Janis Osis
Riga Technical University

Brief Bio
Janis Osis is full professor at the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology at Riga Technical University, Latvia. Since 1965 his research focuses on topological modeling of complex systems with applications in technical and medical diagnostics. He developed the theoretical background for topological modeling. Re-cent fields of interest are object-oriented system analysis, modeling and design, For-mal Methods of Software Engineering, Software development within the framework of MDA of business and embedded systems by means of topological functioning model support. Janis graduated at the Latvian State University with a diploma (cum laude) of Elec-trical engineering in electrical systems. After doctoral studies at Sankt Petersburg Electrical University, Russia, he obtained his from Kaunas Technological University, Lithuania. With his habilitation thesis "Diagnostics of Complex systems" he received his in System Analysis from the Latvian Academy of Sciences. He was visiting researcher at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of California, Berkeley, USA and at the Dipartimento di Matematica Pura ed Applicata, Universita' degli Studi di Padova, Italia. Janis is a Honorary Member of the Latvian Academy of Sciences and an International Editorial Board Member of the Journal Automatic Control and Computer Sciences, Allerton Press, Inc. Riga, New York. He was the President (1992 -1996) and a Coun-cil member (1996 – 2003) of the Latvian National Organization of Automatics.

Heinrich C. Mayr
Alpen-Adria-Universitaet Klagenfurt

Brief Bio
Heinrich C. Mayr received his doctorate in applied mathematics from the University of Grenoble (France) in 1975. Until 1983 he was an assistant professor at the University of Karlsruhe (Germany) and a visiting professor in the domain of database technology and information systems at several universities. From 1984-1990 he was CEO of a German software company, since 1990 he is full professor of informatics at the Alpen-Adria-Universitaet Klagenfurt, Austria. For 10 years he was the Dean of the "Faculty of Economics, Business Administration and Infor-matics". Since 2006 he is the Rector of the AAU. Heinrich's research is documented by more than 160 publications and includes re-quirements modeling, information systems design methodologies, natural language processing in requirements analysis, knowledge management and case based reasoning in the context of service systems, and software project management. Heinrich has been, among others, Vice President of the Council of European Profes-sional In-formatics Societies (CEPIS), President of the Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI), member of the board of the Austrian Computer society (OCG). Currently he is editor in chief of the GI-Edition "Lecture Notes in Informatics", coun-cil member of the Carinthian College of Education, of Carinthia Tech Institute, Fellow of GI, and chairman of the scientific council of the Software Internet Cluster SIC.


The workshop focuses on theoretical and practical aspects of OMG’s Model Driven Architecture, Modeling-Driven Software Development, and Model-Driven Engineering. It continues a successful series of former events: The 1st Workshop “Model – Driven Architecture: Foundations, Practices and Implications (MDA2009)” 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&MTDD2010)” was organized in conjunction with the 5th ENASE 2010 conference in Athens (Greece). The 3rd - “Model-Driven Architecture and Modeling Driven Software Development MDA&MDSD 2011) – took place in Beijing (China) in conjunction with the 6th ENASE 2011.
