Call For Papers

Call for papers: Foundations Track

Over the years, model-based development has been successfully adopted across a wide range of domains such as industrial automation, business engineering, hardware/software co-design, real-time system development, Web 2.0 application design, and so forth. However, there are still numerous problems to be addressed that require collaborative research across multiple disciplines. The primary objective of the Foundations Track of MODELS 2012 is to provide a forum for the exchange and discussion of new ideas, results and insights that can advance the state-of-the-art in model-driven engineering.

We invite authors to submit original papers in the following categories.

Technical Papers describing original scientifically rigorous solutions to significant model-driven development problems. A technical paper should clearly describe the problem addressed, the relevant state of the art, the scientifically-founded solution, and the benefits of the contribution. Appropriate examples, synthetic or otherwise, should be used to explain all aspects of the proposed contribution.
Empirical Evaluation Papers evaluating existing problem cases or scientifically validating proposed solutions through, for example, empirical studies, experiments, case studies, simulations, formal analyses, and mathematical proofs. The topic of the evaluation presented in the paper as well as its causal or logical properties must be clearly stated. The research method must be sound and appropriate.
Exploratory papers describe new, non-conventional model-driven development research positions or approaches. These papers should challenge the status-quo and describe solutions that are based on new ways of looking at model-driven development problems and solutions. They must clearly describe the inadequacies in the current state-of-the-art and rigorously present their approach, clearly demonstrating its pertinence and correctness.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Development and use of domain-specific modeling languages
Evolution 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 transformations and generative 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)
New modeling paradigms and formalisms
Modelling in, and for, the Cloud

Submission Process

Papers should be submitted through the CyberChair system. Each paper must conform to the Springer LNCS formatting guidelines and is limited to 15 pages plus at most two pages for references. Papers that are too long or violate the LNCS formatting instructions will be automatically rejected. All submissions must be original, unpublished, and not submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere.

Authors will be given an opportunity to provide a 500 word response to the initial reviews which will be taken into account during the PC meeting. This response should focus on clarifying, correcting or answering questions asked by the reviewers.

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).
