Keynote: A Roadmap for Domain-Specific Low-Code Platforms

Posted on 13 May 2021

Dimitris Kolovos will give a keynote talk on domain-specific low-code platforms at the SiriusCon conference.

SiriusCon is an annual practitioner-oriented conference on graphical modelling with the Eclipse Sirius open-source toolkit and this year's speaker lineup will include representatives from organisations such as Thales, CEA List, ATOS and McKinsey.

Low-code development platforms aspire to streamline the development, deployment and maintenance of specific types of software systems, and to make these activities accessible to an increasingly digital-native workforce. In this talk Dimitris will discuss the importance of domain-specific (as opposed to one-size-fits-all) low-code platforms in this new landscape and will focus on the main opportunities and challenges of assembling such platforms from existing open-source components.

Dimitris Kolovos is a Professor of Software Engineering in the Department of Computer Science at the University of York, where he researches and teaches automated and model-driven software engineering. He is also an Eclipse Foundation committer, leading the development of the open-source Epsilon model-driven software engineering platform. He has co-authored more than 150 peer-reviewed papers and his research has been supported by the European Commission, UK's Engineering and Physical Sciences Research.
