About MODELS conference

Contributions related to all aspects of modeling, modeling languages and model-based engineering are cordially invited to the 24th edition of MODELS, in Fukuoka, Japan virtually 10-15 October 2021.

MODELS is the premier conference series for model-based software and systems engineering. Since 1998, MODELS has covered all aspects of modeling, from languages and methods, to tools and applications. Attendees of MODELS come from diverse backgrounds, including researchers, academics, engineers and industrial professionals. MODELS 2021 is a forum for participants to exchange cutting-edge research results and innovative practical experiences around modeling and model-based software and systems.

This year’s edition will provide an opportunity for the modeling community to further advance the foundations of modeling, and come up with innovative applications of modeling in emerging areas of cyber-physical systems, embedded systems, socio-technical systems, cloud computing, big data, machine learning, security, open source, and sustainability.

In 2021, MODELS has a special theme on “Modeling for Human-AI Collaborative Society”. We especially encourage contributions where model-driven engineering intersects with research and applications on, not exclusively, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, smart cities, robot ethics and value-based Software Engineering.

We invite you to join us at MODELS 2021, Fukuoka, Japan virtually, and to help shape the modelling methods and technologies of the future!

Update on the COVID-19 situation (MODELS going virtual)

Dear modeling community,

The 24th edition of MODELS (MODELS 2021) will be held fully virtually, from October 10 - 15, 2021.

Due to continued uncertainties with the pandemic and delays in vaccination, the Steering Committee and Organizing Committee of MODELS 2021 have taken the decision to run the conference fully virtually.

Thanks for your understanding that physical travel to Japan may be infeasible for many MODELS participants in October, and hybrid conferences are more complex to organize.

We will provide further information on the platforms we will use and the necessary logistics for participation.

Best regards,

Zhenjiang Hu, Tomoji Kishi, and Naoyasu Ubayashi, General chairs of MODELS 2021
