Automotive software was born less than 40 years ago. Within just 40 years, the significance, size, and development costs of automotive software has grown to staggering levels. The automotive industry is increasingly relying on and becoming a driver of advances in software development and engineering methods, techniques and tools to deal with the many unique challenges the automotive industry faces. Significant advances have been made dealing with many of these challenges involving, for instance, variability modeling and software product lines, standardization, model-based development, cyber-physical systems, and systems engineering. However, the remaining challenges are compounded by future trends: according to an IBM report released in January 2015, the traditional industry boundaries are starting to disappear and automotive companies must adapt not only to the increasing role of cognitive and adaptive technologies and social media, but also to an increasingly open and collaborative ecosystem of traditional and non-traditional industrial participants (such as carsharing companies); 80% of the 175 industry executives questioned currently feel ill-prepared for these changes. A central objective of the workshop is to provide a forum for practitioners and researchers from industry and academia in which novel, innovative, model-based solutions to current and future challenges in automotive software development can be presented and discussed. Another important objective is the identification of new research problems arising from current trends.

We encourage submissions presenting novel and insightful descriptions of applications of modeling techniques to problems arising in the context of automotive software engineering. More precisely, topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

+ Architectures and component-based development and relevant technologies such as AUTOSAR, EAST-ADL, and UML,
+ Real-time systems and support for multi-core, mixed criticality and IP, and dynamic scheduling,
+ Quality assurance and support for different quality attributes such as functional and non-functional correctness, interoperability, fault-tolerance, maintainability, and reusability,
+ Safety and security and support for safety standards such as ISO 26262
+ Requirements and traceability
+ Variability and configuration management
+ Synthesis, transformation, iterative development, integration, and code generation
+ Development processes and support for globally distributed development
+ Emerging technologies such as big data, mobile apps, social media, open source software, and vehicle networks

Authors are invited to submit:

+ Technical papers providing novel contributions relevant to the workshop topics.
+ Experience papers describing the use of modeling in an automotive context
+ Position papers on future research challenges and open problems.

Both, short papers (not more than 6 pages,including references) and full papers (not more than 10 pages including references) are welcome. Contributions must be written in English and adhere to the IEEE formatting. All submissions will be reviewed by at least three PC members who are expert or have been experiencing in the related field for years. Accepted papers will be published as IEEE workshop proceedings, and indexed in DBLP and Scopus. Selected best papers will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue at the Journal of Automotive Software Engineering (JASE). Contributions must be submitted through the MASE'19 EasyChair submission page
