The Ninth International Conference on Model & Data Engineering (MEDI) will be held from 28 to 31 October 2019 in Toulouse, France. 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’2019 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.

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Authors are invited to submit English-language research and application papers representing original, previously unpublished work.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. One author of an accepted paper must register to MEDI 2019 in order to have the paper published. Each accepted paper must be presented at the conference by one of the authors.

Publication and Special Issues
All accepted papers will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer-Verlag. Best papers will be invited for submission in special issues of the following Journals:
   Journal of Computer Languages (formerly: Computer Languages, Systems and Structures/
                      Journal of Visual Languages and Computing)
