Call for Papers:
6th International Workshop on the Globalization of Modeling Languages (GEMOC 2018)
co-located with MODELS 2018
October 15, 2018,
Copenhagen, Denmark

We are pleased to invite you to submit papers to the 6th International Workshop on the Globalization of Modeling Languages (GEMOC 2018), held in conjunction with the ACM/IEEE 21th International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems (MODELS) at Copenhagen, Denmark, on October 15, 2018.

Context and Motivation

Software intensive systems are becoming more complex, driven by the need to integrate across multiple concerns. Consequently, the development of such systems requires the integration of different concerns and skills. These concerns are usually covered by different languages, with specific concepts, technologies and abstraction levels. This multiplication of languages eases the development related to one specific concern but raises language and technology integration problems at the different stages of the software life cycle. In order to reason about the global system, it becomes necessary to explicitly describe the different kinds of relationships that exist between the different languages used in the development of a complex system. To support effective language integration, there is a pressing need to reify and classify these relationships, as well as the language interactions that the relationships enable.

The 2018 edition of the GEMOC workshop will follow the successful previous five editions: GEMOC at MODELS 2013 in Miami, USA, GEMOC at MODELS 2014 in Valencia, Spain, GEMOC at MODELS 2015 in Ottawa, Canada, GEMOC at MODELS 2016 in Saint-Malo, France, and GEMOC at MODELS 2017 in Austin, TX, USA. This edition will complete the state-of-the-art and practice initiated during the last years. It will also strengthen the community that broadens the current DSML research focus beyond the development of independent DSMLs to a research focus that provides support for globalized DSMLs.

GEMOC 2018 is supported by the GEMOC initiative and its associated Eclipse Research consortium, which promotes research seeking to develop the necessary breakthroughs in software languages to support global software engineering, i.e., breakthroughs that lead to effective technologies supporting different forms of language integration, including language collaboration, interoperability and composability.


The topics of interest for GEMOC 2018 include:

* Tools and methods for engineering modeling languages
* Composability and interoperability of heterogeneous modeling languages
* Language integration challenges, from requirement to design, for analysis and simulation, during runtime, etc.
* Model and metamodel composition
* Language interface, viewpoint
* Heterogeneous modeling and simulation
* Language-based socio-technical coordination
* Multi-language or multi-disciplinary environment

Submissions describing practical and industrial experience related to the use of heterogeneous modeling languages are also encouraged, particularly in the following application domains:

* Cyber-Physical Systems, System of Systems
* Internet of Services, Internet of Things
* Complex Adaptive Systems
* Smart City, Smart Building, Home automation
* Smart Grids, management of renewable and intermittent energy sources
* Industry 4.0 and the smart factory of the future


As contributions, we expect early research results about the aforementioned topics, descriptions of case studies on the coordinated use of multiple modeling languages, and/or descriptions of practical experience, opinions and related approaches.

Each contribution must be described in a short paper not exceeding 3 pages in the ACM sigconf format, or a full paper not exceeding 6 pages in the ACM sigconf format. Each paper should describe problems, case studies, or solutions related to the topics of interest. Each paper is expected to highlight the relationships between modeling languages, as well as their management.

Papers that describe use cases, or novel integration approaches can be accompanied by concrete artifacts, such as models (requirements, design, analysis, transformation, composition, etc.), stored in a public repository (e.g., ReMoDD). Artifacts should illustrate any experience on the conjoint use of different modeling languages.

Submitted articles must not have been previously published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere. The program chairs will apply the principles of the ACM Plagiarism Policy throughout the submission and review process. All contributions will be reviewed and selected by the program committee members.

Each contribution must be submitted electronically in PDF format via Easychair:

The accepted papers will be published by CEUR in the workshop proceedings. Also, participants will be strongly encouraged to participate in preparing the workshop report.

Important Dates
* Abstract submission deadline: July 10, 2018
* Paper submission deadline: July 17, 2018
* Notification of acceptance: August 17, 2018
* Workshop: October 15, 2018

Workshop Format

The format of the workshop reflects the goals of the workshop: constructive feedback on submitted papers and other artifacts on the conjoint use of different modeling languages, collaborations, and community building. The format of the workshop is that of a working meeting. Hence, there is less focus on presentations and more focus on producing and documenting a research content that identifies challenges, different forms of language integration, and relates existing solutions.

The workshop consists of a morning session in which a keynote and short presentations of the accepted papers will be given. A significant amount of time will be reserved for discussing each paper and their relations to each other. The afternoon session is devoted to a working session dedicated to open discussions of the presented contributions and other topics suggested by the participants. The closing session is dedicated to develop a plan to publish the results of the discussion in a final workshop report.
