Calls for Scientific Track

Over the years model-based development has gained rapidly increasing popularity across various engineering disciplines. Numerous efforts resulted in the invention of concepts, languages, and tools for the definition, analysis, transformation, and extension of domain-specific modeling languages as well as general-purpose modeling language standards. Problems in this domain span multiple disciplines and have to be addressed by collaborative research activities spanning domains such as industrial automation, business engineering, hardware/software co-design, real-time system development, Web 2.0 application design, and so forth.

A primary objective of the scientific track of MODELS is to build a forum for exchange and discussion of new research results dedicated to advancing the state-of-the-art of model-based development in general. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Development of domain-specific modeling languages
  • Design of general-purpose modeling languages and related standards
  • Definition of the syntax and semantics of modeling languages
  • Tools and meta-tools for modeling languages and model-based development
  • Definition and usage of model transformation and generation approaches
  • Development of systems engineering and modeling-in-the-large concepts
  • Proposals of new model quality assurance techniques (analysis, testing, verification)
  • Integration of modeling languages and tools (hybrid multi-modeling approaches)
  • Evolution of modeling languages and models
  • New modeling paradigms and formalisms

Submission Process

Submission Link: Click here to submit your scientific track paper.

Long (15 pages) and short (5 pages) paper submissions must conform to the Springer LNCS formatting guidelines.

All submissions must be original, unpublished, and not submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere. They will undergo a thorough review process by a track-specific committee comprising leading experts from academia and industry; however, papers that are too long or violate the LNCS formatting instructions will be rejected. Accepted papers will be published in a conference proceedings by Springer in the LNCS series.

Authors of best papers from the conference will be invited to revise and submit extended versions of their papers for a special issue of the Journal on Software and Systems Modeling (Springer Press).
