6th Workshop on Model Design, Verification and Validation
** Integrating Verification and Validation in MDE **

Denver, Colorado, USA
October 4-9, 2009

** Call for papers **

Models are purposeful abstractions. They allow humans to understand
complex systems. Beyond their use as documentations, models can also be
used to generate artefacts. A formal foundation of models allows to
generate large parts of systems from models. Thus, the usage of models,
model transformations, and code generation is becoming more and more
important for industrial applications. As one of the most important
representatives for the application of models, Model-Driven Engineering
(MDE) is a development methodology that is based on models, meta-models,
and model transformations. Currently there is a lot of tool support for
models, (domain-specific) modelling languages, model transformations,
and code generation. The constant pace at which scientific and
industrial development of MDE-related techniques moves forward shows
that MDE is quickly changing and that new approaches and corresponding
issues arise frequently. Most important, there is crucial need for
validation and verification (V&V) techniques in the context of MDE.

The objective of the workshop on model-driven engineering, verification
and validation (MoDeVVa) in 2009 is to offer a forum for researchers and
practitioners who are working on V&V and MDE. The main goals of the
workshop are to identify the mutual impact of MDE and V&V: How can MDE
improve V&V and how can V&V leverage the techniques around MDE?

The major questions about MDE and V&V concern possible overlappings and
mutual benefits for both techniques: Does a model, meta-model, or model
transformation express what the user wanted to express? Are these
artefacts correct with respect to security, time, and other constraints?
Is even the result of concatenating several model transformations still
correct? How can models or modelling languages (meta-models) support
V&V, e.g. in model-based testing? What modelling languages or model
transformations did perform best in reality (experience report)? Can V&V
support the whole software engineering process from initial (informal)
requirements via several model transformations to source code?
In order to discuss these and similar questions, we would like to invite
submissions related to the following topics:

* V&V techniques for MDE activities, e.g. V&V for model2model or
model2text transformations;
* V&V at the level of the models: techniques for validating a model or
generating test cases from models, including simulation, model-checking,
model-based testing, etc.;
* V&V at the level of metamodels: techniques for validating meta-models
(languages) or for using meta-models to validate other artefacts;
* The application of MDE to validation, testing and verification;
* Impact analysis of (meta-)model changes on validation. What is the
result of a change in a (meta-)model on the previous results of validation?
* V&V techniques supporting refinement, abstraction and structuring;
* Tools and automation;
* Case studies and experience reports.

** Submissions and Publication **

Submitted papers must not exceed 10 pages in the LNCS format: .
Proceedings of the workshop will be published in the IEEE Digital Library.
There will be an award for the best paper. The corresponding authors
will receive it at the workshop. Furthermore, the two best papers will
be published in the LNCS Satellite Event Proceedings of the MODELS

** Workshop Format **

Beside the traditional presentation sessions, MoDeVVa 2009 will include
a workshop where the members of the audience will be able to bring their
opinions on the topics presented in the papers. We anticipate an
enjoyable and exciting event where all participants will leave with
answers (or at least better informed doubts ;-)) about their questions
on MDE and V&V.
