The intention of NWUML is to bring together researchers and Ph.D. 
students in the fields of software modelling, including model-based 
development methods and tools in general and UML-based modelling in 
particular. NWUML intends to be an open forum with ample of time set 
aside for panels and discussion. The workshop intends to function as 
a platform for establishing co-operative research projects between 
the participants in the region. 
NWUML’06 is organized June 12th – 14th by Agder University College 
in Grimstad, Norway. 
The workshop programme will include: 
• Presentation of research papers
• Workshop discussions
• Integration Contest
 
Topics
------
The aim of this workshop is to anticipate and influence the future 
trends and to focus on the issues that are important to expected 
delegates. Authors are therefore invited to submit papers on topics 
related to a general model driven engineering perspective and from 
the perspective of using UML as a basic modelling language. 
The topics include, but are not limited to:
• Model-driven development: System and software engineering; 
analysis of models; model transformation; reuse approaches; tool 
support. 
• Language Profiles: Domain specific language profiles; 
standardization activities; modular language design; tool support.
• Others: Integration; code generation from models; reverse 
engineering into models; model synthesis.
 
Paper Submissions
-----------------
Electronically submission of full papers (at most 15 pages) or 
short papers (4-6 pages are recommended) as PDF before April 3rd. 
Submissions should be previously unpublished and written in English. 
Papers should be formatted using the Springer LNCS style: 
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html. 
For submission rules see the conference webpage. 
Ph.D students are encouraged to submit papers about their ongoing 
or planned research. All submitted papers will be reviewed by 
members of the programme committee.  
Accepted papers must be presented at the workshop by one of the 
authors. All accepted papers will be published as a university 
technical report. 
Important Dates (hard deadlines):
• Deadline for paper submission: April 3rd, 2006
• Notification of acceptance:  May 2nd, 2006
• Camera-ready version due:  May 22nd, 2006
 
Integration Contest
-------------------
In order to get a better understanding about what it means to 
integrate different modelling tools, we will have an integration 
contest. We have nice prices for the best solutions. The task is to 
integrate a modelling tool of your choice (e.g. Rational Rose, 
Coral) into the Eclipse EMF, either in theory or in practice. The 
contest will be composed of three subtasks that can be tackled 
individually:
1. Be able to read and handle Eclipse EMF models within your tool 
of choice.
2. Write models in tool of choice and let Eclipse EMF handle them.
3. Joint access to a model from both EMF and your tool of choice.
