7th International Conference on the Quality of Information and
Communications Technology (QUATIC 2010)

Oporto, Portugal, 29 September 2010 - 02 October 2010

Thematic Track:
Quality in Model Driven Engineering

Call for Papers

Model-driven engineering (MDE) refers to a range of approaches that models
play an indispensable role in software development. Modeling promotes higher
level of abstraction, therefore reducing complexity of software development
and promoting communication among the several stakeholders in the
development process (e.g. product managers, designers, programmers). MDE
initiatives, like OMG’s Model-Driven Architecture (MDA), make claims of
increased quality and productivity by separating business and application
logic from underlying platform technology, transforming models to other
models and automating code generation (ranging from system skeletons to
complete, deployable products). However, while quality assurance is a
well-known topic in “traditional” Software Engineering, less is known on how
to assess quality across the MDE lifecycle (encompassing new activities such
as metamodel engineering or transformations specification), as well as on
the effective improvements obtained by applying MDE itself, face to not
using it at all. We seek novel contributions ranging from conceptual
frameworks to case studies on how to leverage ICT systems quality with MDE
techniques, as well as how to induce quality assurance in the MDE lifecycle
itself. Suggested topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

·         Quality models in the MDE context

·         Quality assurance in the MDE development flow

·         Evaluating the quality of models and metamodels

·         Models’ traceability throughout the lifecycle

·         Assessing quality in model transformations

·         Measuring the improvement achieved with an MDE approach, specially
regarding quality

·         Quality in the context of model-driven service oriented systems

·         Case studies and lessons learned in applying MDE in industry

·         Empirical studies on the quality of MDE processes

Paper Submission

Authors should submit to
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=quatic2010 a PDF version of their
paper. Papers must be in IEEE format and not exceed 6 pages, including
figures, references, and appendices. Submissions must be original and will
be reviewed by the Track Program Committee. Accepted papers will be
published in the electronic IEEE proceedings of QUATIC’10, subject to one of
the authors registering for the conference. The authors of the 3 best papers
of this thematic track will be invited to submit extended versions to the
main track of the conference. More info on QUATIC’2010 and its tracks can be
