Modeling Systems plays an important role in todays software development and evolution. Modeling provides goal-oriented abstractions in all phases of software development, which requires deep knowledge on modeling techniques and broad experiences in applying these techniques. Today, Software Engineering is supported by various modeling techniques, providing modeling languages, modeling language definition technologies, and model transformation technologies. Industry and academia successfully realized expressive modeling and meta modeling languages and mature tools for the practical application.

The Educators' Symposium at MODELS focusses on discussing teaching these technologies to software engineers at universities and software industries. Although most computer science curricula include some education in modeling technologies and therefore provide the basic building blocks for modeling, meta modeling, and model transformation, the whole spectrum of modeling in software engineering is rarely captured.

The 7th edition of this symposium will address approaches
  • to teach modeling and meta modeling foundations
  • to teach model driven software development and evolution approaches
  • to integrate model driven technologies into modern computer science curricula, to students in software engineering programs, and to experienced software developers in industries.

We invite contributions from instructors, researchers, and practitioners from both, academia and industry interested in modeling education and using modeling in software engineering training.
