Call for Papers

Modelica Conference 2008 at the University of Applied Sciences Bielefeld, Germany

Modelica FH Bielefeld

The Modelica Association and the University of Applied Sciences Bielefeld organize the 6th International Modelica Conference.

It will take place

March 3rd - 4th, 2008



at the University of Applied Sciences Bielefeld, Germany.

Modelica is a freely available, object-oriented language for convenient and efficient modeling and simulation of complex, multi-domain physical systems described by ordinary differential and algebraic equations. The comprehensive 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 Modelica conference will bring together people interested in Modelica, Modelica language designers, Modelica tool vendors and Modelica library developers. It provides Modelica users the opportunity to stay informed about the latest language and library developments and to get in touch with people working on similar modeling problems. The conference is planned for about 300 participants and will cover topics such as the following:

  • Multi-engineering modeling and simulation with Modelica
  • Free and commercial Modelica libraries
    (mechanics, electrical, hydraulics, thermal, fluid, media, chemical, building, automotive, aircraft, ...)
  • Automotive applications
  • Thermodynamic systems applications
  • Other industrial applications, such as electric drives, power systems, robotics, aerospace ...
  • Hardware-in-the-loop simulation and embedded control systems
  • Modelica modeling, simulation and design tools
  • Symbolic algorithms for model transformations
  • Modelica in other application areas (mathematical programming, databases etc.)
  • Modelica for teaching and education


In addition, the conference will include:

The registration page and accommodation/traveling information will be available soon.

Call for Libraries:

You are encouraged to submit a free Modelica application library in Modelica source code form. The best two application libraries will get an award of 500 and 250 Euro. The library should be sent to the program chair (modelica2008@modelica.org).
With the exception of the members of the Modelica Association and their respective organizations, everyone can apply for this award.

Libraries are evaluated according to the following criteria:

  • How useful is the library for the Modelica community, especially for industrial applications?
  • Basic design principle of the library (e.g. physical components are modeled in a declarative way and there are no un-physical restrictions how components can be connected together).
  • Comprehension of the library (small or large library, examples).
  • Usage of the library (component documentation, users guide, parameter menus, etc.).
Links to home pages of accepted libraries will be placed on the Modelica home page.
Accepted libraries will be included on the conference CD-ROM.

Important dates: Deadline:
Library submission Monday, November 5th, 2007
Acceptance notification Monday, November 26th, 2007
Final library submission Monday, January 14th, 2008
Library award ceremony Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

Call for Exhibitors:

During the conference developers and vendors have the chance to present their Modelica-related products and services, like:

  • Modeling, simulation and design tools
  • Modelica libraries
  • Consulting and engineering with Modelica
Since space is limited, please contact us as soon as possible at modelica2008@modelica.org stating also your needs for technical support.
Decision about the acceptance of exhibitors will be based upon Modelica relation of products and/or services and on the time of application.

Call for Tutorials:

At the Modelica conference, several tutorials will take place in parallel on Monday, March 3rd, in the morning. A tutorial will last for about 3 hours and includes usually a "hands-on-experience" session with a Modelica simulation tool (participants are expected to have a notebook; the presenter will provide the Modelica simulation tool). Tutorials are free for the participants. Hand-outs of the presenter can be printed by the Modelica conference organizers. Since only a limited number of tutorials can be held in parallel (up to 5), please contact us as soon as possible at modelica2008@modelica.org.
Decision about the acceptance of tutorials will be based upon Modelica relation of content and on the time of application.

Important dates: Deadline:
Tutorial application Monday, September 10th, 2007
Tutorial notification Monday, September 24th, 2007
Conference Monday, March 3rd -
Tuesday, March 4th, 2008
