Over the course of the past decades, software engineering has reached a level of maturity that requires an ever greater use of modeling. For over a decade, the MODELS conference has served as the premier venue for the exchange of innovative technical ideas and experiences relating to the use of model-based approaches in the development of complex software systems. During this time, many of its keynote speakers have pointed out the critical role that education plays in expanding the use of models in software development. To that end, this Master Class, organized conjointly with the MODELS conference, offers its participants a set of carefully selected lectures dealing with various aspects of modeling and with a particular focus on domain-specific languages. The objective is to provide each attendee with sufficient information to understand the main issues and challenges in the use of modeling and domain-specific languages, and also to have a clear picture of the most recent advances in the field.
All of our lecturers are recognized experts in model-based approaches with outstanding pedagogical skills. The master class program comprises a balanced mix of academic and industrial contributions. The academic lecturers will provide an overview of their research themes, including descriptions of the state of the art as well as an outline of emerging trends and challenges. The contributions of the industrial lecturers will focus on results achieved in the practical application of modeling in industrial contexts.
The master class is envisaged as a forum for exchange between its participants, and includes hands-on experience classes and poster sessions that are open to all attendees. The school will take place in Oslo, in the three days preceding the start of the MODELS conference.
