We would like to welcome you to Prague for the 12th international Modelica Conference. The conference was organized by the Modelica Association in cooperation with the Czech Society for Informatics and Cybernetics and Politecnico di Milano.

Modelica is not only a unique modeling language, which is widely used in numerous branches of industry and also in research and science, but most of all it is an immensely effective tool for complex simulations in the automotive industry, building energy management, aerospace and many other fields of engineering.

The program of the conference is interesting not only for the participants, who already use Modelica, but also for those who would like to be introduced to the possibilities of this new modern odeling language by our numerous tutorials. The usage of the language is facilitated by Modelica libraries focused on diverse fields. Consequently, an important part of the conference is the traditional Library Award Announcement.

We welcome you to Prague, the city of many historic sites, culture and also the music festival Prague Spring, taking place in Prague this week.

Jirí Kofránek
Conference Chair


The International Modelica Conference is the most important place for the Modelica and FMI communities to meet, exchange ideas and advance the state of the art in object-oriented modelling.

This year we received 129 paper submissions for the scientific program. After a thorough peer review process by the International Program Committee, 83 were accepted for full oral presentation and 19 for poster presentation, with authors coming from 18 different countries in Europe, Asia, America, and Oceania. The scientific program is completed by two distinguished keynote talks, one from industry and one from academia.

The conference also hosts nine tutorials, the FMI User Meeting, as well as vendor presentations and a commercial exhibition.

I warmly welcome you to the 12th International Modelica Conference and I wish you a successful, pleasant, and rewarding stay in Prague!
