The 3rd International Workshop on
Model-Driven Enterprise Information Systems
(MDEIS 2007)
12-13 June, 2007 - Funchal, Madeira - Portugal

Workshop Program

In conjunction with the 9th International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems (ICEIS 2007)

Background and Goals
The Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) is an approach to the development of IT systems fostered by the Object Management Group (OMG) that separates the specification of the system functionality from its implementation on a particular platform. A common pattern of MDA development is to define a platform-independent model (PIM) of a system, and to apply (parameterised) transformations to this PIM to obtain one or more platform-specific models (PSMs). In this context, PIMs are reusable models that consolidate the application development effort. Furthermore, MDA advocates the use of OMG core technology, especially the Meta-Object Facility (MOF) and MOF-compliant languages such as UML and CWM. The potential benefits of MDA are reduction on development costs, improvement of software quality, reduction of maintenance costs and the support for controlled evolution of IT systems. The goal of this workshop is to bring together people working on MDA techniques and tools, and applying them on enterprise information systems, so that they can exchange their experience with the use of MDA, create new ideas, evaluate and improve MDA and spread its use. This year, submissions regarding the combined application of MDA and emerging technologies such as the Semantic Web, Semantic Web services, Ontologies and knowledge representation, are greatly encouraged.

Topics of interest
Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

• Applications of MDA in EIS
• PIM and PSM metamodels for EIS
• Model-Driven Specification Engineering Process
• Domain Specific Languages (DSL)
• Model Transformation Languages and Tools
• Applying MDA to Databases
• Applying MDA to Enterprise Application Integration (EAI)
• Ontology and MDA
• Business Process Modelling and MDA
• Applying MDA to reverse-engineering and software maintenance within the EIS context
• Application of MDA for Management of heterogeneous IT Environments
• Modelling and Simulation (M&S) of MDA applications
• Automatic Mapping Tools: theory and implementation
• J2EE and dotNET in the MDA context for building EIS
• MDA adoption in EIS: barriers and solutions
• MDA and Service-Oriented Architectures
• MDA and Semantic Web
• MDA and Semantic Web services
• MDA and Ontologies or other knowledge representation techniques
