OCL and Textual Modelling

MODELS'2010 Workshop

Oslo, Norway



  Modelling started out with UML and its precursors as a graphical
  notation. However, graphical notations were found to have
  limitations in terms of specifying detailed aspects of a system
  design and in terms of processing and managing models. Limitations
  in using graphical languages include: specifying detailed behaviour;
  linking models to other traditional languages; making models
  executable; model transformation; extensions to modelling languages;
  model management. Many of these limitations have been addressed in
  recent years by proposals for textual modelling languages that
  either integrate with or replace graphical notations for
  modelling. Typical examples of such languages are OCL, textual MOF,
  Epsilon, Alloy etc. The motivation for this workshop is to bring
  together researchers and practitioners in textual modelling to
  report advances in the field, to share results, to identify common
  areas and potential for integration, and to identify common tools
  for developing textual modelling languages, with a view to
  advancing the state-of-the art. In particular the workshop will
  provide a forum for existing textual modelling standards such as
  OCL to be debated and the intention is that the workshop will engage
  with the appropriate standards bodies to disseminate practitioner
  requirements and to report research results.


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- New and/or succesful applications of textual modelling languages
- Mappings between textual modelling languages and other
- New algorithms, evaluation strategies and optimizations for textual
modelling languages for
  * validation, verification, and testing,
  * model transformation and code generation,
  * metamodeling/DSLs,
  * query and constraint specifications
- Alternative graphical/textual notations for textual modelling languages
- Evolution, transformation and simplification of textual modelling
- Libraries, templates and patterns for textual modelling languages
- Complexity results for textual modelling languages
- Quality models and benchmarks for comparing and evaluating
textual modelling tools and algorithms
- Case studies on industrial applications of textual modelling languages
- Experience reports:
  * usage of textual modelling languages and tools in complex domains,
  * usability of textual modelling languages and  tools for end-users
- Empirical studies about the benefits and drawbacks of textual modelling
- Innovative textual modelling tools


The workshop will be organized as a part of MODELS 2010 Conference in
Oslo, Norway. It continues the series of OCL workshops held at
previous UML/MODELS conferences: York (2000), Toronto (2001), San
Francisco (2003), Lisbon (2004), Montego Bay (2005), Genova (2006),
Nashville (2007), Toulouse (2008) and Denver (2009).  Similar to its
predecessors, the workshop addresses both people from academia and
industry. The aim is to provide  a forum for
addressing integration of OCL and other textual modelling languages,
as well tools for textual modelling,
and for disseminating good practice and discussing the
new requirements for textual modelling.

Workshop Format

The workshop will include short (about 15 min) presentations, parallel
sessions of working groups, and sum-up discussions.


Short papers (up to 5 pages) and full papers (up to 15 pages) can be
submitted to the workshop. All papers must follow LNCS style
guidelines and be uploaded to the Submission system (EasyChair):

The program committee will review the submissions (minimum 2 reviews
per paper) and select papers according to their relevance and interest
for discussions that will take place at the workshop. Accepted papers
will be published at http://www.metamodel.com and
http://www-st.inf.tu-dresden.de/ocl/ (the OCL Portal).

As in previous editions, it is planned that polished versions of
accepted papers will be published in cooperation with an international
publisher, e.g., the Electronic Communications of the EASST,

Important Dates

Submissions of papers:       July 30, 2010
Notification of acceptance:  August 23, 2010
Camera-Ready paper versions: September 15, 2010
