Call for Papers - MDPLE 2010

2nd International Workshop on
Model-Driven Product Line Engineering

collocated with ECMFA 2010 - the 6th European Conference on
Modelling Foundations and Applications, Paris, France, June 15-18



The fundamental premise of product line engineering (PLE) is that the investment in a family of products pays off later by allowing systematic, efficient derivation of products. This should be automated as much as possible, which can be achieved via model-driven engineering (MDE) techniques.

Research in PLE and MDE has many intersections. PLE leverages MDE to specify variability, domain concepts, configurations and more. (Semi-) automated product derivation requires mappings between the models on different abstraction layers and model transformations to derive an implementation from a configuration.

In addition, latest research shows the increasing need for concepts to deal with very large and evolving systems. Product lines can no longer rely on an immutable scope but need to be considered as evolving systems which can span over organizational boundaries. Thus, there is a need to apply and investigate latest concepts from MDE like model-driven evolution and co-evolution, consistency management, multi-paradigm modelling, etc.

In this workshop we aim to bring together researchers and practitioners to foster the exchange of concepts and ideas between them to address these challenges.



We are interested in the application of concepts from MDE to the area of product line engineering, including (but not limited to):

* Modelling of software product lines

* Variability modelling

* Automated and interactive product derivation

* Aspect-oriented approaches

* Multiple binding time and run-time variability

* Automatic inference of variability constraints

* Advanced approaches and process models

* Evolution and change

* Traceability and integrated handling of
multiple models and artefacts

* Product validation

* Scalability and complexity

We explicitly encourage submission of

* Case studies and experience reports

from industry where such techniques have been applied in industrial practice and on a larger scale.
