8th International Workshop on Graph Transformation
and Visual Modeling Techniques (GT-VMT 2009)

Satellite Event of ETAPS 2009, York, UK, March 28 - 29, 2009



GT-VMT 2009 is the eighth workshop of a series that serves as a forum for all
researchers and practitioners interested in the use of graph-based notation,
techniques and tools for the specification, modeling, validation, manipulation
and verification of complex systems. The aim of the workshop is to promote
engineering approaches that provide effective sound tool support for visual
modeling languages, enhancing formal reasoning at the semantic level (e.g.,
for model analysis, transformation, and consistency management) in different
domains, such as UML, Petri nets, Graph Transformation or Business
Process/Workflow Models.

This year's workshop will have a special focus on visualisation, simulation,
and verification of domain-specific languages (DSLs) to improve the automation
and quality in model-driven and/or service-oriented processes.

Suggested areas of interest include but are not limited to following topics:

* formal definition of visual DSLs (incl. meta-modeling, grammars, graphical parsing, etc.);
* static semantics of visual DSLs (incl. OCL, graph patterns, etc.);
* dynamic semantics of visual DSLs (incl. simulation, compilation, etc.);
* model transformations (within and) between DSLs and their application in model-driven
* visual DSL analysis (incl. verification & validation, static & dynamic analysis
* model/graph-based approaches to novel architectural paradigms like service-oriented,
GRID, and P2P computing, context-aware and adaptive applications, etc.;
* application of graph transformations and visual modeling techniques in engineering,
biology, and medicine;
* case studies and novel application areas;
* tool support and efficient algorithms.
