Most software development projects apply modelling in some stages of development and to various degrees in order to take advantage of the many and varied benefits of it. Modelling is, for example, applied for facilitating communication by hiding technical details, analysing a system from different perspectives, specifying its structure and behaviour in an understandable way, or even for enabling simulations and generating test cases in a mode-driven engineering approach. Thus, the evaluation of modelling techniques, languages and tools is needed in order to assess their advantages and disadvantages, to ensure their applicability to different contexts, their ease of use, and other issues such as skills and costs; either isolated or in comparison with other methods.
This workshop aims to bring together professionals and researchers interested in software modelling to discuss in which way software modelling techniques may be evaluated, share experiences of performing such evaluations and discuss ideas for further research in this area. The workshop accepts both experience reports of applying software modelling in industry and research papers that describe more rigorous empirical studies performed in industry or academia.
* Build a better understanding of the industrial use of modelling techniques, languages and tools.
* Start building theories about the effectiveness of modelling approaches.
* Identify directions for future research in the field.
* Facilitate and encourage joint research and experimentation in software modelling.
Intended audience: 
       professionals and researchers interested in software modelling.
* Dr. Michel R. V. Chaudron is Associate Professor at the Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science in The 
* Dr. Marcela Genero is Associate Professor at the University of Castilla-La Mancha in Spain.  
* Dr.Silvia Abrahão is Associate Professor at the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia in Spain. 
* Dr. Parastoo Mohagheghi is Research Scientist at SINTEF ICT-Norway and Adjunct Associate Professor at the 
  Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

Workshop format: 
The workshop will be a 1-day program consisting of half a day with short papers (20 minutes per paper), and half a day discussion on synthesis of existing results and directions for future/joint research. The workshop will try to attract a keynote by a recognised researcher in the field of Software Modelling/Empirical Software Engineering.

Planned deadlines
Workshop paper abstract submission 20 July 2011  
Workshop paper submission  28 July 2011 
Author notification    20 August 2011 
Camera-ready papers    To Be Determined  (we plan to distribute the papers electronically before the workshop)
Workshop date    16 xor 17 xor 18 October 2011

The review process will be performed using EasyChair. Each paper will be reviewed by 3 PC members. Papers should use the LNCS format and should not be longer than 10 pages.
Submissions are handles via EasyChair:
If you have problems with submitting via Easychair, please mail one of the organisers.
