American Modelica Conference 2024

The American Modelica Conference 2024 will be an in-person conference event, with an option to watch presentations streamed online for a reduced conference admission fee. The conference will take place at the University of Connecticut in Storrs in the Innovation Partnership Building from October 14–16, 2024. It is organized by NAMUG, the North American Modelica Users Group, in cooperation with the Modelica Association. Join us in person in Storrs or from the comfort of your own home.

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 processes and tools for the modeling of complex physical and cyber-physical systems as applied to 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 2022 was also streamed, giving many Modelicans in Europe the opportunity to watch presentations on the latest updates on Modelica-related research and innovation. In this version of the conference, we want to combine the ease of attendance by remote participants from other continents with the stimulating environment of an in person event with lively discussions in the breaks and an in-person conference dinner! Please note that full paper presentations are required to be in person, while industrial user presentations can be given remotely.

Workshops and Tutorials will be given on the afternoon of October 14th 2024, the keynotes, paper presentations and other parts of the program will be on October 15th and 16th.

In building on the successes of the previous American Modelica conference, we are also happy to announce a Student Best Paper competition. Additional details are available in the call for papers.

Our Sponsors

The American Modelica Conference 2024 relies heavily on sponsors to maintain the affordability of the ticket prices. If you are interested in sponsoring the conference, please check out the conditions at in our call for sponsors and contact us as soon as possible at modelicaNA2024@groups.liu.se. You can directly buy a sponsorship ticket at Eventbrite.

Registration and Accomodation

Registration is now open at Eventbrite. Please register soon to make planning easy for us. Early Bird tickets will be available until August 10th. If you need a hotel for the conference, we recommend the Graduate Hotel on the UCONN campus in waking distance to the conferene venue. You can reserve a room for a discounted room rate through this link. Other hotels are available in the vicinity, but are in 10-15 minutes of driving distance from the conference.

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 a variety of 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:

These 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 for modeling, simulation, and control applications, such as Modelica language designers, tool vendors and library developers. The Modelica Conference provides Modelica users with 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:

Sponsorship opportunities

The American Modelica conference will be your opportunity to meet your customers again in a personal setting, at a great location. Please stay tuned for details about our sponsorship opportunities, we will post them here in the near future. Note that all sponsors will have the opportunity to exhibit at the conference, and that we don’t offer a separate way to exhibit at the conference.
