Vasa – the ship built without models that sank

Another example of why modeling is so important. A simulation of the ship models would have prevented it from sinking in its first trip

What would you ask Richard Soley (OMG Chairman & CEO) ?

OMG is the most influential organization in the modeling world. Imagine you had the chance to meet his chairman and ceo. How would you react?

Slides of our work on EMF Views – A View Mechanism for Integrating Heterogeneous Models presented

Is model-based science like model-based engineering? – The case of climate models

Lessons learnt after observing how scientits develop their climate models (and how we could help them) by Steve Easterbrook

Recent developments in Cloud modeling – CloudMDE 2015

Summary of the CloudMDE workshpo where we discussed the latest research results regarding the intersection of cloud and modeling / MDE

Modeling Community: Why Model?

Why isn't modelling common place?. In this post I identify five main reasons we need to address to make modeling mainstream.

EMF Views – A View Mechanism for Integrating Heterogeneous Models

Modeling complex systems involves dealing with several heterogeneous and interrelated models defined using a variety of languages. Similarly to the concept of views in databases, we introduce EMF Views an approach for defining views on potentially heterogeneous models.

What is Cloudfier and why you may want to use it

Ever heard of Cloudfier? It is a tool for developing business applications based on executable models. But why would you want to do that? Keep reading!

A Lightweight Metamodel Extension Mechanism

Using virtual models to transparently offer metamodel extensions that better adapt to your always evolving needs

Un-modeling, because modeling is dead

Marco Brambilla claims that modeling should be hidden under the hood. The challenge is not to show off modeling but the contrary to hide it so that users can benefit from it with limited exposure
