Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) is one of the most popular model-based approaches to facilitate the synthesis of application programs from domain specific models using model transformation. One of the most popular model transformation techniques is graph transformation based on graph rewriting. Graph transformations have a strong mathematical background, but it requires exponential time in the size of the host model and the rewriting pattern, which is not always acceptable. Our research focuses on creating a distributed graph transformation solution to accelerate the execution of these transformations. This paper presents the basic ideas of our approach including the introduction of the theoretical basis of the solution and an architectural overview of a concrete implementation.
