Markus Völter

Advance submission of a position paper is required in order to attend this symposium.

The purpose of the Eclipse Modeling Symposium is to explore present or future applications of the Eclipse EMP platform in industry, research and education.

This year’s main topic is integration. While there are a lot of modeling related technology components hosted at, it is not completely obvious how to build real systems from these components – integration is a central challenge. This is why this year’s symposium will focus on this integration challenge.

Participation by tool vendors/developers

The participation process for tool vendors for the symposium is as follows:
  • You’ll need to find another modeling-related tool hosted at and build an integration with that tool.
  • Then, write a 2-3 page paper, showing the integration and explaining why the integration of these two tools solves a real-world problem.
  • At the symposium, you will be given the opportunity to demo/show/describe the integration.

Participation by other particpants (non-tool vendors or developers)

You can also participate as a non-tool vendor/developer by describing an integration challenge or experience report. If you’d like to participate, all you need to do is write a paper, (2 pages minimum, 10 pages, maximum) describing the challenge or experience report. There will be time slots at the workshop to present your paper.
