7th International Workshop on
Model-Based Architecting and Construction of Embedded Systems

in conjunction with MoDELS 2014, Valencia, Spain



The design of embedded systems with real-time and other critical constraints raises distinctive problems throughout the development process, from high-level system engineering to low-level system designs. On the high-level engineering side, model-based system engineering is becoming the norm in industry. The formalization of system engineering models and approaches is considered to be a major fact for further gains in productivity, quality and time-to-market such complex systems. However, system and architecture modeling are rather an art than a systematic activity; therefore methodologies and design patterns must be proposed.

On the low-level design side, specific architectural choices have to be made as early as possible and non-functional constraints such as real-time deadlines must be handled. Model-based engineering techniques provide means to capture this architectural and non-functional information using domain-specific models and allow separating functional aspects (platform independent) from architectural and non-functional aspects (platform specific). These aspects are combined later via model transformations, but managing the feature interactions among the functional and non-functional aspects remains a key issue.

This full-day workshop is an opportunity to share and discuss advances and current research on model-based techniques that contribute to a better architecting and construction of embedded and cyber-physical systems with a focus on approaches yielding efficient and provably correct designs.


We are seeking contributions at all levels of the construction of embedded systems, from high-level modeling languages and semantics to concrete application experiments, from model analysis techniques to model-based implementations and deployments. You are kindly invited to submit papers in the following non-exclusive list of topics:
- Model-based system engineering: semantics of system models, refinement of system designs into hardware/software implementations, integration and interaction of system and software design models, validation of systems.
- Architecture description: position of ADLs in a model-based engineering approach, techniques for deriving architecture models from requirements and high-level designs from architecture models, verification and validation using architecture models.
- Capturing and exploitation of non-functional aspects: interactions among functional and non-functional aspects of the design, including but not limited to performance, quality of service, hard real-time constraints, power and resource management, security, etc.
- Domain specific design and implementation languages: computation and composition models (LUSTRE/SCADE, SIGNAL/POLYCHRONY, TTA, GIOTTO, HRT-UML, ADA RAVENSCAR, etc.), component languages (BIP, FRACTAL, PTOLEMY, etc.).
- Model-based analysis, verification and validation techniques of the above-mentioned models.


We expect papers of two kinds: short position paper (max. 6 pages) or full technical contribution (max. 10 pages) in the PDF format of Springer LNCS ( Papers must be submitted online via EasyChair:

All accepted papers will be electronically published as CEUR workshop proceedings, which is indexed by DBLP and Google Scholar.
