The First International Conference on Model & Data Engineering (MEDI) will be held from 28 to 30 September 2011
in Óbidos – Portugal. The main objective of our 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. MEDI’2011 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.
All accepted papers will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer‐Verlag.
Topics of interests include but not limited to:
Design of General‐purpose Modelling Languages and Related Standards
Model Driven Engineering, Modelling Languages, Meta‐modelling, Model Transformation, Model

Óbidos is a Medieval walled town where time has passed it by. Within the extensive walls there are narrow cobbled
streets, houses painted white with blue or yellow trim, flower boxes and old lamp lights. There are many churches
and chapels among the houses. The castle is located at the highest point. Once the wedding present of a queen, the
preserved medieval town of Óbidos and the surrounding land was always the property of the queens of Portugal.
Encircled by a ring of medieval walls and crowned by the Moorish castle. Inside the walls, which at sunset take on a
golden coloring, one can sense a cheerful medieval ambience of winding streets, old whitewashed houses bordered
with blue or yellow, Manueline embrasures and windows. Óbidos is located about 80 km north of Lisbon.
Besides its material heritage of the past, Óbidos, a melting pot of historical tradition is still today one of the main
jewels of the country. More information about Óbidos, http://bit.ly/obidos_information. Welcome to Óbidos!
Selected conference hotels are located inside the old fort walls.
Conference sessions will be organized along different municipal buildings inside the medieval wall ring, allowing to
participants to enjoy the villa costumes.
