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).
