2014 North America Modelica Users' Group Meeting

Dates: October 13-14, 2014

Location: Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta, GA) 

Explore two new emerging standards for the modeling and simulation of complex dynamic systems: Modelica® & FMI

Mechatronics projects are increasing in complexity and new design and verification methods are necessary to explore multi-discipline system robustness and ensure adherence to established requirements and specifications. As a result of cross-industry collaboration, Modelica® and FMI (Functional Mock-up Interface) were identified as the two emerging and open standards that allow for multi-vendor and multi-tool collaboration in addressing complex system behavioral modeling tasks. Based upon an open and common platform and a standardized modeling language, these two emerging standards are driving the adoption of reusable multi-discipline engineering system models.

Free Modelica and FMI Training

During this conference, participants will be provided with free Modelica and FMI tutorials, which will be very useful for anyone who is evaluating, or planning to evaluate, this powerful dynamic simulation solution.

About the North America Modelica® Users’ Group

"The North America Modelica® Users’ Group is a tool-neutral organization, founded to support users promote the use of Modelica for engineering model development in North America. The goal of the group is to provide a forum for sharing ideas from the global Modelica community, give feedback for further development, and to discuss and resolve model-development issues that may be specific to North America.

Membership is free and open to all Modelica users and engineering model developers who are interested in finding out more about the language and community."  - The North America Modelica® Users' Group
