                              MODELS 2013
                ACM/IEEE 16th International Conference
            on Model-Driven Engineering Language & Systems

                        Call for Contributions

           Sept. 29th - Oct. 4th, 2013 - Miami, Florida/USA

               Deadline: March 4th 2013 / March 14th 2013


MODELS 2013 cordially invites contributions related to all aspects
of model-based engineering!

MODELS 2013 will continue the tradition of the MODELS conference
series in providing the top forum for researchers and practitioners
to meet and share experiences in software and systems modeling.
The Foundations and Applications Tracks, Workshops, Tutorials, and
Panels will represent key venues for disseminating novel ideas in
modeling research. For the 2013 conference, Demonstrations and
Poster sessions will be formalized, along with the first year of the
ACM Student Research Competition at MODELS!

Now in MODELS' 16th year, the MODELS research community is challenged
to demonstrate the maturity and effectiveness of model-based
engineering in established application domains like business
information or embedded  systems, as well as explore its limits, by
investigating new application areas and combinations with various
other emerging technologies, such as cyber-physical systems, semantic
web, and cloud computing. To provide a broad forum for reporting on
scientific progress, as well as experiences and issues stemming from
practical application of model-based methods, MODELS invites
researchers to submit papers to the Foundations Track and the
Application Track.

Foundations Track Papers

1. Technical papers describing original scientifically rigorous
    solutions to significant model-based  development problems.

2. Exploratory  papers  describing  new,  non-conventional model-
    based development  research positions or approaches.

Application Track Papers

1. Application papers providing a realistic and verifiable picture
    of the current state-of-the-practice in model-based engineering
    and explore the problems encountered by the industrial adoption
    of model-based techniques.

2. Empirical evaluation papers evaluating  existing  problem cases
    or scientifically validating proposed solutions through, for
    example, empirical studies, experiments,  case  studies,  or

In 2013, MODELS will take place in the midst of  Miami's most popular
beach  area.  As the  5th  largest urban city in the USA,  Miami is a
hub for culture,  entertainment,  arts, and fashion (e.g., the famous
"South Beach" area).  Miami has recently been  named one of the USA's
cleanest cities and most  walkable cities.  With over 14 universities
and  colleges  in the  area,  Miami also is  a recognized  center for
education and research. We invite you to join us at this international
conference and to help shape the modelling methods and technologies of
the future!
