Call for papers

As software systems grow in complexity, traditional code-centric development methods become less efficient. Modern software systems, in fact, require powerful and flexible development methods able to abstract problems and solutions as well as automate development phases.

In the midst of the many methodologies advocating abstraction and automation, Model-driven Engineering (MDE) has gained major recognition from both researchers and practitioners. MDE focuses on the use of models for expressing domain specific concepts in a way that is at the same time understandable, precise and machine processable, thus allowing model manipulations through transformations. This track aims at providing a discussion forum where researchers and practitioners interested in model-driven engineering can meet, disseminate and exchange ideas, problems, challenges, identify key issues and explore possible solutions.

We encourage submissions of research papers, experience reports and position papers, from both academia and industry.

Suggested areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

> Domain-specific modelling languages
> Model-based analysis, testing, validation and verification
> Model transformation and reengineering
> Analysis and verification of model transformation
> Model (co)evolution and maintenance
> Model versioning
> Collaborative modelling
> Quality of (meta)models and transformations
> Models@runtime
> Tool support for model-driven engineering
> Model-checking
> Model-based testing
> Model-based measurement, prediction and monitoring
> Formal methods for MDE
> Integrated tool chains and methods for modelling and deployment
> Reverse engineering, modelling, and componentization of legacy code
> Case studies and experience reports

Authors should submit a 6-page version of original and unpublished work including 5 keywords in the Spinger format . All accepted submissions will be published in the Advances in Intelligent Systems & Computing Series and the books of the series are submitted to ISI Proceedings, EI-Compendex, DBLP, SCOPUS, Google Scholar and Springerlink. If accepted, one of the authors must attend the ITNG conference and present the work in person.

Special Issue at Journal of Object Technology (JOT)

The best papers from the track will be invited for being submitted in extended form to a special issue of JOT. The extended papers will undergo a new peer-reviewing process.
