                       Call for Papers

      9th International Workshop on Graph Transformation 
         and Visual Modeling Techniques (GT-VMT 2010)


    Satellite Event of ETAPS 2010, Cyprus -- March 20-21, 2010

* Scope *
  GT-VMT 2010 is the ninth workshop of a series that serves as a forum
  for  all researchers  and  practitioners interested  in  the use  of
  graph-based notation,  techniques, and tools  for the specification,
  modeling,  validation,  manipulation  and  verification  of  complex
  systems.  The  aim  of   the  workshop  is  to  promote  engineering
  approaches  that provide  effective  sound tool  support for  visual
  modeling languages, enhancing formal reasoning at the semantic level
  (e.g.,   for  model   analysis,   transformation,  and   consistency
  management)  in different domains,  such as  UML, Petri  nets, Graph
  Transformation or Business Process/Workflow Models.

  This  year's workshop will  have a  special focus  on visualization,
  simulation, and verification of concurrent and distributed systems.

  Concurrency and  distribution are among  the most vital  concerns to
  nowadays computing  due to the importance  of interconnected systems
  and       the      increased      diffusion       of      multi-core
  architectures. Nevertheless, concurrent  and distributed systems are
  hard  to   specify,  design,  verify  and   implement.   Visual  and
  graph-based techniques may be  exploited to cope with the complexity
  in  engineering of  and reasoning  about concurrent  and distributed
  systems.  In   fact,  graph-based  approaches   have  recently  been
  successfully applied  to represent several  computational aspects of
  different classes of distributed systems ranging from mobile systems
  a-la  pi-calculus, to coordination  in service-oriented  systems, to
  communication  networks.  The  aim  of the  workshop  is to  promote
  graph-  and   visual-based  approaches  for   modelling,  designing,
  implementing   and  reasoning   about  concurrent   and  distributed
  systems.  The general  areas of  interest range  from non-functional
  aspects  (e.g.,  security,   quantitive  aspects),  to  (semi)formal
  modelling  frameworks,  to  visual  techniques for  distributed  and
  concurrent systems.

  Besides the traditional topics of the GT-VMT series like

    - visual language definition (incl. metamodelling, grammars, graphical 
parsing, etc.)
    - syntax and semantics of visual languages (incl. OCL, graph patterns, 
simulation, animation, compilation, verification & validation, static 
analysis techniques, etc.)
    - model transformations
    - graph transformations and visual modeling techniques in engineering, 
biology, and medicine
    - case studies and novel application areas
    - tool support and efficient algorithms

  more focused topics of interest include but are not limited to

    - visual and graph-based languages for distributed systems
    - graph models of distributed computations
    - verification and validation of distributed systems with visual 
    - graphical static & dynamic analysis of distributed systems
    - graphs for architectural design languages for distributed systems
    - visual techniques for modeling process choreographies and distributed 
    - visual/graph-based approaches to distributed coordination mechanisms
    - graph-based semantics models of novel distributed architectures (e.g., 
service oriented, GRID, P2P computing, and context aware/adaptive distributed 
    - model transformations of graphical into textual formalisms for 
distributed systems 
    - model transformations and their application in model-driven development 
of distributed and concurrent systems
    - relating models/visual tools for concurrency/distribution
    - ...
