) Dates of the course: Fall 2011 – (16 weeks)
The reading group will take place once a week. The participants will decide on an exact weekday
Participation: Two hours per week, per meeting
Preparation: Two hours per meeting. Three more hours for preparation of a presentation Course description
Model-Driven Software Development is a very broad field in between parser, compiler and interpreter construction, programming language design, graph theory, and database design.
The purpose of this course is to get an overview of important fundamental research papers, to get a basic insight in the field, and to get an idea about trends in the MDSD community. We try to set some focus on inter-‐related models and meta-‐models. However, the current reading list on the course page serves as basis and is open to modifications according to participants’ interests.
This course is a reading group. This means that all participants will prepare for each meeting by reading the corresponding papers and reflecting on them. Furthermore, each participant is expected to present two papers in course of this reading group and to host a discussion on its contents.
The reading group will have an introductory meeting, where the participants discuss and decide the organizational formalities, i.e., meeting times, schedule, etc. We will discuss the participants’ expectations, further reading proposals and agree on a presentation schedule.
The reading group itself will take place once a week and will be structured as described above.
After completing the reading list we will have an evaluation meeting with the participants, evaluating if the expectations have been met and if the reading group should continue with new but related contents. Prerequisites
The reading group has no prerequisites. However, it is an advantage to have an idea about context-free grammars, programming languages, and modelling basics. Exam
The reading group will not have an exam. Students are evaluated by active participation, preparation of two paper presentations, the presentation itself, and by formulating a set of interesting research questions related to their paper presentation, which in turn are used as a foundation for discussion.
