Janis Osis
Riga Technical University

Brief Bio
Janis Osis is Professor at Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology at Riga Technical University, Latvia. He obtained his Dr.sc.ing. Degree from Kaunas Technological University, Lithuania. After defence of habilitation thesis titled “Diagnostics of Complex systems” he received his Dr.habil.sc.ing. Degree 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, Universita’ degli Studi di Padova, Italia. His research interests are topological modeling of complex systems with applications in technical and medical diagnostics. Recent fields of interest are object-oriented system development, formal methods of software engineering, topological UML modeling, model driven software development (including the OMG standard of MDA) by means of topological functioning model support. Since 1998 he is Honorary Member of Latvian Academy of Sciences.
Vicente Garcia Diaz
Oviedo University

Brief Bio
Vicente García Díaz is an associate professor in the Computer Science Department of the University of Oviedo. He has a PhD from the University of Oviedo in computer engineering. His research interests include model-driven engineering, domain-specific languages, technology for learning and entertainment, project risk management, software development processes and practices. He has graduated in Prevention of Occupational Risks and is a Certified Associate in Project Management through the Project Management Institute.
Gundars Alksnis
Riga Technical University
Brief Bio
Gundars Alksnis is a docent at the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology at Riga Technical University, Latvia. He has received Dr.sc.ing. in 2008 in the field of Information Technologies. He has been a part of the faculty since 2005, but before that had worked in the industry. His research interests include problem domain modelling, application lifecycle management, service oriented computing and formalization of software development towards disciplined approach. He likes to teach IT to the students and keeps up with the trends in the software development industry. He has authored or co-authored 17 research papers and is a member of IEEE Computer Society and Association of Computing Machinery.


The special session focuses on theoretical and practical aspects of OMG's Model-Driven Architecture, Modeling-Driven Software Development, Model-Driven Engineering, and other Model-Driven Innovation for Software Engineering related topics. It also aims to bring together academics and researchers to share and discuss on Domain-Specific Languages based on models.

Topics of Interest
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Computation Independent Model: knowledge model (pre-CIM), business model, business requirements
  • Formalization of deriving use-cases from the CIM-business model
  • Automatic and semi-automatic transformation from CIM to PIM
  • Modeling theory-driven development of software
  • Reconciling software requirements and architectures within MDA
  • Modeling formalization of MDA's software development
  • Model transformation and code generation
  • Model based techniques to guarantee the quality and efficiency of software development
  • Domain modeling approaches in information systems engineering
  • Model-Driven domain modeling, analysis and software development
  • Domain-Specific Modeling Languages (DSMLs)
  • Domain-Specific Languages based on models
  • Language usability, adoption and development environments
  • Abstract and concrete syntax for models
  • Internal and external Domain-Specific Language Models for software product lines
  • Models for SOA and web service design MDA-based distributed real-time and embedded systems
  • Innovations and improvements of MDA MDA tools
  • Round-trip engineering Prototyping Testing, verification and debugging Metrics for models
  • Foundations, including formal methods, semantics and theory
  • Industry standards and regulation
  • High-level frameworks and high-performance computing
  • Teaching MDE and using MDE in teaching
  • Trade-offs in MDE and MDA adoption
  • Examples of successful MDE-based projects
