Call For Papers

First Workshop on Architecture Centric Virtual Integration at

ACM/IEEE 17th International Conference on
Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems


Important dates
* Paper Submission Deadline: July 11
* Paper Notification to Authors: August 1, 2014
* Dates: September 28 - 30, 2014 (to be confirmed)

New real-time systems have increasingly complex architectures because of the
intricacy of the multiple interdependent features they have to manage. They must
meet new requirements of reusability, interoperability, flexibility and
portability. These new dimensions favor the use of an architecture description
language that offers a global vision of the system, and which is particularly
suitable for handling real-time characteristics.
Due to the even more increased complexity of distributed, real-time and embedded
systems (DRE), the need for a model-driven approach is more obvious in this
domain than in monolithic RT systems. The purpose of this workshop is to provide
an opportunity to gather researchers and industrial practitioners to survey
existing efforts related to behavior modelling and model-based analysis of DRE

Cyber-Physical systems (CPS) combine many challenges to meet requirements for
reusability, interoperability, flexibility or dependability. The use of
architecture description language helps to integrate components before
implementing the system. Such integration approach eases system design analysis
and implementation, detects design errors and potential defects before
development efforts, avoiding re-engineering costs and making the system more
robust and safe.
This first edition of this workshop seeks contributions from researchers and
practitioners interested in architecture-centric methods and their use to design
and analyze systems. The conference topics of interest are:
* Modeling Notations: new languages, inter-operability between languages
* Architecture Centric Analysis Tools
* Virtual Integration Process and Tools
* Definition of extensions for the design of specific systems (e.g. avionics) or
support of a particular analysis (e.g. safety)
* Automatic Code Generation from Models
* Model Transformation
* Model Analysis Methods
* Support of Certification (e.g. DO178C) using Models
* Industrial experiences of use of Model-Based technologies

Paper submission
To contribute, please send a position paper or a technical paper via easychair

Submitted manuscripts should be in English. All papers must comply
with the Springer LNCS format. Full papers must not exceed
10 pages for full papers, and short papers must not exceed
6 pages.

Workshop Proceedings
Selected papers will be including in online proceedings
published by CEUR -
This will make sure your paper is accessible online.

Publication in ACM TECS
Best papers from the workshop will be selected to be published
in a Special Section of the ACM Transactions on Embedded
Computing Systems. Selected papers would then add more
materials and extend the publication on term of results.
Revised papers will have a firm page limit of 25 pages.
