CALL FOR PAPERS: 6th ECMFA Traceability Workshop (ECMFA-TW 2010)


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

The two first ECMDA Traceability workshops focused mainly on 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, still the most important
limitation is the availability of tools to support full traceability and
proofs of real usage of
traceability in MBE.

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. These and other issues of traceability in MBE
that have a strong practical focus
are all good topics for papers submitted to the workshop.

  - Tools supporting traceability of model and code artifacts
  - Industrial case studies
  - Practical applications and experience with traceability
  - How, when and for what purposes traceability information should/can
be added
  - 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 4-8 pages following the ACM International
Conference Proceedings Template .

  Please read the Information for ACM authors on the   ACM 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 Series with assigned
