OMNeT++ Community Summit 2022

Virtual Summit – Date: November 2, 2022.


The ninth OMNeT++ Community Summit will be held virtually on November 2, 2022.

OMNeT++ is a public-source, component-based, modular and open-architecture simulation environment with strong GUI support and an embeddable simulation kernel. It is designed to simulate discrete event systems, with the simulation of communication networks as one of its primary application areas.

In continuation of the history of the International Workshop on OMNeT++ and seven very successful editions of its reincarnation, the OMNeT++ Community Summit, we continue to hold a yearly open meeting for all OMNeT++ community members with less costs and more interaction possibilities. The Community Summit provides a forum for tutorials, discussion sessions and presentations on recent developments and novel ideas in the area of simulation and modeling, with a focus on the OMNeT++ simulation environment.

The first seven Summits in Hamburg, Zurich, Brno, Bremen, Pisa, Hamburg and the later virtual ones were huge successes with lively discussions, keynotes, tutorials, panels, presentations, and demonstrations of ongoing and finalized research covering many aspects of OMNeT++-related research.


If you have a project you would like to present at the summit, please send an abstract to us before 3rd of October so we can enroll you to the summit as a presenter.


We will use Discord as a coordinating channel. Please REGISTER so we can send you an invitation before the summit begins. Registration deadline is 1st of November.


The OMNeT++ Summit usually a lively event with a lot of group discussions. A wide range of presentations and interactive sessions regarding specific topics will be held. There will be enough time to discuss OMNeT++ and related simulation and modeling questions. The event will be fully virtual. Session topics and timing will be announced at a later date.

We plan to hold interactive presentations limiting participation for each time slot to 6-7 people to encourage real discussion. If there is demand, the same presentation will be held multiple times. We also plan to record the sessions for later publication.

Planned sessions:

  • Simulations for eternity: Creating and sharing reproduceable simulations using the NIX package manager. - (OMNeT++ team)
  • Using Python within simulations. - (OMNeT++ team)
  • The power of running multiple simulations using Python. - (OMNeT++ team)
  • OMNeT++ as a Python package, and customizing OMNeT++ simulation programs with Python scripting. - (OMNeT++ team)
  • Using Analysis Tool's charts from the command line or Python scripts. - (OMNeT++ team)
