Researchers, and Scientists,

Due to a popular demand the deadline for the AOSD'03 Workshop on 
Aspect-Oriented Modeling
has been extended. The new deadline for submission is February 7, 2003.

Invited Speaker:
Ivar Jacobson, Rational, Inc.
"Use-case Driven Development and Aspect-Oriented Software Development"

Workshop Web Site:

The goal of this workshop is to bring together the communities of 
aspect-oriented software development and UML to discuss the state of 
research and practice when handling various kinds of crosscutting 
concerns at both software architecture and detailed design levels, and 
their mappings to aspect-oriented programs. Another key point will be to 
address the impact of aspect-oriented technologies on UML and to prepare 
together an agenda for future research in aspect-oriented modeling of 
software systems.

We are interested in submissions on all topics relating aspect-oriented 
software development and UML, including, but not limited to:

    Defining Requirements on Aspect-Oriented Modeling
          o Characteristics of a crosscutting concern that need to be 
modeled in an aspect
          o Modeling intra-object and inter-object crosscutting concerns
          o Verification and validation of aspect-oriented models
          o Composition of aspect-oriented models

    Making UML Support Aspect-Oriented Modeling
          o Extending or "tailoring" UML to fit the needs of AOSD systems
          o Is a UML profile the best way to encapsulate extensions to 
the UML for AOSD?
          o UML templates for AOSD
          o Identification of UML elements that can be used to model 
aspect and how they address the above requirements
          o Architectural descriptions using UML and AOSD
          o Aspect-oriented behavioral modeling with UML

    Method and Tool Support
          o Using existing UML tools in AOSD life-cycles
          o Methodological issues related to the application of the UML 
          o Tool support for modeling AOSD artifacts with the UML

    Aspects in Software Architecture
          o Limitations of existing ADLs (architecture description 
languages) regarding the modeling of crosscutting concerns
          o Representation of crosscutting architectural concerns using 
          o Use of aspects to capture crosscutting concerns in design 
and architectural patterns
          o Composition of architectural aspects
          o How can we relate the UML, AOSD, and the IEEE recommended 
practice on architectural modeling (which promotes a multi-dimensional 
view of a system under construction)?


Prospective participants are invited to submit 4-6 page position papers. 
We encourage use of the ACM Conference format for submissions. Members 
of the workshop committees will review all submissions and the authors 
of the papers will be notified. Submitted papers must be in PDF or 
Postscript format and should be submitted to:

All queries should also be sent to the above address.


Due date for position papers: February 7, 2003 (new)
Notification of acceptance/rejection: February 10, 2003
Early registration: February 14, 2003
Workshop Date: March 18, 2003
