                         MoDELS 2005

8th International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and
Systems
(formerly the UML series of conferences)

October 2 - 7, 2005
Half Moon Resort, Montego Bay, JAMAICA

http://www.modelsconference.org/

****************************************************************************
Model-driven system development has long been used in the development of
complex hardware systems. It is becoming more prevalent in complex software
or combined hardware and software systems development as methodologies and
tools become available that can manipulate software models from very
abstract concepts through refinement and testing.

MoDELS 2005 is the first conference devoted to the topic of model-driven
engineering, covering both languages and systems used to create complex
systems. This conference is both an expansion and a re-direction of previous
Unified Modeling Language (UML) conferences, and replaces that series of
conferences for 2005 and beyond. While the UML has played a large role in
software modeling in both academia and industry, other languages and systems
are also used for model-driven systems development. The MoDELS series of
conferences is the premier venue for the exchange of innovative technical
ideas and experiences relating to model-driven approaches in the development
of software-based systems.

MoDELS 2005 will include both scientific and industrial/experience
conference papers, workshops, tutorials, a doctoral symposium, posters and a
tool exhibition. (See the website for the industrial/experience track
call-for-papers, tutorial call-for-papers, and workshop call-for-papers.) We
invite scientific research papers describing innovative research on
model-driven systems development, and innovative research on other aspects
of modeling. This also includes well-designed empirical studies and
innovative automation solutions and tool architectures.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

- Model-driven development languages
- Model-driven development methodologies, approaches, and techniques
- Model transformations
- Empirical studies of modeling and model-driven development
- Tool support for any aspect of model-driven development or model use
- Models in the development and maintenance process
- Model evaluation, formal or heuristics
- Metamodeling
- Semantics of modeling languages
- Domain-specific and concern-oriented modeling

PAPER SUBMISSIONS:
Submit your manuscript electronically in Postscript or PDF using the
Springer LNCS style: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html

Abstract and paper submittal will be available through the web site by
January, 2005.

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. Scientific proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag
in the LNCS series. All papers must be original, unpublished, and not
submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere.

Proposals for advanced workshops, tutorials and posters are requested. See
the conference web site http://www.modelsconference.org/ for details.
