                      MODELS 2011 TUTORIALS
                     CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS

                            ACM/IEEE 14th
    International Conference on Model Driven Engineering
                       Languages and Systems
                        October 16-21, 2011
                     Wellington, New Zealand

Deadline for Tutorial Proposals: April 18, 2011 (according to time zone


The MODELS series of conferences is the premier venue for the exchange
of innovative technical ideas and experiences relating to model-driven
approaches in the development of software-based systems. Topics
covered by the conference include domain-specific modeling languages,
model-driven development and engineering, model transformations (in
all its forms including both M2M and M2C), aspect-oriented modeling,
verification and validation and real-time.

Following the tradition of previous conferences, MODELS 2011 will host
a number of tutorials, during the three days before the main
conference. The tutorials will provide intensive courses on anything
from thoughts on the past, current, or future development of our
modeling domain to presentations and/or demonstrations of new tools
and technologies.

The tutorial should target an audience of practitioners industrial
researchers, and developers familiar with and already working with
techniques like, e.g., MDE. They have a strong interest in
Model-Driven Development, how to improve and evolve the languages
supporting modeling, including UML, how to develop sophisticated tool
support, and how to deliver complex systems through modeling. They
want to learn how modeling has been applied effectively in specialized
domains, and they have keen interest in how to make modeling
successful in real-world applications.. In other words, the talks
should be relevant for the participant at the MODELS conference, but
it is not not required the same level of technical originality that we
expect from a paper in the main conference.

A slot in the Tutorial track will normally be of 1.5 or 3 hours
(quarter-day or half-day). Proposals for tutorials may also suggest a
series of such tutorial lectures, but each lecture should be
reasonably self-contained.

Following last year’s MODELS conference of Tutorial tracks, this year
the tutorials will be open for those who have registered for satellite
events (workshops, symposia, etc).

The following themes are examples of what is considered relevant for

 * Modeling techniques for specific domains.

 * Presentation of new tools or new versions of old tools (e.g.
Modeling workbenches, Model Transformation languages, Model
Verification tools,...).

 * Dissemination of project results from industry-related projects.

 * Applying modeling technologies in non-traditional domains.

 * Modeling for re-engineering and legacy evolution.

 * Methodology and model-oriented processes.

 * Practical experiences of general interest.

 * Book presentations.

Tutorial Proposal Guidelines
Your proposal document must be structured as follows:

       * Tutorial title
       * Abstract (max. 200 words)
       * Keywords
       * Presenters
         (name, e-mail address, affiliation, address, and a brief biography)
       * Proposed length of the lecture (1.5 or 3 hours)
       * Target audience
       * Description of the tutorial (max. 4 pages) should include:
             o Context
               (any past events related to your tutorial including
related conferences, previous tutorials, and previous experience of
the current organizers)
             o Need
               (comments in favor of your application; if your
tutorial was at MODELS'10 or any of the former conferences, why is it
useful to run it again?)
             o Objectives
             o Relevance
               (in particular to the MODELS community)
       * How many participants do you expect?
         (please make at least an educated guess)
       * What kind of equipment do you need
         (e.g., data projector, computer, whiteboard)?
       * Reference material
         (in case it exists)

Please ensure that you adhere to the above tutorial proposal
guidelines providing all requested information using at most five
pages. Submit your tutorial proposal electronically in PDF using the
Springer LNCS style to tutorials at modelsconference.org.
