European Conference on Model Driven ArchitectureŽ -
Foundations and Applications

November 7-10, 2005, Nuernberg, Germany

Model-Driven ArchitectureŽ (MDAŽ) is an initiative proposed by the
Object Management Group (OMG, for platform-generic
software development.  It promotes the use of models in the specification,
design, analysis, synthesis, deployment, and evolution of complex software

ECMDA-FA will take place from November 7-10th in Nuernberg, Germany.  This
conference is dedicated to furthering the state of knowledge and fostering
the industrialization of the MDA methodology.  Its focus is on engaging the
key European research and industrial figures in a dialogue which will result
in a stronger more efficient industry, producing more reliable software on
the basis of state-of-the-art research results.

The conference is organized in two tracks dealing with the foundations and
applications of MDA. There will be additional workshops, tutorials, and tools
exhibitions on these subjects.

The programme for the first two days of workshops and tutorials is as follows:

November 7th:

Workshop: Aspect-Based and Model-Based Separation of Concerns in Software Systems
Organisers  Mehmet Aksit, Jean Bezivin, Ella Roubtsova

Workshop: Consistency in Model Driven Engineering (CoMoDE)
Organisers  Ludwik Kuzniarz, Gianna Reggio, Jean Louis Sourrouille

Workshop: A Formal Semantics for UML
Organisers  Manfred Broy, Juergen Dingel, Alan Hartman, Bernhard Rumpe, Bran Selic

Tutorial: MDA at a glance: Benefits and adoption barriers
Organiser  Asier Azaceta
Expertise Level  Introductory

Tutorial: MDE: foundations, standards and tools
An illustration of an open courseware initiative in model engineering.
Organiser  Jean Bezivin
Expertise Level  Intermediate

November 8th:

Workshop on Traceability
Organiser  Jon Oldevik

Workshop: From code centric to model centric software engineering: Practices, Implications and ROI
