The principles, practices and tools of modeling continue to evolve rapidly as model-driven development takes up an ever more central role in software development.
Although most computer science and software engineering curricula include some education in modeling technologies, the whole spectrum of modeling in software engineering - including metamodeling, model transformation and the use of domain specific languages, for example - is rarely captured. Moreover, the effective teaching of modeling presents distinct challenges. In particular:
Scope of Symposium
The Educators Symposium at MODELS addresses the challenges, techniques and best practices involved in teaching modeling technologies in universities and in industry. Papers on all topics related to this are of interest to the symposium, including:
The symposium will consist of a keynote, paper presentations, and a panel discussion. We also hope to conduct workshop-style interactive sessions based on the material in some of the papers.
Publication and Review Information
Papers may present their results in any appropriate form, e.g., as case studies or as more structured empirical studies. Assessment of results may focus on student learning outcomes, industrial assessment of trainee capabilities, or some other criteria.
Papers that primarily express opinions, or take the form of position statements, are also welcome. All papers are expected to contain well-reasoned arguments and properly cite relevant evidence.
All papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee.
The paper selection process will be based on the novelty and potential impact of the work, paper quality, and relevance to the symposium.
All accepted submissions to the Educators Symposium @ MODELS 2013 will be published in a post-conference volume of CEUR and indexed in the DBLP.
At least one author for each accepted paper must register for the
symposium at the MODELS 2013 conference and present the paper.
Contributions must not exceed 8 pages in Springer LNCS format. Details about the required submission format can be found here.
All papers have to be submitted electronically in PDF format via Easychair at: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=edusymp2013.
