First International Workshop on
The Globalization of Domain Specific Languages (GlobalDSL 2013)

Montpellier, France, July 2, 2013

Co-located with ECMFA, ECOOP and ECSA 2013

Important Dates:
- Submission deadline: March 22, 2013
- Notification of acceptance: May 17, 2013
- Camera Ready version: June 10, 2013
- Symposium: July 2, 2013

- Prof. Dr. Bernhard Rumpe will give the keynote at GlobalDSL 2013! Title and abstract to be announced on the workshop website.
- All accepted papers will be published in a post-conference edition of the proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.

About The Workshop and Topics:

Modern software-intensive systems serve diverse stakeholder groups and thus must address a variety of stakeholder concerns. These concern spaces are often associated with specialized description languages and technologies that are based on concern-specific problem and solution concepts. Software developers are thus faced with the challenging task of integrating the different languages and associated technologies used to produce software artifacts in the different concern spaces.

GlobalDSL 2013 is a full-day workshop that will bring together researchers and practitioners in the programming and modeling languages communities to discuss the challenges associated with integrating multiple, heterogeneous software languages. The languages of interest range from requirements to runtime languages, and include domain-specific modeling and programming languages. Challenges related to engineering composable languages, semantic composition of languages and to reasoning about systems described using heterogeneous languages are of particular interest.

GlobalDSL 2013 is supported by the initiative GEMOC (http://gemoc.org) that promotes research and development work exploring the necessary breakthrough in software languages to support global software engineering, i.e., collaboration, interoperability and composability in software languages.

Topics of interest include:
- Composability, interoperability of (domain-specific) languages,
- Modularity, reuse, and variability of (domain-specific) languages,
- Heterogeneous simulation, combination of Validation & Verification techniques.

Paper describing practical and industrial experiences related to the use of heterogeneous software languages are also encouraged, particularly in the following application domains:
- Cyber-Physical Systems, System of Systems,
- Smart City, Smart Building, Home automation,
- Complex Adaptive Systems,
- Internet of Services, and Internet of Things.

Workshop Organization:

The workshop will consist of a keynote, paper presentations (long and short papers), and a panel discussion. We expect the short paper presentations to be ongoing research where interested workshop participants may get involved in the research activities.

Types of Contributions:

- Full Papers, not exceeding 6 pages in the ACM format contribute research papers and experience reports in line with the topics of GlobalDSL 2013. They present contributions in the field of programming or modeling language composition.
- Short Papers, not exceeding 4 pages in the ACM format, present position statements addressing the workshop topics. These papers intend to stimulate discussions during the workshop.

The paper selection process will be based on the novelty of the ideas or solutions, the impact on language composition, and relevance to the topics for the workshop. All papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. In order to facilitate a comprehensive and open minded online decision on paper acceptance, all papers and reviews are accessible to all PC members (exempt those reporting a conflict of interest).

Submission and Publication:

All papers have to be submitted electronically in pdf format via Easychair: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=globaldsl2013

All papers of the workshop GlobalDSL 2013 have to follow the ACM format. Details about the required format can be found at: http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates. At least one author for each accepted paper should register for the workshop at the conference and present the paper.

All accepted papers will be published in a post-conference edition of the ACM Digital Library.
