day event featured user presentations intermingled with parallel sessions of topical workshops during the day, and ended with and evening social at a popular watering hole nearby. Our three invited speakers — Manyalibo Matthews (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory), Peter Woytowitz (LAM Research), and Jon Ebert (SC Solutions) — delivered very interesting talks on laser heating, semiconductor processing, and sensor development. In between of these user presentations, the COMSOL team led eight workshop sessions, covering everything from an introduction to COMSOL Multiphysics version 4.4 and the user interface enhancements to six application-specific workshops (RF, AC/DC, and Heat Transfer, to name a few). The event concluded with an overview of the new features added across the product suite, followed by an evening social.
All-in-all it was a very enjoyable and successful day. Below are a few photos that capture parts of this exciting event:
Thank you to all of you who came out and joined us in Silicon Valley for the COMSOL 4.4 Launch Event! And, for those of you that could not, be sure to check the workshop schedule where you can find information about free COMSOL workshops near you. The software release and roll-out has just started and you too can join us for an introduction to the new version of COMSOL Multiphysics.
