The Papyrus Industry Consortium had a significant presence at the ACM/IEEE 20th International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems (MODELS 2017), held from Sunday, September 17, 2017 through Friday, September 22 in Austin, Texas, U.S.A..
The Consortium was a GOLD sponsor of the event and had a booth with posters from several of its members. It also sponsored an event at the Easy Tiger pub near the conference hotel.
The conference was a great opportunity to meet many academic and industrial members of the MODELS community, and spread the word about the Papyrus ecosystem and the Papyrus IC. Members and participants of the consortium presented keynotes, conference and workshop papers and tutorials, and organized several workshops.
Prof. Juergen Dingel from Queen’s University gave a very well-received keynote of the EXE workshop, titled “UML-RT and Papyrus-RT: Towards an Open-Source MDE Tooling Infrastructure for the Internet of Things.”
The two tutorials on Papyrus and Papyrus-RT, “Embedded and reactive systems development with UML-RT and Papyrus-RT” by Nicolas Hili, Juergen Dingel (Queen’s University), Ernesto Posse (Zeligsoft) and “Developing Domain-specific Modeling Tools with Papyrus” by Philip Langer (EclipseSource), Florian Noyrit (CEA) and Rémi Schneckenburger (CEA), where also quite well-received.
The Papyrus IC Research/Academia committee has begun planning a Papyrus event for next year’s conference which will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark. We hope to see you there!
