The first day of training for Science in the Age of Experience 2016 has officially begun! Over the next two days, Dassault Systèmes BIOVIA has scheduled twelve hours of hands-on training with their product experts. With eighteen different sessions, attendees can master any of the solutions BIOVIA has to offer. This is a rare opportunity to learn the latest tips, tricks and techniques from the people who know it best.

After three crazy days of sessions at Science in the Age of Experience, conference attendees get a night off to explore the city of Boston. As one of the oldest cities in the country, Bean Town’s rich history offers something for everyone. Whether you would like to take a walk through time and visit some of the actual sites where key events in the Revolutionary War occurred, catch a game at the oldest ballpark in the country, view one of the most extensive collections of art in the world or explore the vibrant restaurant scene, Boston truly has something for everyone to enjoy.

The last twenty years have seen a massive influx of new, innovative technologies transforming the way we work, play and live. These innovations have reached into the sciences as well: every day advances in technology enable new approaches, techniques and methodologies. Yet as organizations embrace these advances, they must be conscious of how they can improve their overall R&D experience to truly leverage their potential. This year at Science in the Age of Experience you can explore new technologies with transformative capabilities in scientific R&D. The 3DEXPERIENCE Playground will house interactive exhibits ranging from virtual 3D models of a living human heart to projections of the quality of an oil field throughout production.

Today marks the beginning of Science in the Age of Experience, the Dassault Systèmes user conference for advances in scientific research. BIOVIA, along with their sister brand and co-host SIMULIA, have planned a week of in-depth walkthroughs of their solutions, customer success stories, hands-on training and future product roadmaps. While today’s opening plenary session, which features appearances from Bernard Charlès, the CEO of Dassault Systèmes, Professor Martin Karplus, the 2013 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry and Mark Meili of P&G, promises an exciting start, tomorrow morning will keep up the pace with presenters from Sanofi, 3M and Amgen for our plenary sessions.

Science in the Age of Experience, the 2016 user group meeting for the BIOVIA and SIMULIA brands of Dassault Systèmes, is just around the corner! Join over 500 of your colleagues, industry leaders, and product experts at the beautiful Boston Marriott Copley Place from May 23rd – 27th to learn about the latest 3DEXPERIENCE offerings for scientific research. If you have not already registered for Science in the Age of Experience, here are the top ten reasons why you do not want to miss this year’s event.

Keeping pace with a growing need for accelerated innovation is leaving the traditional experiment model of “design, test, repeat” in the dust. Unnecessary physical experimentation takes too long and costs too much. In response, today’s leaders in the CPG industry are embracing the benefits offered by in silico modeling and simulation. These organizations are exploring the varied physical and chemical interactions that power their products and optimizing them. They are making game-changing innovations that have allowed them to design new, groundbreaking products. These benefits offered by modeling and simulation go beyond improved agility or financial gains—they are transformative.

This year at Science in the Age of Experience, we at BIOVIA are very fortunate to have a very strong lineup of customer presentations to highlight the deeper functionalities of the BIOVIA solution portfolio. We believe that these presentations by customers, for customers, can provide some real-world insight into unique use cases which could be the source of transformative value at your organization.

Professor Martin Karplus, the 2013 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry and the Theodore William Richards Professor of Chemistry, emeritus at Harvard University will be providing a keynote address this year at Science in the Age of Experience. His research team focuses on understanding the electronic structure, geometry, and dynamics of molecules of chemical and biological interest. After three decades of work their research has produced the groundbreaking molecular modeling engine CHARMM.
