In conjunction with MODELS Conference,
October 3-8, 2010
Oslo, Norway

Scope of the Workshop:
Computational modeling has become the norm in industry to remain 
competitive and be successful. As such, Model-Based Design of embedded 
software has enterprise-wise implications and modeling is not limited to 
isolated uses by a single engineer or team. Instead, it has reached a 
proliferation much akin to large software design, with requirements for 
infrastructure support such as version control, configuration 
management, and automated processing.

The comprehensive use of models in design has created a set of 
challenges beyond that of supporting one isolated design task. In 
particular, the need to combine, couple, and integrate models at 
different levels of abstraction and in different formalisms is posing a 
set of specific problems that the field of Computer Automated 
Multiparadigm Modeling (CAMPaM) is aiming to address.

The essential element of multiparadigm modeling is the use of explicit 
and heterogeneous models throughout. This leads to a framework with 
omnipresent models. Some represent the syntax of formalisms used for 
modeling, others are used to model the transformations that represent 
the operational semantics, as well as model-to-model transformations for 
inter-formalism transformation. Moreover, others are used to model the 
composition of models or even to model the composition of modeling 
formalisms. These models are then used to facilitate generative tasks in 
a language engineering space, such as evolving a domain specific 
modeling formalism as its requirements change, but also in a tool 
engineering space, such as automatic generation of integrated 
development environments. The use of ubiquitous explicit models during 
the whole system design process, from modeling formalism definition to 
system implementation, allows multiple types of analyses at various 
levels with great benefits in terms of performance, cost-effectiveness, 
safety, etc.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers and 
practitioners in the area of Multi-Paradigm Modeling in order to 
identify possible points of synergy, common problems and solutions, tool 
building aspects and visions for the future of the area.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:
- Applications (of current MPM techniques and tools and test/validate it);
- Language Engineering (and modeling Language Engineering);
- Usability (and modeling Usability) of MPM tools and models;
- Model Transformation (and modeling Transformations);
- Language Composition;
- (Meta)Model Evolution;
- Multi-View Modeling;
- Model Exchange, Debugging, Testing and Consistency;
- Visualization of Multi-Paradigm Models;
- MPM Education;
- Multi-Abstraction.
