The latest OMG initiative (already three years old), called MDA - for "Model
Driven Architecture" - puts forward the idea that future process development
will be centered around the models, thus keeping independent development
from underlying platform technology. The first significant result of the MDA
paradigm for engineers is the possibility to build application models that
can be conveniently ported to new, emerging technologies - implementation
languages, middleware, etc.- with minimal effort and risk.

In the real-time area, this model-oriented trend is also very active and
promising. But real-time systems are different from general-purpose systems
at last because of their behavior aspects. Indeed, it is one of the main
issues in their development.
This workshop aims to bring together members of the various communities
concerned by the behavior across a wide range of domains. The workshop will
provide them with a central forum where to debate the place of behavior in
specification, design, implementation, verification and maintenance of
software and systems in the context of the distributed, real-time and
embedded areas.
This workshop seeks contributions from researchers and practitioners
interested on all behavior aspects of system development. We are especially
interested in papers outlining how behavior is addressed in the different
communities and how these communities see the balance between structure and
behavior in software and systems.
To achieve this purpose, SIVOES-Behavior solicits then abstract papers
(about 4 pages) related to, but not limited to, the following principal
* Models and meta-models.
* Simulation.
* Verification and validation.
* Code generation.
* Real-time and reactive systems.
* Hybrid systems
* ...


To participate to this workshop, send a position paper via email to
Sébastien Gérard ( Submissions should not exceed 4
pages (10 pt., single space) and should be in one of the following formats:
plain text, postscript, pdf or word.
Submissions will be evaluated based on their relevance to the workshop
theme, originality, and on ability to reveal issues that may animate
discussions during the workshop. The accepted papers will be placed on the
workshop web site before the date of the workshop.


Submission deadline: August 23th, 2004
