About this event

Call for Papers Deadline: Extended to May 23rd

About the Conference

The Modelica Conference is the main event for users, library developers, tool vendors and language designers to share their knowledge and learn about the latest scientific and industrial progress related to Modelica, FMI, SSP, eFMI and DCP. The program will cover modeling of complex physical and cyber-physical systems, as well as tools, for a wide range of research and industrial applications.

In addition to paper presentations, the conference features several Modelica tutorials for beginners and advanced users, as well as industrial user presentations, vendor sessions, and an exhibition. The previous American Modelica conference in 2020 was fully online, saw a record number of registrations compared to in-person events, so this time we want to combine the ease of attendance by remote participants from Europe, Asia and further away in the Americas with the fun of a real, in person event with lively discussions in the breaks and an in-person conference dinner!

We are looking forward to seeing you.

Scope of the Conference

Modelica is a freely available, equation-based, object-oriented language for convenient and efficient modeling of complex, multi-domain cyber-physical systems described by ordinary differential, difference and algebraic equations. The Modelica language and the companion Modelica Standard Library have been utilized in demanding industrial applications, including full vehicle dynamics, power systems, robotics, hardware-in-the-loop simulations and embedded control systems. The Functional Mockup Interface (FMI) is an open standard for the tool-independent exchange of models and for co-simulation. It is supported by many Modelica and non-Modelica tools and is the key to utilizing Modelica models in non-Modelica environments.

Development in the Modelica Association is organized in Modelica Association Projects:

  • LANG - Modelica Language
  • LIB - Modelica Libraries
  • FMI - Functional Mockup Interface
  • eFMI - Functional Mockup Interface for embedded systems
  • SSP - System Structure and Parameterization of Components for Virtual System Design
  • DCP - Distributed Co-Simulation Protocol

The projects collaborate to design and maintain a set of coordinated standards for modeling and simulation of complex physical systems.

The Modelica conference will bring together people using Modelica and/or other Modelica Association standards modeling, simulation, and control applications, Modelica language designers, tool vendors and library developers. The Modelica Conference provides Modelica users the opportunity to stay informed about the latest language, library, and tool developments, and to get in touch with people working on similar modeling problems. The conference will cover topics such as the following:

Multi-engineering modeling and simulation with free and commercial Modelica libraries (mechanics, electrical, hydraulics, thermal, fluid, media, chemical, building, automotive, aircraft, …)

  • Automotive applications
  • Thermodynamic and energy systems applications
  • Mechatronics and robotics applications
  • Medicine and biology applications
  • Other industrial applications, such as electric drives, power systems, aerospace, etc.
  • Large-scale system modeling
  • Real-time and hardware-in-the-loop simulation
  • Simulation and code generation for embedded control systems
  • Simulation acceleration by use of many CPU cores or GPU cores
  • Applications of Modelica for optimization and optimal control
  • Modelica modeling, simulation and design tools
  • Symbolic algorithms and numerical methods for model transformation and simulation
  • Discrete modeling techniques − FEM, CFD, DEM (Discrete Element Method), …
  • New features of the Modelica language and of FMI
  • Experimental language designs and implementations related to Modelica
  • Modelica in other application areas (mathematical programming, databases etc.)
  • Modelica for teaching and education
  • FMI in Modelica and non-Modelica applications and tools
