2021 HVE Forum 
February 22, 2021 through March 3, 2021


As the COVID 19 Virus continues to hold us hostage and homebound, EDC is determined to continue to help our Customers as much as possible.  To help with the training and education of our software, we are remodeling the 2021 HVE Forum to meet the needs of our customers.  We have made some adjustments to the Forum class schedule with hopes to give all that attend a positive learning experience.

This year the 2021 HVE Forum will be held virtually the weeks of February 22nd through March 3rd, 2021.  Those registering for the Forum will be able to select the classes/sessions that they wish to attend. 

The cost to attend is $100 per session or attend all sessions for $500.  Monday, March 1st is a free session, and all are invited to participate. 


Each day there will be up to 3 class options during the session (see schedule).

Sessions will run for 4 hours beginning at 10 am PT/1 pm ET and ending at 2 pm PT/5 pm ET

The Virtual 2021 HVE Forum Registration Form can be found here:


It is recommended that attendees have a dual screen setup or multiple computers to be able to follow along in HVE with the instructor if desired.  It may also be beneficial for an instructor to view an attendee’s screen during the class to address any questions or issues that arise.   

We are excited and hope to see you at the Forum!

Here's what attendees to previous HVE Forums have had to say -

"I attended last year’s HVE Forum in Austin.  The forum is a great opportunity for new and experienced HVE users to learn valuable skills from the EDC software developers and power users.  Good food, drinks, and networking opportunities were abundant.  I highly recommend the event.  It is a great value and a lot of fun." - Daniel Honeycutt, ESi            

"The opportunity to review and connect with HVE Users as well as EDC staff is extremely valuable. Ask questions and invest the time to go through any exercises. You will be rewarded for your efforts." - Jeffrey Cleary, Pro Analysis, Inc.

"As the years have gone by, I have found greater and more varied uses for HVE, especially SIMON and DyMESH. What I used to do by hand can now be done with greater accuracy and ease by HVE. I continue to be impressed by the sustained effort and support of the EDC Staff. Keep up the development EDC. You provide a product more valuable than it's cost." - Cline Young

"I have previously attended the 1997, 2002, 2005 & 2009 Forums. There have been quite a number of changes in hardware and the software over the last 15 years. However, at every Forum I have attended I have walked away with an abundance of knowledge. The first day of this year's Forum [2012], the Advanced HVE Part I and Part II workshop was worth the tuition alone. The rest of the week was a bonus from Monday on!"- Tim Tuttle

"Every user of HVE should attend the HVE Forums. There are always gems to be picked up." - Dr. William Blythe

"As a new user, I was unfamiliar with HVE. I attended these workshops to get an understanding of how to properly navigate the software. Having attended the full week of hands-on intro workshops, I am now comfortable navigating the software, and in fact, I now see even greater potential for the use of the software in what we do." - Kevin Tully

"The Forum was an excellent opportunity to learn from the creators of HVE and interact with some of the most knowledgeable users in the field." - Roman Beck

"As an HVE-2D user, I enjoyed the open discussions during the Forum which provided an opportunity to learn from the instructor and fellow classmates." - Heath Spivey
