                                     ECMDA-FA 2009

Fifth European Conference on Model-Driven Architecture Foundations and

                     University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands

                                    23-26 June 2009




Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) is an initiative proposed by the Object
Management Group (OMG) for platform-independent software development. It
promotes the use of models in the specification, design, analysis,
synthesis, deployment, and evolution of complex software systems.

ECMDA-FA is dedicated to advancing the state of knowledge and fostering the
industrialisation of the MDA methodology. Its focus is on engaging key
figures of research and industry, in Europe and elsewhere, in a dialogue
which will result in a stronger, more efficient industry, producing more
reliable software on the basis of state-of-the-art research results. The
2009 conference is again organised in two tracks dealing with the
foundations and applications of MDA. There are additional workshops, tools
and poster exhibitions on these subjects.
