  • Electrical/hydraulics modeling

OpenModelica Annual Workshop

  • Applications of OpenModelica
  • Modelica Libraries with OpenModelica
  • Industrial Use Cases
  • OpenModelica in Teaching
  • OpenModelica tool developments
  • Solver issues in OpenModelica
  • Meta modeling and hardware/software modeling
  • Code generation in OpenModelica
  • Parallel compilation and execution
  • Model-based optimization


Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit draft presentations, abstracts, or full paper drafts for consideration by the organizing committee. Publication at this event does not prevent future publication at scientific conferences. The submission can be new or recently published work.

The submission can be an abstract (can be short) and (optional but encouraged) a .pdf file, to be submitted at:

For submission to MODPROD 2018, use

For submission to OpenModelica 2018, use

Important Dates

Submission deadline: November 19, 2017

Acceptance notification: December 1, 2017


The final version of the presentation, delivered by the presenter at the workshop, will be put on the web. Papers will not be published here. The authors are free to publish paper versions of their work elsewhere, in conferences or journals. The language of the workshops is English.

Supporting organizations

The Center for Model-based Product Development (MODPROD) is an inter-disciplinary research center at Linköping University. It revolves around model-based tools and methods for cyber-physical systems, mechanical systems, electronic systems and software, and unified approaches for model-based design. This workshop brings together expertise in these fields to discuss state of the art and the way ahead.

The Open Source Modelica Consortium (OSMC) is a non-profit organization supporting the development of the OpenModelica Open-Source implementation of Modelica and related tools, e.g. ModelicaML (UML-Modelica integration), OMOptim, OMPython, OMDebugger, OM FMI tooling, for industrial and academic usage.
