MoDELS 2005 Call for Tutorial 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.

Proposals for tutorials on advanced topics related to modeling are solicited. The audience for tutorials will comprise of practitioners, industrial and academic researchers, and developers familiar with and already working with models. As a result, introductory tutorials on modeling are not recommended. Instead, successful tutorials will be highly focussed on advanced topics, such as the following (non-exhaustive) list:

  • advances in the practical use of model-driven development techniques;
  • improving and evolving models;
  • tool support for any aspect of model-driven development or model use;
  • the next generation of visual modeling languages;
  • applying modeling effectively in specialized domains;
  • modeling and requirements engineering.

Tutorials will last for half a day and may be given by a single or multiple presenters. They are encouraged to include presentations as well as interactive discussions and problem solving sessions. Tutorials will be held the three days before the main conference (Sunday - Tuesday).
