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

An open source model obfuscator

A simple tool to eliminate sensitive information from your models. One less excuse for industrial partners unwilling to share their models (but still asking us to do relevant research!)

Models in Science

Scientists spend a great deal of time building, testing, comparing and revising models, and much journal space is dedicated to introducing, applying and interpreting them. Read more about the role of models in science.

Goal Structuring Notation – a short introduction

GSN is a simple notation to visualize an argument structure that supports a claim to be true. Here we show you some general concepts in GSN using an example.

One (virtual) model repository to rule them all

My proposal of a virtual federation of existing model repositories as the best way to finally have a useful set of modeling artefacts for the research community
