Call for Papers
2nd ECMDA Workshop on Model-Driven Tool & Process Integration
      In conjunction with
ECMDA, 2009, University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands

Duration: half-a-day
Date: 24 June 2009

Workshop Description
Model Based Engineering (MBE) is on the advance. The reason for this 
advance is the promise of handling the increase of complexity within the 
software and its development process by raising the level of abstraction 
using models as information storage. In the past years tool vendors 
adapted the approach of using models as information storage of their 
applications utilizing the advantages of these technologies (e.g. model 
querying, model consistency, implicit interface, notification 
mechanisms). Other vendors now provide the possibility of model import 
and export, some tool vendors do not respond to this trend out of 
different reasons so that adapters are provided by 3^rd party vendors. 
All that shows, that MBE has made good progress, concerning the 
information representation. Now that the tool internal information 
becomes available as models, the problem of integration and distribution 
still exists, and is one of the next barriers to tackle on the way to an 
efficient and productive MBE approach.

The main concern of this workshop is the integration and distribution of 
these information and tools and the underlying techniques which are 
required. The first ECMDA Model-Driven Tool & Process Integration 
Workshop was very well attended and focused on integration problems in 
complex software development processes. During the workshop the 
discussions were mostly driven by practical questions due to a high 
number of participants from industry.

Topics include, but are not limited to

* Tool integration frameworks (e.g. Repositories, Interfaces,
  Adapters, Transport layer)
* Distributed tool chains
* Management of tool chains
* Granularity of access
* Security and Access Control of models and tools
* Adaptation between meta modelling frameworks (e.g. MOF 1.4 , CMOF,
* Model and model element identification
* Model Driven Enterprise Service Bus
* Model Driven process integration
* Model Based System Management
* Distributed Modelling technologies (e.g. model querying)
* Problem scenarios, User requirements, Practice reports & Success

Format of the Workshop
The workshop will comprise presentations of accepted papers, tool 
presentations, and keynotes. Papers should be submitted in advance and 
will be reviewed by at least two members of the program committee. All 
accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings. It is planned 
to publish bounded proceedings by CTIT Proceedings series via ECMDA. 
Otherwise the workshop can also publish by the Fraunhofer Verlag 
(Publisher) with ISBN. At least one author for each accepted paper 
should register for the workshop at the conference and present the 
paper. For every accepted paper a second reader will make a second 
presentation containing questions and critiques. This shall facilitate 
exchange of ideas and stimulate discussions among the workshop participant.

Paper Submission
Prospective authors are invited to submit papers for presentation in any 
of the areas listed above. Scientific papers, position papers and 
experience reports are welcome equally. Only papers in English will be 
accepted. Length of papers should be 5 pages minimum and must not exceed 
12 pages formatted in LNCS format 
( Papers have to present 
original contributions not concurrently submitted elsewhere.

Workshop participants should register with ECMDA 2009 registration system.

The organizers participate in the MODELPLEX project 
( co-funded by the European Commission 
under the IST Sixth Framework Programme which focuses among other things 
on many of the items listed above.
