The Eight International Conference on Model & Data Engineering (MEDI) will be held from 24 to 26 October 2018 in Marrakesh, Morocco. Its main objective is to provide a forum for the dissemination of research accomplishments and to promote the interaction and collaboration between the models and data research communities. MEDI’2018 provides an international platform for the presentation of research on models and data theory, development of advanced technologies related to models and data and their advanced applications. This international scientific event, initiated by researchers from Euro-Mediterranean countries, aims also at promoting the creation of north-south scientific networks, projects and faculty/student exchanges.


Specific areas of interest to MEDI 2018 include but are not limited to:

Modelling and Models Engineering

-       Modelling languages and related standards
-       Modelling in software and complex system engineering
-       Formal methods, analysis, verification & validation
-       Model-based testing and performance analyses

-       Heterogeneous modelling, model integration, interoperability, model transformation
-       Collaborative modelling and model repositories
-       Models as services and models monitoring
-       Modelling for reuse, dependability and maintainability
-       Models for Big Data & NoSql databases

Data Engineering

-       New models and architectures for databases
-       Heterogeneous data, data Integration, Interoperability
-       Data warehouses, OLAP, data mining and Analytics
-       Extending Data Warehousing Technology
-       Database system Internals, performance analysis, self-tuning benchmarking and testing
-       Database security, personalization, recommendation
-       Web databases, ontology-based databases
-       Service based data management
-       Service oriented applications
-       Urbanization of database applications

Applications and tooling

-       Industry transfer, experiences
-       Applications of modelling for Data Management
-       Modelling tools and experimentation
-       Lessons learned and reports related to models/data engineering

Submission Guidelines and Instructions

Authors are invited to submit English-language research and application papers representing original, previously unpublished work. Duplicate submissions are not allowed. Papers must be submitted as a single PDF document, via the Easychair system ( Submissions must conform to Springer's LNCS style (Latex style only for camera-ready papers) and should not exceed 14 pages. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. The program committee may decide to accept a submission as a short paper if it reports interesting results, but does not justify a publication as a full paper. All accepted papers including short papers will be published in Springer LNCS series. An author of an accepted paper must register to MEDI 2018 in order to have the paper published. Each accepted paper must be presented at the conference by one of the authors.

All accepted papers will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer-Verlag.
