**************************************************************************** ********** Call for Papers ECOOP 2002 WITUML: Workshop on Integration and Transformation of UML models Málaga, Spain, June 11th, 2002 http://ctp.di.fct.unl.pt/~ja/wituml02.htm **************************************************************************** *********** Although UML is now a standard modelling language in widespread use in industry, its role in software engineering is still unclear in many respects. This workshop will attempt to define UML in terms of its relationship both to itself and to other languages/artefacts. Whilst this is clearly related to the question of what is the semantics of UML, the workshop will take a more pragmatic view and focus on transformations and integrations of UML models. Transformations are one of the key underlying technologies in Computer Science, and yet, to date, have not been exploited fully within the context of UML. Well-defined transformations both within and outside UML would facilitate advances in UML design methodologies, validation and verification, code generation and model maintenance. Transformations address UML relationships in terms of how they can be translated into each other. The question can also be answered in terms of how UML models can be combined or integrated - for example, how can OCL and sequence diagrams be used together? The workshop will concentrate on both transformation-based and integration-based approaches. The aim of this workshop is to identify the most promising roles for model transformation and integration in UML and to identify which transformations and integration approaches are crucial for industry and why. Participation is encouraged both from practitioners who could help identify current modelling gaps that could be filled by transformations and integrations, and from researchers who could suggest transformations, integrations and frameworks for implementing them. This is the second workshop on this theme. The first, WTUML01, was held as a satellite event to ETAPS2001. See http://ase.arc.nasa.gov/wtuml01 PARTICIPATION Participants are asked to write a short position paper (5 pages or less) on some aspect of transformations/integration of UML models. A non-exhaustive list of topics includes: - transformation and integration between UML notations; - transformations to other notations (e.g., formal languages, other modelling languages, code); ˇ rigorous processes for transformation and integration; - formal and informal transformations; - rigorous processes for transformation and integration; - experience in industry using transformation and integration in UML; - identification of specific transformations needed in industry; - semantic issues related to UML model transformation and integration; - types of transformations (e.g. refinements, enhancements, refactoring); - transformations for development, validation, verification; - frameworks for implementing transformations; - tool support for transformations and integration; - integration between the aspect-oriented paradigm and UML. Submissions should be sent to ja@di.fct.unl.pt 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 to spark discussion. 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. PROCEDINGS The accepted position papers will be published online at the website of the workshop. In addition, the results of the workshop will be summarised in a workshop report to be published in the ECOOP Workshop Reader in Lecture Notes in Computer Science. IMPORTANT DATES Deadline for sending position papers: 8th April, 2002 Notification of acceptance: 29th April, 2002 Workshop: 11th June 2002 LOCATION The workshop will take place in Málaga (Spain). Information about the workshop location and registration can be found on the web page of ECOOP 2002 (http://www.ecoop2002.lcc.uma.es/) INVITED SPEAKER To be announced.
