The main objective of the conference is to provide a forum for the dissemination of research accomplishments and to promote the interaction and collaboration of research communities issued from modelling and system modelling on the one hand and data and data modelling on the other hand. MEDI 2014 provides an international infrastructure for the presentation of research results and experimentations on models and data theory, development of advanced technologies related to models and data and their advanced applications and case studies. This international scientific event, initiated by researchers from Euro-Mediterranean countries, aims also at promoting the creation of north-south scientific networks, projects and faculty/student exchanges and of other parts of the world as well.

Authors are invited to submit research and application papers representing original, previously unpublished work. Papers should be submitted in PDF or Word 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 thus will be automatically rejected without reviews. Submissions require explicit consent from all listed authors.
Abstract submission: April 14, 2014 Full-paper submission: April 21, 2014 Acceptance notification: June 16, 2014 Camera Ready: July 7, 2014
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 journals (under discussion).
