Title: High Level Mathematical Modeling and Parallel/GRID Computing with Modelica using OpenModelica
Speaker: Peter Fritzson

Modelica is a general declarative equation-based object-oriented language for continuous
and discrete-event modeling of physical systems for the purpose of efficient
simulation. The language unifies and generalizes previous object-oriented
modeling languages. 
In this talk we present  methods and OpenModelica tooling for automatic extraction of fine-grained
parallelism from high-level equation-based models as well as manually specifying  coarse-grained parallelism and algorithmic parallelism. Especially the fine-grained  parallelism we believe fits well with the coming multi-core architectures. Some measurements from parallel execution are presented and a demo of OpenModelica is given.
