Panel #1: "MODELS: should I stay or should I go?" Wednesday Sep 30, 3:30 p.m. - Ballroom C

Moderator: Jean-Marc Jézéquel (INRIA and University of Rennes 1)


  • Steve Easterbrook (University of Toronto)
  • Jeff Gray (University of Alabama)
  • Bran Selic (Malina)
  • Friedrich Steimann (Fernuniversität in Hagen)

Is it worth continuing working with models, doing research on Models, coming to the MODELS conference? On the one side MDE/MDA is no longer an over-hyped buzzword, on the other side more and more people are working with models, DSLs, MDE (albeit not always under these very names, e.g. model-based science). Is the fact that MDE is slowly fading into the background a proof of success? Or is it just another instance of the well documented "technology hype curve"? Is there still enough excitement to be worth continuing to meet under the umbrella of MODELS?


Panel #2: "Multi-Paradigm Modelling for Cyber-Physical Systems", Thursday Oct 1, 1:30 p.m. (this is correct, the time was wrong before)- Ballroom C

Organizer: Vasco Amaral (Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal and vice-chair of the MPM4CPS EU COST action)

Moderator: Thomas Kuhne (Victoria University, NZ)


  • Gabor Karsai (Vanderbilt)
  • Ahsan Qamar (Ford)
  • Benoit Combemale (INRIA)
  • Bran Selic (Malina)
  • Vasco Amaral (UNLisbon)
  • Hans Vangheluwe (UA/McGill)

In virtually any area of human activity, truly complex, designed systems, known as Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), are emerging. These multi-disciplinary systems deeply integrate collaborating physical, software, and network parts. This panel will bring together experts from industry and academy on both Model Driven Engineering and CPS areas, in order to discuss the R&D priorities and challenges from CPS that we foresee solvable with multi-paradigm modeling.
