>    Call for Papers: Model-Driven Development
>            Special Issue Publication: September/October 2003

> 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

> 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
