Call for papers: Foundations 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

Foundations track program committee

Here are the members of the Foundations track program committee.  

Submission process

Online submission of your Foundations track paper is handled by CyberChair.

The paper length is limited to 15 pages. Paper submission must conform to the Springer LNCS formatting guidelines.

All submissions must be original, unpublished, and not submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere.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).
