  OCLApps 2006: OCL for (Meta-)Models in Multiple Application Domains
                http://st.inf.tu-dresden.de/OCLApps2006/

                         in conjunction with
                 the ACM/IEEE 9th International Conference on
       Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems - MoDELS 2006
                  http://www.modelsconference.org/
             (formerly the UML series of conferences)

=======================================================================

Objectives
----------

In recent years, MDA and associated MDE methodologies, approaches and
languages emphasized the role that OCL has to play in MDE development.
Beyond using OCL in specifying assertions and operations, new
approaches and visions reveal beneficial usage of OCL to specify model
behavior, compilation and evaluation of models, model transformation,
and code generation.  All these usages concern modeling languages in
general, and UML in particular, as a modeling language.

This workshop solicits research contributions and experience reports
related to the adequacy of OCL specifications to the mentioned usages,
OCL refactoring and extensions in order to support new usages of OCL
specifications and new applications domain.

Topics
------

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- OCL as a textual formalism for specifying (meta-)models,
  irrespective of the abstraction level.
- Use of OCL in Domain Specific Languages (DSLs).
- Use of OCL in specifying model behavior. Extensions required for
  this usage. Examples of applications.
- Using OCL expressions in specifying aspects.
- OCL usage for navigating and querying models and databases.
- OCL as a neutral standard for specifying multi-tier applications.
- Tools supporting model compilation and execution.
- OCL and Model Transformations. Needed extensions. Experience reports.
- Using OCL specifications in metamodeling. Completeness and
  correctness of well-formedness rules.
- OCL and business process modeling
- OCL and ontology modeling. Experience reports on OCL usage in the
  Semantic Web application domain.
- Experience reports on OCL usage in profile specification and profile
  usage in application domains. OCL for the implementation of domain
  specification languages.
- Aspects needing to be clarified in OCL specifications, for example
  the semantics of undefined values and the evaluation of expressions
  containing undefined values, or overriding OCL expressions.

Workshop Format
---------------

The workshop continues the series of OCL workshops held at previous
UML/MoDELS conferences: York (2000), Toronto (2001), San Francisco
(2003), Lisbon (2004) and Montego Bay (2005).  Similar to its
predecessors, the workshop addresses both people from academia and
industry.  The aim is to provide a forum for exchanging views on OCL
w. r. t. the visions of MDA and MDE, languages and methodologies.
Furthermore, the workshop fosters research groups working on important
research domains like Semantic Web or Business Process Modeling to
consider the usage of OCL and to specify language needed extensions.

The workshop will include short (about 15 min) presentations, parallel
sessions of working groups, and sum-up discussions.

Paper Format and Publication
----------------------------

Full papers should be 5-15 pages in length. Authors should use the
Springer LNCS style and procedure, see:
http://www.springer.com/east/home/computer/lncs?SGWID=5-164-7-72376-0)
Preliminary proceedings will be available at the workshop.  Also, the
accepted papers will be published online at: http://planetmde.org and
http://www-st.inf.tu-dresden.de/oclportal/ (the OCL Portal).  The
organizers are in the process of contacting international publishers
in order to publish polished versions of workshop papers.  A revised
version (considering the feedback from reviewers and the event) of the
two best papers nominate after the workshop, will be published by
Springer LNCS series in the MoDELS'06 Workshop Proceedings.

Paper Submission:
-----------------
