European Workshop on Milestones, Models and Mappings for Model-Driven
Architecture - 3M4MDA 2006
11th July 2006, Bilbao, Spain

* new deadline for submissions: 15th May, 2006 *

In conjunction with the European Conference on Model-Driven Architecture
- ECMDA 2006


Metamodelling and model transformation techniques have advanced quite a
lot in the last years, fostering in this way the adoption of
model-driven engineering practices. Once these more advanced techniques
became available they started being applied in the model-driven
development of large (distributed) IT systems. 

Many issues have risen from the practical application of the
model-driven approach, most notably those that relate to the purpose and
the characteristics of the system under design and that translate to
requirements on milestones, models and mappings to be applied in the
model-driven development process. These issues should be taken into
account in the next generation of model-driven methods and modelling

This workshop aims at helping the convergence of the research and
practical application by focussing on the *milestones* in the
model-driven development process, the *models* to be used, and
*mappings* to be established between these models. The program of the
workshop will consist of an invited keynote speech and a number of
(position) paper presentations.


We invite original submissions from both researchers and practitioners
in the following (non-exhaustive) list of topics:

* Model driven design process, milestones and design guidelines for
applying MDA;
* Modelling techniques (design concepts, languages, metamodels, profiles
and specification frameworks) for large-scale distributed IT systems;
* Modelling techniques for Service-Oriented Architectures,
Component-Based Architectures and Event-Driven Architectures;
* Platform models and generic platform types;
* Platform-independent modelling techniques;
* Positioning and relating levels of platform-independent modelling;
* Use of viewpoints, relations and correspondences between viewpoints;
* Limitations of UML for MDA, alternative languages and modelling
* Implications of (middleware) platform characteristics for the
model-driven design process;
* Modelling of non-functional and Quality-of-Service characteristics;
* Requirements and design criteria for model transformation or mappings;
* Mappings and transformation patterns from platform-independent models
to specific technology platforms (J2EE, Web Services, CORBA, .NET,


The workshop welcomes submissions of full papers (10 to 15 pages long)
and position papers (around 5 pages) in the Springer Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (LNCS) format. All submissions will be formally peer
reviewed by at least three reviewers. Accepted papers will be published
in workshop proceedings, as part of the CTIT Technical Report series
(ISSN 1381-3625). At least one author of each accepted paper should
participate in the workshop.

Submissions should be sent in PDF format by email to
