Co-located with TOOLS Europe 2011

Zurich - Switzerland, 27 - 28 June 2011


Modelling is a key element in reducing the complexity of software
systems during their development and maintenance. Model transformations
are essential for elevating models from documentation elements to
first-class artifacts of the development process. Model transformation
includes model-to-text transformation to generate code from models,
text-to-model transformations to parse textual representations to model
representations, model extraction to derive higher-level models from
legacy code, and model-to-model transformations to normalize, weave,
optimize, and refactor models, as well as to translate between modeling

Model transformation encompasses a variety of technical spaces,
including modelware, grammarware, and XML-ware, a variety of
transformation representations including graphs, trees, and DAGs, and a
variety of transformation paradigms including rule-based graph
transformation, term rewriting, and implementations in general-purpose
programming languages.

The study of model transformation includes foundations, semantics,
structuring mechanisms, and properties (such as modularity,
composability, and parameterization) of transformations, transformation
languages, techniques and tools. An important goal of the field is the
development of high-level declarative model transformation languages,
providing model representations of transformations that are amenable to
'higher-order' model transformation. To achieve impact on software
engineering practice, tools and methodologies to integrate model
transformation into existing development environments and processes are
required. ICMT is the premier forum for the presentation of
contributions that advance the state-of-the-art in the field of model
transformation and aims to bring together researchers from all areas of
model transformation.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Transformation paradigms and languages
* graph rewriting, tree rewriting, attribute grammars
* rule-based, declarative, imperative, functional
* textual, graphical
* pattern matching
* transformation by example
* modularity, reusability, and composition
* comparison of transformation languages
* theoretical foundations

* Transformation algorithms and strategies
* model representations: graphs, dags, trees
* bidirectional transformation
* incremental transformation
* scalability
* optimization
* termination and confluence
* higher-order transformation
* evolution of transformations

* Implementation and tools
* design of transformations and transformation languages
* verification, validation and testing of transformations

* Applications and case studies
* refactoring
* aspect weaving
* model comparison, differencing and merging
* round-trip engineering
* co-evolution of models and meta-models
* reverse engineering (code-to-model)
* code generation by model transformation

* Industrial experience reports

* Empirical studies

Submission guidelines

All contributions will be subject to a rigorous selection process by the
international Program Committee, with an emphasis on originality,
practicality and overall quality. Papers should clearly indicate their
contributions with respect to previous work. Each paper will be reviewed
by at least 3 committee members. All submissions should follow the LNCS
format and should include the authors' names, affiliations and contact
details. Further instructions for submitting a paper will be available

As in previous editions of ICMT, we intend to publish proceedings in the
Springer LNCS series. Moreover, a special issue with a selection of the
best papers from the conference will be published in the Journal of
Object Technology (JOT).
