Hi Tony,
I am willing to take part in the review process.

Dear pUML-er,

Please find below a copy of the call for papers for a special issue of
IEEE Software on Model Driven Development. The submission deadline is
passed and we are in the process of assigning reviewers. We would
appreciate help with the reviewing process; if you would like to help
out then please let myself or one of the editors know as soon as
possible. Many thanks if you have already agreed to take part.

   Call for Papers: Model-Driven Development
           Special Issue Publication: September/October 2003
                    Submission deadline: 15 March

               (Apologies if you receive multiple copies)

Model-driven development is the notion that systems can be developed
by constructing abstract views of systems and by transforming the
resulting models, either automatically or manually, into code.
This approach can confer increased productivity and reduced
time-to-market by enabling work at a higher level of abstraction
and improving communication with non-software domain experts.
Yet too often modeling is equated with the mere drawing of
pictures, removed from real systems development and needlessly
heavy on process.

At the same time, the Unified Modeling Language has become
popular, and the Object Management Group has announced a major
initiative, Model-Driven Architecture, which lays out a framework
for model interoperability. Common modeling languages and model
interoperability herald the replacement of today's code-driven
development environments with those based on models.

IEEE Software solicits short articles describing and defining
technologies that enable and promote model-driven development,
such as:

* Model semantics and execution
* Domain-specific language concepts
* Aspect-oriented modeling
* Reverse-engineering
* Model-transformation technologies
* Impediments to adoption
* Combining models with code
* Systems engineering
* Tools, factories, and meta-technologies
* Case studies

Articles longer than 4000 words (about six magazine pages, including
figures) will be rejected. Short articles, written in a straightforward,
explanatory style, will receive preference. A unified, common vocabulary
will be encouraged and enforced. Very short position papers must be
accompanied by a list of terms presumed to have been predefined.
Descriptions of specific modeling notations are discouraged, and calls
for additions to UML will be referred to the appropriate bodies in OMG.

Detailed guidelines are available from the Guest Editors:

Stephen J. Mellor
Project Technology, USA

Tony Clark
King's College London, UK

Takao Futagami
Toyo Corp., Japan

To submit a manuscript for peer-reviewed consideration, please access
IEEE Computer Society Web-based system, Manuscript Central, at:

Be sure to select the right manuscript type (Special Issue on
Development) when submitting your manuscript. Send a separate email
the title of your paper and a 75-150 word abstract, but excluding the
names. If you wish to be a reviewer, email us at,
and you
will be sent a number of abstracts from which you can choose.

Important Dates:

   15 March 2003 Submissions Due
   23 May    2003 Authors Notified
   13 June   2003 Final Papers Due

The Special Issue is in need of reviewers that are knowledgeable
in the field--such as the recipients of this note :)  We plan to
send a list of abstracts to each reviewer to select some papers
to review.  If you are willing to review some number of papers,
(preferably between three and five, but any number will do!),
please send us a note.  The deadline for reviews is early May.

To remove yourself from this list please mail
