MoDELS 2005 Call for Workshop Proposals

ACM / IEEE 8th International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems
(formerly the UML series of conferences)

October 2 - 7, 2005
Half Moon Resort, Montego Bay, Jamaica

Model-driven system development has long been used in the development of complex hardware systems. It is becoming more prevalent in complex software or combined hardware and software systems development as methodologies and tools become available that can manipulate software models from very abstract concepts through refinement and testing.

MoDELS 2005 is the first conference devoted to the topic of model-driven engineering, covering both languages and systems used to create complex systems. This conference is both an expansion and a re-direction of previous Unified Modeling Language (UML) conferences, and replaces that series of conferences for 2005 and beyond. While the UML has played a large role in software modeling in both academia and industry, other languages and systems are also used for model-driven systems development. 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.

Following the tradition of previous UML Conferences, the new MoDELS 2005 will host a number of workshops. The workshops will provide a collaborative forum for a group of (typically 15 to 30) participants to exchange recent or preliminary results, to conduct intensive discussions on a particular topic, or to coordinate efforts between representatives of a technical community.

In particular, each workshop should provide a balanced distribution of its time for both, presentation of papers, thus favouring the attendance of young researchers, and discussion. We encourage prospective workshop organizers to submit proposals for highly-interactive workshops focusing on either in-depth analysis or broad-ranging approaches to areas related to modeling in general. Topics in both research and/or applications are welcome.

The duration of these workshops is one day and they will be held on the three days before the main conference (Sunday-Tuesday).
