When: Sep 18, 2019

Right before the conference we will offer CAESES® workshops with hands-on exercises where you can try out new features, and where your feedback is welcome. These workshops will be given in smaller groups and are intended to also trigger lively discussions among CAESES® users. We are still putting together the workshop content. Feel free to send us your suggestions! For registration, please use the form at the bottom of this page.



A first preliminary agenda is coming up soon, so stay tuned!


We are happy to announce that the keynote will be given by Philip Ehrhorn, the Co-Inventor of the “The Great Bubble Barrier“. In his presentation “Where the plastic problem begins and how we can tackle it with air bubbles”, Philip will talk about the global plastic pollution and what solutions can help to clean up our rivers and oceans.

Special Sessions

There will be sessions on the European R&D project HOLISHIP as well as on the turbomachinery project GAMMA. These sessions will give you deeper insights into how R&D additionally drives several CAESES developments. Both sessions will take place on Friday, Sep 20, 2019.
