SANTA CLARA, CA—JULY 29, 2008—NVIDIA today announced that Bernard Charlès, president and CEO of Dassault Systèmes, will speak at NVISION® 08. Mr. Charlès is a highly-regarded pioneer in the field of industrial design and visual computing. Companies around the world use technology from Dassault Systèmes to digitally design, simulate, and manage products from conception through production to maintenance. Speaking on Tuesday, August 26, in San Jose, California, Mr. Charlès will discuss megatrends in 3D design.

"It is an honor to have Bernard join us at NVISION 08," said Jen-Hsun Huang, president and CEO, NVIDIA. “Dassault Systèmes’ innovative work in modern 3D design and simulation is helping to solve complex problems across a range of industries -- from automotive to aerospace to life sciences -- while making 3D tools available to more and more people. I look forward to hearing Bernard’s insights into ‘what’s next’ for creative professionals and end-user consumers.”

Since becoming president of Dassault Systèmes in 1995, Bernard Charlès has expanded the company's reach beyond its roots in 3D computer-aided design (CAD) to encompass the more strategic concept of product lifecycle management (PLM). In particular, Mr. Charlès has been instrumental in the aviation industry’s transition to designing aircraft digitally, without physical prototyping. Mr. Charlès is also known for his contribution on a wide array of issues related to high-tech, including R&D, innovation, intellectual property, science, and education.
