Domain-Specific Modelling, Theory and Practice

when 24 August 2015 - 28 August 2015
duration 1 week
credits 3 ECTS

Given the plethora of scattered developments (theories, techniques and tools) in the exciting field of Domain-Specific Modelling, practitioners as well as students lack an integrated vision of the model based systems engineering domain. It is exactly the integrated vision on the problems addressed and solutions offered by Domain Specific Modelling (and Modelling Language Engineering) that this Summer School aims to provide. There will be ample opportunities to discuss with other participants and with the lecturers. These lecturers are experienced and active professionals, leaders in their field, whose academic and industrial background covers the broad range of topics of the School.

The event will take place during five days. Theory lectures introducing theoretical/foundational topics will be alternated with tutorials where techniques and tools will be explained hands-on. A small common Case Study will be used across all tutorials to make the coherence between the different topics (language design, model transformation, semantics, model checking, ...) clear. Both the academic and industrial point of view on the most recent advances in the field will be presented. This will highlight current research as well as discuss challenges and open issues (with many hints for future PhD topics).
