Workshop on Modeling & Simulation in E-Mobility


Track at the International Conference on Harbour, Maritime & Multimodal Logistics Modelling and Simulation

(HMS 2012)


Chairs: (a) Michael Affenzeller, (b) Witold Jacak (c) Thomas Kern

Affiliation: (a), (b),(c)University of Applied Sciences ,Upper Austria;

Contacts: (a), (b) (c);


Workshop Description

The track deals with modeling and simulation topics in the context of electric, energy-efficient, economic, and ecological mobility. Topics of interest are as follows.

· Multi-physics/multi-body simulation and visualization of mechatronic systems, drives and materials for e-mobility;

· Modeling of energy sources and networks like traction batteries, alternative fuels, and smart grids for life time quality management, ecological balancing and optimization;

· Models for energy-efficient logistics, B2B integration and supply chain management;

· ICT-models for route planning optimization, secure e-mobility applications, dynamic drive information systems, mobile radio networks, virtual mobility and e-work.

Nevertheless different topics concerning e-mobility, modeling and simulation are welcome.

Authors' Guidelines (further information author’s instruction section)


Extended abstracts (minimum 2 pages), full draft papers or other proposals should be submitted for the review process through the submission section by May 15, 2012.

The extended abstract or the full draft paper must contain title, authors, affiliations, addresses, main body and references.

Each extended abstract or full draft paper will be reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee taking into consideration scientific quality, originality and relevance. Only original papers, written in English will be accepted.

The extended abstract or the full draft paper should be prepared by following the final paper formatting. However any type of paper formatting can be accepted for the first submission.



Notification of acceptance will be sent by June 15, 2012.



The International Program Committee will accept two types of camera ready papers: extended paper (10 pages, 2 columns); regular paper (6 pages, 2 columns) both for regular and special sessions.

The camera ready paper must adhere to the conference template. The .dot file contains the complete instructions for preparing a camera ready copy for the Proceedings. The final version of the paper must be a PDF file.

Your camera ready paper (extended paper or regular paper) in PDF format must be

submitted by using the submission section before the 15th of July 2012.

The page limit for manuscripts is ten (10) pages (included  in the author registration fee). Additional pages will require an additional fee.

If your work must be cleared or approved before publication by  your institution, company, or governmental agency, please be sure that  process will be completed by the due date above or we will not be able to include it in the CD Conference Proceedings.
