Workshop on Modeling in Software Engineering @ ICSE 2008 (MISE 2008)
                         Leipzig, Germany
                          May 10-11, 2008


Workshop Overview
The purpose of this workshop is to promote the use of models in the 
engineering of software systems. In particular, we are interested in the 
exchange of innovative technical ideas and experiences related to 
modeling: modeling notations, abstractions and modeling strategies, use 
of models, and so on. Models have long been used in the development of 
complex systems, and their use is becoming more prevalent in software 
development, as methodologies and tools become available that can 
manipulate software models.

This workshop will provide a forum for discussing the challenges 
associated with modeling software and with incorporating modeling 
practices into the software development process. We are interested in 
model-related research topics at all levels of the software development, 
including use of models during software execution. A list of topics 

* Modeling notations and tools
* Metamodeling
* Abstractions and modeling methodologies
* Model-based analyses
* Model transformation and composition
* Model evaluation
* Model management
* Extracting models from software artifacts (e.g., program understanding)
* Use of models for downstream activities (e.g., generating test cases, 
using models at runtime)
* Empirical studies
* Domain-specific modeling
* Further uses of modeling

Important Dates

24 January, 2008   Submission of workshop papers
7 February, 2008  Notification of acceptance
21 February, 2008    Camera-ready papers due

Workshop format

The workshop will be held over one and a half days, starting on the 
afternoon of the first day.  On the first day and the morning of the 
second day, paper presentations will be structured into sessions of 
thematically related papers. In order to foster lively discussions, each 
session will be structured as follows:
* A 15-20 minute presentation per paper by an author, summarising the 
key points in the paper.
* A 30-minute slot at the end of the session for open discussions 
related to or stimulated by the papers presented.
The remaining half-day will be spent in working groups or an open-plan 
discussion (depending on the number of participants) based on topics 
collected by session chairs during paper presentations and discussions 
during the first day of the workshop. The workshop will be summarized 
either in a half-hour of summary presentations from each working group 
or a summary presentation by one of the organizers.

Submission guidelines
Although the workshop is open to all, prospective participants are 
invited to submit a 4-6 page position paper. All submissions will be 
reviewed by members of the program committee and the organizing 
committee for quality and relevance. Submissions must be PDF in IEEE 
format.  See the workshop website (http://s01.sse.cs.tu-bs.de/mse08) for 
instructions on how to submit to CyberChairPro.  Accepted papers will 
become part of the workshop proceedings.
