The idea advocated by Model Driven Engineering (MDE) is to develop
systems starting from models, at different levels of abstraction, that
are capable of expressing domain-specific concepts in a way that is at
the same time precise, intuitive, and machine-processable, so allowing
automated manipulation and transformation. The potential benefits of
adopting a model-driven development approach are many: quicker
development and reduced costs, obtained through automation and extensive
reuse, increased overall quality, easier evolution. Because of these
(and other) factors, the popularity of MDE has steadily increased over
the years, reaching various engineering disciplines, beside software
development. The efforts of these years have resulted in the invention
of concepts, languages, and tools for the definition, analysis,
transformation, and extension of domain-specific modeling languages and
of general-purpose modeling language standards. Despite MDE has
progressed significantly, still it presents a number of open challenges
and unsolved problems concerning both conceptual and practical issues,
whose deeper investigation is necessary for model-driven approaches to
be employed to their full potential in everyday practice.
The main goal of this special session is to provide a discussion forum
where researchers and practitioners can meet and share their views on
MDE; this session will offer an ideal venue for exchanging ideas and
discussing problems, exploring together possible solutions and drafting
The focus of the session will be on the scientific and practical aspects
of model-driven engineering (models, processes, methods, and tools).
The topics of the session include (but are not limited to):
* Model transformation and re-engineering
* Model-based validation and verification
* Model-based assurance of extra-functional requirements
* Models in the system engineering process
* Model evolution and maintenance
* Models for search-based software engineering
* Quality assurance for models
* Integration of different models
* Tool support for model-based development
* Application domains: service-oriented and component-based systems
* Experiences of using model-driven approaches in practice.
