MEDI2022

11th International Conference on Model and Data Engineering *** 21-24 OF NOV 2022*** Cairo, Egypt


MEDI 2022 - Call for Papers

MEDI has never been organized in the middle east;

for the 11th edition MEDI will especially be hosted by Egypt:

the place where huge history meets human civilization

Organized by: Nile University (Egypt)

Overview

The Eleventh International Conference on Model & Data Engineering (MEDI) will be held from 21 to 24 November 2022 in Cairo, Egypt. 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. MEDI2022 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 Middle eastern countries, aims also at promoting the creation of north-south scientific networks, projects and faculty/student exchanges.

Topics of interest

Specific areas of interest to MEDI2022 include but are not limited to:

  • Modelling and Models Engineering

    • Modelling languages and related standards

    • Modelling in software and complex system engineering

Final (accepted) paper submissions guidelines

  • Follow strictly the instructions to authors to prepare your final version, with the right template; (Please use the guidelines at https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines)

  • Prepare a folder Paper#N (with your paper number), containing:

    • The camera ready (pdf) version of your paper;

    • The LNCS consent-to-publish filled and signed; (fill in the editors field with the conference co-chairs' names);

    • A source folder containing all your source and image files (with no latex compilation errors; or other format accepted by the Publisher)

  • The archive of this folder Paper#N should be uploaded at the address/url sent to you in a specific mail.


Submission Guidelines and Instructions

Authors are invited to submit English-language research and application papers representing original, previously unpublished work. Duplicate submissions are not allowed. Papers must be submitted as a single PDF document, via the Easychair system.

Submissions must conform to Springer's LNCS style (Latex style only for camera-ready papers) and should not exceed 14 pages. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition.

The program committee may decide to accept a submission as a short paper if it reports interesting results but does not justify a publication as a full paper.

As for the previous edition of MEDI, all accepted papers including short papers will be published in Springer LNCS series. The book metrics available on SpringerLink to previous MEDI proceedings, https://link.springer.com/conference/medi give details on the number of citations, downloads, and readers at paper level and at book level.

One author of an accepted paper must register to MEDI 2022 in order to have the paper published. Each accepted paper must be presented at the conference by one of the authors.


Publication and Special issue

All accepted papers will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer-Verlag.

Best papers will be invited for submission in special issues of well-ranked Journals:

To Be Announced *** under negotiation ***
