Call for Papers
5th ECMDA Traceability Workshop (ECMDA-TW 2009)
co-located with ECMDA-FA 2009
University of Twente, The Netherlands
23-26 June 2009

Traceability is an important theoretical and practical challenge in 
model driven development. Traceability mechanisms are needed in 
processes involving automatic model to model transformations, in 
text/code generation, and in manual modelling activities, as well as 
end-to-end traceability. We are facing challenges of keeping models 
consistently synchronised, models and text/code in consistent states, 
and mixing manual updates with automatic processes.

The two first ECMDA Traceability workshops focused mainly on solving 
theoretical and technical aspects of traceability, and concluded that 
many of the theoretical and technical challenges of traceability are 
well understood. As a result, the workshop focus was shifted more 
towards applications of traceability in industrial settings.

There are still unsolved theoretical and technical issues of 
traceability. However, most important is the limited availability of 
tools to support full traceability and proofs of real usage of 
traceability in model driven development.

Therefore, we especially invite papers presenting practical solutions 
that address traceability issues, as well as papers that present 
traceability tool solutions. We also seek papers that address how and 
when traceability information should be added, how it should be kept 
up-to-date, and how, when and for what purposes it can be used. Another 
important topic is the semantics of trace links. These, and other issues 
of traceability in MDD that have a strong practical focus are all good 
topics for papers submitted to the workshop.

- Tools supporting traceability of model and code artifacts
- Practical applications and experience with traceability
- How it should be kept up-to-date
- How, when and for what purposes traceability information should/can be 
- Novel theoretical and technical approaches to handle model-based 

Other topics on traceability in model-based development are also welcomed.

We ask for papers from 5-10 pages following the Springer LNCS format. 
Please read the Information for LNCS authors on the Springer web site.

Each paper will be reviewed by three members of the programme committee.

Please send a PDF-version of your paper to goran.k.olsen |at|

Proceedings will be published in the CTIT Proceedings Series with 
assigned ISBN/ISSN.
