This volume contains the proceedings of the Third International Workshop on Model-Driven Enterprise Information Systems (MDEIS) held in conjunction with the 9th International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems (ICEIS) in Madeira, Portugal. The main aim of this workshop is to serve as a forum for researchers and practitioners to meet and to share expertise in Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) and its application to Enterprise Information Systems. The potential benefits of MDA are reduction on development costs, improvement of software quality, reduction of maintenance costs and the support for controlled evolution of IT systems. MDA has been applied in many application areas, such as real-time and embedded systems, and telecommunication systems, and, more recently, to the development and integration of enterprise information systems. The goal of this workshop is to bring together people working on MDA techniques and tools, and applying them on enterprise information
systems, so that they can exchange their experience with the use of MDA, create new ideas, evaluate and improve MDA and spread its use. This year, submissions regarding the combined application of MDA and emerging technologies such as the Semantic Web, Semantic Web Services, ontologies and knowledge representation, were greatly encouraged. We have received 16 paper submissions, from which 9 papers have been accepted for publication in these proceedings and a 30-minutes oral presentation during the workshop. All selected papers are of high quality, and this could only be possible due to the professionalism of our authors, reviewers and program committee members. The selected papers are very good illustrations of different topics that are currently under intense research around Model-Driven Architecture: - MDA and the Semantic WEB - Transformations in MDA. - Aspect-Oriented Approach and MDA, Process Support Software and MDA - Applications of MDA: We would like to take this opportunity to thank the people who have contributed to MDEIS 2007. We thank all authors and reviewers for their valuable contributions to MDEIS 2007, and we wish them a successful continuation of their research. Finally, special thanks to Joachim Filipe and Vitor Pedrosa for their support. We wish all authors and attendees an exciting workshop, and a pleasant stay in the beautiful place of Madeira.
