8-11 June 2011, Beijing - China
3rd International Workshop on Model-Driven
Architecture and Modeling-Driven Software Development - MDA & MDSD 2011
Janis Osis
Riga Technical University

Brief Bio
Janis Osis is professor at Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology at Riga Technical University, Latvia. Since 1965 his research interests are topological modeling of complex systems with applications in technical and medical diagnostics. He is the founder of the theoretical background for topological modeling. Recent fields of interest are object-oriented system analysis, modeling and design, Formal Methods of Software Engineering, Software development within the framework of MDA of business and embedded systems by means of topological functioning model support.
He graduated Latvian State University cum lauda and received diploma of Electrical engineering in electrical systems. After doctoral studies in Sanktpeterburg Electrical University, Russia he obtained his Dr.sc.ing. Degree (Candidate of Science in former USSR equal to PhD) from Kaunas Technological University, Lithuania. After defence of habilitation thesis titled "Diagnostics of Complex systems" he received his Dr.habil.sc.ing. Degree (Doctor of Science in former USSR) in system analysis from Latvian Academy of Sciences. He was visiting researcher at Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of California, Berkeley, USA and Dipartimento di Matematica Pura ed Applicata, Università degli Studi di Padova, Italia.
He is Honorary Member of Latvian Academy of Sciences and Member of the International Editorial Board, Journal Automatic Control and Computer Sciences, Allerton Press, Inc. Riga, New York. He was the President (1992 - 1996) and the Council member (1996 - 2003) of the Latvian National Organization of Automatics.

Brief Bio
Oksana Nikiforova has received engineering science doctor's degree (Dr.sc.ing) in information technologies sector (system analysis, modeling and designing, sub-sector) from the Riga Technical University, Latvia, in 2001.
She is presently a professor at Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology at Riga Technical University, Latvia. She has been on the faculty since 1999. Her current research interests include object-oriented system analysis and modelling especially its issues in the framework of Model Driven Architecture. In these areas she has published extensively and has been awarded several grants. She has participated and managed several research projects related to the system modeling, analysis and design, as well as participated in several industrial software development projects.
She is an editor (1999 - 2009) and a member of editorial board (2009 - present) of Scientific Journal of Riga Technical University.
The workshop is aimed at theoretical and practical aspects of OMG's Model DrivenArchitecture, the Modeling-Driven Software Development, and Model-Driven Engineering as well. The first Workshop "Model - Driven Architecture: Foundations, Practices and Implications (MDA 2009)" was organized in conjunction with the 13th Conference on Advances in Data Base and Information Systems (ADBIS 2009) in Riga (Latvia), the 2nd "Model-Driven Architecture and Modeling Theory-Driven Development - MDA & MTDD 2010" was organized in conjunction with the 5th ENASE 2010 conference in Athens (Greece).
