Call for Papers

6th International Workshop on Graph Transformation and Visual Modeling 
Techniques (GT-VMT 2007)


Satellite Event of ETAPS 2007, March 24 - April 1, 2007, Braga, Portugal

31 March - 1 April 2007


GT-VMT 2007 is the sixth workshop of a series that serves as a forum for 
all researchers and practitioners interested in the use of graph-based 
notation, techniques and tools for the specification, modeling, 
validation, manipulation and verification of complex systems. Due to the 
variety of languages and methods used in different domains, the aim of 
the workshop is to promote engineering approaches that starting from 
high-level specifications and robust formalizations allow for the design 
and the implementation of such visual modeling techniques, hence 
providing effective tool support at the semantic level (e.g., for model 
analysis, transformation, and consistency management). Contributions are 
welcome from communities working on popular visual modeling notations 
like UML, Petri nets, Graph Transformation, Business Process/Workflow 

This year's workshop will have an additional focus on application of 
graph transformation and visual modeling techniques in engineering, 
biology, and medicine.

Suggested areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the 
following topics:

* visual language definition (incl. meta-modeling, grammars, graphical 
parsing, etc.)
* static semantics of visual languages (incl. OCL, graph patterns, etc.)
* dynamic semantics of visual languages (incl. simulation, animation, 
compilation, etc.)
* model transformations
* visual language analysis (incl. verification & validation, static 
analysis techniques)
* model / graph-based approaches to service-oriented computing and GRID 
* application of graph transformations and visual modeling techniques in 
engineering, biology, and medicine
* case studies and novel application areas
* tool support
