CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

8th International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and
Systems  (MoDELS 2005)

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

http://www.modelsconference.org/

*********************************************

MoDELS 2005 is the premier conference devoted to the topic of model-driven
engineering of software-based systems, and covers both languages and
development frameworks used to create and evolve complex software 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 significant role in the
development of software modeling approaches in both academia and industry,
there is a need to address modeling issues that go beyond the use of the
UML. Initiatives such as the OMG's Model Driven Architecture (MDA) and Model
Integrated Computing (MIC) are a reflection of the desire to shift attention
to the broader problem of providing cost-effective support for model-driven
development. The MoDELS series of conferences is intended to be the premier
venue for the exchange of innovative technical ideas and experience related
to model-driven development of software-based systems.

MoDELS 2005 will include both scientific and experience conference papers,
workshops, tutorials, a doctoral symposium, posters and a tool challenge.
See the conference web site http://www.modelsconference.org/ for the program
details.
