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.
