TemporalEMF adds native temporal support for models. Models are automatically treated as temporal models and can be subjected to temporal queries to retrieve the model contents at different points in time. Behind the scenes, the history of a model is transparently stored in a NoSQL database.
The first step in refactoring modeling technology is to understand and tame language complexity. This post proposes several solutions for that, for instnace, the definition of alternative notations for the same conceptual language.
Modelling is a useful technique for shaping, exploring, documenting, understanding and communicating artefacts of many kinds, and not only software. ConML is a conceptual modelling language for non-experts in information technologies and especially suited to serve non-software modeling domains.
Have you ever thought about using social networks and chatbots for collaborative modeling? Well, this is now possible. Read how you can built your models using natural language discussions on twitter and telegram
Overview of what conceptual modeling is today and what are the perspectives that will make it more and more relevant in our society
Read about the benefits of organizing a modeling barcamp in your city
Our approach for modeling gamification process and its application to the learning of modeling itself with examples for UML and SQL. Implemented on top of Papyrus.
An Eclipse/EMF based tool to model optimization and planning problems. MOPLAF provides database and solver integration components for minimizing the code needed to generate and execute the modeled problem.
A new approach to bring the benefits of version control to models, implemented in the MetaEdit+ tool
To talk about the Eclipse modeling ecosystem, we are joined today by Gaël Blondelle, Director of European Ecosystem Development at the Eclipse Foundation.
OpenPonk is a free and open source experimental (meta)modeling platform built in the Pharo live environment aiming to create a live, programmable modeling platform for both serious work and fooling around.
First workshop ever focused on discussing the grand challenges in modeling and model-driven engineering. Don't miss it!
Looking for an alternative to the "standard" Java-based Eclipse Modeling Framework? Try this Python implementation of EMF with an emphasis on modeling flexibility and scripting (e.g. to write model transformations)

Ten thngs to keep in mind when mixing modeling and big data. Modeling is as important as ever when dealing with big data but it must be adapted
Few solutions target UML to NoSQL code-generation and even less consider OCL constraints. We present a UML/OCL transformation to Blueprints, an abstraction layer on top of a variety of graph databases
Sirius is an (Eclipse-based) open Source technology that you can use to easily create a customized modeling workbench. Learn more about what Sirius can do for you and do not miss the free SiriusCon conference coming up next month
We propose a data distribution algorithm for declarative model transformation based on static analysis of relational transformation rules.
How to speed up the access and queries on large models thanks to our language (and execution environment) to define prefetching/caching plans for specific modeling scenarios
Model-driven engineering for the 2nd year in a row got zero papers accepted at the Int. Conf. on Software Engineering. Is this normal?
