               MODEL DRIVEN ENGINEERING

OVERVIEW

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 Queries/Views/Transformations
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 Engineering.

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

TOPICS OF INTEREST

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.

SUBMISSION DETAILS

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

All papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted simultaneously
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.
