Call for Papers

You are encouraged to submit a full paper of at least 4 pages with a maximum of 10 pages, on the following topics:

  • Multi-engineering modeling and simulation with free and commercial Modelica libraries (mechanics, electrical, hydraulics, thermal, fluid, media, chemical, building, automotive, aircraft, ...)
  • Automotive applications
  • Thermodynamic and energy systems applications
  • Mechatronics and robotics applications
  • Medicine and biology applications
  • Other industrial applications, such as electric drives, power systems, aerospace, etc.
  • Large-scale system modelling
  • Real-time and hardware-in-the-loop simulation
  • Simulation and code generation for embedded control systems
  • Simulation acceleration by use of many CPU cores or GPU cores
  • Applications of Modelica for optimization and optimal control
  • Modelica modeling, simulation and design tools
  • Symbolic algorithms and numerical methods for model transformation and simulation
  • Discrete modeling techniques − FEM, CFD, DEM (Discrete Element Method), ...
  • New features of the Modelica language and of FMI
  • Experimental language designs and implementations related to Modelica
  • Modelica in other application areas (mathematical programming, databases etc.)
  • Modelica for teaching and education
  • FMI in Modelica and non-Modelica applications and tools


The full paper in PDF format should be submitted to through the EasyChair Conference Management System. Please see the Author's Guide for further information.

The conference proceedings will be published by the Modelica Association on its website and by Linköping University Electronic Press. Each paper will be individually referenced by a DOI.

The authors of the 10% top papers submitted to the conference will be invited to submit an extended version after the Conference, for inclusion in a special issue of an open-access, ISI-referenced journal. Please note that the extended papers will undergo a full peer-review process which is independent from the one of the Modelica Conference.

Important dates:

January 22, 2017 Submission of full papers
February 17, 2017 Notification of acceptance
April 1, 2017 Submission of final papers

Call for Libraries

You are encouraged to submit a free Modelica application library in Modelica source code form. The library should be sent to the program chairs ( and provided under the Modelica License 2. Please submit also a corresponding paper to the conference. If the paper gets accepted, you can present your library at the conference and you can compete for the library award.

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.

January 22, 2016 Submission of full libraries
February 17, 2017 Notification of acceptance
April 1, 2017 Submission of final libraries
May 17, 2017 Library award ceremony
