Megamodeling at Softlang
Softlang-Mega.png

Summary

The Softlang Team at Koblenz conducts research on megamodeling of different kinds. We are foremost interested in megamodels that serve for ontology-based technology documentation. We are also interested in megamodeling in the context of repository management, build management, regression testing, and verification or validation of software transformations. In addition to the term "megamodeling", we also speak of "linguistic architecture" (modeling) in many cases. That is, linguistic architecture is another kind of software architecture focused on language and technology-usage in software systems.
