9th International Workshop on Graph Transformation
and Visual Modeling Techniques (GT-VMT 2010)

Satellite Event of ETAPS 2010, Cyprus -- March 20-21, 2010

* Scope *

GT-VMT 2010 is the ninth workshop of a series that serves as a forum
for all researchers and practitioners interested in the use of
graph-based notation, techniques, and tools for the specification,
modeling, validation, manipulation and verification of complex
systems. The aim of the workshop is to promote engineering
approaches that provide effective sound tool support for visual
modeling languages, enhancing formal reasoning at the semantic level
(e.g., for model analysis, transformation, and consistency
management) in different domains, such as UML, Petri nets, Graph
Transformation or Business Process/Workflow Models.

This year's workshop will have a special focus on visualization,
simulation, and verification of concurrent and distributed systems.

Concurrency and distribution are among the most vital concerns to
nowadays computing due to the importance of interconnected systems
and the increased diffusion of multi-core
architectures. Nevertheless, concurrent and distributed systems are
hard to specify, design, verify and implement. Visual and
graph-based techniques may be exploited to cope with the complexity
in engineering of and reasoning about concurrent and distributed
systems. In fact, graph-based approaches have recently been
successfully applied to represent several computational aspects of
different classes of distributed systems ranging from mobile systems
a-la pi-calculus, to coordination in service-oriented systems, to
communication networks. The aim of the workshop is to promote
graph- and visual-based approaches for modelling, designing,
implementing and reasoning about concurrent and distributed
systems. The general areas of interest range from non-functional
aspects (e.g., security, quantitive aspects), to (semi)formal
modelling frameworks, to visual techniques for distributed and
concurrent systems.

Besides the traditional topics of the GT-VMT series like

- visual language definition (incl. metamodelling, grammars, graphical parsing, etc.)
- syntax and semantics of visual languages (incl. OCL, graph patterns, simulation, animation, compilation, verification & validation, static analysis techniques, etc.)
- model transformations
- graph transformations and visual modeling techniques in engineering, biology, and medicine
- case studies and novel application areas
- tool support and efficient algorithms

more focused topics of interest include but are not limited to

- visual and graph-based languages for distributed systems
- graph models of distributed computations
- verification and validation of distributed systems with visual techniques
- graphical static & dynamic analysis of distributed systems
- graphs for architectural design languages for distributed systems
- visual techniques for modeling process choreographies and distributed workflows
- visual/graph-based approaches to distributed coordination mechanisms
- graph-based semantics models of novel distributed architectures (e.g., service oriented, GRID, P2P computing, and context aware/adaptive distributed applications)
- model transformations of graphical into textual formalisms for distributed systems
- model transformations and their application in model-driven development of distributed and concurrent systems
- relating models/visual tools for concurrency/distribution
- ...
