2nd Workshop on

Comparison and Versioning of Software Models (CVSM'09)

A one-day ACM/IEEE ICSE Workshop
Sun May 17, 2009, Vancouver, Canada


Submission deadline: January 17, 2009
Author notification: February 6, 2009
Camera ready copy: February 19, 2009


Modern software development approaches, especially those which follow a
model-driven way of development, make heavy use of models during the
whole development process. In this context models are being evolved,
simplified and/or extended over a longer period of time, which leads to
the need of keeping different versions, of comparing them, of measuring
their (un)similarity, and of merging different models into one.

The aim of this workshop is the establishment of the state of the art in
the area of comparing and versioning of models. The most relevant
research questions shall be identified, an overview on applications
shall be collected, and the research community in this area shall be
brought together.


The main topics of this workshop are the comparison of models, the
computation of similarities and differences, and merging of several
models into one. This includes

* differences between models (foundations, algorithms, heuristics,
complexity, quality, metrics)
* union and intersection of models
* merging of models (conflicts, conflict resolution)
* versioning concepts for models, especially UML models
* versioning of meta models
* meta models for versioning
* (partial) mapping of model elements
* representation of models and model differences in repositories
* formal approaches to variants
* visualization of model differences (presentation, layout, interaction)
* applications of model differences in Software Engineering
(e.g. product lines, version management)
* industrial use caes
* differences between general models and textual artifacts
* tool support, tool architectures
* model repositories
* benchmarking


We are soliciting research papers, experience reports and tool
demonstration descriptions that concisely describe ongoing work,
new ideas, and experiences. There will also be a possibility for
tool demonstrations at the workshop.

Prospective participants of the workshop are expected to submit an
extended abstract of 4-6 pages as a position paper. Accepted proposals
will be published in advance on the workshop web-site. All submitted
papers will be reviewed by at least three program committee members.
Papers must not have been previously published or be concurrently
submitted elsewhere.

For submission instructions, check the workshop web site:

The accepted papers will also be published in the IEEE Digital
Libraries. The attendees will receive a memory stick containing
the proceedings.
