, October 7-9. 2015, in Linköping, Sweden. The 56th Conference on Simulation and Modelling was held in Linköping, Sweden. Linköping is one of Sweden’s fastest growing cities. It is currently Sweden’s fifth largest city and a part of the expansive region Twin Cities of Sweden. Linköping has long been characterized by world-class high technology in the fields of aviation, IT and the environment. There is a strong force of innovation especially in Mjärdevi Science Park—one of Europe’s leading technology parks, and at the highly ranked university, which stands for excellence and entrepreneurship. The scientific program includes technical sessions with submitted and invited papers and will cover broad aspects of simulation, modeling and optimization. The focus of the conference is split evenly between papers on simulation and optimization in a variety of applied contexts spanning domains such as oil extraction, automotive and building industries and more methodological papers on tools and technologies for simulation and modeling. The conference emphasizes the importance of reducing the gap between state of the art methodologies and tools and industrial applications. To this end a number of invited talks, papers and tutorials were centered on tools and methodologies for successful modeling in an industrial context. The format of the conference is somewhat changed compared to previous years. A half-day before the traditional two-day conference was dedicated to tutorials, with 3 tutorials presenting state of-the-art simulation tools.
The program included four keynote speeches, 40 papers in two parallel tracks and three tutorials. All papers and some associated Modelica libraries and models are included in the electronic proceedings.
