Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit draft presentations, abstracts, or full paper drafts for consideration by the organizing committee. Publication at this event does not prevent future publication at scientific conferences. The submission can be new or recently published work.

The submission can be an abstract (can be short) and (optional but encouraged) a .pdf file, to be submitted at:

For submission to MODPROD 2022, use

For submission to OpenModelica 2022, use

Important Dates

Submission deadline: November 14, 2021

Acceptance notification: November 28, 2021


The final version of the presentation, delivered by the presenter at the workshop, will be put on the web. Papers will not be published here. The authors are free to publish paper versions of their work elsewhere, in conferences or journals. The language of the workshops is English.

Supporting organizations

The Center for Model-based Cyber-Physical Product Development (MODPROD) is an inter-disciplinary research center at Linköping University. It revolves around model-based tools and methods for cyber-physical systems, mechanical systems, electronic systems and software, and unified approaches for model-based design. This workshop brings together expertise in these fields to discuss state of the art and the way ahead.

The Open Source Modelica Consortium (OSMC) is a non-profit organization supporting the development of the OpenModelica Open-Source implementation of Modelica and related tools, e.g. OMSimulator for FMI based modeling and simulation, ModelicaML (UML-Modelica integration), OMOptim, OMPython, OMJulia, OMDebugger, for industrial and academic usage.

The IEEE Computer Society traces its origins to the 1946 and advances the theory, practice, and application of computer and information-processing science and technology. The Swedish Chapter has been recommending MODPROD to its members since 2015.

ICES is a collaboration center at KTH in the areas of software-intensive embedded and cyber-physical systems ( Acting as a competence network with more than 30 industrial partners and collaborations with other initiatives, ICES takes on the role to bridge gaps between disciplines and domains, students, researchers/teachers and industrial engineers and managers.
