Automotive Simulation World Congress

Ensuring that autonomous vehicles are safe and reliable would require billions of miles of road tests. This impossible task can only be achieved with simulation. Moreover, drastic innovations such as electric powertrains, human-machine interfaces (HMI), connectivity, and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), can only be brought to market with the speed and cost economy of simulation.

Hundreds of automotive executives and experts from around the world gather annually at the Automotive Simulation World Congress to share their insights, best practices and examples of automotive innovation accelerated with simulation.

This year's congress will be an exclusive management event featuring talks by Vice Presidents, Directors, and Sr. Managers from prominent global OEMs, Tier-1 suppliers, market disruptors and technology enablers. They will speak on ADAS and Autonomous Driving, HMIs and Controls, Connectivity, and Vehicle Electrification.

Meet and network with over 150 automotive executives, directors and managers from over 50 companies. Last year's speakers included executives and managers from BMW, Honda, Ferrari, ZF-TRW, Brose, Qualcomm, Intel and others.

Take away ideas for expediting engineering and innovation at your organization with best-practices and examples shared by your peers from around the world.

Enjoy ample networking and discussion opportunities at panel sessions, networking breaks and over a sumptuous Japanese dinner.


Past Conferences


Grand Nikko Tokyo Daiba
2 Chome-6-1 Daiba, Minato-ku,
Tōkyō-to 135-8701, Japan


This year the ASWC will be co-located with two other conferences – ANSYS Electronics Simulation Expo (AESE) and ANSYS Convergence Japan. All ASWC registrants will have full access to the other two conferences. Since electronics now form a major component of vehicles, the co-located AESE will offer unique cross-learning and networking opportunities with executives from the High-Tech industry. The ANSYS Convergence Japan conference will cover details of simulation for engineers and engineering managers.
