MDPLE 2011 - Call for Papers
3rd International Workshop on
Model-Driven Product Line Engineering

held in conjunction with ECMFA 2011
Birmingham, UK, 6-9 June 2011


EXTENDED Deadline: 14th April 2011

1. Workshop Summary and Goals

The fundamental premise of product line engineering (PLE)
is that the investment in a family of products pays off
later by allowing systematic, efficient derivation of
products. This should be automated as much as possible,
which can be achieved via model-driven engineering (MDE)
techniques. Research in PLE and MDE has many intersections.
PLE leverages MDE to specify variability, domain concepts,
configurations and more. (Semi-) automated product
derivation requires mappings between the models on
different abstraction layers and model transformations to
derive an implementation from a configuration.

In addition, latest research shows the increasing need for
concepts to deal with very large and evolving systems.
Product lines can no longer rely on an immutable scope but
need to be considered as evolving systems which can span
over organizational boundaries. Thus, there is a need to
investigate latest concepts from MDE like model-driven
evolution and co-evolution, consistency management,
multi-paradigm modelling, etc.

In this workshop we aim to bring together researchers and
practitioners to foster the exchange of concepts and ideas
between them to address these challenges.


2. Workshop Topics

We are interested in the application of concepts from MDE
to Product Line Engineering, including (but not limited

* Modelling of software product lines

* Variability modelling

* Evolution of product lines

* Complexity handling and scalability

* Automated and interactive tool-support

* Feature-oriented / Aspect-oriented approaches

* Multiple binding time and run-time variability

* Advanced approaches and process models (e.g.. multiple product lines and

* Integrated handling of multiple models

* Variability-aware validation approaches

We explicitly encourage submission of case studies and
experience reports from industry where such techniques have
been applied in industrial practice and on a larger scale.


3. Important Dates

Paper submission: 4th April 2011

Notification of acceptance: 4th May 2011

Camera-ready version: TBA

Workshop: 7th June 2011


4. Submissions

We are seeking for two types of submissions:

* Regular papers (max. 12 pages) presenting original research
and/or experience reports and

* Short papers (max. 6 pages) describing ongoing research, new
results, and future trends.

All papers submitted to the workshop must be unpublished
original work and must not have been submitted anywhere
else for publication.

Submissions will be selected based on the relevance to the
workshop topics and the suitability to trigger discussions.

Submissions should be submitted as PDF in Springer LNCS style via

Accepted papers will be published as CEUR proceedings.
