ACM/IEEE 16th International Conference on
Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems


Call for Posters

For the first time in the history of the conference, MODELS 2013 will have a formal poster session. Posters will be exhibited on Wednesday, October 2nd. The goal of the poster session is to facilitate interaction between groups of individuals in an informal setting. Posters can be used to present both early communication of technical work and late-breaking results in research, practices, and experiences. Posters can complement submissions to the foundations and applications tracks, workshops, doctoral symposium, and educators’ symposium to provide opportunities for more discussions. However, we also strongly encourage poster submissions that describe novel work that may not be presented at other sessions of MODELS 2013.


Posters should target the entire MODELS audience, which includes academic and industrial researchers, and practitioners. Posters will be advertised in the conference program. Poster presenters must register for the conference and attend the poster session in order to discuss their work with attendees.

Topics of Interest

We seek contributions in the following areas (but not limited to):

  • Modeling techniques for specific domains
  • Presentation of new tools or new versions of old tools (e.g. Modeling workbenches, Model transformation languages, Model Verification tools)
  • Dissemination of project results from industry-related projects
  • Applying modeling technologies in non-traditional domains
  • Modeling for re-engineering and legacy evolution
  • Modeling methodologies and model-oriented processes
  • Empirical experiences in the context of modeling
  • Practical experiences of general interest

Submission Content

The article from ACM Crossroads (available at provides excellent tips on how to prepare successful posters. A poster must include the following information:

  • Title
  • Author(s) and affiliation(s)
  • Motivation and goals
  • Background information, if needed to understand the work
  • Adequate detail on the proposed approach, results, and contributions
  • Related work
  • Links to additional information (e.g., project website, contact information, citations to publications, other MODELS activities that will also present the work)

Submission of Proposals

Submission will be processed through EasyChair:

Each submission should be a 3-5 page extended abstract that is PDF formatted to the Springer LNCS standard. The extended abstract should describe the background and contribution of the research presented in the poster. An additional page should be submitted at the end of the extended abstract that contains a draft of the actual poster (this last page will not be published, but used for review purposes). If the poster is accepted, a revised version of this extended abstract will be published in CEUR as a separate volume and indexed by DBLP. Details about the required submission format can be found here.

The maximum size of an accepted poster will be 48in x 36 in.

For every accepted poster, at least one presenter must be regularly registered for MODELS 2013 before the early bird deadline.
