Scalability in Model Driven Engineering

As Model Driven Engineering (MDE) is increasingly applied to larger and more complex systems, the current generation of modelling and model management technologies are being pushed to their limits in terms of capacity and efficiency. As such, additional research and development is imperative in order to enable MDE to remain relevant with industrial practice and to continue delivering its widely-recognised productivity, quality, and maintainability benefits.

The aim of this workshop is to provide a venue where developers and users of modelling and model management languages and tools can present problems and solutions related to topics such as:

  • Working with large models
  • Collaborative modelling (version control, collaborative editing)
  • Transformation and validation of large models
  • Model fragmentation and modularity mechanisms
  • Efficient model persistence and retrieval
  • Models and model transformations on the cloud
  • Visualization techniques for large models

Important Dates

  • Deadline for submissions: April 25, 2016
  • Notification of authors: May 25, 2016
  • Camera-ready: June 26, 2016
  • Workshop date: July, 2016 (TBD)



We advocate two types of papers: 6-page tool demonstration papers, and 10-page regular papers (including all text, references, appendices and figures). Papers must be submitted in PDF and must adhere to the LNCS format. Accepted papers will be published in the DBLP-indexed, open-access CEUR Workshop Proceedings. Paper submissions can be made electronically through EasyChair: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bigmde16.
