                    CALL FOR PAPERS


                       UML 2004

                   October 12, 2004
                   Lisbon, Portugal



Precise modeling is essential to the success of the OMG's Model Driven
Architecture initiative. OCL can play a role at multiple levels. At the
meta-level (M2), queries, views and transformations are subjects that
will be vital to the success of the OMG's Model Driven
Architecture Initiative.
Will OCL 2.0 become an essential part of the
standard and what will be its application areas in industry? At
the modeling
level (M1) OCL allows for the precision needed to write
executable models.
Currently OCL is restricted to side-effect free queries. Can OCL
be extended
to become a full high-level executable language with
side-effects? How will
the powerful features of OCL 2.0 be used in the Model Driven Engineering
approach? Is OCL 2.0 more powerful than needed, or is not
powerful enough?
This workshop aims at bringing together people from academia that
are expected
to report on inspiring ideas for innovative application scenarios
and tools,
and industrial practitioners, which are expected to provide statements on
their view of the future of OCL in the context of Model Driven



Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* OCL - the query language for Model Driven Engineering.
* Contributions to the standardization process of QVT.
* Extensions of OCL to support QVT.
* Reports on OCL or QVT case studies, tools, or applications.
* Theoretical/fundamental aspects of OCL.
* Case studies for precise modeling using OCL.
* OCL as an Executable UML language.
* Dynamic concepts in OCL.



Papers should be 5-15 pages in length. Submit your manuscript in
Postscript or
PDF to, using the Springer LNCS style:

All papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted
for publication elsewhere. 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.

A paper-based proceedings of OCL&MDE'2004, including all accepted
position papers,
will be distributed to the participants. An electronic-based
edition of the same
proceedings will be made available in the workshop website.
