CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS

8th Nordic Workshop on Model Driven Software Engineering (NW-MODE 2010)
co-located with the 4th European Conference on Software Architecture 
(ECSA 2010), 23-26 August 2010 Copenhagen, Denmark

BACKGROUND
The Nordic Workshop on Model Driven Software Engineering brings together 
industry practitioners and academic researchers to share experiences and 
latest research on model driven software engineering and development. 
The workshop is a forum to present experiences and ongoing research in 
software engineering and model-driven engineering in particular, but 
also functions as an event for establishing co-operative research 
projects between the participants and working on joint research papers. 
The workshop provides an open forum, reserving ample time for 
discussions. The workshop has 7 editions of past history. Prior 
instances were held in Reykjavik (Island), Ronneby (Sweden), Grimstad 
(Norway), Tampere (Finland), and Turku (Finland).
Model driven software development approaches (MDE, MDA, MDD) have 
matured and grown out from an academic research community to gain wider 
industrial adoption. They are now perceived as one of the mainstream 
technologies to improve the productivity of software teams and the 
quality of products. Model-driven engineering can bring important 
benefits to software architectures; however there are still challenges 
to be addressed in order to realize a successful integration. This year, 
the NW-MoDE workshop focuses on the relations between model-driven 
paradigm and the software architecture field. This topic is also 
sustained by the existing overlap between the software architecture 
community and the model-driven one, as seen by the publications of the 
MODELS, ECSA, and formerly WICSA conferences. Thus, we encourage 
submissions from software architecture community discussing the 
viability, advantages, and weaknesses of model-driven architecture. We 
encourage in particular submissions presenting industrial experiences on 
integrating software architecture and model-driven engineering.

WORKSHOP PROGRAMME WILL INCLUDE:
• Presentations of the accepted papers
• Invited talk
• Special sessions on selected topics
• Industrial presentations
• Working sessions
• Panel discussion

TOPICS OF INTEREST INCLUDE, BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
• Model-driven development and software architecture
• Experiences and applications: empirical work on modeling and model 
driven engineering, and experiences in working with models in industry;
• Model driven development: model based software and system engineering, 
analysis of models, model transformations, approaches supporting reuse, 
and tool support for modeling;
• Models in Web Services engineering;
• Modeling languages: domain specific languages and profiles, 
standardization activities, language design and engineering, and tool 
support;
• Modeling processes: processes for model driven engineering, and 
modeling of engineering processes;
• Model processing operations: version management of models, model 
integration, model differencing, and model synthesis;
• Quality of models and modeling: measuring quality of models, and 
modeling processes;
• Model-based/driven testing, validation and verification, and
• Other topics: model integration, code generation from models, reverse 
engineering into models, and evolution of models.

PAPER SUBMISSION
The following types of submission are accepted:
• Short papers (4 pages) - describing work in progress or industrial 
experiences,
• Long papers (8 pages) - reporting substantial, completed, and 
previously unpublished research.

Submissions should be written in English and should contain original 
contributions not published elsewhere. Workshop proceedings will be 
published in the ACM Digital Library (pending). The format of the 
submission should follow ACM Formatting Guidelines 
(http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). The 
submission should be done in PDF-format via EasyChair 
(http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=nwmode2010) before May 17, 2010.

The submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two members of the 
programme committee. All submitted papers will be reviewed by members of 
the programme committee. Accepted papers must be presented at the 
workshop by one of the authors. At least one author of each paper should 
register for the workshop.

Very high quality papers from the workshop may be invited for being 
published in a special issue of the Software and Systems Modeling 
(SoSyM) Journal or of the Nordic Journal of Computing (NJC).

SPECIAL SESSIONS
The workshop will also include special sessions. Suggestions for special 
sessions are welcomed from persons which intend to participate in the 
workshop and which are interested in mediating the sessions as well as 
in exchanging information on the topic. The suggestion should include 
the topic, short description of the planned discussion, target 
participants, format, and duration (short 90 minutes, long 180 minutes). 
Suggestions should be sent by email to nw-mode2010@abo.fi.
