Ansys and DYNAmore cordially invite all LS-DYNA users to the 16th LS-DYNA Forum in Bamberg, Germany. The forum will take place on October 11 and 12. Like last year it will be a hybrid event. The online conference will take place on October 12 and 13.

A special feature of the forum is that speakers can present on site in Bamberg in English or in German. Also new is that you can optionally submit your abstract for the Ansys "Level up 3.0" online conference (presentation language: English). To do this, simply click on the corresponding box when submitting. More information about the virtual conference can be found here or on the official Ansys conference website.

A full paper is not required for the Forum. However, we ask that you prepare a two-page abstract (extended abstract) and send it to us by September 2, 2022 (short abstract until June 24, 2022).

We hope to have aroused your interest and look forward to receiving numerous presentation submissions and registrations.

Call for Papers


We kindly ask presenters to record their presentation in English again in advance and make it available to us. In this way, we can ensure the realization of the online conference and make the presentation available to an international audience of experts.

All further information for presenters can be found here

Please note: The event on site in Bamberg may be cancelled at short notice due to the Corona situation. In this case, the conference will take place online only. Registrations for the on-site conference will then be converted to online registrations.
