Call For Papers

The 8th OOPSLA Workshop on Domain-Specific Modeling

October 19-20, 2008

Nashville, USA


Domain-Specific Modeling raises the level of
abstraction beyond programming

by specifying the solution directly using domain
concepts. In many cases,

final products can be generated automatically from
these high-level
specifications. This automation is possible because both the language and
generators need fit the requirements of only one company and domain.

Industrial experiences of DSM consistently show it
to be 5-10 times faster

than current practices, including current UML-based
implementations of MDA.

More investigation is still needed in order to
advance the acceptance and

viability of Domain-Specific Modeling. This workshop
welcomes three types

of submissions:

1) Full papers describing ideas on either a
practical or theoretical level.

Full papers should emphasize what is new and
significant about the chosen

approach and compare it to other research work in
the field. The maximum

length of a full paper is 4000 words.

2) Position papers describing work in progress or an
author?s position
regarding current DSM practice. The maximum length of a position paper is
2000 words.

3) DSM demonstrations describing a particular
language, generator, or tool

for a particular domain. The maximum length of a
demo paper is 2000

words. During the workshop, the DSM solution
presented in the paper can
be demonstrated to the participants.

Some suggested topics for the workshop include, but
are not limited to:

- Tools for supporting domain-specific
modeling (DSM)

- Metamodeling frameworks and languages

- Comparison and analysis of model-driven
development approaches

- Principles for identifying constructs for
DSM languages

- Industry/academic experience reports
describing success/failure in

using Domain-Specific Modeling

- Novel approaches for code generation from
domain-specific models

- Approaches to implement Domain-Specific
Modeling languages

- Issues of support/maintenance of models and
evolution of a DSM

language in accordance with the
representative domain

- Version control techniques for DSMs

- Specific domains where this technology can
be most productive in

the future (e.g., embedded
systems, product family domains, or

systems with multiple
implementation platforms)

- Techniques for supporting (meta)model interchange
between tools

- Relationships between ontologies and
