3d International Workshop on Model Transformation with ATL
			MtATL 2011

July 1, 2011
Zurich, Switzerland


Co-located with Tools Europe 2011 Federated Conferences


Model transformation is an essential operation in Model-Driven Engineering.
It may be used to generate lower-level code from higher-level models, but
its application scope has now gone beyond Model-Driven Engineering. After
the success of the first two occurences of International Workshop on Model
Transformations with ATL (MtATL 2009, 2010), this 3d event of the series
aims at showing new applications for model transformations, as well as at
improving the technology.
Although the experience of using ATL so far is very positive, ATL is an
evolving technology that is still a subject of research. Feedback from the
ATL users and researchers is crucial for identifying potential language
extensions and incorporating research results into the language. The
connection between the language designers and the language users guarantees
that ATL stays adequate to the real needs for model transformations
encountered in non-trivial industrial and academic applications. We are
particularly interested in what are the desired major quality
characteristics of ATL such as expressivity, usability, scalability,
maintainability, performance, and robustness. The main purpose of this
workshop is to get together users and researchers in the domain of model
transformations both from the academia and the industry in order to share


Topics of interest to the workshop are typically about applying ATL model
transformations to new problems, and extending ATL with new features. They
notably include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Industrial applications of ATL
- ATL transformation performance and optimization
- Transformation modularity, reusability, and composition
- Higher-order and reflective transformations with ATL
- Alternative execution semantics
- Formalization of execution semantics
- ATL in the context of Semantic web (interoperability with OWL,
transformation of ontologies, interaction with OWL reasoning mechanism)
- Semantic bridges with tools for formal analysis (e.g., Petri nets tools,
Alloy, Maude, MatLab)
- Debugging, profiling, and testing of transformations
- Verification of transformations
- ATL language and/or tools extensions
