The 32nd IASTED International Conference on
Modelling, Identification and Control
February 11 – 13, 2013
Biography of the Conference Chair
The instructor is a Professor of Modelling and Simulation of Engineering Systems at Bonn-Rhein-Sieg Univ. and holds an honorary position as Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the University of Dubrovnik, Croatia.
Dr. Borutzky has published in the proceedings of many international conferences on Modelling and Simulation and in refereed scientific journals. He is the author of the 2010 Springer monograph titled Bond Graph Methodology - Development and Analysis of Multidisciplinary Dynamic System Models. He is also the editor and a co-author of a 2011 Springer compilation text on Bond Graph Modelling of Engineering Systems with contributions from experts in various fields from all over the world. Furthermore, he was the guest editor of two special journal issues on bond graph modelling.
Since 1990 he has served in many international scientific conferences on Modelling and Simulation in various capacities. In 2005 he was Assistant General Chair of the European Conference on Modelling and Simulation (EMCS) in Riga, Latvia, in 2006 he was the General Chair of the ECMS 2006 in Sankt Augustin, Germany. From 2005 to 2007 he served on the Board of the European Council for Modelling and Simulation.
In 2009, he was an invited tutorial speaker of the IASTED Conference on Modelling, Simulation and Identification (MSI 2009) in Beijing, China, in 2010 he was one of the invited keynote speakers to the Conference on Power Control and Optimisation (PCO 2010) in Kuching, Malaysia.
In 2012 he was one of the invited keynote speakers of a workshop on bond graph modelling in Pune, India, and one of the invited keynote speakers of the SCS Summer Simulation Multi-Conference in Genoa, Italy.
In 2013 he was the Conference Chair of the international IASTED conference on Modelling, Identification, and Control (MIC 2013) in Innsbruck, Austria.
He has also served as an invited external examiner and as a member of some PhD defense committees in France, in the UK and in India. Moreover, he has given invited lectures and short courses in industry on bond graph modelling.
He was a visiting professor at various universities, most recently at Universidad Nacional de Rosario (UNR), Argentina (2011). Since 2008 he holds an honorary position as Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the University of Dubrovnik, Croatia.
His research interests include modelling and simulation methodologies for multidisciplinary systems, in particular Bond Graph-based as well as object oriented modelling; modelling, analysis, control and fault diagnosis of mechatronic systems; modelling languages; software design for modelling and simulation of continuous, as well as hybrid systems; scientific computing, numerical algorithms and software design for (parallel) continuous system simulation.
Dr. Borutzky is a member of the IASTED Technical Committee on Modelling and Simulation and a senior member of the Society for Modelling and Simulation International (SCSI). During the 2004-2006 biennium he served on the SCS Board of Directors. He is also active as a member of the Editorial Board of some major modelling and simulation related journals. Currently, he is again an Associate Editor of the journal Simulation: Transactions of the Society for Modeling and Simulation International.
