Model-driven engineering (MDE) is a paradigm to effectively tame complexity, automate engineering tasks, and support human communication. General-purpose and domain-specific modeling languages allow different stakeholders to express their concerns with more human-oriented concepts than it would be possible with traditional (machine-oriented) programming languages. Modeling languages and MDE are currently leveraged in most applicative domains, from banking to digital printing, and drive the success story of low-code, no-code and other development paradigms. The MDEML track aims at gathering ideas, challenges, and solutions related to MDE and modeling languages.



Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

  • Modeling language engineering (abstract/concrete syntax, semantics, components, modules, modelling language integration, etc.)
  • Foundations of modeling language design, composition, reuse, and evolution
  • Model transformation languages and model transformations
  • Transformations across modeling languages (e.g., for interoperability, analysis, …)
  • Generation of language infrastructures (e.g., concrete syntaxes, editors, collaboration and management tools, … )
  • Tools on MDE and modeling languages (editors, language workbenches, etc.)
  • Comparison of different model-driven language engineering technologies
  • Low-code and/or no-code applications
  • Modeling in emerging domains such as Digital Twin, industry 4.0, smart cities, smart energy networks, internet of things (IoT), cyber-physical systems (CPS), etc
  • Empirical studies on MDE and modeling languages
  • Industrial experience and challenge reports on MDE and modeling languages
