Call For Papers

Second International Workshop on
Models and Model-driven Methods for Service Engineering (3M4SE

in conjunction with the
Fifteenth IEEE International EDOC Conference (EDOC 2011)
"The Enterprise Computing Conference",

August 29 - September 2, 2011, Helsinki, Finland


Recent developments in meta-modelling and model transformation
techniques have led to increasing adoption of model-driven engineering
practices. The increase in interest and significance of the model-
driven approach has also accelerated its application in the development
of large (distributed) IT systems to support (collaborative)
enterprises. Shifting attention from source code to models allows
enterprises to focus on their core concerns, such as business
processes, services and collaborations, without being forced to
simultaneously consider the underlying technologies. Different concerns
are typically addressed by different models, with transformations
between the models and ultimately to the source code. Although the
model-driven approach offers theoretical benefits for the development,
maintenance and evolution of enterprise computing systems and
corresponding service-oriented solutions, a number of issues for the
practical application of the approach still exist. In order to solve
these issues further advances in models (business goals, pragmatic
interoperability, semantic interoperability) and model-driven methods
(design concepts, languages, meta-models, profiles, specification
frameworks) are necessary.

This workshop aims at helping the convergence of research on model-
driven development and practical application of the model-driven
approach in the area of enterprise computing and service engineering.
The workshop addresses questions with respect to the requirements on,
concepts for, properties of and experience with models and model-driven
methods for service engineering in the area of enterprise computing. A
special focus will be on the combined application of model-driven and
semantic approaches in the different phases of the service lifecycle.


* Model-driven service-oriented design process, milestones and design
guidelines for service engineering (business goals, pragmatic
interoperability, semantic interoperability);
* Modelling techniques for Service-Oriented Architectures (design
concepts, languages, meta-models, profiles and specification
* Full lifecycle requirements management for service systems;
* Modelling of non-functional and Quality-of-Service characteristics;
* Modelling, analysis and execution of service compositions;
* Model-driven design patterns;
* Platform-independent modelling techniques;
* Mappings and transformation patterns from platform-independent models
to specific technology platforms (Web Services, J2EE, .NET, etc.).
* Limitations of metamodel-based techniques for service engineering,
and alternative techniques;
* Model-driven service description, publication and discovery;
* Platform models and generic platform types;
* Use of viewpoints, relations and correspondences between viewpoints
for model-driven service-oriented design;
* Implications of (middleware) platform characteristics for the model-
driven design process;
* Empirical studies and experience reports on models and model-driven


The workshop welcomes submissions of full papers (8 to 10 pages long)
and position papers (around 4 pages) in the IEEE Computer Society
format. Full research papers should describe original results that have
not been accepted or submitted for publication elsewhere. These papers
will be evaluated for scientific or technical contribution,
originality, appropriateness and significance.

Position papers should describe new insights gained, should define new
problems or research directions and/or pose challenges for researchers.
These papers will be evaluated based on their appropriateness,
significance, clarity and on their potential to trigger interesting
discussions on the day of the workshop.
All submissions must comply with the IEEE Computer Society conference
proceedings format guidelines (please use the latest template as there
have been updates recently). Submissions must be in English.

Submissions should be submitted in PDF format using the EasyChair
system (see
All papers will be refereed by at least 3 members of the International
Program Committee.

Accepted papers will be published pre-conference, in the EDOC short-
papers and workshops’ proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society Press
and will be accessible through IEEE Xplore and the IEEE Computer
Society Digital Library. The IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper
from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore)
if the paper is not presented at the workshop.
