We would like to remind you that the deadline for submission is  

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

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

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  

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
