Special Session on
Model Driven Development for Systems Design: Techniques, Tools and Methodologies
 - MDDSD 2013

4 - 7 July, 2013 - Angers, France

Within the 15th International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems - ICEIS 2013



Jérôme Delatour
Independent Researcher

Brief Bio
Jerome Delatour is associate professor at ESEO in Angers-France, a graduate school of engineering in electronics, computing, networking and telecommunications. His research interest is based on the definition of model transformations for embedded systems, developing bridges between semi-formal languages (UML, SysML, AADL, Autosar) and formal ones (Automata, Petri Net...). His current research goal is to get a better understanding of the notion of Platform Description Model (PDM).

Brief Bio
Slimane Hammoudi is Professor at ESEO in Angers-France, a graduate school of engineering in electronics, computing, networking and telecommunications. Since 2003 his research interests have been in the main area of Model Driven Engineering with the focus on two application domains: Web Services and Context-Awareness. Since 2005, he has served as a co-chair of a workshop on Model Driven Development (MDEIS and FTMDD), a satellite workshop of ICEIS, international conference on enterprise information systems.


The Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) is an approach to the development of systems whether software or hardware (embedded or not), 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 (parameterized) 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. In Model-Driven Development the MDA principles and technologies are applied in the development of information systems and embedded systems. MDD has already been around for some years and is about to become commodity in software development due to its benefits (reduction on development costs, improvement of software quality, reduction of maintenance costs and the support for controlled evolution of IT systems). MDD has also been applied in many application areas, such as real-time and embedded systems, telecommunication systems, and, more recently, in the development and integration of enterprise information systems. However, the MDD research community is wishing to explore the bounds of MDD, by investigating new applications areas and combinations with other emerging technologies, like, for example, pervasive context-aware systems, Semantic web, Semantic web services, automotive, high-tech industrial systems, care and assisted living. This Special session aims at fostering the latest developments and applications of MDD approach. We invite authors to submit contributions on the techniques, the tools and the methodologies of MDD for the design of emerging and future information systems or embedded systems.
