1st International Workshop on Non-functional System Properties in
Domain Specific Modeling Languages (NFPinDSML2008)

Affiliated with MoDELS 2008, Toulouse France, September 28- October 3, 2008,


The NFPinDSML 2008 workshop brings together researchers and practitioners from communities
dedicated to non-functional properties of software systems and researches from language
engineering to study the principles of integration of various non-functional system
properties and language engineering in order to further expand principles of reasoning about
non-functional properties of software systems in Domain Specific Modeling Languages, and
model-driven engineering in general


For the engineering of systems of a particular domain, Domain Specific Modeling Languages
(DSML) - domain-oriented modeling languages developed for solving specific classes of problems
related to such a domain - are becoming a common-place in software and system engineering.
While DSML are mostly dedicated to functional requirements, often they do not address
non-functional system properties (e.g. availability, reliability, security, performance,
timeliness, efficiency?). Non-functional system properties are recognized as at least as
important as functional properties and have to be addressed during the design of systems.
Non-functional properties of interest vary from domain to domain. Furthermore, there is
different understanding of what are non-functional, and functional properties from domain to
domain (e.g. timing and reliability properties are considered functional in the domain of
embedded systems, and that is not the case in information systems). Finally, because of
different relations, intrinsic-when one non-functional attribute affects another, or
extrinsic-when a value of a non-functional property is behaving in opposing way to value of
another, analysis of non-functional properties can be single and multi-dimensional.


The central question this workshop is the study of common principles of Domain Specific
Language Engineering, and analysis of non-functional properties. The typical NFPinDSML 2008
paper studies Domain Specific Modeling Language concepts, non-functional system properties
and annotation, computation and evaluation of non-functional properties of the final software
product as a characteristic of a language.

The topics of interest are, but are not restricted to:

- Model annotations and computation of non-functional properties in domain specific
modeling languages
- Platform models, platform non-functional properties and domain specific modeling languages
- Non-functional properties and traceability in domain specific modeling languages
- Aspect-oriented modeling and non-functional properties in domain specific modeling languages
* Estimation and evaluation of non-functional properties in domain specific modeling
languages with aspects
* Domain-specific aspects for estimation, evaluation and measurement
- Assessment of non-functional properties in domain specific modeling languages
* Estimation of non functional properties in domain specific modeling languages with
simulation and mathematical formalisms
* Measurement and empirical evaluation of non-functional properties in domain specific
- Transformation and non-functional properties
* Transformation as non-functional properties influencing design choice
* Non-functional properties of transformations
- Ontologies for formalizing shared knowledge about non-functional system properties
- Legal policies of non-functional properties:
* Legal policies and non-functional system properties
* Integration of legal policies in domain specific languages
- Non-functional properties and domain specific languages of particular domains (Service
Oriented Architectures, Event Based Architectures, Embedded Systems, Health-care Systems,
GUI?s, Insurance, ?)

Papers Submission

We solicit position papers (4 to 8 pages) and full technical papers (up to 15 pages) formatted
by using the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) style
( Short papers will be expected to discuss
controversial issues in the field or describe interesting or thought-provoking ideas that are
not yet fully developed. Full papers will be expected to describe new research results and have
a higher degree of technical rigor than short papers. All papers must not have been previously
published or submitted elsewhere. All papers should be submitted via the NFPinDSML 2008 EasyChair
online submission system ( All papers
will be published in the workshop proceedings (published by CEUR online proceedings system: Improved versions of the best
NFPinDSML 2008 papers, (subject to a second round of rigorous review) will be published in the
Software and Systems Modeling ( journal.
