- The further development of the FMI (Functional Mockup Interface) standard is performed in a MAP. A draft version of FMI 2.0 will be available before the conference. An overview of this new version is given in a conference paper. In two sessions; applications and tool support for FMI are presented and discussed.
- Since July; the Modelica Association provides an open source FMI compliance checker for FMI 1.0 at https://svn.fmi-standard.org/fmi/trunk/Test_FMUs. Its purpose is to check exported FMUs for validity. The checker can also produce reference simulation results with a fixed step explicit Euler method. Shortly after FMI 2.0 is released; the compliance checker will also be available for FMI 2.0.
Finally; we want to acknowledge the support we received from the program board and program committee. We are grateful for the help by the Modelica Association and Monika Klauer from DLR. Last but not least; let us thank all authors for their contributions to these proceedings. We wish all participants an enjoyable and successful conference.
