Seventh European Conference on Modelling Foundations and Applications

Symposion on Model Driven Engineering: Software & Data Integration, Process Based Approaches and Tools
June 6 & June 7, 2011@ECMFA, Birmingham  [link]

The MDE Symposion adresses a joint view on different model based approaches, as the integration aspects of data and software component, the area of application lifecycle management, and, the use of processes to improve software reliability and productivity. It is  a joint event featuring the below three workshops at ECMFA

Workshop 1

The Third International Workshop on Model-Based Software and DatA Integration (MBSDI 2011)
June 6, 2011

The "3rd International Workshop on Model-Based Software and Data Integration MBSDI 2011", short: MBSDI 2011 @ ECMFA, follows the goal to continuously develop the community of model-based software and data integration researchers & software professionals.
     Many challenges, experiences and results appear in the MBSDI organizers’ project collaborations with several SMEs working in the area of software & information integration. In the previous years, it could be demonstrated that model-based software engineering (MBSWE) offers not only the methodology but also standardized (meta) tools and platforms  for enterprise-wide and cross-enterprise integration of software solutions with the ultimate goal of (semi) automatic generation of added-value such as business intelligence components and others.
     Our workshop, after the success of MBSDI 2008 (Berlin) and 2009 (Sydney), will be the third of its kind, directly addressing collaborative development of methodologies and tools for Model-Based Software and Data Integration (MBSDI).
    An additional focus in the 2011 issue of MBSDI will be the emerging field of domain modeling and domain ontologies, as an important aid in (semi-) automated understanding software and data components and their potentials for integration. DSLs and, particularly, Domain Specific Modeling Languages (DSMLs) will be a special focus area in MBSDI 2011.

Workshop 2

Model-Driven Engineering, Logic and Optimization: friends or foes? (MELO 2011)

June 6, 2011

The main goal of this workshop is to bring together two different communities: the Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) community and the logic programming community, to explore how each community can benefit from the techniques of the other. We refer to the logic programming community in a broad sense (i.e. including Constraint Logic Programming, Answer-Set Programming but also ontology and semantic web aspects).

Workshop 3

The Third Workshop on Behavioural Modelling - Foundations and
Applications (BM-FA 2011)

June 6, 2011

Recent trends in software system development point to the growing importance of behaviour modelling:
     -  The growing role of business process management and workflow;
    - The growing importance of Service-Orientation with the consequent emphasis on well defined interaction;
   - The importance of interfaces, contracts and service level agreements in defining behavioural system integration both within and across organizational boundaries;
     To meet the challenges presented by these trends we must be able to determine which behaviour modelling techniques are applicable to a given situation, and be able to use multiple techniques in combination. This requires suitable compositional semantics so that the various models used to describe the behaviour of a complex system can be put together.

     The workshop of Behaviour Modelling- Foundations and Applications brings together people from academia and industry who are interested in
    - Evaluation of goals and application area of different modelling techniques;
    - Direct execution of, and code generation from, behavioural models;
    - Composition and decomposition of behavioural models;
    - Combination of different behaviour modelling approaches;
    - Application of formal reasoning to behavioural models.
     The goal of the workshop is to make contributions in the area of software and systems behaviour modelling to address the demands of today’s systems and applications requirements.

Workshop 4

The Fourth Workshop on Model-Driven Tool & Process Integration (MDTPI 2011)
June 7, 2011

The workshop addresses the area of application lifecycle management. Its main concern is the integration of tools and efficient distribution of information in development environments underlying with process based on MDE techniques such as model transformation.
    
The aim of the workshop is to join researchers and practitioners in the field of development tool, process and data integration.

Workshop 5

The First Workshop on Process-centred approaches for Model-Driven Engineering (PMDE 2011)
June 7, 2011

Despite the benefits brought by the Model-Driven Engineering approach, the complexity of today’s applications is still hard to master. Building complex and trustworthy software systems in the shortest time-to-market remains the challenging objective that competitive companies are facing constantly. A more challenging objective for these companies is to be able to formalize their development processes in order to analyze them, to simulate and execute them, and to reason about their possible improvement.

The PMDE Workshop aims to gather researchers and industrial practitioners working in the field of Model-Based Engineering, and more particularly on the use of processes to improve software reliability and productivity.
