Abstract

After more than a decade of research in Model-Driven Engineering (MDE), the state-of-the-art and the state-of-the-practice in MDE has significantly progressed. Therefore, during this workshop we raised the question of how to proceed next, and we identified a number of future challenges in the field of MDE. The objective of the workshop was to provide a forum for discussing the future of MDE research and practice. Seven presenters shared their vision on the future challenges in the field of MDE. Four breakout groups discussed scalability, consistency and co-evolution, formal foundations, and industrial adoption, respectively. These themes were identified as major categories of challenges by the participants. This report summarises the different presentations, the MDE challenges identified by the workshop participants, and the discussions of the breakout groups.
