In today’s technological environment, models play a major role in understanding business needs, in requirements elicitation, and in software development. To facilitate these activities, in the past decades many modeling languages such as URN (for requirements), BPMN (for business process modeling) and the UML (for software development) were introduced both in the academia and in practice. Although the use of these models and modeling languages is gaining some traction in industry, their use is still limited. Arguably, a contributory factor limiting the use of modeling is the lack of appropriate educational resources. The 14th Educators Symposium at MODELS 2018 provides educators, researchers and practitioners a forum to discuss approaches to better address the issues facing the appropriate use of models and related technologies in the classroom. We invite submissions related to (but not limited to) the following questions and topics:
Papers have to present original content. Previously published papers, accepted papers or under review for other publications are not eligible for submission to the Educators Symposium 2018. The format for the ACM volumes has to be the sigconf template provided by ACM (see https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template for details).
All papers have to be submitted electronically in PDF format via Easychair at: Workshop Educators Sympoisum Link
All papers of the 14th Educators Symposium at MODELS 2018 will be published in a companion proceedings volume at ACM. At least one author for each accepted paper must register for the symposium at the MODELS 2018 conference by the early registration deadline and present the paper at the symposium. Failure to do so will result in the paper being withdrawn from the proceedings. All papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. The paper selection process will be based on the novelty of the ideas or solutions, the impact of modeling in software development education, and relevance to the topics of the symposium.
All submission deadlines are AoE (i.e. UTC-12).
