                            MODELS 2014

              ACM/IEEE 17th International Conference

          on Model-Driven Engineering Language & Systems

                      Call for Contributions

         Sept. 28th - Oct. 3rd, 2014 – Valencia, Spain



MODELS in its 17th edition cordially invites contributions related to all aspects of model-based engineering!

MODELS is the premier conference series for model-based software and systems engineering which since 1998 has been covering all aspects of modeling, from languages and methods to tools and applications. MODELS 2014 challenges the modeling community to promote the magic of modeling by solidifying and extending the foundations and successful applications of modeling in areas such as business information and embedded systems, but also by exploring the use of modeling for new and emerging systems, paradigms, and challenges including cyber-physical systems, cloud computing, services, social media, security, and open source. We invite you to join us at this conference and to help shape the modelling methods and technologies of the future!


Foundations Track Papers


We invite authors to submit original papers in the following categories: 

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.

3. Empirical evaluation papers assessing existing problem cases or scientifically validating proposed solutions through, e.g., empirical studies, experiments, case studies, or simulations. Authors are encouraged to make the artifacts used for the evaluation publically accessible by, e.g., uploading them to the Repository for Model-Driven Development (ReMoDD).

4. Modeling Pearls are polished, elegant, instructive, and insightful applications of modeling techniques or approaches. Modeling pearls include demonstration case studies, examples of bad modeling practices that exemplify the problems that can occur if they are not detected and rectified, and models used in the classroom to illustrate modeling concepts and practices.


MDE Practice Track Papers


We invite authors to submit original experience reports and case studies: Each paper should provide clear take-away value by describing the context of a problem of practical, industrial importance and application. The paper should discuss why the solution of the problem is innovative, effective, or efficient and what likely industrial impact it has or will have; it should provide a concise explanation of the approach, techniques, and methodologies employed, and explain the best practices that emerged, tools developed, and/or software processes involved.
