Model Driven Engineering (MDE) promotes the use of models as first class entities in most parts of the software production and maintenance processes. Eclipse open source technology is providing unprecedented opportunities for MDE to be known, to rapidly mature and to prove that it represents a real alternative to software development practices. The ability to use metamodeling techniques for rapidly building Domain Specific Languages (DSLs) is seen as an important advantage of the Eclipse framework.
The creation of the Eclipse Modeling Project (EMP) has made this even more concrete, more structured, more visible and is giving a high momentum to many MDE initiatives in different application fields like aeronautics, automotive, data intensive systems, business information systems, enterprise interoperability, reverse engineering and many more.
The purpose of the Eclipse Modeling Symposium is to explore present or future applications of the Eclipse EMP platform in industry, research and education.
In order to participate, you have to write a position paper (minimum two pages, maximum ten pages) that raises an issue, describes a problem or sketches a solution that should be discussed at the modeling forum.
The contribution may be provided in PDF format only, should be licensed under EPL and needs to be sent to the organizers (see below) by September 25.
There's no specific grand topic for this year's forum, but the general theme is the scaling up issues in model engineering in general and EMF-based applications in particular:
