Workshop "Best Practices for Model-Driven Software Development"

http://www.softmetaware.com/oopsla2004/mdsd-workshop.html

OOPSLA & GPCE 2004, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
http://www.oopsla.org/, http://gpce04.gpce.org

Monday, 25 October
8:30-17:00 Full day

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

This workshop follows in the footsteps of highly successful workshops
on the topic of:

"Generative Techniques in the Context of Model-Driven Architecture"
at OOPSLA03 and OOPSLA02.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Call for Position Papers:
Potential participants are asked to submit a two-page (or longer) position
paper detailing their experience with Model-Driven Software Development
(http://www.mdsd.info) and model-driven generative techniques, their
perspective on one or more of the topics indicated below, and their planned
contribution to the workshop.

We seek concrete case studies and potential topics of discussion in order
to ground the workshop in real-world issues.

Please mail your submission (in PDF or Word) to:
Jorn Bettin (jorn.bettin@softmetaware.com).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The workshop aims to bring together practitioners, researchers, academics,
and students to discuss best practices for the development of model-driven
software, and to discuss the state-of-the-art of tool support for MDSD,
including emerging Open Source tool offerings for model-driven
development of software systems.

Topics of interest include:

* synergy between MDSD, components and MDA tools;
* the agile aspect of MDSD;
* implementing domain specific languages on the basis of the UML [2.0]
   Infrastructure;
* notations for model-to-model transformations;
* a possible definition of a common standard notation for model
   transformation within the context of the OMG's MDA;
* modeling variability in functionality within product lines;
* model weaving and model transformation;
* pre and post-conditions for transformations;
* transformation and traceability;
* organization of hierarchical transformation libraries;
   transformations as assets;
* applications of higher level transformations
  (transformations generating transformations);
* verification of transformation systems;
* styles of model-driven generators;
* model-driven template languages
   (language design, template execution environment,
   debugging, template editors, management of template code);
* specification of heuristics and manual design decisions;
* generation of code and non-code artifacts (e.g. tests, measures, etc.);
* influence of MDSD on software architecture;
* MDSD in distributed team environments
   (large projects, offshore development);
* industrial applications of MDSD.

The goal is to share experience, assess the state-of-the-art and the
state-of-the-practice, consolidate successful techniques, and identify
the most promising application areas and open issues for future work.
