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

 

Call for Workshops

The MODELS series of conferences is the premier venue for the exchange of innovative technical ideas and experiences relating to model-driven approaches in the development of software-based systems. Topics covered by the conference include domain-specific modeling languages, model-driven engineering processes, model transformations, aspect-oriented modeling, verification and validation, and modeling of applications in specific domains (e.g., real-time systems).

Following the tradition of previous conferences, MODELS 2013 will host a number of workshops during the three days before the main conference. The workshops will provide a collaborative forum for groups of typically 15 to 30 participants to exchange recent and/or preliminary results, to conduct intensive discussions on a particular topic, or to coordinate efforts between representatives of a technical community. They are intended as a forum for lively discussion of innovative ideas, recent progress, or practical experience on model-driven engineering for specific aspects, specific problems, or domain-specific needs. Each workshop should provide a balanced distribution of its time for both presentation of papers and discussions. We encourage prospective workshop organizers to submit proposals for highly-interactive workshops focusing on areas related to modeling in general. Both research-oriented and applied topics are welcome. The duration of each workshop is one day.

  • Objectives
  • Intended audience
  • Relevance (in particular to the MODELS community)
  • Context (any past events related to your workshop including related conferences, previous workshops, previous sessions, and previous experience of the current organizers)
  • Need (comments in favor of your application; if your workshop was at MODELS'12 or any of the former conferences, why is it useful to run it again?)

3. Organization Details

  • Details on the organizers (150 words max), including relevant past experience in workshop organization
  • Workshop program committee (indicated as finalized or expected)
  • Would you be willing to merge your workshop with other workshops on a similar topic if this were a condition for hosting your workshop at MODELS?

4. Workshop Format

Please note: Your workshop must adhere to the common deadlines specified below

  • Intended paper format
  • Evaluation process
  • Intended publication of accepted papers (printed proceedings or Web site)
  • Intended workshop format (including duration, number of presentations, and planned keynotes)
  • How many participants do you expect (please make at least an educated guess)?
  • What kind of equipment do you need (e.g., data projector, computer, whiteboard)?

5. Additional Material

  • Workshop Web page (URL of the draft Web page, if one exists)
  • Draft Call for papers for the Workshop (a one page Call for Papers that you intend to send out if your workshop is accepted)

Submissions

Please ensure that you adhere to the above workshop proposal guidelines providing all requested information using at most six pages. In addition, please provide a one-page draft of your planned Call for Papers (not included in the six pages).

Submit your workshop proposal electronically in PDF using the Springer LNCS style. The proposal must be submitted as a PDF file to EasyChair. Please click here to submit a workshop proposal.

Proceedings

Workshop papers will be published in a post-conference edition of CEUR, with each workshop having its own volume and indexed in DBLP. Details will be communicated to the organizers of accepted workshops at the time of notification.

Registration Requirements

As in previous years, a single satellite registration fee will cover both tutorials and workshops. Under this schema, workshop organizers will not receive monetary compensation, and will have to pay their own registration. The same schema applies to any speaker that workshop organizers want to invite to deliver an invited talk at their workshop. By submitting a workshop proposal the organizers accept these conditions.
