Flexible MDE Workshop - FlexMDE 2019
co-located with IEEE / ACM 22nd International Conference on Model
Driven Engineering Languages and Systems (MODELS)
September, 2019 - Munich (Germany)

http://events.disim.univaq.it/flexmde/

Overview
---
Increasingly, models are becoming commonplace and Model Driven
Engineering (MDE) is gaining acceptance in many domains including
automotive, aerospace, railways, and telecommunications.

Over the last years, several modelling platforms have been developed
to simplify and automate many steps of MDE processes. However, several
challenges still need to be addressed in order to enable a wider
adoption of MDE technologies. One of the most important impediments in
adopting MDE tools is related to the reduced flexibility of existing
modelling platforms.

Topics
---
There is an increasing need for more disciplined techniques and
engineering tools to support flexibility in several forms in a wide
range of modelling activities, including metamodel, model, and model
transformation definition processes. The workshop aims at:
- identifying the challenges in the current practice of MDE related to
the lack of flexibility, and
- soliciting contributions of ideas, concepts, and techniques that
address these challenges.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Techniques for flexible meta-modelling and flexible typing:
- Flexible metamodelling techniques: less static, more flexible
- Model typing, dynamic typing techniques in MDE
- Metamodelling by example, bottom-up metamodelling
- Support for generic programming techniques in MDE
- Multilevel modelling
- Typing inconsistency management
- Partial typing, multiple typings, a-posteriori typing
- Constructive (top-down) and exploratory (bottom-up) modes for model typing
- Metamodelling paradigms: e.g. multilevel, two-level, archetype-based

Techniques for flexible modelling:
- Model sketching
- Model abstraction
- Modelling using mobile devices or natural language

Flexible reuse of MDE artefacts
- Reuse techniques for transformations and code generators
- Reuse techniques for models and metamodels
- Definition of reusable (meta-)model patterns and transformation patterns
- Componentization techniques for MDE artefacts

Techniques for increasing the agility of the MDE process:
- Experience reports regarding lack of flexibility in using modelling and MDE
- Agility and MDE, agile modelling
- Techniques for reducing the gap between modelling and programming

Submission guidelines
---
Two kinds of papers are solicited: regular papers (max 10 pages), and
short papers (max 5 pages), adhering to the IEEE formatting.

Contributions should present novel - albeit preliminary - research
ideas, challenging problems, and practical contributions to the
domain. Industrial feedback is welcome: experience or case studies
about applying MDE in an industrial setting showing the lack of
flexibility, or ways to overcome it, are solicited as well.

All papers must be written in English. Accepted papers will be
published as IEEE workshop proceedings, and indexed in DBLP and
Scopus. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an
extended version to a special issue at the Journal of Object
Technology.

Contributions must be submitted through the FlexMDE'19 EasyChair
submission page by following the link:
