Model Based Interoperability

Software and Systems Modeling
Theme Issue

There is increasing interest in software tool chains and distributed
systems that are based on modeling technology. Tool chains can be
constructed by combining general purpose tools with domain specific
tools. The challenge lies in identifying the ingredients needed to
create highly automated software supply chains and systems that minimize
the effort to integrate new suppliers of model based software artifacts.
Meeting this challenge requires a significant increase in the use of
formal (yet highly compact) specifications and advanced tooling for
creating, managing, and exploiting shared formal models.

In recent years there has been a great deal of work addressing point
solutions to model driven software engineering. In addition, techniques
such as model based transformation, ontologies, and meta-modeling have
matured to the point where they can be deployed on industrial-scale
applications. Application of these techniques to the development of
tool chains through model-based interoperability has not been addressed.

The aim of this theme issue is to provide a resource that describes
the state-of-the-art in model based interoperability and to outline
a roadmap that addresses the key challenges in this area.

The Journal of Software and Systems Modeling (SoSyM) invites original,
high-quality submissions for its theme issue on "Model-Based
Interoperability" to appear in Q2 2010, focusing on topics related to
MBI, including:

o Requirements for interoperability: challenges and road-map; tool
meta-models; architectures; requirements for modeling languages.

o Modularization of model-based artifacts: aspect-oriented models;
best practices and challenges regarding granularity of models,
model-based product lines, and versioning; distributed model supply
chains; change impact analysis in large model-based systems.

o Technologies: use of existing technologies for interoperability;
comparison of technologies; design of new technologies; analysis
of current standards; proposals for extensions to standards.

o Experience reports: project organization; methodologies and
guidelines for interoperability.

Making a Submission:

(1) Communicate your intent to submit a paper by emailing the theme
issue editors the following information before the Intent to Submit
deadline: Title, Authors, and an Abstract.

(2) Prepare your submission with either Word or LaTeX using Word and
LaTeX templates:

Possible submission formats are:

o Word (.doc, without macros)

(3) Submit your work using the online submission system manuscript

o In step 1, select "Special Section Paper" as the manuscript type
and select "Dr. Bernhard Rumpe" as the "Editor-in-Chief" (EIC).

o In step 4, add "Tony Clark" (+ or
"Jorn Bettin" (+ as an editor and choose
"Designate as Preferred Editor".

o In step 5, make sure field "Cover Letter" includes the line:
"Submission for Theme Issue on MBI".
