[apologies if you receive multiple copies of this announcement] ================================================================= Call for Conference Papers, Workshops and Tutorials <<UML>>2000 Third International Conference on the Unified Modeling Language "Advancing the Standard" October 2-6, 2000 Royal York Hotel York, UK http://www.cs.york.ac.uk/uml2000 The Unified Modeling Language (UML) has rapidly become the "lingua-franca" of the software design community, both in industry and academia. The <<UML>> series of conferences has grown to be the premier venue for exchange of innovative technical ideas and experiences relating to UML. The conference includes, among its active participants, the originators of UML and other key individuals involved in the definition and evolution of the standard. <<UML>>2000 takes place just as work on the next version of UML (2.0) begins and will have a strong bearing on the standard. It will provide a forum for lively and exciting debate on key issues of the moment. The conference will be held in York, one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in England. It is with great pleasure that the <<UML>>2000 organising committee invites authors to submit: Research Papers: describing innovative research on any aspect of modeling, including, but not limited to, notations, automated tools, foundations, processes, architectures and patterns. Given the timeliness of the conference, papers proposing simplifications, clarifications, extensions and modifications to UML are strongly encouraged. All papers should clearly demonstrate their relationship to UML. Experience Papers: detailing experience of significant industrial applications of UML and related modeling techniques, including, but not limited to, applications in real-time/embedded systems, information systems, software development, business modelling and knowledge representation. Proposals for Advanced Tutorials: all advanced topics relating to the conference are potential candidates for tutorials. The sole requirement for proposals is that topics be of interest to advanced practitioners and researchers. Proposals for Advanced Workshops: workshops addressing a particular sub-area of UML in depth, that aim to investigate the relationship of UML with other areas of computer science, or which focus on the application of UML are all appropriate candidates for workshops. Full guidelines for writing and submitting workshop and tutorial proposals are available at the conference website. Invited Speakers: Steve Cook (IBM) Cris Kobryn (EDS) Ivar Jacobson (Rational Software) Important dates: Deadline for Abstract *24 March 2000* Deadline for Submission *7 April 2000* Notification to Authors 9 June 2000 Final Version of Accepted Papers 24 July 2000 Main conference: 4-6 October, 2000. Tutorials and Workshops: 2-3 October, 2000 Paper Submissions: Submit your manuscript electronically in postscript or PDF using the Springer LNCS style (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). Papers should be no more than 15 pages in length. Full details of the submission process, including more specific guidelines on the preparation of papers, will be available on the conference website shortly. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series. Workshop and Tutorial Submissions: Proposals for advanced tutorials and workshops are requested. Indicate your intention to submit by the deadline for abstracts. Submit a 3-4 page summary of your proposal by the deadline for paper submissions. See website for details. York: The City of York is world famous for its historic buildings and tourist attractions, and is located at the heart of Yorkshire, one of the most scenic counties of England. York's many attractions include the famous York Minster, the York Races, many fascinating museums including the National Railway Museum (where the main conference dinner is to be held), real Yorkshire ales, traditional shops and good food. Access to local beauty spots, such as the Yorkshire Moors and the East Coast resorts of Scarborough and Robin Hoods Bay (among many others) is easy via local transport connections. There is a frequent, direct train service from Manchester Airport. Venue: The conference will be held at the historic Royal York Hotel, situated next to York Railway Station.
