EUROPEAN Conference
on Modelling and Simulation

ECMS 2008

June 3rd - 6th, 2008
Nicosia, Cyprus



    Bond Graph Modeling and Simulation

    This track focuses on Bond Graph modeling techniques for dynamic systems.
    Bond Graphs are a graphical description formalism that is particularly 
    suited for the design of mechatronic systems, i.e., 
    for engineering systems with mechanical, electrical, hydraulic or pneumatic components 
    that include interactions of physical phenomena from various energy domains.

    Moreover, Bond Graphs can be used not only for modeling and simulation but for 
    diagnosis of dynamic physical systems and for control system design as well. 
    Last but not least, the graphical and causal properties of Bond Graphs are 
    well suited for software implementation.

    The topics of this track include (but are not limited to):

    Bond Graph Theory (e.g., for Analysis and Control, for Diagnosis, ... )
    Advanced Bond Graph Methodology
    Model synthesis, assembly, reduction and validation with Bond Graphs
    Bond Graphs and Block Diagrams
    Computer Graphics and Bond Graph Modeling
    Control Systems
    Mechatronic Systems
    Mechanical Systems and Robotics
    Electrical and Power Systems
    Process Engineering (Chemical, Fluid Power Systems ...)
    Software and Tools
    Industrial Applications of the Methodology
    Model applications include Automotive, Manufacturing, Transportation, 
            MEMS, Aerospace, etc

    Original papers written in English are solicited for consideration 
    on the basis of a full paper review. 
    Accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings. 
    Moreover, the authors of the best papers will be invited to submit an 
    elaborated manuscript for possible inclusion in a special issue of an international journal.

    Chair: Loucas S. Louca
    Co-Chair: Wolfgang Borutzky
