Call For Papers

Call for Applications - MODELING OUTSIDE THE BOX (MOTB) WORKSHOP
(co-located with MODELS'13 in Miami, Florida, USA, September 30, 2013)

http://cserg0.site.uottawa.ca/modelingoutsidethebox2013

WHAT IS IT?
===========
Through a series of creativity, lateral thinking, and brainstorming
activities, the Modeling Outside the Box (MOTB) workshop will ask
participants to think outside the box and imagine different, radical,
innovative forms of model-driven engineering (MDE). Participants will be
asked to leave behind all their preconceived notions of MDE and to approach
the issue of MDE from a different angle. This will be a highly interactive
workshop in which facilitators will use tried-and-tested methods for
fostering creativity to generate fresh new ideas for MDE. The aim is to
avoid the blinkered thinking and tunnel vision that is a natural
consequence of any mature discipline. The outcomes will be new connections
between people and, hopefully, new ideas that may lead to future research
collaborations.

SOUNDS FUN. BUT IS IT FOR ME?
=============================
We are looking for people who are willing to step outside their particular
areas of expertise or interest and join with other positive-thinking
individuals to imagine alternative futures for MDE. If you have been
frustrated with the current state of MDE practice and want to change
things, then we want you!

SOUNDS LIKE ME. WHERE DO I SIGN UP?
===================================
We are asking all potential participants to fill in a short 2 page
application form
http://cserg0.site.uottawa.ca/motb13/MOTB13application.doc
and submit it in pdf format via EasyChair
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=motb2013.
The application form is just meant to ensure a diverse mix of people with a
range of experiences are represented as creativity works best when there is
diversity. In particular, we are aiming for a mix of senior people and
junior people, including students. We encourage both academics and
practitioners to join us. We will try our best to accept all applications.

SOUNDS INTERESTING. BUT WILL IT REALLY CHANGE ANYTHING?
=======================================================
We cannot promise that the world will change if you come to this workshop.
We can promise that you will meet like-minded individuals, that you will
get a chance to have proper conversations with them rather than just
listening to presentations, and that your way of thinking will be
challenged.

WHO IS BEHIND THIS?
===================
Your friendly organizers are
Jon Whittle, Nelly Bencomo, and Gunter Mussbacher.
Feel free to contact them at
modelingoutsidethebox2013-info@site.uottawa.ca
if you have any questions or just want more information.

PUBLICATION AND COMMITMENT
==========================
There will be no presentations or papers in workshop proceedings.
Furthermore, while MODELS’13 allows participants to move between workshops,
this is not conducive to creative thinking. We therefore ask applicants to
commit to spending the whole day with MOTB.
