Guidelines for preparing, submitting and presenting papers for the American Modelica Conference

Submissions process

Papers, abstracts and presentations can be submitted via the EasyChair conference management system:

There, you can also read your reviews and hand in the final paper after the reviewing process has taken place. In order to submit a paper, you need to have an EasyChair account. Simply follow the provided instructions to create an account. The same account can be used for several conferences over several years.

Once you have logged in, you can upload your contribution in the section: "New submissions". Simply follow the instructions.

The paper submission form includes the option to mark suitable topics for your paper. Please use this feature since it helps us to find suitable reviewers for your paper.

Preparation of full papers

Please use these templates for the creation of full papers. Templates are available for MS Word and LaTex. In order to have significant substance for the review process, we ask authors to submit a draft paper of at least 4 pages! The paper has to contain at least preliminary results and cannot merely be an abstract promising future result. 

Authors using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS might get papers missing the section numbers, due to a bug in the LaTeX distribution of the titlesec package. If that happens, please update the template, as the latest version provides a workaround.

Please make sure that your submission has been created according to the Modelica Formatting Guidelines. You may use these guidelines also if you do not want to use one of the templates. 

For the final submission, there will also be the possibility to submit Modelica example model files that correspond to your publication. These files will then be attached to your paper in the electronic proceedings.  

Final Paper Submission

Additionally to your paper, you have to submit also the following document(s):

  • Additionally to your paper, you should also submit a copyright agreement that gives the Modelica Association the non-exclusive right to publish your paper. Fill out this form, add the signature of the main author, scan it and attach the corresponding pdf-file to your submission. Use the file name "copyrightLicense.pdf".

The Easychair management system currently only allows submitting one additional file beside your paper. In case that you are submitting other material, for example, a library or examples, add the copyright agreement and all other material in one zip-file and submit this zip-file as "attachment".

In case you have any problems, send an email to

User presentations

Preparation of one-page-abstracts

Authors of regular papers and user presentations, as well as organizations presenting their tool in the tool presentation sessions, are all required to submit a one-page abstract of their presentation as a PDF file.

Here are the corresponding templates:

Please include the abstract as an attachment to your final submission (as described above)
