ECMDA-FA'05: CALL FOR TOOLS, TUTORIALS, AND WORKSHOPS

European Conference on Model Driven ArchitectureŽ
Foundations and Applications

November 7-10, 2005, Nuernberg, Germany

http://ecmda-fa.org/

Model driven software engineering concerns the use of models in the
specification, design, analysis, synthesis, deployment, and evolution
of complex software systems. This conference is dedicated to furthering
the state of knowledge and fostering the industrialization of this
methodology. Its focus is on engaging the key European research and
industrial figures in a dialogue which will result in a stronger more
efficient industry, producing more reliable software on the basis of
state-of-the-art research results.

ECMDA consists of academic and industry paper tracks, workshops,
tutorials and tool exhibitions; the latter are combined with a special
tool track. This call describes how to apply for participation in the
workshop, tutorials and tools organization.

WORKSHOPS
===========

Researchers and practitioners interested in organizing a satellite
workshop in the context of ECMDA are invited to submit proposals on
topics related to the conference. For a full list of relevant topics
see the conference site (http://ecmda-fa.org/).

The purpose of the workshops is to provide participants a forum for
presenting novel ideas, and to discuss them in a small and interactive
atmosphere.

Responsibility for the format and organisation of each workshop rests with
the submitters of the workshop proposal, but the ECMDA conference organizers
will provide rooms, audio-visual equipment and other logistical support.

The workshop proposals will be selected by the workshop chair,
under advice of the ECMDA steering committee.

Workshop application
------------------------------

Electronic submissions (in PDF) are to be sent to the workshops
chair: Arend Rensink (mailto:workshops@ecmda-fa.org). For the submission
and acceptance dates see below ("important dates"). Proposals
should include:

- The name and the duration (either half a day, one day, or two days) of the
    proposed workshop.
- A short scientific summary of the topic, including a discussion on
    the relation with the ECMDA topics.
- A description of past versions of the workshop (if any),
    including where possible dates, organisers, submission and
    acceptance counts, attendance.
- Procedures for selecting participants and papers, and expected
    number of participants.
- Plans for dissemination (for example, published proceedings or
    special issues of journals).

For further information consult the ECMDA-FA web site:

TUTORIALS
=========

Researchers and practitioners interested in giving a tutorial at ECMDA
are invited to submit proposals on  topics related to the conference.
For a full list of relevant topics see the conference site
(http://ecmda-fa.org/).

The purpose of the tutorials is to offer participants a way to quickly come
up to date with the various subjects concering MDA.

Tutorial proposals will be selected by the tutorial chair, under advice of
the ECMDA steering committee.

Tutorial proposals
-------------------------

Electronic submissions (in PDF) are to be sent to the tutorial
chair: Jos Warmer (mailto:tutorials@ecmda-fa.org). For the submission
and acceptance dates see below ("important dates"). Proposals
should include:

- The name and the duration (either half a day or two days) of the
    proposed tutorial.
- A short summary of the topic, including a discussion on
    the relation with the ECMDA topics.
- A description of past versions of the tutorial (if any)
- A description of the format of the tutorial
- An indication of the expertise level (Introductory, Intermediate, Advanced)

TOOLS
======

Tool support is crucial for applying MDAŽ. ECMDA pays specific attention
to tools. The special tool track consists of:

- A exhibition area where tool providers can demonstrate their tools to the
    conference attendees.
- A poster area where open source and academic tools can present their
    tools to the conference attendees.
- A tools presentation track, running in parallel to the main sessions of
    the conference.

Each exhibitor will get a slot in the tools presentation track, which can
be filled with a presentation about their tools.  Academic and open source
tools providers with posters will also get a slot in the tools presentation
track.

A tentative, but non exhaustive list of topics for the type of tools we
are looking for is:

- Tools for Metamodelling
- Tools for Model Transformations
- Tools for Defining Modeling Languages
- Tools for Reasoning about Models
- Tools for Model Checking, Consistency & Verification
- Tools for Model Execution
- Tools for Model Simulation
- Tools for Model Testing

Tools may either focus on one specific aspect, or offer a broader
collection of functionality. Furthermore, tools may focus on a specific
application domain, like e.g. realtime systems or web based system, or
be general purpose.

Tools Application
------------------------

If you are interested in presenting an MDAŽ tool at ECMDA, you should
send a proposal to the tools chair Jos Warmer (mailto:tools@ecmda-fa.org).
For the submission and acceptance dates see below ("important dates").
With your application provide:

- Your affiliation
- A comprehensive (two to four page) description of the tool to be
   presented, with emphasis on the aspects that make the tool into an MDAŽ tool.
- Whether your tool is academic, open source, or commercial
- Whether you want to participate in the tools presentation track.
