*ECMFA 2013*
July 1-5, 2013
Model-Based Engineering (MBE) is an approach to the design, analysis and
development of software and systems that relies on exploiting high-level
models and computer-based automation to achieve significant boosts in both
productivity and quality.
The ECMFA conference series (formerly known as the ECMDA-FA conference
series) is dedicated to advancing the state of knowledge and fostering the
industrial application of MBE and related approaches. Its focus is on
engaging the key figures of research and industry in a dialog which will
result in stronger and more effective practical application of MBE, hence
producing more reliable software based on state-of-the-art research results.

ECMFA 2013 will be co-located with ECOOP and ECSA.  The joint organisation
of these prominent conferences provides a unique opportunity to gather
practitioners and researchers interested in these fields, and allow them to
interact with each other.

*Invited Speakers*
· Martin Gogolla, University of Bremen, Germany
· Dierk Steinbach, Cassidian, EADS Deutschland GmbH, Germany

ECMFA has two distinct Paper Tracks: one for research papers (Track F)
dealing with the foundations for MBE, and one for industrial/applications
papers (Track A) dealing with the applications of MBE, including experience
reports on MBE tools.
In addition to the technical paper tracks, the conference will include
Workshops, Tutorials, Tool demonstrations and Poster exhibitions. The
deadline for submitting proposals for workshops and tutorials is January
10th, the one for tutorial proposals is April 5th. The details can be found
in a separate call for workshops and call for tutorials. The deadline for
submitting to the tool demonstration and poster sessions is April 15th. The
details can be found in the call for tools and posters.  All these calls
can be downloaded from the ECMFA 2013 webpages.

*Research papers on foundations of MBE (academic track F)*
In this track, we are soliciting papers presenting original research on all
aspects of MBE. Typical topics of interest include, among others:
· Foundations of Metamodelling
· Domain Specific Modelling Languages
· Reasoning about Models
· Model Transformation, Code Generation and Reverse Engineering
· Model Execution and Simulation
· Model (Co-)Evolution, Consistency and Synchronization
· Modelling for Testing and Validation
· Model-Based Engineering Environments and Tool Chains
· Foundations of Requirements Modelling, Architecture Modelling, Platform
· Foundations of Quality Aspects and Modelling non-functional System

Research papers should be between 12 and 16 pages long, in A4 size
compliant with the LNCS paper style (see
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). Failure to conform to these
guidelines may result in disqualification of the paper. In particular,
papers longer than 16 pages may be automatically rejected without review.
Papers submitted to the foundations track will be evaluated on novelty and
theoretical contribution.

* Industrial papers on applications of MBE (industrial track A)*
In this track, we are soliciting papers representing views, innovations and
experiences of industrial players in applying or supporting MBE. In
particular, we are looking for papers that set requirements on the
foundations, methods, and tools for MBE. We are also seeking experience
reports or case studies on the application, successes or current
shortcomings of MBE. Quantitative results reflecting industrial experience
are particularly appreciated. All application areas of MBE are welcomed
including but not limited to any of the following:
· Applications of MBE related to health care, smart mobility or other
challenging domains
· Comparative Studies of MBE Methods and Tools
· Metrics for MBE Development
· Reference Architectures and Interoperability
· MBE Environments and Tool Chains
· MBE Technology Adoption, Development and Roll-Out Processes
· MBE Training
· MBE for Systems Engineering
· MBE for Safety-Critical Systems
· MBE and Component-Based Software Engineering
· MBE and Business Process Modelling
· Software Process Modelling

Industrial papers should be between 6 and 12 pages long, in A4 size
compliant with the LNCS paper style (see
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). Failure to conform to these
guidelines may result in disqualification of the paper. In particular,
papers longer than 12 pages may be automatically rejected without review.
Industrial papers will be evaluated on practical feasibility, maturity, and
industrial relevance.

*Submission and selection*
Manuscripts for both tracks must be submitted as PDF files through the
EasyChair online submission system:
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ecmfa2013.  Please ensure that
you submit to the right track!

All contributions will be subject to a rigorous selection process by the
Program Committee. No simultaneous submission to other publication outlets
(either a conference or a journal) is allowed; any concurrent submission
will result in the immediate rejection of the paper.

As in previous years, the proceedings of the conference with the accepted
papers of both Tracks will be published in a dedicated Springer LNCS
volume. If accepted, the paper must be personally presented at the ECMFA
2013 Conference by one of the authors.
A selection of the best papers of the conference will be invited to submit
extended versions to a special issue of an ISI indexed journal.

*Best paper awards*
The European Association for Programming Languages and Systems (EAPLS) will
give the Best Paper Award to the best contribution of the ECMFA 2013
Foundations Track. The best paper of the Applications Track will receive
the ECMFA Best Industrial Paper Award. These papers will be selected among
the accepted contributions, and the awards will be given during the event.

* Important dates*
· Abstract submission deadline: February 1, 2013
· Papers submission deadline: February 7, 2013
· Notification to authors: April 6, 2013
