Modelica Announces Upcoming Conference

Modelica announces its upcoming American Modelica Conference 2018, to be held in Boston, MA, October 9-10, 2018.  The conference is a unique opportunity for you to get in contact with the system simulation community around the Modelica and FMI system modeling and simulation standards. The conference will feature a total of 40 paper and user presentations along with keynote great speakers, Procter & Gamble’s John McKibben, and Hilding Elmqvist of Mogram AB.

Information & Registration
Those interested in attending should register now to take advantage of the early-bird pricing – ending on August 20th. Below are the links to the registration, the preliminary program, and general information.

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 companion Modelica Standard Library has been utilized in demanding industrial applications, including full vehicle dynamics, power systems, robotics, hardware-in-the-loop simulations and embedded control systems with nonlinear Modelica models.

The Functional Mockup Interface (FMI) is a freely available 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 utilize Modelica models in non-Modelica environments.

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

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

The conference will bring together people using Modelica and/or other Modelica Association standards for modeling, simulation, and control applications, Modelica language designers, tool vendors and library developers. It provides users an 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 following topics will be covered at the conference:

In addition, the conference will include:

Conference Chairs: Hubertus Tummescheit, Michael Tiller, Luigi Vanfretti
