This special interest group focus on model driven (or model based) and architecture centered software engineering techniques and tools, e.g. OMG's MDA (Model Driven Architecture). It is a platform for all interested persons to exchange experiences in the context of workshops, conferences etc. The activities are mainly in Germany.
