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. All contributions are peer-reviewed and selected by the Program Committee. In addition to traditional 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 last Modelica conference in 2012 was visited by 350 participants from all over the world, and we expect a similar size at this conference.
When: Mar 10, 2014 01:00 PM to Mar 12, 2014 04:00 PM
Dr. Clas Jacobson Chief Scientist, United Technologies Systems & Controls Engineering
Dr. Jacobson is Chief Scientist for the United Technologies Systems & Controls Engineering (UTSCE) organization. In this role he works with the UTC business units to ensure capability in systems engineering and controls is available for product development. Prior to his role as Chief Scientist for UTSCE he worked as the Chief Scientist, Controls for UTC and before that at the United Technologies Research Center (UTRC) in management and technical positions since 1995. Dr. Jacobson received his Ph.D degree in electrical engineering in 1986 from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He was an Associate Professor at Northeastern University in Boston from 1986-1995.
Dr. Hilding Elmqvist, CTO Systems, Dassault Systèmes
Elmqvist’s Ph.D. thesis in 1978 from the Department of Automatic Control, Lund Institute of Technology contains the design of a novel object-oriented and equation based modelling language, Dymola, and algorithms for symbolic model manipulation. In 1992, Elmqvist founded Dynasim AB (since 2006 part of Dassault Systèmes) and in 1996 he took the initiative to organize the international effort to design the next generation object-oriented language for physical modelling, Modelica. Elmqvist is the chief architect of the Multi-Engineering Modelling and Simulation software for Modelica used in Dymola Product Line and CATIA Systems DBM. He is also responsible for Technology within the board of Modelica Association.
The conference will be held on the Campus of the Faculty of Engineering of Lund University. The Campus is located directly to the East of the center of Lund, about 20 minutes walking distance from Lund central station.
