Mark Your Calendar for the GoldSim User Conference in September 2015!

Posted by Rick Kossik

We recently published this in our newsletter, but I thought it would be worthwhile to post here also. After a long hiatus, we plan to host a GoldSim User Conference in Seattle in September 2015.  The conference is just in the planning stages now, but the dates are very likely to be September 24 and 25.  The conference will be preceded (on September 22 and 23) by a two day training workshop (focusing on novice users).

The conference itself will consist of two major parts: 1) a full day of advanced training sessions (likely with two parallel tracks); and 2) a day of presentations of interesting GoldSim applications and discussion forums. GoldSim user conferences provide a great opportunity to meet, network with, and learn from GoldSim staff, and more importantly, other GoldSim users. Almost all of the attendees from past conferences have been GoldSim users from industry, government and consulting. To facilitate effective networking opportunities, we will have two fun social events (the evenings of the 23rd and the 24th) that will also allow you to enjoy Seattle (which is beautiful in September).

We will provide a registration form and hotel information in the next several months.  However, for now, if you are likely to attend, we just want you to save the dates, and to facilitate our planning (e.g., venue, social events, agenda), send us an email with the following information:

  • Are you likely to attend the 2-day conference?
  • Are you likely to attend the 2-day (beginner) training prior to the conference?
  • If attending, would you be interested in presenting a paper describing a GoldSim application that would be of interest to a general audience (people familiar with GoldSim but not necessarily familiar with your application area)?
  • If attending, what advanced features and topics would you like to see discussed?

Please send your responses to software@goldsim.com.

We look forward to seeing you in Seattle in September!
