Exhibition (new)

There will be a central exhibition area outside the presentation rooms. Standard size exhibition areas (4 m2) are free of charge (coupled to a workshop participant; max. one exhibition area per workshop participant). Each exhibitor will have the opportunity to present their exhibition briefly in a plenary session. We only have a limited number of exhibitors available. Please contact us in advance. For special requests such as special equipment and larger exhibition stand size please contact .


The workshops are concerned with, but not limited to, the following themes:

MODPROD workshop

  • Cyber-physical system development approaches
  • Hardware modeling (electrical, hydraulic, multi-body systems…)
  • Software modeling
  • Meta-modeling (Modelica, UML, SysML…)
  • Methods and standards for co-modeling and co-simulation (FMI, SSP, DCP…)
  • Design optimization and analysis
  • Verification and validation
  • Real-time and hardware-in-the-loop simulation
  • Internet of things and embedded systems modelling
  • Modeling and simulation tools
  • Experiences of application of model-based product development
  • Architecting and architecture
  • Systems integration
  • Conceptual design and analysis
  • Machine learning and systems development
  • Industry 4.0
  • Modularized systems development

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
  • FMI-based simulation, co-simulation and OMSimulator
  • Visualization and 3D animation


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 2020, use

 For submission to OpenModelica 2020, use

Important Dates

Submission deadline: November 17 December 1, 2019

Acceptance notification: December 1 December 15, 2019


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 Cyber-Physical 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. OMSimulator for FMI based modeling and simulation, ModelicaML (UML-Modelica integration), OMOptim, OMPython, OMJulia, OMDebugger, for industrial and academic usage.
