Preparation of papers

Please use the following templates for the creation of papers (same as for the 11th International Modelica Conference). There are templates available for MS Word and LaTex.

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. 

Submissions process

The paper in PDF format should be submitted to through 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 the following document(s):

  • 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. Name it according to the first authors last name with "_CR" as a suffix (e.g. "hirano_CR.pdf").
  • One page abstract with first authors laste name and "_AB" as suffix (e.g. "hirano_AB.pdf").
