In Model-Driven Software Development (MDSD), the functionality of complex
systems lies beyond the representative capabilities of a single model.
Therefore, an increasing variety of heterogeneous models and languages with
possible overlaps, redundancies, and inconsistencies are used in the various
phases of software development. To cope with this complexity various approaches
have been developed to re-organize information during systems development.

Aspect-Oriented Modelling (AOM) restructures software along cross-cutting
concerns and integrates them in a weaving or composition process. View-based
modelling approaches address the problem with partial views that offer direct
editing and re-integration rather than weaving or composing. The Orthographic
Software Modeling (OSM) approach is a view-centric development process that
generates all representations of a system from a single underlying model.


The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners to
foster a fruitful cross-pollination of ideas between the aspect-oriented
community and the emerging view-based community. We encourage submissions on
new modelling concepts as well as technical papers describing implementation
approaches and formalisms.


The workshop is interested in submissions on all topics related to model-driven
development processes in particular from (but not limited to) the communities
of view-based, aspect-oriented and orthographic software modelling.
More specifically, this includes:

- advantages and disadvantages of modelling approaches and paradigms
- constraints and limitations for the applicability of modelling paradigms
- approaches for avoiding inconsistencies, overlap and redundancies
- bridging the gap between different modelling languages or MDSD views
- generating, defining and evolving different views
- composition of different models and modelling languages
- round-trip engineering and co-evolution of different modelling languages
- generating a single metamodel for multiple views or modelling languages
- (bidirectional) transformations of metamodels
- separating and re-integrating cross-cutting concerns or model weaving
- dynamic information hiding for partial views


Submissions to the workshop are possible in two categories: Research papers
presenting original work on five to eight pages and position papers discussing
innovative approaches on two to four pages. Accepted papers are planned to be
published in the ACM Digital Library.
