2nd International Workshop on Experiences and Empirical Studies in 
Software Modelling (EESSMod 2012) - A MODELS 2012 Workshop
Innsbruck, Austria, October 2, 2012.

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 
* Identify directions for future research in the field.
* Facilitate and encourage joint research and experimentation in 
software modelling.

Workshop format:

The workshop will be a 1-day event consisting of half a day with short 
paper presentations (20 minutes per paper), and half a day of 
discussions on synthesis of existing results and directions for 
future/joint research. The workshop will include a keynote by a 
recognised researcher in the field of Software Modelling/Empirical 
Software Engineering.

Important Dates:

26  July 2012 	Submission deadline
3 September 2012 	Notification to authors
17 September 2012	Camera ready papers
2 October 2012 	Workshop date
Submission Procedure:

The review process will be performed using EasyChair
( https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eessmod2012). Each paper 
will be reviewed by 3 program commitee members. Papers should be 
prepared using  the ACM SIGS format (double column) and should not be 
longer than 6 pages.
ACM SIGS Templates: 


Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library in the 
form of post-proceedings (as part of the MoDELS Workshop proceedings). 
Papers will also be published electronically and distributed to all 
participants prior to the workshop.
Authors of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended and 
improved version of their papers for a special issue/section in a 
Journal indexed  in the Journal of Citation Reports (under
