Call for Papers

9th International Conference on Bond Graph Modeling and Simulation

Co-sponsored by The American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA)

The 2010 International Conference on Bond Graph Modeling and Simulation brings together research paper presentations, panel sessions, tutorials, workshops, seminars, industrial applications, and software demonstrations that use Bond Graph modeling methods. There will be also featured plenary speakers and some special invited presentations. This conference will focus on Bond Graph modeling techniques for dynamic systems. Theoretical principles for electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and control system applications will be presented. Leading industrial users of the method in automotive, aircraft, fluid power, kinematics, multibody systems, and social and biological systems have been invited. Research papers are welcome in the following categories of presentation:

  • Mechanical Systems and Robotics
  • Electrical and Power Systems
  • Software and Tools
  • Control Systems
  • Bond Graph Theory
  • Thermal and Chemical Systems
  • Advanced Bond Graph Methodology Biomechanics and Prosthetics
  • Bond Graphs and Block Diagrams Ecological Systems
  • Computer Graphics and Bond Graph Modeling
  • Biological and Medical Systems
  • Social and Economic Systems
  • Modeling Industrial Applications
  • Mechatronics Systems
  • Large, Nonlinear Models
  • There will also be Panel Discussions & Tutorials.

Paper Submission

Abstracts may be submitted via email alternatively to the General Chair or the Program Chair. In addition to regular papers about 12 pages (double spaced), the program committee may accept additional papers, either as short papers (about 6 pages double-spaced), or proposals for tutorials. Please add a cover letter stating your name, affiliation, mail address, telephone number, FAX number, and e-mail address. The short abstracts will be reviewed by the two Chairs for general suitability to the conference. Three members of the International Program Committee will review each full paper.

Final papers must be submitted to the SCS Conference Proceedings Management System. All papers must include the authors' affiliation and e-mail addresses of all authors. The e-mail addresses should be related to the authors' institutions and not public portals. Paper formatting instructions and copyright form are available here. All papers will be fully refereed for accuracy, technical content, and relevance. Papers should be NO longer than 8 single-spaced double-column pages. At least one author must pre-register for the conference, paying the full registration fee, in order to have their paper included in the CD. Accepted papers will appear in the ACM Digital Library. Contact the Chairs with any questions concerning the paper submission and review process, or questions regarding the relevance of a paper to the conference.
