Multibody Simulation Conference

Multibody Dynamics Simulation Conference

1​5 - 16 November 2023 | Munich-Taufkirchen, Germany

As product complexity increases on a continuous basis, Multibody Dynamics Simulation (MBDS) becomes a key discipline thanks to its capability to design and virtually test complex systems composed of many components, but also including mechatronics or other type of physical behavior. Successful optimal design is not only limited to meeting functional requirements, but also to meet tighter regulations and faster time-to-market expectations, while keeping costs low and meet 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 allow to represent more and more complex behavior of physical systems. On the other side, the use of reduced models, which are now capable to run real time, have opened the door to new technologies like model in the loop, software in the loop, hardware in the loop and so on, opening the door to early testing of systems mixing virtual components with real hardware.

NAFEMS is pleased to announce the international conference devoted to Multi Body Dynamics Simulations. 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 multiphysics simulation methods to present new results, exchange ideas and discuss the challenges. It is an excellent opportunity to connect to other practitioners in the fi eld of multiphysics and coupled simulations. The conference will include keynotes, exhibits and breakout sessions.

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 written 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 cosimulation will be presented during a common session organised in collaboration with the NAFEMS Multiphysics Working Group.
