Fourth European Conference on 
Model Driven Architecture Foundations and Applications

ECMDA 2008
Berlin, Germany, June 09 - 13, 2008


Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) 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 systems.

ECMDA is dedicated to furthering the state of knowledge and fostering the industrialisation of the MDA methodology. Its  focus is on engaging the key key figures of European research and industry 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 2008  conference is organised in two tracks of interest dealing with the foundations and applications of MDA. Experience  Reports on MDA tools and their applications are welcomed. There will be additional workshops, tools and poster  exhibitions on these subjects.


Houari Sahraoui, Université de Montréal, Canada on Keeping the Forest in View When Representing and Manipulating Large-Scale Models

Axel Uhl, SAP, Germany on The Evolution of Tools and Languages


Juha-Pekka Tolvanen, MetaCase on Domain-Specific Modeling for Full Code Generation


Andy Schürr, TU Darmstadt, Germany on Model Transformation Engineering - A New Discipline?


The programme of the main conference consists of research sessions on Model Management, Executable Models, Concrete Syntaxes, Aspects and Concerns, and Validation and Testing and of industrial sessions on Model-based Systems Engineering, MDD and SOA, and Surveys on Applying MDD.

The main conference is accompanied by workshops and symposia:

- Workshop on Model-Driven Tool- & Process Integration

- Workshop on Model-based Modernization of Software Systems

- 4th ECMDA Workshop on Traceability

- Workshop on Model-Based Testing in Practice

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

- International Symposium on Quality Engineering for Embedded Systems

The conference is sponsored by IBM, Netfective and Objecteering. It is supported by the European Association of Software Science and Technology (EASST) and by the GI 
GI-QFAM LogoJoint Interest Group on Modeling.

The detailed program is given at

We are looking forward to seeing you in Berlin!
