QUATIC’2010 Thematic Track:
Quality in Model Driven Engineering


Call for papers

Model-driven engineering (MDE) refers to a range of approaches where models play an indispensable role in software development. Modeling promotes higher level of abstraction, therefore reducing complexity of software development and promoting communication among the several stakeholders in the development process (e.g. product managers, designers, programmers). MDE initiatives, like OMG’s Model-Driven Architecture (MDA), make claims of increased quality and productivity by separating business and application logic from underlying platform technology, transforming models to other models and automating code generation (ranging from system skeletons to complete, deployable products). However, while quality assurance is a well-known topic in “traditional” Software Engineering, less is known on how to assess quality across the MDE lifecycle (encompassing new activities such as metamodel engineering or transformations specification), as well as on the effective improvements obtained by applying MDE itself, face to not using it at all.

We seek novel contributions ranging from conceptual frameworks to case studies on how to leverage ICT systems quality with MDE techniques, as well as how to induce quality assurance in the MDE lifecycle itself. Suggested topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

· Quality models in the MDE context
· Quality assurance in the MDE development flow
· Evaluating the quality of models and metamodels
· Models’ traceability throughout the lifecycle
· Assessing quality in model transformations
· Measuring the improvement achieved with an MDE approach, specially regarding quality
· Quality in the context of model-driven service oriented systems
· Case studies and lessons learned in applying MDE in industry
· Empirical studies on the quality of MDE processes

Paper submission

Authors should submit to a PDF version of their paper. Papers must be in IEEE format and not exceed 6 pages, including figures, references, and appendices. Submissions must be original and will be reviewed by the Track Program Committee. Accepted papers will be published in the electronic IEEE proceedings of QUATIC’10, subject to one of the authors registering for the conference. The authors of the 3 best papers of this thematic track will be invited to submit extended versions to the main track of the conference. More info on QUATIC’2010 and its tracks can be found at
