The International Workshop on Functional Modelling, IWFM 2012, will take place at the Technical University of Denmark, DTU, 6-7 November 2012.
Functional modelling is an exciting research field which is highly relevant for the engineering disciplines. It addresses basic questions about the relations between means and ends or purposes and our understanding of complex physical artifacts like industrial systems and infrastructures.
Functional modelling has its roots in AI research and is reaching a promising level of maturity. Modelling tools are becoming available (such as Multilevel Flow Modelling). Functional modelling has therefore the potential to play a central role in future advancements of systems engineering.
IWFM 2012 is hosted by the AutomationDESIGN initiative at Department of Electrical Engineering, DTU, which is a cooperation between research groups at DTU within several engineering disciplines. AutomationDESIGN cooperates with the IFE Halden Reactor Project in Norway and with universities in Japan and China on functional modelling and its applications.
