23rd EUROPEAN Conference
on Modelling and Simulation

ECMS 2009

June 9th - 12th, 2009
Madrid, Spain


Bond Graph Modeling and Simulation (BG)



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
