Theme and Topics of Interest
Collaborative modeling is gaining a growing interest in both academia and industry. However, several research challenges remain open,
including scalability, support for multi-user modeling environments, model versioning, migration, comparison, merging and conflict management.
Recently, scientific research contributions related to collaborative model-driven software engineering (MDSE) are emerging, each of them
focusing on different and specific aspects of collaboration and modelling. Still, many of these studies are scattered across multiple research
areas such as software engineering, model-driven engineering, model integrated computing, etc.

The goal of COMMitMDE 2017 is to bring together researchers and practitioners to explore (i) the impact of collaborative SE methods and
principles on MDE practices and (ii) how MDE methods and techniques can support collaborative software engineering activities.
Also, the workshop aims at assessing the state of the research and practice on Collaborative MDE, creating new synergies between tool vendors,
researchers, and practitioners, informing the community about the new means for collaborative MDE, and identifying needs and research gaps
in the collaborative MDE area.

We consider COMMitMDE topics to be foundational to the MODELS community, and orthogonal to most of the methods and techniques
developed by the MODELS community. As briefly reported above, COMMitMDE will look at model editing, model merging, conflict management,
repositories, multi-view, modeling and metamodeling from a collaborative perspective. A non-exhaustive list of topics includes:

* Collaborative MDE design
* Requirements engineering with collaborative MDE
* Metamodel-level collaboration
* Multi-view collaborative MDE
* The role of off-the-shelf VCS/forges in MDE
* Web-based model editing
* Collaborative MDE practices
* Academic and industral needs in collaborative MDE
* Case studies and experience reports
* Scalable repositories for collaborative modeling
* Multi-user modeling environments
* Synchronization mechanisms like model migration and merging
* Conflict management
* Model versioning and model comparison support

Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least three Program Committee members with joint discussion to reach agreement on an optimal selection.
The submission and review process will be managed using EasyChair (
Each paper must be submitted in PDF and be formatted according to the ACM Guidelines:
All accepted papers will be published in a CEUR volume.

We accept two types of submissions:
* Regular research papers (minimum 6 pages, maximum 10 pages)
* Tool demonstration papers (of maximum 4 pages).
