The American Modelica Conference
Dallas, October 26-28, 2022

The American Modelica Conference 2022 will be a hybrid conference event, the first opportuntity since the 2019 conference to meet your Modelica colleagues in person, and can also be attended remotely via streaming. The conference will take place at the University of Texas in Dallas at the Davidson-Gundy Alumni Center October 26–28, 2022. It is organized by NAMUG, the North American Modelica Users Group in cooperation with the Modelica Association. Join us in person in Dallas or from the comfort of your own home. The ability to watch streamed talks from the conference virtually will be provided for a reduced virtual conference admission fee.

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 other continents 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 in Dallas. As a first for a Modelica conference, we are planning to organize a Modelica-oriented job fair at the in-person event in Dallas that gives a unique opportunity for employers, students about to graduate, and Modelica practitioners to get to know each other. More details will be forthcoming at this site as the conference date comes closer.

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, buildings and district energy systems, hardware-in-the-loop simulations and embedded control systems. The Functional Mock-up 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:

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:

Call for papers, user presentations and tutorials
