Call For Workshops

The MEDI Main Conference:


The Eight International Conference on Model & Data Engineering (MEDI) will be held from 24 to 26 October 2018 in Marrakesh, Morocco. 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’2018 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.

The conference is accompanied by satellite events, including demonstration papers and workshops.

Workshops


Typically, workshops focus on multiple topics related to model and data engineering. For this edition, we would encourage also workshops focusing on practical applications of research in business/industry and on joint projects run by industry and research entities.

The list of workshop topics is not limited to the aforementioned and we encourage representatives of research and business to submit workshop proposals promoting their achievements.
