[ apologies for multiple copies. ] _________________________________________________________ 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:email@example.com). 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: http://ecmda-fa.org/ 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:firstname.lastname@example.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) For further information consult the ECMDA-FA web site: http://ecmda-fa.org/ 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:email@example.com). 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. For further information please consult the ECMDA-FA web site: http://ecmda-fa.org/ IMPORTANT DATES =============== Workshop proposals due: February 18th 2005 Tutorial proposals due: April 1st 2005 Tools proposals due: June 10th 2005 Notification of workshop acceptance: March 7th 2005 Notification of tutorial acceptance: May 1st 2005 Notification of tool acceptance: July 1st 2005 Model Driven ArchitectureŽ is an initiative of the Object Management Group (OMG).
