+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ CALL FOR PARTICIPATION WTUML01 Workshop on Transformations in the Unified Modeling Language (satellite event to ETAPS 2001) Genova, Italy April 7th, 2001 http://ase.arc.nasa.gov/wtuml01 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Although UML has become a standard modeling language, there are many questions that can be raised concerning the transformations of its models. Transformations are one of the key underlying technologies in Computer Science, and yet, to date, the potential of transformations has not been realized within the context of UML. UML is essentially a collection of different modelling notations with under-defined relationships between them. Well-defined transformations both within and out with UML would facilitate advances in UML design methodologies, validation and verification, code generation and model maintenance. The aim of this workshop is to identify the most promising roles for transformations in UML and to discover which transformations are most important for industry and why. Participation is encouraged both from practitioners who could help identify current modelling gaps that could be filled by transformations, and from researchers who could suggest transformations and frameworks for implementing them. Participation Participants are asked to write a short position paper (5 pages or less) on some aspect of transformations of UML models. A non-exhaustive list of topics includes: * transformations between UML notations; * transformations to other notations (e.g., formal languages, other modelling languages, code); * rigorous processes for transformations; * formal and informal transformations; * experience in industry using transformations in UML; * semantic issues related to UML transformations; * types of transformations (e.g. refinements, enhancements, refactoring); * role of transformations in UML; * transformations for development, validation, verification; * transformations with respect to metrics for UML models; * frameworks for implementing transformations; * tool support for transformations. Submissions should be sent to Jon Whittle (jonathw@acm.org) and should be in either Word, PDF, Postscript or HTML. Workshop Format The workshop will be split between presentations and discussion groups. The organizing committee will review and select the most relevant papers to be presented at the workshop. Afterwards, focussed discussions will take place that aim to answer key questions that will be identified from the workshop submissions and circulated to the participants prior to the workshop. This is a one day workshop. Important Dates Deadline for sending position papers: 22nd January, 2001 Notification of acceptance: 1st February, 2001 Workshop: 7th April 2001 Location The workshop will take place in Genova (Italy).
