3DEXPERIENCE World 2021 Call For Papers is Now Open

As many of you know  3DEXPERIENCE World 2021 will be an international virtual event.  While some of you may be sad that we don’t get to meet face-to-face, we also have a tremendous opportunity to extend our SOLIDWORKS user connection globally – with no physical limits!  Imagine the vast audience you can reach should you choose to submit a paper for our exciting annual user conference that will be held February 8-11, 2021.

We invite you to think about one or more subjects you feel you could confidently share with your fellow SOLIDWORKS user.  What skill have you learned that you would like to pass on?  What workflow have you put together that could benefit others?  What innovative, out-of-the-box processes have taken your company to the next level?  This isn’t the time to be humble or shy – we want to hear from you!

We are looking for high-energy, clear and concise presenters for 3DEXPERIENCE World 2021 who aim to uplift, educate and inspire their audience.  Realizing that attention spans run shorter online, we are keeping our virtual sessions to 45 minutes with 30 minutes of pre-recorded content (except for the live panels) followed by 15 minutes of live Q&A.  All accepted presenters will need to submit their videos by January 8. We’ll provide plenty of help and info along the way. Accepted presenters will also need to be available at their preassigned timeslot for their live questions and answers during the event. We will also have a few surprises for you if your presentation is accepted so keep reading.

What’s in it for you?  

Of course, there is always bragging rights and a nice addition to your resume, but since we do realize that much goes into preparing and recording a great class – we wanted to do something extra special for you!  Since there is no charge to attend 3DEXPERIENCE World 2021, the usual compensation of a free pass didn’t sound like a fair trade this year.  Consequently, we are prepared to offer you a transferable pass to 3DEXPERIENCE World 2022 (at which time we fully expect to be back to our live, in-person event).  In addition to this – we will grant you our VIP “The Works” pass for 3DEXPERIENCE 2021, a pass that allows you to get into special events and sessions not available to the general public. Presenters will also get a free 3DEXPERIENCE World sweatshirt!


We invite you to submit a proposal at the below link:

Submit a Proposal

The CFP site closes on November 9th, which is right around the corner so get those proposals in as soon as possible.  We want to hear from you! If your presentation is accepted, you will receive the following as a token of gratitude:

  • VIP access to 3DEXPERIENCE World 2021
  • 3DEXPERIENCE World 2021 sweatshirt
  • Free transferable pass to 3DEXPERIENCE World 2022

Let’s make this the best 3DEXPERIENCE World ever!
