Jean Bézivin is professor of Computer Science at the University of Nantes, France. He presently leads at Ecole des Mines de Nantes the “AtlanMod” INRIA team specializing on modeling technologies for software production, operation and evolution. AtlanMod is one international leading team in the research area of Model Driven Engineering (MDE). Jean Bézivin got a Master degree from the University of Grenoble and a Ph.D. from the University of Rennes. Since 1980 he has been very active in Europe in the object-oriented community, starting the ECOOP series of conference, the TOOLS series of conferences, and more recently the MoDELS/<> and the ICMT series of conferences. He founded in 1979, at the University of Nantes, one of the first Master programs in Software Engineering entirely devoted to Object Technology (Data Bases, Concurrency, Languages and Programming, Analysis and Design, etc.). His present research interests include model engineering and more especially the techniques of model transformation applied to data engineering and to software forward and reverse engineering. He has published many papers and organized tutorials and workshops in the domains of concurrency, simulation, object-oriented programming, and model-driven engineering. On the subjects of model-driven engineering and MDA™, he has recently been leading the OFTA industrial group in France, co-animating a CNRS specific action and the Dagstuhl seminar #04101. He is a member of OMG and participates to different working groups including ADTF and ADM. He was a guest lecturer at the 2003 summer school of CEA/INRIA/EDF and has also given several tutorials at several international conferences. He is an associate editor of several journals like SoSym (Springer), JOT (Journal of Object Technology) or IBIS Journal and a member of the ECOOP, UML/MODELS, ICMT and TOOLS steering committees. He was co-chair of the ECOOP’2006 conference organized in Nantes, co-organizer of the Model Transformation track at the ACM SAC’2006 conference in Dijon and PC chair of TOOLS’2007 in Zurich. He has been invited to give guest talks at several conferences or workshops like ICEIS’2001 (Setubal), BDA’2001 (Agadir), AOPDCS’2002 (Vienna), JFIA’2002(Lille), AFADL’2003 (Rennes), UML’2003 (San Francisco), WCRE’2004 (Delft), NetObjects’2005 (Erfurt), JAOO’2007 (Aarhus), SLE’2009 (Denver), JISBD’2009 (San Sebastian), MDDay’2009 (Paris), etc. He got an IBM Eclipse innovation grant award in 2004. He is in charge for INRIA of several industrial collaboration projects including the ModelWare and Modelplex European IP projects. His group (AtlanMod) is involved in France in several research projects in model engineering like FLFS, IDM++, Happy/Gaja, Edona, Lambda, Galaxy, OPEES, CESAR, etc.
