2nd CALL

Sixth European Conference on Modelling Foundations and Applications  
(ECMFA 2010)
(Formerly the ECMDA-FA series of conferences)

June 15-18 2010

University of Pierre & Marie Curie (UPMC), Paris, France


Co-organizers :
CEA LIST (Laboratory of technology research for software-intensive  
UPMC-LIP6 (Laboratoire d'Informatique de Paris 6)

Model-Based Engineering (MBE) is an approach to the design and  
development of software and systems that relies on exploiting high- 
level models and computer-based automation to achieve significant  
boosts in both productivity and quality. The ECMFA (European  
Conference on Modelling Foundations and Applications) conference  
series (formerly known as the ECMDA-FA conference series) is dedicated  
to advancing the state of knowledge and fostering the industrial  
application of MBE and related approaches. Its focus is on engaging  
the key figures of research and industry in a dialogue which will  
result in stronger and more effective practical application of MBE,  
producing thereby more reliable software based on state-of-the-art  
research results.

In addition to the technical paper, the conference will include  
workshops, tutorials, tool demonstrations, and poster exhibitions on  
these topics.
Below are the calls for these various events.

ECMFA has two distinct paper tracks: one for research papers (Track F)  
dealing with the foundations for MBE, and one for industrial/ 
applications papers (Track A) dealing with the applications of MBE,  
including experience reports on MBE tools.

Submission procedure is described at http://www.ecmfa-2010.org/index.php/paper-submission
Accepted papers (tracks F and A) are planned to be published in a  
dedicated Springer LNCS volume.

Important dates
Abstract submission:   January 22, 2010
Full paper submission : January 29, 2010
Acceptance notification:   March 12, 2010
Final paper due:   April 2, 2010

Program Chairs
Thomas Kühne, Victoria University of Wellington (Foundations Track)
Bran Selic, Malina (Applications Track)

Keynote Speakers
Colin Atkinson, Universität Mannheim, Germany
Diarmuid Corcoran, Ericsson, Sweden

Researchers and practitioners interested in organising a satellite  
workshop in the context of ECMFA 2010 are invited to submit proposals  
on topics related to the conference.
The purpose of the workshops is to provide participants with a forum  
for presenting novel ideas, and to discuss them in an open and  
interactive atmosphere. Responsibility for the format and organisation  
of each workshop rests with the submitters of the workshop proposal.
The ECMFA conference organisers will provide rooms, audio-visual  
equipment, and other logistical support. They will also offer the  
possibility of publishing the workshop proceedings in the CTIT  
Proceedings Series, with assigned ISBN/ISSN. The workshop proposals  
will be selected by the workshop chair, according to the advice of the  
ECMFA steering committee.

Workshop Applications
Workshop proposals should include:
- The name and the duration (half a day, one day, or two days) of the  
proposed workshop
- A statement of the workshop goals
- A short scientific summary of the topic, including a discussion on  
the relationship with the ECMFA topics
- A description of past versions of the workshop (if any), including,  
where possible, dates, organisers, submission and acceptance counts,  
and attendance
- Procedures for selecting participants and papers, and expected  
number of participants
- Expected background of the participants
- Plans for dissemination (for example, published proceedings or  
special issues of journals)

Workshop Submission
Electronic submissions (in PDF) should be sent to the workshops chair:
Arnaud Cuccuru (arnaud.cuccuru at cea.fr).

Workshop Proposals:  January 14, 2010
Workshop Notifications:  January 21, 2010

The ECMDA-FA 2010 conference is interested in tutorials that address  
state-of-the-art modeling ideas. Examples of topic areas for tutorial  
proposals are contained in the following non-exhaustive list:
- applying MDE in software development
- tools to support modeling and MDE
- advances in the practical use of MDE techniques
- modeling engineering and process management
- modeling for re-engineering and legacy evolution

Tutorial Applications
Tutorial proposals should include:
- Title
- Abstract (200 words)
- Keywords
- Presenters (name, e-mail address, affiliation, address, and a brief  
- Tutorial objectives
- Target audience

Tutorial Submission
Electronic submissions (in PDF or plain text) should not exceed five  
pages. They should be sent to the tutorial chair:
Xavier Blanc (Xavier.Blanc at lip6.fr).

Tutorial Proposals:  January 14, 2010
Tutorial Notifications:  January 21, 2010

Tutorial Review Process
The proposals received will be reviewed by the Selection Committee to  
ensure a high quality and appropriate mix for the conference. The goal  
of the Selection Committee is to provide a diverse set of tutorials  
that attract a large interest among the broad segments within the  
diverse ECMDA-FA community. Members of the Selection Committee are as  
- Andrey Sadovykh, Softeam, France
- Ragnhild Van Der Straeten, Vrije Universiteit, Belgium
- Tom Ritter, Fraunhofer FOKUS, Germany
- Xavier Blanc, University Pierre et Marie Curie, France (chair)

Tutorial presenters will receive an honorarium depending on the number  
of attendees. The precise amount of the honorarium will be determined  
immediately after the early registration deadline.
Tutorials that have less than 8 early registrants will face the risk  
of cancellation

ECMFA has traditionally had a very strong tools and consultancy track  
since this is often the meeting place between academic and industrial  
people interested in the practice of MBE. In this track, we are  
soliciting demonstrations of academic, open source, and commercial  
tools for applying MBE. MBE Consultants are also welcome to  
participate in this track and should prepare a portfolio of their  
recent MBE consulting engagements. Commercial tool vendors and  
consultants will be required to take up a level of sponsorship in  
order to participate in the Tools track.
The tool and consultancy track consists of:
- A tools and services presentation track, running in parallel to the  
main sessions of the conference.
- An exhibition area where tool providers and consultants can  
demonstrate their tools and services to the conference attendees.
- A poster area where open source and academic tools can present their  
tools to the conference attendees.
Each exhibitor will have the possibility to get a slot in the tools  
and services presentation track, which can be used to discuss and  
demonstrate their proposals. Academic and open source tool providers  
with posters will also be scheduled in the tools and services track.  
All presentations from this track will be published in the CTIT  
Proceedings Series and as a technical report available on the web site  
as PDF download.

Tools and Consultancy Applications
Tools and Consultancy proposals should include:
- Your affiliation
- A comprehensive (two to four pages) description of the tool(s) or/ 
and service(s) to be presented, with emphasis on the aspects that make  
the tool(s) or/and service(s) relevant in the context of MBE
- The maturation level of your tool, including whether your tool is  
academic, open source, or commercial.
- Whether you want to participate in the tools presentation track, or  
only to the exhibition

Tools and Consultancy Submission
Electronic submissions (in PDF) should be sent to the Tools and  
Consultancy  chair :
Sébastien Gérard (sebastien.gerard at cea.fr).
