International Multibody Dynamics Conference 2023

+ + + C​all for presentations - abstract submission deadline: 30 June 2023 + + +

With the continued increase in product complexity, Multibody Dynamics Simulation (MBDS) has become a key discipline thanks to its ability to virtually test complex system designs composed of many components and with various types of physical forces acting on them. Successful optimal design is not limited to meeting functional requirements, but also extends to meeting tighter regulations, faster time-to-market and budgetary expectations, and customer expectations for better products.

In order to meet those challenges, MBDS has been evolving in two opposite, but highly complementary directions. On one side, models with higher fidelity enable the representation of more and more complex behavior of physical systems. On the other side, the use of reduced order models, which are now capable of running real time analyses, has opened the door to new technologies like model in the loop, software in the loop, hardware in the loop, and so on, making early testing of systems possible by enabling the interaction of virtual components with real hardware.

We are pleased to announce the NAFEMS Multibody Dynamics Conference 2023 , the only international conference devoted to MBDS. The conference will provide an overview of state-of-the-art-methods for the simulation and design of complex systems, mainly within the context of industrial applications and CAE.

The conference brings together researchers, developers, teachers, and users of multibody dynamics simulation methods to present new results, exchange ideas and discuss the challenges. Featuring keynotes, exhibits and breakout sessions, it is an excellent opportunity to connect with other practitioners in the field.

Call for Presentations

  • In the first instance, abstracts of 300-600 words should be submitted for consideration by 30 June 2023 by e-mail to
  • Abstracts must be clearly marked with presentation title, author‘s name, organisation, address, phone numbers and email address.
  • Authors whose abstracts are accepted will be asked to prepare an extended abstract (typically 2-4 pages) and a Power Point presentation - full papers are not required.
  • NAFEMS prides itself on its independence and neutrality so we kindly request that submissions avoid any overt commercialism.
  • Papers dealing with Multibody Dynamics – Multiphysics co-simulation will be presented during a common session organised in collaboration with the NAFEMS Multiphysics Working Group.
