The MDSE Book has been collaboratively written by Marco Brambilla (Politecnico di Milano), Jordi Cabot (ICREA and UOC), and Manuel Wimmer (Vienna University of Technology).

Marco Brambilla is currently professor of Software Engineering at Politecnico di Milano (Italy). He is also a shareholder and scientific advisor at WebRatio, the company that produces the MDD tool WebRatio, based on IFML, a domain-specific language for UI modelling standardised by the OMG. He is also founder of Fluxedo. In addition, he is one of the inventors of IFML and WebML languages. His interests include conceptual models, tools, and methods for development of Web and mobile apps, Web services, crowdsourcing, user interaction, business processes,  social media and social content analysis. He has been visiting researcher at Cisco Systems (San José, CA) and at UCSD (University of California, San Diego). He has been visiting professor at Dauphine University, Paris. He is coauthor of the book Designing Data-Intensive Web Applications (Morgan-Kauffman, 2003), the IFML book (Morgan-Kauffman and OMG press, 2014), several other books, and more than 100 scientific articles published in conferences and journals. He is active in teaching and industrial consulting projects on MDSE, Domain-specific Languages (DSL), BPM, SOA, and enterprise architectures.

Jordi Cabot is an ICREA Research Professor at Internet Interdisciplinary Institute, a Research center of the Open University of Catalonia (UOC) where he is leading the SOM Research Lab.
Previously, he has been a faculty member at the École des Mines de Nantesand team leader of the AtlanMod Research group on an Inria International Chair and worked in Barcelona (Technical University of Catalonia ), Toronto (University of Toronto ) and Milano ( Politecnico di Milano ). His research falls into the broad area of systems and software engineering, especially promoting the rigorous use of software models and engineering principles in all software engineering tasks while keeping an eye on the most unpredictable element in any project: the people involved in it.

Manuel Wimmer
is a postdoctoral researcher in the Business Informatics Group (BIG) at the Vienna University of Technology (Austria). He was guest professor in the Software Engineering Research Group at the Philipps-University Marburg (Germany) and research associate at the University of Málaga (Spain). He was involved in several research projects in the area of model-driven (Web) engineering, model versioning, and model transformation which resulted in numerous scientific publications in international journals and conferences. Since 2005, he has taught the model-driven
engineering course (about 200 students each year) at the Vienna University of Technology and holds several industry seminars
on how to efficiently apply model-driven engineering in practice.
