Models play an important role in software development. They not only support communication and understanding, but are increasingly used in automating software development tasks such as code generation, model-based testing, simulation and analysis. While many languages are created for software developers others may be created for business analysts, interaction specialists, test engineers, or persons responsible for product configuration and deployment. Often these languages are domain-specific, created for a narrow application area or for use only inside one company.

This workshop looks at principles of modeling language development, particularly graphical modeling languages for domain-specific needs. We seek contributions that are backed up by experiences on developing modeling languages. We do not focus on tools, but recognize the need for metamodel-based tools, which significantly ease the production of modeling environments. These tools also enable experimentation with the language as it is built, and remove the burden of tool creation and maintenance from the language creator.

The workshop welcomes submissions that address the development of graphical modeling languages. We are looking for submissions that cover all the phases of language development, including definition, testing, evaluation, and maintenance of modeling languages. We also welcome papers that discuss challenges and new trends. Some of the issues that we would like to see addressed in this workshop are experience-based findings on:

- Approaches to identify language concepts
- Tradeoffs between different language structures
- Processes for language definition
- Language structures that minimize the modeling need (and modeling time)
- Keeping models compact, consistent, reusable
- Testing modeling languages
- Creating notations for models, error annotation, different usage situations etc.
- Ways to integrate modeling languages
- Demonstration of modeling languages (and their related tooling, generators etc).


Initial submission 16 April
Notification 14 May
Final 3 June


Papers should be submitted by April 16, 2012. Contributions should be submitted electronically via EasyChair. Submitted papers must conform to the LNCS style. The maximum length of a submission is 12 pages.
