Guidelines for preparing, submitting and presenting papers for the Modelica Conference

Preparation of full papers

Please use these templates for the creation of full papers. Templates are available for MS Word and LaTex.

Authors using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS might get papers missing the section numbers, due to a bug in the LaTeX distribution of the titlesec packagee. If that happens, please update the template, as the latest version provides a workaround.

Please make sure that your submission has been created according to the Modelica Formatting Guidelines. You may use these guidelines also if you do not want to use one of the templates. 

For the final submission, there will also be the possibility to submit Modelica example model files that correspond to your publication. These files will then be attached to your paper in the electronic proceedings.  

Submissions process

Papers should be submitted via the EasyChair conference management system:

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, so if you have already participated in a Modelica conference you might already have a valid account.

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.

Final Paper Submission

Additionally to your paper, you should also submit a copyright agreement that gives the Modelica Association the non-exclusive right to publish your paper. Fill out this form, add the signature of the main author, scan it and attach the corresponding pdf-file to your submission. Use the file name "copyrightLicense.pdf".
