MDD4DRES Summer School

1-5 September, Aber-Wrac'h Registration

About the school

Model-Driven Development (MDD) is now an established paradigm the application of which spans multiple domains. One of the main domains is Distributed Real-Time and Embedded Systems (DRES) where MDD has proven its efficiency.

The advent of Cyber Physical Systems and Internet-of-Things have increased communications between systems and reinforced the trend towards MDD. Multi-paradigm modeling, multi-physical simulation, as well as safety and security concerns are today at the heart of MDD preoccupations and technologies.

In this context, the objective of the MDD4DRES summer school is to provide comprehensive materials which will enable designers to understand the main issues and challenges raised by the requirements inherent in these new systems. In order to provide an opportunity to bring about fruitful exchanges of ideas and practices, the summer school program includes a balanced blend of academic and industrial contributions and participants.

The summer school will take place at the “Centre de la Mer”, Aber Wrach, on the west coast of Brittany, a sumptuous spot, open to the sea and to spirited brainstorming on the subject of MDD.


 Program highlights

The summer school will offer three kinds of sessions:

  • Lectures: presentations on MDD methods, techniques, and technologies are presented in these sessions by academics experts.
  • Industry experience sessions: industry experts present their experience-based views on MDD approaches to developing DRES.
  • Poster and tool sessions: this session is opened to participants and tool vendors to present ongoing research and MDD tools.


Tool/poster session participation

Participants of the summer school are invited to participate to the special session to present a poster on their current research activity or a demonstration of a tool. This session untitled “Live session on tools and posters” will be held on Wednesday.

Participants to poster session / tool demonstrations are invited to submit a 1-2 pages extended abstract briefly describing the content of their poster/demonstration. The abstract will be made available on the web site of the summer school.
