3rd International Conference on Model & Data Engineering (MEDI 2013)

September 25-27, 2013

Amantea, Calabria, Italy


The Third International Conference on Model & Data Engineering (MEDI 2013) will be held during September 25-27 in Amantea, Calabria, Italy. The main objective of MEDI 2013 is to provide a forum for the dissemination of research achievements and for promoting interaction and collaboration between the model and data engineering research communities. MEDI 2013 provides an international platform for the presentation of research on model and data theory, development of advanced technologies related to models and data, and their advanced applications. This international scientific event, initially created by researchers from Euro-Mediterranean countries, also aims at promoting the creation of scientific networks, projects and faculty/student exchanges.


MEDI 2013 is proud to annunce two well-known Invited Speakers:


Dimitrios Gunopulos, University of Athens, Greece
Gottfried Vossen, University of Munster, Germany

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

Best papers will be invited for submission in a special issue of a recognized international journal.

Paper Submission Detail
Authors are invited to submit research and application papers representing original, previously unpublished work. Papers should be submitted in PDF format. Submissions must conform to Springer's LNCS format and should not exceed 12 pages (including all text, figures, references and appendices). Authors who want to buy extra pages may submit a paper up to 15 pages with the indication that the authors will purchase extra pages if the paper is accepted. Submissions which do not conform to the LNCS format and/or which do exceed 12 pages (or up to 15 pages with the extra page purchase commitment) will be rejected without reviews. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. All accepted papers will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer-Verlag. Duplicate submissions are not allowed. A submission is considered to be a duplicate submission if it is submitted to other conferences/workshops/journals or it has been already accepted to be published in other conferences/workshops/journals. Duplicate submissions will be automatically rejected without reviews. Submissions require explicit consent from all listed authors.
