 The 13th International Modelica Conference will be held at OTH Regensburg, Germany, March 4–6, 2019. It is organized by OTH Regensburg / Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, in cooperation with the Modelica Association.


About the Conference

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. 

In addition to 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 previous Modelica conference in 2017 in Prague, Czech Republic, was attended by more than 400 participants from all over the world, and we would like to welcome even more participants to this conference.

Conference Venue

The conference will take place at Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule (Eastbavarian Technical University) Regensburg near the center of Regensburg, only 30 minutes to walk from the historical centre of Regensburg.


Venue Address
OTH Regensburg
Seybothstr. 2
93053 Regensburg

Scope of the Conference

Modelica is a freely available, equation-based, object-oriented language for convenient and efficient modeling of complex, multidomain cyber-physical systems described by ordinary differential, difference and algebraic equations. 

The Modelica language and the companion Modelica Standard Library have been utilized in demanding industrial applications, including full vehicle dynamics, power systems, robotics, hardware-in-the-loop simulations and embedded control systems.

The Functional Mockup Interface (FMI) is an open standard for the tool-independent exchange of models and for co-simulation. 

It is supported by many Modelica and non-Modelica tools and is the key to utilizing Modelica models in non-Modelica environments. The Modelica conference will bring together people using Modelica and/or FMI for modeling, simulation, and control applications, Modelica language designers, Modelica and/or FMI tool vendors and Modelica library developers. 

The Modelica Conference provide Modelica users the opportunity to stay informed about the latest language, library, and tool developments, and to get in touch with people working on similar modeling problems. The conference will cover topics such as the following:

• 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


Call for Papers (not open yet)

Papers can be submitted for full presentation or for poster presentation. In addition, new free Modelica libraries can be introduced to the public. The Modelica Free Library Award will be given to the best and second best free libraries submitted for review. Modelica Association members (excluding selection committee members) can apply for this award too.

Please see the Call-for-Papers page for further information about the submission and/or application process and the submission templates. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by the Conference Program Committee (3 reviews per paper).

The conference proceedings will be published electronically. After the conference, the proceedings will be available online. Authors keep the copyright for their papers and just provide non-exclusive publication rights to the Modelica Association.


Call for Tutorials (not open yet), Vendor Session (not open yet), Exhibitors and Sponsors

During the first day of the Conference, tutorials and vendor session will be held.

A commercial exhibition will also be arranged in conjunction to the conference. The commercial exhibition will be integrated with the session halls, poster exhibition and the catering services and will thus be an excellent exhibition window towards the expected 400-500 delegates. The exhibition will be open during conference hours. There are also various options to sponsor the conference.

For more information, please check the Other Calls page. More information to the Calls for vendor session, tutorial/workshop, and sponsoring opportunities will be given soon.

FMI User Meeting

During the tutorial session on the first day of the conference, the FMI User Meeting will be held. If you are insterested, you can check the FMI User Meeting Agenda.
