will be a Keynote Speaker at the 6th International Conference on Simulation and Modeling Methodologies, Technologies and Applications
), on July 31st, 2016
The conference is supported by the IEEE Computer Society with ACM.
The talk, titled "Object-Oriented Modelling and Simulation: State of the Art and Future Perspectives", will focus on Equation-based, object-oriented simulation of dynamical systems.
This system, first introduced in the '90, has now reached a state of maturity, and is widely used in a number of engineering domains, such as automotive, mechatronics.
The talk will give an overview of the object-oriented modelling paradigm and of successful applications, with particular reference to the Modelica language and tools. It will also discuss open problems and challenges which will have to be tackled to ensure an even wider adoption of object-oriented modelling methods and simulation tools in new, emerging fields such as cyber-physical system design.
