Call For Papers


Joint workshop of the 3rd International Workshop on Model-driven
Approaches in Software Product Line Engineering and 3rd Workshop
on Scalable Modeling Techniques for Software Product Lines

Co-located with the 15th International Software Product Line Conference
(SPLC 2011), 22 - 26 August 2011

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES ------------------------------------------------

Many of the benefits expected from software product lines (SPL) are based
on the assumption that the additional investment required for domain
engineering, pays off during application engineering when products are
derived from the product line. However, to fully exploit this we need to
optimize application engineering processes and handle the reusable
artefacts of an SPL in a systematic and efficient manner.

In this context, the joint MAPLE/SCALE workshop will focus on two closely
related aspects: We will explore how model-driven approaches can help to
achieve systematic and efficient derivation of products and we will
address scalability challenges that arise from the application of product
line techniques to product lines of realistic size and complexity. The
workshop particularly aims at bringing together researchers and
practitioners to discuss practical problems and potential solutions
regarding model-driven approaches and/or scalability challenges.

TOPICS -------------------------------------------------------------------

We particularly encourage research papers based on industrial experience
and empirical studies. We are interested in all topics related to
model-driven techniques and/or scalability in product line engineering.

This includes, but is not limited to:

-Modelling of software product lines
--Variability modelling
--Configuration vs. construction of products (e.g. with DSLs)
--Scalability of product line models
-Product derivation/configuration
--Automated and interactive techniques
--Scalability of derivation/configuration
-Assembly/generation of SPL artefacts
-Handling large and complex SPLs
--Managing complexity, scalability and inconsistencies
-Visualisation and interactive techniques for large and complex PL models
--To support modelling of SPLs
--To support product derivation
-Feature-oriented approaches for modelling and implementation
--Feature dependencies and feature interaction
-Evolution and Change
--Model/Meta-model (co-)evolution
--Model maintenance (merging, conflict resolution)
-Variability-aware and scalable techniques for validation and verification
-Integration of heterogeneous modelling languages and techniques
-Runtime-variability, dynamic SPLs, variability in adaptive systems
-Collaborative and distributed scenarios, software ecosystems

We particularly encourage papers which
-report on industrial experience and case studies and/or
-identify and structure open challenges and research questions

LOCATION -----------------------------------------------------------------

The workshop will be held in Munich, co-located with the SPLC conference
from 22 - 26 August 2011.

SUBMISSIONS --------------------------------------------------------------

We are seeking for research papers and experience reports (4-8 pages) in
ACM SIG Alternative Proceedings Style (A4) .

Submissions will be selected based on the relevance to the workshop topics
(submissions must address model-driven approaches and/or scalability in PLE)
and the suitability to trigger discussions. Papers should be submitted via
EasyChair at

IMPORTANT DATES ----------------------------------------------------------

- Deadline for submissions: 14 May 2011
- Notification of acceptance: 8 June 2011
- Final papers due: 27 June 2011
