4th Workshop on Model-Driven Tool & Process Integration

In conjunction with ECMFA 2011, University of Birmingham, UK.

Date: June 7, 2011




Workshop Description:


Model Driven Engineering (MDE) 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 to import and export models. But still, out of different reasons some tool vendors do not respond to this trend. In this case 3rd party vendors provide adapters. All that shows, that MDE has made good progress, 

with regard to the information representation. Now that 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 MDE environment. 

The workshop in general addresses the area of application lifecycle management. Its main concern is the integration of tools and efficient distribution of information in development environments underlying with process based on MDE techniques such as model transformation.

The aim of the workshop is to join researchers and practitioners in the field of development tool and process integration. 


Topics include, but are not limited to

-Application Lifecycle Management - ALM

-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 modeling frameworks (e.g. MOF 1.4 , CMOF, EMF, EMOF)

-Model and model element identification

-Model Driven Enterprise Service Bus

-Model Driven process integration

-Development process formalization and automation

-Change and Requirements Management in development processes

-Model Based System Management

-Distributed Modeling technologies (e.g. model querying)

-Problem scenarios, User requirements, Practice reports & Success stories


This year's edition of the workshop encourages in particular the submission of papers addressing the domain of embedded systems engineering as a key domain in European industry. 

However, the scope of the workshop is not limited to this domain and all submission will be evaluated based on their general contribution to theory and practice of tool and process integration.

The workshop is open to everybody interested in increasing the efficiency in model-driven software engineering.

Based on the experiences gained from earlier version of the workshop a high number of participants especially from industry is expected.

Format of the Workshop:

The workshop will comprise presentations of accepted papers, tool presentations, and a keynote from industry. 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 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 ECMFA 2011 registration system.
