 INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES conference is hosted by the biggest technical university in the Baltic states – Kaunas University of Technology. First organized as part of "Lithuanian  Science and Industry" conference series in 1995, in Kaunas, Lithuania, the event turned international in 2008 immediately attracting attention from academicians from all over the world. Although years have passed sincethe first iteration of the conference, the original mission remains asrelevant as ever. The 2010 iteration of the event will again be aimed at the promotion of multidisciplinary approaches and methods designed to further simplify the convergence of social and IT requirements as well as accompanying technologies.  And to further encourage such convergence, full length advanced industrial tutorials on Model Driven Development and Software Development Practices by well known practitioners are introduced into the conference agenda for the first time. We kindly invite our old academic friends as well as new contributors to join the debate sharing the knowledge on system analysis and design, hardware and computer networks as well as other relevant topics.

Conference Venue
The Conference will be held at Kaunas University of Technology, Kaunas, Lithuania.
Kaunas with only 360 thousand inhabitants is nevertheless one of the most significant cities of Lithuania. It is not only a city of old traditions, but also a large centre of business and industry. It can also lay claim to be a town of young people with over 40,000 students studying at one of eleven universities here.
Kaunas was always fated to play an important historical and cultural role in Lithuania. In 1408, Magdeburg rights were granted to the city of Kaunas by the privilege of Vytautas the Great. During the early 20th century Kaunas was the home of the Lithuanian Government and the capital of state. However, history tells us that even before this date, the city, situated at the confluence of the rivers Neris and Nemunas, experienced many periods of great prosperity and national importance.
It's hard to name the single most famous feature of Kaunas. From the historic 13th century Kaunas Castle to the romantic City Hall Square, from the macabre Devils' Museum to the galleries of art varying from classic to avant-garde - Kaunas offers something for everybody. The cosy and enigmatic Old Town of Kaunas extends into a vibrant Laisves avenue, where visitors can enjoy the mix of modern and traditional shops, cafes and bars.
Also basketball is synonymous with Kaunas not only because we held the very first official basketball game in Lithuania in 1922, but also because of the famous Zalgiris team and its international superstar Arvydas Sabonis.
If you like live music, look forward to concerts of the International Kaunas Jazz Festival (, which is taking place during the conference week.

 TRACK B: Model-Driven Development
·         Modeling Languages, Platforms, Framework, and Tools
·         Model-Driven Development Methods
·        Case Studies on Applying Model-Driven Development
·         Model Verification and Validation
·         Model Transformations and Code Generation
·         Model Simulation
·         Model Migration
·         Meta-modeling
·         Domain Specific Languages
