Call for papers


The 5th International Conference on Model & Data Engineering (MEDI) will be held from 26 to 28 September 2015 in Rhodes Island, Greece. Previous MEDI events took place at Obidos/Portugal (2011), Poitiers/France (2012), Calabria/Italy (2013), Larnaca/Cyrpus (2014). The main objective of the conference 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. 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.

Information for authors

Authors are invited to submit research and application papers representing original, previously unpublished work. Papers should be submitted in PDF format. Submissions must conform to Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) format and should not exceed 12 pages. Authors who want to buy extra pages may submit a paper up to 16 pages with the indication that the authors will purchase extra pages if the paper is accepted. Submissions which do not conform to the LNCS format and/or which exceed 12 pages (or 16 pages with the extra page purchase commitment) will be rejected without reviews. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. All accepted papers will be published in Springer LNCS series. Duplicate submissions are not allowed.
