Call For Papers


Third Workshop on
Transforming and Weaving OWL Ontologies in MDE/MDA



at TOOLS 2010 federated conferences, Malaga, Spain

* April 15, 2010: Papers submission
* May 14, 2010: Author notification
* May 31, 2010: Submission of camera-ready papers
* June 30, 2010: Workshop day


As model-driven engineering (MDE) spreads, disciplines like model transformation, domain specific languages (DSLs) and traceability become essential in order to support different kinds of models in an model-driven environment. Understanding the role of ontology technologies like knowledge representation, automated reasoning, dynamic classification and consistency checking in these fields is crucial to leverage the development of such disciplines. Thus, we highlight the following open questions: How can the scientific and technical results around ontologies, ontology languages and their corresponding reasoning technologies be used fruitfully in MDE? What is the role of ontologies in supporting model transformation or traceability? How can ontologies improve designing DSLs? Are current query languages able to query both kinds of models?

Discussions about these and related questions will be supported by this workshop. TWOMDE2010 aims at providing a forum for discussing the application of different aspects of ontologies to enhance model-driven engineering.

The intended audience embraces members of the modeling community with experience or interest in model-driven engineering and in Knowledge Representation. Specifically, but not only, the participation of experts in technologies related with UML, MOF, ATL, QVT, RDF or OWL is highly welcome.


TWOMDE2010 is the exclusive forum at a MDE conference to address the application of ontologies in model-driven development. The potential of this field has just started being explored.

For this edition, we expect use cases in a wider range of topics. Topics of interest are but not exclusive:

* RDF metamodel repository: interfaces and models to store, retrieve, query and manage MOF/Ecore metadata in RDF stores.

* Reasoning over MOF-based models using ontologies: verification and validation of models using ontologies; application of Description Logics reasoning in UML diagrams or MOF/Ecore models, in order to enhance and to support models and metamodels at design time as well as at runtime.

* Application of ontologies in model transformation: usage of ontologies and reasoning to automatically generate model transformations; validation of model transformations; use of reasoning in model transformation rules.

* Reasoning and query languages for integrated models: development or integration of query languages able to retrieve objects of MOF-based models and OWL-based models; reasoning approaches or algorithms regarding both semantics of Description Logics semantics of and MOF-based models.

* Integration of modeling standards and metamodeling of ontology technologies: integration approaches like aspect-oriented programming to weave modeling standards like MOF, Ecore, UML, OCL, ODM, and SWRL; development, improvement or integration of metamodels for ontology technologies, for example, OWL, SWRL, F-Logic.

* Ontology driven software development: ontology support to web service orchestration; software architectures and methodologies for developing semantic web services and agents; reuse of web service ontologies or application of reasoning in specifying execution logics of orchestration.

* MDE tools using ontologies: implementations of MDE tools relying on ontologies or on reasoning services.

* Semantic support to Domain Specific Languages: integration of metamodeling and ontologies in order to provide abstract syntax and formal semantics for DSL.

* Ontology engineering with MDA/MDE techniques: application of MDA/MDE techniques in order to support ontology engineering activities like ontology pruning, ontology refactoring, or ontology measurement.

* Ontology connectors to system models: methods and techniques for integrating ontology constructs like classes and properties with MOF-based constructs like classes, properties or operations.

* Application of Ontologies in traceability and provenance: usage of model annotations, ontologies and reasoning in order to improve traceability between MOF-based models.


* Full Papers: describe concrete contributions validated by appropriate evaluation. Full paper submissions must not exceed 15 pages.

* Short Papers: comprehend research-in-progress, industrial experience and position papers. Short paper submissions do not exceed 6 pages.

* Posters and Demos: authors are invited to submit a three-page paper describing tools involving ontologies in MDE.

All papers must be submitted online using the submission website ( Submissions must be in PDF, formatted in the style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).


Final versions of accepted papers will be published electronically in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings Series.
