Call for Papers: American Modelica Conference 2018

Call for Papers: American Modelica Conference 2018

Dear RPI Control Colleagues,

it is a pleasure for me to invite you to submit a paper and participate to the forthcoming American Modelica Conference 2018 , which will be held in Cambridge, near Boston on 9-10 October 2018. The deadline for the submission of papers is May 1st, 2018, and the deadline for the submission of extended abstract for a presentation-only track is June 1st, 2018. For more details, please check the online  Call for papers.

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.

The Modelica conference will bring together people using Modelica and/or FMI for modeling, simulation, and control applications, Modelica language designers, Modelica and/or FMI tool vendors and Modelica library developers. It 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 is planned for about 150 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 and energy systems applications

§  Mechatronics and robotics applications

§  Other industrial applications, such as electric drives, power systems, aerospace, etc.

§  Real-time and hardware-in-the-loop simulation

§  Simulation and code generation for embedded control systems

§  Applications of Modelica for optimization and optimal control

§  Modelica modeling, simulation and design tools

§  Symbolic algorithms and numerical methods for model transformation and simulation

§  New features for future Modelica versions

§  Modelica in other application areas (mathematical programming, databases etc.)

§  Modelica for teaching and education

§  New features of future FMI versions

§  FMI in Modelica and non-Modelica applications and tools

In addition, the conference will include:

§  Modelica tutorials for different levels of modeling experience

§  Vendors’ presentations of commercial and free Modelica tools

§  Vendors' exhibition


Call for Papers
You are encouraged to submit a full paper of at least 4 pages with a maximum of 10 pages. The full paper in PDF format should be submitted to the Conference Management System. Please see Author's Guide for further information. The final paper has to be submitted together with a one-page abstract.

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

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=modelica2018us

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. Furthermore, there is the option to attach a .zip file to your paper. In this way, you can provide example models that correspond to your paper.

The authors of the 10% top papers submitted to the conference will be invited to submit an extended version after the Conference, for inclusion in a special issue of an open-access, ISI-referenced journal. Please note that the extended papers will undergo a full peer-review process which is independent of the one of the Modelica Conference.

Call for Presentations
Industrial or academic Modelica Users can alternatively also submit an extended abstract for a presentation-only contribution, as it has been done for Modelica Users' meetings by NAMUG. The abstract will be peer-reviewed by experts in the field, but no paper will be published. These presentations will be selected based on the expected interest of other Modelica users. Note that slots for presentations without a paper submission will be limited, so please submit early!

Please use also the EasyChair system for submitting an extended abstract for a presentation-only industry session at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=modelica2018us.
