Call for Workshops

ACM/IEEE 20th International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems

Austin, Texas, Sept 17-22, 2017

Facts in short

Event: MoDELS 2017
Where: Austin, Texas
When: Sept 17-22, 2017
Proposal submission: March 10 March 14, 2017 (deadline extended)

The MODELS series of conferences is the premier venue for the exchange of innovative technical ideas and experiences relating to model-driven software engineering approaches. Topics covered by the conference include domain-specific modelling languages, general-purpose modelling languages and standards, model-driven engineering processes, model transformations, model-driven software engineering tools and frameworks, quality assurance for functional and non-functional properties of models, and many more.

Following the tradition of previous conferences, MODELS 2017 will host a number of workshops during the three days before the main conference. The workshops will provide a collaborative forum for a group of typically 15 to 30 participants to exchange recent and/or preliminary results, to conduct intensive discussions on a particular topic related to model-driven software engineering, or to coordinate efforts between representatives of a technical community. They are intended as a forum for lively discussion of innovative ideas, recent progress, or practical experience on model-driven engineering for specific aspects, specific problems, or domain-specific needs.

In 2017, MODELS challenges the community to explore the use of modelling for new and emerging systems, paradigms, and open problems including (but not limited to):

Each workshop should provide a balanced distribution of its time for both presentation of papers and discussions. We encourage prospective workshop organizers to submit proposals for highly interactive workshops focusing on areas related to modelling in general. Both research-oriented and applied topics are welcome. The duration of each workshop is either half a day or a full day.
