Call For Papers

ACM/IEEE 17th International Conference
on Model-Driven Engineering Language & Systems

Call for Contributions

Sept. 28th - Oct. 3rd, 2014 – Valencia, Spain

MODELS in its 17th edition cordially invite contributions related to all aspects of model-based engineering!

MODELS is the premier conference series for model-based software and systems engineering which since 1998 has been covering all aspects of modeling, from languages and methods to tools and applications. MODELS 2014 challenges the modeling community to promote the magic of modeling by solidifying and extending the foundations and successful applications of modeling in areas such as business information and embedded systems, but also by exploring the use of modeling for new and emerging systems, paradigms, and challenges including cyber-physical systems, cloud computing, services, social media, security, and open source. We invite you to join us in Valencia and to help shape the modelling methods and technologies of the future!

Foundations Track Papers
We invite authors to submit original papers in the following categories:

1. Technical papers describing original scientifically rigorous solutions to significant model-based development problems.

2. Exploratory papers describing new, non-conventional model-based development research positions or approaches.

3. Empirical evaluation papers assessing existing problem cases or scientifically validating proposed solutions through, e.g., controlled experiments, case studies, or simulations. Authors are encouraged to make the artifacts used for the evaluation publically accessible by, e.g., uploading them to the Repository for Model-Driven Development (ReMoDD).

4. Modeling Pearls papers describing polished, elegant, instructive, and insightful applications of modeling techniques or approaches. Modeling pearls include demonstration case studies, examples of bad modeling practices that exemplify the problems that can occur if they are not detected and rectified, and models used in the classroom to illustrate modeling concepts and practices.

MDE Practice Track Papers

We invite authors to submit original experience reports and case studies. Each paper should provide clear take-away value by describing the context of a problem of practical, industrial importance and application. The paper should discuss why the solution of the problem is innovative, effective, or efficient and what likely industrial impact it has or will have; it should provide a concise explanation of the approach, techniques, and methodologies employed, and explain the best practices that emerged, tools developed, and/or software processes involved.

MODELS 2014 will take place in the vibrant city of Valencia in Spain. Valencia is Spain's third largest metropolitan area with facilities to accommodate visitors attracted to the city from countries all over the world each year. Valencia offers a rich cultural heritage of music, art, gastronomy, architecture and folklore. Attendees visiting the city can enjoy an historic Mediterranean city that is a fascinating mixture of different cultures and religions that still remains alive in the numerous city's monuments and typical streets, combined with the most absolute modernity exemplified by the modern "Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias". With 14 technology institutes, a broad network of infrastructures and industries, and an academic system formed by 7 universities and their business parks, Valencia also is a recognized center for education and research. MODELS 2014 will be organized in the Ciudad Politécnica de la Innovación, which is a scientific park within the Universitat Politècnica de València campus.
