Calls for Tutorial Proposals

Tutorials chair: Thomas Weigert, Missouri University of Science and Technology, USA

Model-driven engineering (MDE) is rapidly becoming a widely used techniques to develop complex systems. Although the UML now plays a dominant role in software modeling in both academic research and industrial applications, other languages and systems are also used and often yield more impressive results. Because the advantages offered by MDE are open and generic, the principles of MDE are being adopted in various domains outside the traditional areas of software engineering.

The MODELS 2009 conference is seeking proposals for tutorials that address state-of-the-art modeling as well as the use of modeling throughout the various stages of software and system development. Examples of topic areas are:

  • applying MDE in software development
  • modeling techniques for specific domains
  • advances in the practical use of MDE techniques
  • applying MDE technologies in non-traditional domains
  • processes specific to MDE deployment
  • tools to support modeling and model-driven development
  • modeling for re-engineering and legacy evolution

Proposers should keep in mind that the target audience will comprise practitioners, industrial researchers, and developers familiar with and already working with MDE. They have a strong interest in improving and evolving the languages supporting MDE, including UML, developing sophisticated tools to support MDE, and delivering complex systems through MDE. They want to learn how MDE has been applied effectively in specialized domains, and they have keen interest in how to make MDE successful in real-world applications.

Tutorials usually have duration of half a day, including short breaks, but one-day tutorials are also feasible. Typically there are around 25 participants; specific restrictions on the number of participants should be mentioned in the proposal.

Proposals must be submitted electronically via e-mail, as plain text or PDF. The tutorial submission should not exceed five pages. Various parts of the proposal for accepted tutorials may be edited for incorporation in the Advance Program.

The submission content should include the following:

  • Title
  • Abstract (200 words)
  • Keywords
  • Presenters (name, e-mail address, affiliation, address, and a brief biography)
  • Tutorial objectives
  • Tutorial outline
  • Target audience

Proposals should be sent to before the April 27, 2009 deadline. A confirmation email will be sent to acknowledge that the proposal was received.

Tutorial presenters will receive an honorarium depending on the number of attendees. The precise amount of the honorarium will be determined after the early registration deadline.

Tutorials that have less than 8 early registrants will face the risk of cancellation.

The proposals received will be reviewed by the Selection Committee to ensure a high quality and appropriate mix for the conference. The goal of the Selection Committee is to provide a diverse set of tutorials that attract a large interest among the broad segments within the diverse MODELS community.
