Call For Papers

MORSE’16 - Third Workshop on Model-Driven Robot Software Engineering


MORSE'16 is co-located with the RoboCup 2016.

RoboCup Date: June 30 – July 4 2016
Workshop Date: July 1, 2016
Location: Messe Leipzig, Leipzig, Germany

Robots are an indispensable part of modern production facilities. In the future, robots will also become more common in daily life. Currently, however, there is a lack of standardization w.r.t. hardware/software platforms for robots, leading to a vast landscape of isolated, incompatible, task-specific and, thus, non reusable solutions.
Consequently, there is a need for new engineering methodologies for the design, implementation and execution of software for robotic platforms.
Model-Driven Robot Software Engineering (MORSE) is a promising research field combining Software Engineering and Robotics. Its objectives are to introduce model-driven development methodologies for the development of robot software. At the same time, formal methods should be transferred to robotics because "robot apps" must be certified and verified. MORSE attempts to fill this gap.
Submissions are encouraged, but not limited, in the following topics:

Robotic Platforms: MDA, Models, Processes and Tools
- Hardware/Software Abstractions | Architectures | Metamodels
- Code- and Application-Reuse | Managed Redundancy | Deployment
- Variability in Robotic Systems | Self-Adaptive Systems | Evolution
- Programming Languages | Paradigms | Models | DSLs

Models for and Modelling in Robotics
- Sensors and Actuators | Sensor Integration
- Computer Vision and Image Processing | Recognition and Tracking
- Knowledge Representation and Reasoning | Context Models
- Ontologies and Conceptual Modeling
- Localization, Mapping and Navigation
- Autonomous Robots | Robot Learning and Artificial Intelligence

Robot Ecosystems and Total Cost of Ownership
- Product-Line Development
- End-User Customization | Multi-Tenancy

Model-Driven Quality Assurance of Robotic Systems
- Verification | Validation | Testing | Simulation | Debugging | Profiling
- Handling Emergent Behavior and Uncertainty | Software Qualities

Multi-Robot Systems
- Cooperative Perception | Planning | Task Allocation | Coordination
- Robot Swarms | Multi-Agent Robotic Systems

Abstract Submission Deadline: April 4, 2016
Submission Deadline: April 11, 2016
Notification: May 2, 2016
Camera Ready: June 15, 2016
Workshop: July 1, 2016

Papers should be submitted electronically by April 11, 2016 in PDF format via EasyChair ( Submitted papers must conform to the ACM SIG Proceedings Style (alternate format).

Submissions to the workshop are possible in two categories:
- Regular Papers should describe original work on a problem or solution w.r.t. the described topics of interest on six to eight pages.
- Position Papers should present a well-defined position on how Model-Driven Tequniques can improve the software engineering of robotic systems on two to four pages.

The accepted papers will presumably be digitally published in the ACM Digital Library. Authors of accepted papers will be expected to attend the workshop.
