The best and the second best application libraries will be awarded with awards of EUR 500 and EUR 250 respectively. With the exception of members from organizations that decide on the library award, everyone can apply for this award.
Libraries are evaluated according to the following criteria:
- How useful is the library for the Modelica community, especially for industrial applications?
- Basic design principle of the library (e.g. physical components are modeled in a declarative way and there are no un-physical restrictions how components can be connected together).
- Completeness and extent of the library (small or large library, examples).
- Usage of the library (component documentation, users guide, parameter menus, etc.)
Accepted libraries will be included on the conference stick and linked from the Modelica web site.

At the Modelica conference, several tutorials and workshops will take place in parallel. Each tutorial/workshop will last for up to 3 hours and usually includes a "hands-on-experience" session with a Modelica simulation tool (participants are expected to bring their own laptop; the presenter will provide the Modelica and/or FMI simulation tool). Tutorials/Wokshops are free for the participants. Since only a limited number of tutorials/workshops can be held in parallel, please contact us as soon as possible at email@example.com, providing title, presenter(s), and an abstract of the tutorial (this information will be provided in the conference program and on the conference web page).
Decision about the acceptance of tutorials/workshops will be based upon Modelica/FMI relevance of the content and on the time of application. Please note that the tutorials/workshops on Monday are not intended to be product presentations. Such presentations are referred to the vendor session on Monday afternoon. The tutorial/workshop session serves a different purpose which is to especially to demonstrate and educate how to solve problems with Modelica and FMI. Of course this may involve the application of a certain tool but the modeling work or problem analysis shall be the focus point of the tutorial/workshop.
