ICSE 2012 Workshop on Modeling in Software Engineering (MiSE 2012)
June 2-3, 2012
The purpose of this 2-day workshop is to promote the use of models in the engineering of software systems. In particular, we are interested in the exchange of innovative technical ideas and experiences related to modeling. Engineers have used models to effectively manage complexity for centuries, and there is a growing body of work on the use of models to manage inherent problem and solution complexity in software development. The use of software models will become more prevalent as methodologies and tools that manipulate models at various levels of abstraction become available.
Workshop activities will focus on analyzing successful applications of software modeling techniques to gain insights into challenging modeling problems including (1) identifying, describing, and using appropriate abstractions, (2) supporting incremental, iterative development through the use of appropriate model composition, transformation and other model manipulation operators, and (3) automated analysis of possibly large, possibly incomplete models to determine the presence or absence of desired and undesired properties.
A list of topics includes:
- Modeling notations and tools
- Modeling of non-functional properties
- Modeling patterns and strategies
- Model transformations
- Model evaluation
- Model traceability and management
- Domain specific modeling
- Extracting models from implementation artifacts (e.g., for program understanding or verification)
- Use of models to support downstream activities (e.g., to generate test cases)
- Use of models at runtime (e.g., to support dynamic adaptation)
- Empirical studies
- Variability management using models
- Model reuse
- Innovative use of models
Paper submissions: February 17, 2012
Notification of authors: March 19, 2012
Camera-ready copies: March 29, 2012
The workshop will be highly interactive and focused on the sharing of ideas and on progressing towards a shared vision of research goals. Included in the program will be paper presentations, paper critiques by designated attendees, at least one panel discussion, posters, and a keynote talk.
Each paper presentations will be limited to 15 minutes, and will be immediately followed by a critique presented by a designated attendee.
Although the workshop is open to all, prospective participants are invited to submit a 4-7 page position or technical paper. Workshop papers must follow the ICSE 2012 Format and Submission Guideline. All submissions will be reviewed by members of the program committee and the organizing committee for quality and relevance. Accepted papers will become part of the workshop proceedings.
EasyChair will be used to manage the submission review process. Submit papers here: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mise2012 .
