*** Call for Papers - MODELS 2010 ***

ACM/IEEE 13th International Conference on
Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems
October 3-8, 2010
Oslo, Norway
http://models2010.ifi.uio.no

Important dates
***************
Foundations and Applications Papers:
Abstract: April 18, 2010
Full Paper: May 3, 2010
Workshop Proposals: March 31, 2010
Tutorial Proposals: April 18, 2010

The MODELS Conference Series
****************************
.... is devoted to model-based development for software and systems
engineering, covering all categories of modeling languages, methods,
tools, and their applications. Engineering models have long been used
in the development of complex systems and the approach is also
becoming more prevalent in the design of modern software systems.
Methodologies and tools are emerging and applied successfully in
practice. They create and manipulate such models starting with the
earliest phases of development through to implementation and testing.
The MODELS series of conferences is the premier venue for the exchange
of innovative technical ideas and experiences relating to model-based
approaches in the development of complex systems. To provide a broader
forum for reporting on scientific progress as well as experiences and
issues stemming from practical application of model-based methods, the
2010 conference has two distinct tracks:
* Foundations track
* Applications track
Papers in each track will be evaluated by separate program committees
based on criteria appropriate to that track.
All accepted submissions of both the Foundations and Application
tracks will be published as one conference proceedings in the Lecture
Notes in Computer Science.

The Foundation Track
********************
Over the years model-based development has gained rapidly increasing
popularity across various engineering disciplines. Numerous efforts
resulted in the invention of concepts, languages, and tools for the
definition, analysis, transformation, and extension of domain-specific
modeling languages as well as general-purpose modeling language
standards. Problems in this domain span multiple disciplines and have
to be addressed by collaborative research activities spanning domains
such as industrial automation, business engineering, hardware/software
co-design, real-time system development, Web 2.0 application design,
and so forth. A primary objective of the Foundations track of MODELS
is to build a forum for exchange and discussion of new research
results dedicated to advancing the state-of-the-art of model-based
development in general. Topics of interest include but are not limited
to:
* Development of domain-specific modeling languages
* Design of general-purpose modeling languages and related standards
* Definition of the syntax and semantics of modeling languages
* Tools and meta-tools for modeling languages and model-based
development
* Definition and usage of model transformation and generation
approaches
* New methodologies/frameworks/processes for model-driven development
* Development of systems engineering and modeling-in-the-large
concepts
* Proposals of new model quality assurance techniques (analysis,
testing, verification)
* Integration of modeling languages and tools (hybrid multi-modeling
approaches)
* Evolution of modeling languages and models
* New modeling paradigms and formalisms

The Applications Track
**********************
As with any emerging technical discipline, model-based engineering
approaches to software and system development give rise to a unique
set of challenges related to practical application. These include a
very diverse list of issues such as problems of scaling to
multi-domain and geographically distributed teams, difficulties of
integrating new methods and tools into legacy environments, resistance
to culture change, and coping with immature technologies.
Nevertheless, there are numerous practical examples of industrial
application of model-based engineering in which such problems have
been overcome, resulting in successful systems that clearly
demonstrate the viability and the advantages of model-based methods.
Unfortunately, there is still insufficient awareness among many
practitioners of such results and the potential of these methods for
delivering major increases in productivity and product quality.
A primary objective of the MODELS applications track is to provide a
realistic and verifiable picture of the current state-of-the-practice
of model-based engineering. In addition to such experience reports,
papers that describe innovative solutions and concepts stemming from
practical application of model-based methods and tools in industrial,
business and science-driven settings are deemed highly relevant to
this track. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
* Introducing model-based approaches into organizations
* Experience stories in general (successful and unsuccessful)
* How to scale modeling to large combinations of users, viewpoints or
workflows
* Issues related to limitations, gaps and mismatches in current
modeling standards
* Engineering and managing sets of modeling languages
* Integrating models into business environments such as development or
sales
* Experience with model-based engineering tools and traceability
to/from models

Submission Process
******************
The paper length is limited to 15 pages. Paper submission must conform
to the Springer LNCS formatting guidelines (see
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs).
All submissions must be original, unpublished, and not submitted
simultaneously for publication elsewhere. They will undergo a thorough
review process by a track-specific committee comprising leading
experts from academia and industry; however, papers that are too long
or violate the LNCS formatting instructions will be rejected.
The reviews of the papers will be provided to the authors around June
17, 2010 and authors will have 48 hours to submit an optional response
limited to 500 words for the purpose of clarification, correction, or
answering questions asked by the reviewers. Responses will be taken
into account during the PC meeting.
Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by
Springer in the LNCS series. Authors of best papers from the
conference will be invited to revise and submit extended versions of
their papers for a special issue of the Journal on Software and
Systems Modeling (Springer Press).

information on submissions.

About Oslo and the conference locations
***************************************
Oslo, capital of Norway, is located in the center of Scandinavia and
is bounded by the fjord and forested hills, providing stunning
scenery. The woods around Oslo are easily accessible by metro, and the
city itself offers many outdoor cafes and pedestrian areas near the
city center and along the waterfront. Most sites and museums are
easily accessible by short walks or metro rides (see
http://www.visitoslo.com/en). Early October in Oslo is a time of cool,
crisp weather that is generally sunny and clear.
The conference site is Oslo Congress Centre
(http://www.oslokongressenter.no/) in the very heart of Oslo, with all
hotels within walking distance.
