The 1st Japanese Modelica Conference, which takes place in Tokyo, is the first of hopefully many more to come. With this effort, we hope to create an arena in Japan and Asia for sharing knowledge and learning about the latest scientific and industrial progress related to Modelica and FMI (Functional Mockup Interface). Ultimately we also hope to see enough momentum to motivate an International Modelica Conference organized in the region. We are surprised but very glad to see the overwhelming interest to both join and contribute to the conference. Instead of originally planned 8 paper presentations and one key-note during one day, we have had to extend the scope and are now proud to present a conference with:
- 2 Keynote speeches
- 18 paper presentations
- A fully booked exhibition area featuring 8 exhibitors
- Concurrent interpretation between Japanese and English
- Great venue location in the heart of Tokyo at the Swedish Embassy
- A conference mingle dinner at the Ambassador’s residence According to Modelica Association standards, all papers are peer-reviewed and will be freely available for download.
We want to acknowledge the support we received from the conference board and program committee. Special thanks to our colleagues at Modelon K.K. for taking care of all the practical matters, and to the Swedish Embassy in Tokyo for hosting the event. Support from the conference sponsors is gratefully acknowledged. Last but not least, thanks to all authors, keynote speakers, and presenters for their contributions to this conference.
We wish all participants an enjoyable and inspiring conference!
