Call for Workshops:
10th International Conference on Model and Data Engineering (MEDI 2021)
21 - 23 June 2021, Tallinn, Estonia

The MEDI Main Conference:

The Tenth International Conference on Model & Data Engineering (MEDI) will be held from 21 to 23 June 2021 in Tallinn, Estonia. 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. MEDI 2021 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, also aims at promoting the creation of north-south scientific networks, projects and faculty/student exchanges.

The conference is accompanied by satellite events, including demonstration papers and workshops.


Typically, workshops focus on multiple topics related to model and data engineering. For this edition, we would also like to encourage workshops focusing on practical applications of research in business/industry and on joint projects run by industry and research entities.

The list of workshop topics is not limited to the aforementioned and we encourage representatives of research and business to submit workshop proposals promoting their achievements.
