Industrial Track

The Industrial Track is an excellent vehicle for companies to advertise and promote their innovative products and services, connect with other companies and researchers and engage in discussions about research and development initiatives. It is also a great platform for enabling the communication of researchers focusing on industry-oriented research with industry.

The Industrial Track to be held in Prague is focused on on Model-based Engineering (MBE) and its applications in various industrial domains such as tele-communication, maritime, automotive, and logistics. The Industrial Track would also like to address other important aspects of applying MBE in practice, including, but not limited to, MBE tools and tool chains, industrial practices, training, technology transfer, standardization, and open source vs. commercial.

This event is held in parallel with a set of related conferences, namely MODELSWARD, BIOSTEC, attracting more than 1100 researchers from more than 60 countries in all continents, creating opportunities for knowledge and technology sharing, and facilitating future collaboration networks involving industrial project partners and interested conference delegates.

Furthermore, a parallel satellite event is being organized to attract European Projects and to stimulate discussions around the new European Framework for supporting R&D, Horizon 2020, which will include the participation of representatives from the European Commission.

The Industrial Track will include the following forms of participation:

  • Lease of a booth (2x2m with a table and chair) for distributing information or for demonstration purposes, which will be free of charge with the registration at the conference of at least one representative of the Company
  • Poster Display
  • Presentation/Demonstration of project results either orally or in other formats
  • Organization of a special session, workshop or a panel/round-table, focused on the company projects and topics of research
  • Tutorial
  • Company Presentation


Sébastien Gérard
Brief Bio
Sébastien Gérard is a CEA LIST senior researcher in software engineering and computer science. He graduated in 1995 from ENSMA (the Superior School of Mechanics and Aeronautics in Poitiers, France) as a mechanical and aeronautics engineer, after which he obtained a doctorate in computer science in 2000. He is currently leading a research team of about 20 engineers at CEA LIST (an arm of the French Atomic Energy Agency, http://www-list.cea.fr/gb/index_gb.htm) within the LISE (Laboratory for Model-based Engineering of real-time and embedded (RT/E) systems). The principal objective of this research of this team is to achieve “correct-by-construction” design of RT/E systems from requirements to implementation”. Through his involvement in a numerous national and international research projects, Dr. Sébastien Gérard has worked with many industrial partners such as Peugeot Citroen, Airbus, ST Microelectronics, EADS, gaining extensive experience and insight into industrial problems and requirements. Dr. Sébastien Gérard is also deeply involved in various standardization activities, and is currently co-chairing both the UML 2 and MARTE (the UML extension for RT/E) standardization task forces. He is also core member of the European network of excellence, ArtistDesign (http://www.artist-embedded.org), where he is a prime on issues related to modeling and standardization. In addition, Dr. Sébastien Gérard is a member of the editorial board of the SoSyM journal, co-founder of the International School on Model-Driven Development for DRES (http://www.mdd4dres.info) and a frequent member of program committees of major technical and scientific conferences.
