David Levin

COFES-Russia seminar organized by Cyon Research and LEDAS will be held in Moscow on September, 21. The seminar is organized in the framework of the 4th International isicad Forum, a bi-annual event owned by LEDAS. See some related references below.

A week ago the event’s program was refined and now included – in line with traditions of COFES – a number of working groups (WG). The Organizing Committee in coordination with Brad Holtz has specified six WGs. There will be two rounds (in total – 3 hours) each round includes three WGs that will be working in parallel during 1.5 hours. After these rounds are over, there will be a joint integrating round table + press-conference.

The following 6 working groups are planned.

1. Direct Modeling as a Basis of Future Intelligent CAD
