ICSE 2012 Workshop on Modeling in Software Engineering (MiSE 2012)
Zurich, Switzerland
June 2-3, 2012

Workshop Overview
The purpose of this 2-day workshop is to promote the use of models in the
engineering of software systems. In particular, we are interested in the
exchange of innovative technical ideas and experiences related to
modeling. Engineers have used models to effectively manage complexity for
centuries, and there is a growing body of work on the use of models to
manage inherent problem and solution complexity in software development.
The use of software models will become more prevalent as methodologies and
tools that manipulate models at various levels of abstraction become
available.

Workshop activities will focus on analyzing successful applications of
software modeling techniques to gain insights into challenging modeling
problems including (1) identifying, describing, and using appropriate
abstractions, (2) supporting incremental, iterative development through
the use of appropriate model composition, transformation and other model
manipulation operators, and (3) automated analysis of possibly large,
possibly incomplete models to determine the presence or absence of desired
and undesired properties.
A list of topics includes:
•	Modeling notations and tools
•	Modeling of non-functional properties
•	Metamodeling
•	Modeling patterns and strategies
•	Model transformations
•	Model evaluation
•	Model traceability and management
•	Domain specific modeling
•	Extracting models from implementation artifacts (e.g., for program
understanding or verification)
•	Use of models to support downstream activities (e.g., to generate test
cases)
•	Use of models at runtime (e.g., to support dynamic adaptation)
•	Empirical studies
•	Variability management using models
•	Model reuse
•	Innovative use of models

Important Dates
Paper submissions: February 17, 2012
Notification of authors: March 19, 2012
Camera-ready copies: March 29, 2012

Workshop format
The workshop will be highly interactive and focused on the sharing of
ideas and on progressing towards a shared vision of research goals.
Included in the program will be paper presentations, paper critiques by
designated attendees, at least one panel discussion, posters, and a
keynote talk.
Each paper presentations will be limited to 15 minutes, and will be
immediately followed by a critique presented by a designated attendee.

Submission guidelines
Although the workshop is open to all, prospective participants are invited
to submit a 4-7 page position or technical paper. Workshop papers must
follow the ICSE 2012 Format and Submission Guideline. All submissions will
be reviewed by members of the program committee and the organizing
committee for quality and relevance. Accepted papers will become part of
the workshop proceedings.

EasyChair will be used to manage the submission review process. Submit
papers here .
