CALL FOR POSITION PAPERS O M E R - 2 Object-oriented Modeling of Embedded RT-Systems (http://ist.unibw-muenchen.de/GROOM/OMER-2/) 10 - 12 May 2001 Herrsching am Ammersee 9th Workshop of Working Group "GROOM: Foundations of OO Modeling" of the "GI-Fachgruppe 2.1.9" "OOSE: OO-Software-Entwicklung" * * * SCOPE The importance of embedded real-time (RT) systems for our daily life is rapidly increasing. Important application areas are e.g. the aerospace, automotive, chemical process engineering, and telecommunications industry. In all these areas the complexity and functionality of functions realized in software increases rapidly. Often this software is still developed using software engineering technologies of the eighties. As a consequence, it does not fulfill our expectations concerning maintenance and reusability of developed subcomponents. Furthermore, it often suffers from a separation of functions and data. These are the reasons why object-oriented (OO) approaches are needed that facilitate the development of reusable software components, which hide data and functions behind well-defined interfaces. The workshop OMER-2 addresses all aspects of the development and application of object-oriented methods (languages, tools, processes) for the design and implementation of embedded RT systems. Its main purpose is to serve as a platform for academics and industry as well as for tool (method) developers and users to exchange their experiences in this field and to discuss new trends. A further intention is to clarify a research agenda for the OO development of embedded RT software, allowing academics to focus their efforts and practitioners to reflect their daily business. FORMAT OMER-2 is planned to be an "informal" workshop (similar to its predecessor) with a limited number of participants (authors of position paper submissions will be preferred), invited talks of distinguished experts, short presentations of accepted submissions, a modeling contest, and ample time for discussions and working subgroups on different topics. INVITED SPEAKER * Bruce Douglass (I-Logix, Andover) MODELING CONTEST (http://www.automotive-uml.com/mc/) The workshop is accompanied by a modeling contest. The best models will be honored with prize money and be presented at the workshop. SUBMISSIONS Position papers of four to six pages pertaining to all aspects of OO embedded RT system modeling are sought, not limited to the following: * Architectural styles, patterns, ... * Code generation from models * Development of reusable components * Experience reports of OO projects * Extensions of OO modeling languages * Testing and verification strategies Submissions should be sent as pdf- or ps-files to mailto:omer@ist.unibw-muenchen.de The proceedings of OMER-2 will be published as a technical report. Authors of selected submissions will be invited to submit a journal paper version after the workshop. DEADLINES Deadline for position papers: March 1st, 2001 Notification of authors: April 1st, 2001 Registration for workshop: April 11th, 2001 LOCAL ORGANIZATION A.
