Dear All,

CFP: Workshop on Equation-Based Object-Oriented Languages and Tools (EOOLT)

                Call for Contributions EOOLT'2009
     3rd Workshop on Equation-Based Object-Oriented Languages and Tools
                  in conjunction with Modelica'2009

                 September 23, 2009  (Como, Italy)


               (see also: http://www.modelica.org/events/modelica2009/)


Computer aided modeling and simulation of complex systems, using components
from multiple application domains, such as electrical, mechanical,
hydraulic, control, etc., have in recent years witnessed a significant
growth of interest. In the last decade, novel equation-based modeling
languages, (e.g. Modelica, gPROMS, Chi, Verilog-AMS, VHDL-AMS, and SysML)
supporting acausal modeling using differential algebraic equations (DAEs)
have ap-peared. Using such languages, it has become possible to model
complex systems covering multiple application domains at a high level of
abstraction through reusable model components. In the last couple of years
the name equation-based object-oriented (EOO) language has been introduced
to denote modeling languages within this category.

The EOOLT Workshop addresses the current state of the art of EOO modeling
languages as well as open issues that currently still limit the expression
power, correctness, and usefulness of such languages through a set of
full-length presentations and forum discussions. 

The workshop is concerned with, but not limited to, the following themes: 

 * Acausality and its role in model reusability. 
 * Component systems for EOO languages. 
 * Database lookup and knowledge invocation. 
 * Discrete-event and hybrid modeling using EOO languages. 
 * Embedded systems related to EOO languages. 
 * EOO language constructs in support of simulation, optimization,
   diagnostics, and system identification. 
 * EOO mathematical modeling vs. UML or SysML modeling. 
 * Equation-based languages supporting DAEs and/or PDEs. 
 * Formal semantics of EOO related languages. 
 * Model-driven development related to EOO languages.
 * Multi-resolution / multi-scale modeling using EOO languages. 
 * Numerical coupling of EOO simulators and other simulation tools. 
 * Parallel execution of EOO models. 
 * Performance issues. 
 * Programming / modeling environments. 
 * Real-time simulation using EOO languages. 
 * Reflection and meta-programming. 
 * Reuse of models in EOO languages. 
 * Table lookup and interpolation. 
 * Type systems and early static checking. 
 * Verification of EOO models.
 * Comparsion between EOO languages and closely related approaches, 
   such as causal block-based languages or other hybrid formalisms.


Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit full-length research
papers (up to 10 pages) for consideration by the program committee. 

Papers are welcome that offer presentations and discussions of existing
tools, their capabilities and limitations; reports on practical experience;
demonstrations of tools, ideas, and concepts; positions related to relevant
questions; and discussion topics.


If a paper has been accepted, the authors should present the paper at the
workshop and also have the paper published in electronic proceedings (and a
local conference paper version) at Linköping University Electronic Press.
The best of these papers will be selected and the authors will be asked to
resubmit an extended version for review and to be possibly published, e.g.
in the SIMPRA journal or SNE.
