Abstract. The vision of Isogeometric Analysis (IGA) was first presented in a paper published October 1, 2005 [1]. Since then it has become a focus of research within both the fields of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computer Aided Design (CAD) and has become a mainstream analysis methodology and provided a new paradigm for geometric design [2-4]. The key concept utilized in the technical approach is the development of a new foundation for FEA, based on rich geometric descriptions originating in CAD, more tightly integrating design and analysis. Industrial applications and commercial software developments have expanded recently. In this presentation, I will describe the origins of IGA, its status, recent progress, and areas of current activity.
