Join the event that brings the engineering simulation community together

Our BEFORE REALITY international conference, 17 years since its first launch, has established a reputation as a premium gathering for the engineering simulation community.

Its success is attributed to the CAE community which honors every two years the BEFORE REALITY conference as a perfect chance to get together, and promote an international exchange of the latest concepts, knowledge, and development requirements on our software products and services.


The conference will be of interest to decision makers, strategy & methodology planners, simulation experts, applications users and researchers at the forefront of the CAE simulation for various disciplines, coming from OEMs and suppliers from a wide spectrum of industrial sectors, especially from, yet not limited to the: automotive, motorsports, railway vehicles, aerospace, shipbuilding / offshore, power tools, defence, energy, heavy machinery, biomechanics, electronics, etc.

All those who wish to communicate recent advances and future trends in the computational engineering technologies, methods and practices for solving the problems of the modern industry by using our software products, are welcome to make the conference a success.

Please, refer to the Call for Presentations for details on how to contribute.


During the event you will have the opportunity to:

- Meet, exchange ideas, and collaborate with CAE experts from around the world.
- Present your success stories and innovative ideas and discuss them within a unique global forum.
