History and Mission


Graphs are well-known, well-understood, and frequently used means 

to depict networks of related items. Various types of graph 

transformation approaches have been proposed to specify, recognize, 

inspect, modify, and display certain classes of graph based models 

representing structures of rather different domains. Research activities 

based on Graph Transformation (GT) build a well-established scientific 

discipline within computer science. 


AGTIVE 2011 is the fourth symposium for researchers and industrial 

practitioners that are interested in the application of precisely defined 

and well-understood graph-based transformation techniques.



AGTIVE 2011 expects submissions on model transformation approaches 

and tools operating over any kind of graph-like structure

(including models, object-relational structures, RDF, XML, etc.)



It combines a traditional conference program with open space workshop 

elements that give its participants the freedom to organize their own 

panels, discussion groups, start joint software development activities,

and build bridges between between academia and industry.


Two invited talks will be given by Zsolt Kocsis (IBM Hungary) 

and Mark Proctor (JBoss Drools).



Important Dates


* May  30, 2011: *** EXTENDED Abstract submission deadline ***

* June 6, 2011 (23:59 Apia - Samoa time): *** EXTENDED Paper submission
deadline (strict) ***

* July 18, 2011: Notification of acceptance / rejection

* Oct. 14, 2011: Final version (after the symposium) 


Categories of Papers


Different classes of contributions are sought including research papers, 

application report papers, tool demonstration papers, or challenge papers.


A) Research Papers


We are looking for submissions presenting the application of graph 

transformation techniques in a broad sense in the following 

(non-exclusive) areas:


* Domain-specific languages & tools

* Syntax & semantics of modeling/programming languages

* Meta CASE tools & code generators

* Verification & validation for model transformations 

* Simulation and animation in science & engineering

* Graph layout algorithms & visualization tools

* Pattern matching & recognition algorithms

* Integrated engineering languages & tools

* Model-driven engineering of software systems

* Evolution of software, systems, services

* Service-oriented applications & Semantic Web and ontologies

* Self-adaptive systems & ubiquitous computing

* Graph-based approaches in novel application areas 

  (healthcare, logistics, biology, multimedia, etc.)


Submitted research papers may address topics concerning either the

or the application of GT-based models, languages, methods, and tools. 


In addition to traditional research papers, academic and commercial tool

demonstrations and application reports are especially encouraged. These 

demonstrations should present GT-based tools or applications that have been 

developed using GT technologies.


B) Application report papers 


They are not necessarily expected to provide a scientific contribution 

to forward the state-of-the-art of the GT research community, but


* We expect critical assessment of the merits of GT techniques in a studied 

  application domain compared to standard techniques used in this area;

* The submission is a "best practice" description that shows in a

  way how GT can be used to overcome problems in a studied domain;

* The paper uses a case study to highlight existing deficiencies of GTs thus

  giving input for future research activities.


C) Tool demonstration papers 


They may report on novel features of well-established tools, in addition 

to presenting completely unpublished tools. 


D) Industrial challenge papers


They may present an unsolved problem specific to a studied application

that evolved from an industrial collaboration.


Submission Guidelines



The proceedings containing all contributions including summaries of open 

workspace discussions is planned to be published as a Springer Press LNCS 

volume after the symposium (like in case of previous AGTIVE editions).

Authors may choose between three different submission formats (page limits 

refer Springer Press LNCS format and are hard limits including all kinds

of appendices):


A) full research paper: 14 pages

B) application report paper: 10 pages

C) tool demonstration paper: 6 pages

D) industrial challenge paper: 6 pages

Venue and Travel



AGTIVE 2011 will be hosted by Budapest, the capital of Hungary, 

which was founded in 1873 as the unification of the separate historic 

towns of Buda (the royal capital since the 15th century), Pest 

(the cultural centre) and Óbuda (built on the ancient Roman settlement 

of Aquincum). 


Budapest is located in the northern centre of Hungary and is easily 

accessible by all kind of transportation. The city is served by two 

international airports for regular and low-cost airliners. It has very 

good connections to neighboring countries via car, bus, and train.
