Cloud computing is gaining more and more attention with the ubiquity of on-demand Internet-based services and resources, such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS) and more generally Everything as a Service (XaaS).

The modeling community is among the most active and diverse in Eclipse's ecosystem. The modeling symposium aims to provide a forum for community members to present a brief overview of their work. We will encourage 10-minute lightning talks to facilitate a broad range of speakers. The primary goal is to introduce new and interesting technology features. We will open up an informal call for submissions from the community. Depending on the number, we will select submissions that will create a diverse slate of talks.
