Call for Papers:

       OCL 2.0 - Industry standard or scientific playground?

                            October 21, 2003

       Workshop at <<UML>> 2003  San Francisco, California, USA


In 2003, the submission for the latest version of the Object Constraint
Language OCL 2.0 (which was prepared by a joint academic/industrial team)
was adopted by the OMG as part of the UML 2.0 standardization process.
This marks an important step in the development of OCL and is certain to
boost a series of renewed activities in this area. In this situation it
is important to look ahead to the future of OCL. Will OCL become an
industrial standard? What will be its application areas in industry?
What will be OCL's position in academic research? The workshop is
organised as part of the Sixth International Conference on the
Unified Modeling Language <<UML>> 2003 in San Francisco, California, USA,
It continues a series of OCL workshops held at previous UML conferences:
York, 2000 and Toronto, 2001. Following the successful model of its
predecessors this workshop adresses both people from academia and
industrial practitioners. The aim is to provide a forum for the
exchange of views on the future of OCL, to foster the identification of
strategic goals for OCL and increase cooperation within the OCL community.
The workshop will include short (15 min) presentations, parallel sessions
of working groups and a sum-up discussion. The accepted papers will
be made available on the webpage well before the workshop.
Topics of interest include (but are not restricted to):

     * Reports on OCL applications or case studies,
     * Innovative application scenarios,
     * OCL tools,
     * Contributions to the finalization process of OCL 2.0,
     * Extension Profiles for OCL


Submissions should be 10 -- 20 A4 pages. Papers must be submitted by email
as postscript or pdf documents to Peter H. Schmitt (
The organization committee will review the submissions and select papers
according to their relevance and interest for the discussions that will
take place at the workshop.

Accepted papers will be made available at this website well before the
Additionally, they will be published in the Electronic Notes in
Theoretical Computer Science (ENTCS) by Elsevier
in a volume dedicated to the UML 2003 workshops.
The final versions have to be prepared according to the guidelines
given in
