                     Call for Papers

7th International Conference on the Unified Modeling Language <<UML>> 2004

October 11 - 15, 2004


The Unified Modeling Language (UML) has rapidly become the lingua-franca of
the software community, both in industry and academia. In doing so it has
focused attention on the software modeling process, whether with languages
inside or outside the UML family. The UML series of conferences is the
premier venue for the exchange of innovative technical ideas and experiences
relating to modeling of software-based systems.

UML 2004 will include conference papers, workshops, tutorials, posters and a
tool exhibition. We invite three kinds of papers; each accepted paper will
be allocated the same length slot for presentation in the conference

1. RESEARCH PAPERS describing innovative research on any aspect of modeling.
2. EXPERIENCE PAPERS describing experience of significant application of
modeling. Such papers will be judged by the quality of their contribution to
industrial best-practice (rather than to the body of research knowledge). 3.
TOOL PAPERS describing innovative work on modeling-related tools. Such
papers may concern tools with any licensing model (e.g. commercial or open
source). They will be judged on their interest to the modeling community,
and on the contribution they make to future tool-building within it.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Model transformations
- Lessons learned from modeling
- Tool support for any aspect of modeling or model use
- Models in the development and maintenance process
- Model evaluation, formal or informal
- Metamodeling
- Model-driven engineering
- Semantics of modeling languages
- Domain-specific and concern-oriented modeling

Papers concerning modeling languages other than UML are welcome, but authors
must bear in mind that their readers will, in general, be most familiar with

Important dates:
- Hard Deadline for Abstracts:      21 March 2004
- Hard Deadline for Submissions:   31 March 2004
- Notification to Authors:         31 May 2004
- Final Version of Accepted Papers: 10 July 2004

Paper Submissions: Submit your manuscript electronically in Postscript or
PDF using the Springer LNCS style:

Full papers should be 5-15 pages in length. Papers will undergo a thorough
process of review by a program committee comprising leading experts from
academia and industry; however, papers that are too long may be rejected
without review. Proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS
series. All papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted
simultaneously for publication elsewhere.

Workshop, Tutorial and Poster Submissions: Proposals for advanced workshops,
tutorials and posters are requested. Details of the proposal process are on
the conference web site.

See the conference web site for details.
