EUROSIM 2007



6th EUROSIM Congress on Modelling and Simulation, 9-13 Sept. 2007, Ljubljana, Slovenia

Official home page: http://msc.fe.uni-lj.si/slosim/Eurosim2007/Index.html

The Congress was organised by the Slovenian Society for Modelling and Simulation SLOSIM and University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Electrical Engineering.

The efforts of the organisers have resulted in an unexpectedly large interest in the event, as much more than five hundred papers from almost 50 countries were submitted. Altogether 420 contributions from 42 countries were included in the final programme. This proves that modelling and simulation is, in spite of being a very traditional discipline, still attractive, modern, and with a wide range of applications and research possibilities, and is closely connected with many of the most sophisticated and modern disciplines.

456 paricipants were officially registered fot the Congress.

Participants



The scope of the Congress

The scope of the congress included all aspects of continuous, discrete (event) and hybrid modelling, simulation, identification and optimisation approaches. The programme scheme consisted of:

Opening





Tutorials


David Murray-Smith

Three tutorials covered the more general areas of broader interest. Below you can find the titles and the presenters:

Murray-Smith D.
INVERSE SIMULATION METHODS AND APPLICATIONS

Kindler E.
SUPER-OBJECT-ORIENTED PROGRAMMING AND MODEL NESTING

Fritzson P., Lundvall H., Brugård J.
INTRODUCTION TO OBJECT-ORIENTED MODELING AND SIMULATION WITH MODELICA USING OPENMODELICA ENVIRONMENT

Plenary lectures

Five plenary lectures were presented by five outstanding speakers, all of them well known in the field of modelling and simulation (see titles and presenters below). The lectures covered a wide range of modelling and simulation topics.

Cellier F.
ELECTRONIC CIRCUIT MODELING AND SIMULATION IN MODELICA

Šarler B.
INTEGRATED MULTISCALE SIMULATION OF CONTINUOUS CASTING OF STEEL

Juslin K.
EXPERIENCES AND TRENDS IN MODELLING AND SIMULATION OF INTEGRATED INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES

Breitenecker F.
AN ODE FOR THE RENAISSANCE

Longo J.M.A
THE CHALLENGE OF MODELING HIGH SPEED FLOWS








F. Cellier, B. Šarler, K. Juslin, F. Breitenecker and J.M. Longo

Regular programme

The regular programme consisted of regular papers and posters. The only distinction was in the form of presentation: oral or poster. There were 34 regular sessions with oral presentation with 203 contributions and 1 poster session with 30 contributions, altogether 233 papers, which cover the congress’ scope and topics. All the papers were revised by at least three members from the International Programme Committee.

Special sessions

Twenty-three special sessions (some are organised as tracks) with 168 papers were organised by experts from the area of modelling and simulation and cover rather specific areas relating to modelling and simulation. Partly these are invited papers, and partly they were submitted after the session organisers’ call. The review procedure was organised by the session organisers. The following sessions were included into the programme:

The student competition

The student competition contained papers describing the work of undergraduate or bachelor/master students. This means that it was not intended for PhD students unless they are presenting their earlier work. Ten students competed in this session.
