The MODELS series of conferences is the premier venue for the exchange of innovative technical ideas and experiences related to model-driven software engineering. Topics covered by MODELS include, among others, domain-specific modelling languages, general-purpose modelling languages and standards, model-driven engineering processes, model transformations, model-driven software engineering tools and frameworks, as well as quality assurance for functional and non-functional properties of models.
Following the tradition of previous conferences, MODELS 2018 will host a number of workshops during three days before the main conference. The workshops will provide a collaborative forum for a group of typically 15 to 30 participants to exchange recent and/or preliminary results, to conduct intensive discussions on a particular topic related to model-driven software engineering, and to coordinate efforts between representatives of a technical community. They are intended as a forum for lively discussion of innovative ideas, recent progress, and practical experience on model-driven engineering for specific aspects, problems or needs.
In 2018, MODELS challenges the community to explore the use of modelling for new and emerging systems, paradigms, and open problems, including (but not limited to):
We encourage prospective workshop organizers to submit proposals for highly interactive workshops focusing on areas related to modelling in general. Both research-oriented and applied topics are welcome. The duration of each workshop is either half a day or a full day.
Workshops are typically based on presenting peer-reviewed papers submitted to the workshop. However, we also welcome workshops that do not intend to run a paper submission process, but take a different format.
Your proposal must contain the following information: General Information:
To ensure a proper coordination of the workshop paper submission deadlines with those of the main conference, the following constraints have to be respected:
Please note that the dates above are common across all workshops.
Please ensure that you adhere to the workshop proposal guidelines above and provide all of the requested information within at most 7 pages, including the CfP draft. Submissions must adhere to the ACM formatting instructions (specifically the sigconf template), which can be found at: ACM Templates.
Please submit your workshop proposal electronically as a PDF via EasyChair at: Workshop EasyChair submission link until the workshop proposal deadline on March 03, 2018.
As last year, there will be joint workshop proceedings that include papers from all workshops. The proceedings will be published by CEUR (http://ceur-ws.org).
For each workshop, the joint proceedings will include:
Further details will be communicated to the organizers of accepted workshops at the time of notification.
