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 
. 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*
*New paper submission deadline: February 24, 2012 *
Author notifications: 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 <http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mise2012>
