2nd International Workshop on Model Comparison in Practice (IWMCP) 2011

collocated with ICMT/TOOLS 2011

June 30 - Zurich, Switzerland

----------------------------------------------------------------------------


OVERVIEW

Model Driven Engineering elevates models to first class artefacts of the
software development process. To facilitate multi-user collaboration and
enable version management and seamless evolution of models and
metamodels, support for robust and performant model comparison and
differencing mechanisms is essential.

Previous research has demonstrated that mechanisms used for comparison
and differencing of text-based artefacts (e.g. source code) are not
sufficient for comparing models, as they are unaware of the structure
and the semantics of the compared artefacts.

To date, several model-specific model comparison approaches have been
proposed, each demonstrating different characteristics and focusing on
particular sub-problems. For instance, model comparison techniques have
been adopted for software refactoring, for transformation testing,
to support the coupled evolution of metamodel and models, or to analyse
existing artefacts with respect to some criteria. However the consensus
is that this research area is still young and more research is required
in order to achieve the full potential of model comparison.

The goal of the workshop is to gather together both researchers in the
area of model comparison and differencing to report novel results, and
especially adopters of existing approaches to present their experiences
and provide insights on issues encountered when applying these
approaches in practice.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

All submissions will be formally evaluated by three reviewers. Papers
must be submitted as PDF and strictly adhere to the ACM SIG proceedings
format. Papers must not exceed ten (10) pages in this format, including
all text, references, appendices, and figures. Paper submissions will be
made electronically via the workshop submission web page, using the
EasyChair service. All submissions must be original work, and must not
have been previously published, nor be under consideration for
publication, elsewhere. At least one author of each accepted paper
should register for the conference and participate in the workshop.



PUBLICATION PLANS

Accepted papers shall be published in the ACM Digital Library through the
ACM International Conference Proceedings Series. Extended versions
of the highest quality submissions will be advocated for inclusion in a
special issue of a journal (TBD).
