One Day in Mont-Tremblant!

Third day is reserved for an optional day-trip to Mont-Tremblant. The timing of the conference has been carefully chosen to coincide with the magnificent fall colors of Quebec. The village of Mont-Tremblant, situated 130km north of Montreal, is the best place to experience this unique spectacle. In addition to contemplating the wonderful scenery, you may hike the mountain trail, take a ride to the mountaintop or shop for some Quebec souvenirs.

"I think the conference was well put together, it was nice to see how everyone was using the software and what was being done with it. I had this feeling of being on the cutting edge from academia to experimental electric motor optimization. That was really eye opening. It was nice to make connections and speak with people on the private industry side of things as well so that is a huge plus.
Montreal is a great location, I did not realize how far away from home it would feel so that was nice to get away and experience a new place. "

"I attended the EMWorks user conference with about one week of self-taught training using the EMWorks videos and Demos. Although the Demos and videos and direct support via phone were great to get me going nothing compares to sitting in a room with EMWorks engineers and getting hands on instruction. 5 Stars for a great first conference. I look forward to coming back next year to see all the latest and new features. Great Job!"

"The conference was well-organized and the presentation topics were relevant and interesting."

"The 2018 EMWorks conference in Montreal was a fantastic experience in which I met some truly inspirational people. I was immediately greeted in a friendly manner, and the enthusiasm of the EMworks team was evident from the beginning. The presentations were all interesting and relevant, and the associated questions were also stimulating. The highlight of the conference was a day-trip to Mont Tremblant, where we could socialise and exchange experiences while enjoying the stunning scenery. This event was well organised by a passionate EMS team with a wealth of practical and theoretical knowledge. I would thoroughly recommend this conference to anyone interested."
Nathan Whear

"Attending this conference was an amazing experience. The presentations were very interesting and offered new ideas and valuable insight into the role of simulations in industry. I particularly appreciated the opportunities for discussion and sharing of experiences between sessions. The training course was helpful and provided some useful tips for performing motion coupling analyses. On the final day of the conference, we went on a day-trip to Mont-Tremblant which was absolutely breath-taking. I would definitely recommend attending this conference."
Robin Horn
University of Edinburgh
"The good atmosphere at 2018 EMWorks user conference has been accompanied by interesting presentations. The balance regarding the presentations, between young motivated students and the old guys with experience made the event lively. Thanks a lot for the event and we hope that we can come back to the next EMWorks user conference."
