*** Call For Submissions - ChaMDE08 ***
*** Workshop on Challenges in Model-Driven Software Engineering ***

To be held in conjunction with the MoDELS 2008 conference, Toulouse, France

ORGANISERS: Ragnhild Van Der Straeten (VUB), Stefan Van Baelen (KUL), 
Tom Mens (UMH)

Model-Driven Engineering is about creating, transforming, generating, 
interpreting, weaving models using modelling languages, tools, etc. 
After more than a decade of research in MDE, still a lot of fundamental 
and practical issues remain. Therefore this workshop wants to address 
the question of how to proceed next and wants to identify the future 
challenges in MDE.

The objective of the workshop is to provide a forum for people from 
academia as well as industry people to: identify obstacles to MDE 
research and practice; facilitate transfer of research ideas to 
industry; propose “revolutionary” novel ideas; proclaim important 
challenges that are either fundamental or pragmatic.


Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of about 5 pages in 
LNCS style. It is important that these abstracts concisely communicate 
the challenges presented. This should include a description of one or 
more important current problems in MDE that need to be addressed, as 
well as one or more suggested approaches to tackle these problems. 
Consider to submit the challenges you feel are important. The workshop 
seeks original research statements. Papers with a long term vision, 
providing revolutionary new ways of thinking about MDE, and “grand 
challenges” in model-driven software engineering are particularly welcomed.

The program committee of this workshop is rather a selection committee 
and will pay attention to the novelty of presented ideas. Each author is 
also required to propose a top 3 of the challenges/ideas he/she would 
like to see discussed during the workshop. Electronic submission is 
required. Please send your abstract and challenges in PDF format to:
