 The 9th International Modelica Conference will be held at the Veranstaltungsforum Fürstenfeld (Fürstenfeld Convention Center) in Munich, Germany on September 3 - 5, 2012. It is organized by the Modelica Association and DLR - Robotics and Mechatronics Center.


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 and to the Functional Mockup Interface. 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. All contributions are peer-reviewed and selected by the Program Committee. In addition to traditional paper presentations and poster sessions, the conference features several Modelica tutorials for beginners and advanced users, as well as vendor presentations, and an exhibition. The last Modelica conference in 2011 was visited by 325 participants from 23 countries, and we expect a similar size at this conference.


We are looking forward to seeing you in Munich

Program Chairs
