Objectives of the Bond Graph Workshop

The Bond Graph workshop will bring experts together for the purpose of discussing new concepts, methods, techniques, tools, and applications of this energy-based modeling methodology.

Papers dealing with all aspects of the use of bond graphs in system design, analysis, and control are welcome.  The workshop will provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of recent research and applications of the Bond Graph methodology.

Research papers are welcome in the following categories of presentation:

ˇ  Tutorials

ˇ  Panel Discussions

ˇ  Software and Tools

ˇ  Bond Graph Theory

ˇ  Advanced Bond Graph Methodology

ˇ  Bond Graphs and Block Diagrams

ˇ  Computer Graphics and Bond Graph Modeling

ˇ  Qualitative Modeling

ˇ  Mechatronics Systems

ˇ  Mechanical Systems and Robotics

ˇ  Electrical and Power Systems

ˇ  Control Systems

ˇ  Thermal and Chemical Systems

ˇ  Biomechanics and Prosthetics

ˇ  Ecological Systems

ˇ  Biological and Medical Systems

ˇ  Social and Economic Systems

ˇ  Industrial Applications

ˇ  Large, Nonlinear Models


Please note :

Papers involving real applications works will receive a special attention.
Papers will be gathered in proceedings available at the begining of the symposium
We are doing our best for a post-congress publication of papers in one international journal.
Only original papers, written in English, which have not previously been published elsewhere will be accepted.

How to submit :

Papers will be considered for presentation at the workshop on the basis of a full paper revision. In order to expedite the reviewing process, full papers are to be sent electronically (about 12 pages, double-spaced, pdf or ps format) to the Workshop Coordinators:  and

with a cc to the Conference General Chair:

Please attach a file with a cover letter specifying “ESS 2001, Bond Graph Workshop”, and stating your name, affiliation, mail address, telephone number, FAX number, and E-mail address. The full papers will be first reviewed by the two Chairs for general suitability to the conference. After this first selection, each full paper will be reviewed by three members of the International Program Committee.

Deadlines :

Full Papers: 30 April 2001

Acceptance Notification: 15 June 2001
Full Camera-Ready Papers: 10 September 2001
