Dutch Symposium

The Dutch Symposium is over! Thank you all for the participation.


When:    27 October 2017 (Friday)
Where:   Wageningen University of Research, Wageningen, The Netherlands
Hollandseweg 1, Wageningen
De Leeuwenborch
Kamer C70

Join us to discuss the state-of-the-art for Model Management and Analytics, together with a multi-disciplinary group of researchers and experts from Dutch high tech companies.

Registration: The symposium is for free, but registration is mandatory. Interested participants, please contact us (o.babur@tue.nl).


We aim to share related knowledge across different technical spaces. With model management and analytics as the focus, there will be two main tracks:

  • Software and Systems Modelling — Model-Driven Engineering, Model-Based Systems Engineering, etc.
  • Business Process Modelling — Process Mining, Workflow Management, etc.
