Title: Constructing Domain Specific Modelling Languages for Model Driven Engineering.

When: 21/07/2016 11:00 am

Where: Room B

Abstract: Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) is a Software Engineering paradigm that promotes an active use of models and transformations throughout all phases of software development. Hence, models are used to specify, test, simulate and generate code for the final application. The rationale of MDE is that models have a higher level of abstraction than code, with less accidental details, which promises higher levels of quality and productivity. These models are frequently specified using Domain-Specific Modelling Languages (DSMLs) capturing the abstractions within a given domain in a concise and intuitive way.

In this talk we will first introduce the main concepts of MDE, and then we will discuss several approaches to build DSMLs focussing on tools developed by our research group (http://www.miso.es).
