Call for tutorials

This year’s MODELS conference will introduce a Tutorial track rather than the traditional tutorials of half and full days that have to be paid separately. The Tutorial track will be open for those who have registered for satellite events (workshops, symposia, etc).

Thus, the MODELS 2010 conference is seeking proposals for tutorials. A slot in the Tutorial track will normally be of 1½ or 3 hours (quarter-day or half-day). Proposals for tutorials may also suggest a series of such tutorial lectures, but each lecture should be reasonably self-contained.

We hope to use the Tutorial track to attract high attendance from industry and therefore the Tutorial track should target an audience of practitioners. We will consider proposals on anything from thoughts on the past, current, or future development of our modeling domain to presentations and/or demonstrations of new tools and technologies. The talks should indeed be relevant for the participant at the MODELS conference, but we do not require the same level of technical originality that we expect from a paper in the main conference.

In addition to the topic areas mentioned above, we list the following themes as examples of what we consider relevant:

  • modeling techniques for specific domains
  • present new tools or new versions of old tools
  • disseminate project results from industry-related projects
  • applying modeling technologies in non-traditional domains
  • modeling for re-engineering and legacy evolution
  • methodology and model-oriented processes
  • practical experiences of general interest
  • book presentations
Proposers should keep in mind that the target audience will comprise practitioners, industrial researchers, and developers familiar with and already working with techniques like, e.g., MDE. They have a strong interest in improving and evolving the languages supporting modeling, including UML, developing sophisticated tool support, and delivering complex systems through modeling. They want to learn how modeling has been applied effectively in specialized domains, and they have keen interest in how to make modeling successful in real-world applications.

The submission content should include the following:

  • Title
  • Abstract (max 200 words)
  • Keywords
  • Proposed length of the lecture (1½ or 3 hours)
  • Presenters (name, e-mail address, affiliation, address, and a brief biography)
  • Target audience
  • Description of the tutorial (max 4 pages)
Proposals in PDF-format should be sent to tutorials@modelsconference.org before the 18 April 2010 deadline. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to acknowledge that the proposal has been received.

The proposals received will be reviewed by the Tutorial track committee to ensure a high quality and appropriate mix for the conference. The goal will be to provide a diverse set of lectures that attract a large interest among the broad segments within the diverse MODELS community.

The Tutorial chair can be contacted at tutorials@modelsconference.org.
