Call For Papers

Responsiveness to ever-evolving requirements, market needs, customer feedback, and technology are only a few of the challenges posed by modern software systems and impacting Software Architecture (SA) and its evolution. Such challenges require ad-hoc methodologies, technologies, and tools to mitigate complexity, deal with architectural erosion, and survive the technological evolution. Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) is a methodology for developing complex software systems, which uses the principle of abstraction and separation of concerns for tackling the complexity of modern software systems. Models are not considered as mere documentation, but as well-defined artefacts (specified through modelling languages) that can be understood, automatically manipulated by automated processes, or transformed into other artefacts. In this context, the interplay between MDE and SA seems natural and of great benefit. Specific modelling languages can be used for representing SAs (e.g., AADL, ArchiMate) while model transformations can be used for several different tasks including, e.g., traceability, consistency checking, code generation, simulation, etc.
MDE4SA 2020 aims at promoting and fostering discussion on novel ideas and techniques, possibly controversial approaches on the interplay of MDE and SA. The workshop aims at providing a forum for researchers and practitioners from academia and industry in which novel and innovative solutions to current and future challenges of the interplay of MDE and SA can be presented and discussed.

Topics of interest
The workshop is a forum where researcher and practitioners can share current problems and innovative solutions including, but not limited to:
- Model-driven techniques and methodologies for designing SA
- Architectural description of SA design, considering logical and physical aspects through MDE
– Model-driven approaches for defining and measuring Quality-of-Service (QoS) in SAs
– Analysis of architectural designs and architectural patterns
– Approaches for migrating legacy architecture towards microservice architectures, serverless by means of MDE techniques
– Industrial practices and tools supporting the adoption of MDE into SA
– Methodologies adopted in industrial contexts
– Model repositories for SA
– Code generation from SA models and transformation approaches
– Change Propagation in SA views and consistency management
– Evolution of SA through modeling
– Empirical studies on SA and MDE areas
