                  CALL FOR PAPERS

                     MDAFA 2003


                 June 26-27, 2003
               University of Twente
             Enschede, The Netherlands



Model Driven Architecture (MDA) proposed by OMG is an approach based 
on the separation of the specification of system functionality
from the specification of the implementation of that functionality 
on a specific platform. It is aimed at making the software assets 
more resilient to changes caused by the emerging technologies and 
makes the role of modeling and models in the current software 
development much more important. The MDA initiative covers a wide 
spectrum of research areas some of them are already well established 
and some are newly emerged. Further efforts are required to bring 
them into a coherent approach based on open standards and supported 
by matured tools and techniques. The goal of this workshop is to 
understand the foundations, to analyze the state of-the-art, to 
identify problems and solutions, to outline future research
directions and to share experience in applying MDA techniques and 



Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Ontologies and domain-specific models 
* MDA development process 
* Meta modeling and meta models for PIMs and PSMs 
* Model transformations: foundations and heuristics 
* Model composition 
* Aspect-oriented modeling 
* Variability management 
* Model validation and model checking 
* MDA technologies (UML, OCL, XMI) 
* Executability of models 
* Code generation based on UML profiles 
* MDA tools 
* Experience reports 



Two types of papers are expected: extended abstract papers (no longer 
than 4 pages) and full papers (no longer than 12 pages). Accepted 
papers will be included in the workshop technical report. Selected 
full papers will be considered for the Special issue of Science of 
Computer Programming (Elsevier) on Model Driven Architecture: 
Foundations and Applications edited by Mehmet Aksit. The papers 
(in PDF format and preferably formatted according to the Elsevier 
Publishing rules) should be submitted by email to 
not later than May 16, 2003



Submission Due: May 16, 2003
Notification of Acceptance: June 9, 2003
Camera-ready Due: June 13, 2003
Workshop Date: June 26-27, 2003
