****** CALL FOR PAPERS ******

MDWE 2013
9th International Workshop on Model-Driven and Agile Engineering for the
Workshop at ICWE 2013

Aalborg, Denmark
July 8th, 2013

****** OVERVIEW ******

Web Engineering is a specific domain in which systematic development is
needed and therefore approaches such as model-driven and agile development
can be successfully applied. Existing model-based Web engineering
approaches already provide excellent methods and tools for the design and
development of most kinds of Web applications.
They address different concerns using separate models (content,
navigation, presentation, workflows, etc.) and come with model compilers
that produce most of the applications Web pages and logic based on these
models. In practice, however, most of these Web Engineering proposals do
not fully exploit all the potential benefits of Model-driven Engineering
(MDE), such as complete platform independence, metamodeling, and model
The MDE paradigm offers advantages such as technology independent models
and (partially) automatic generation of applications, but also well-known
problems such as maintenance of the models. Thus, there are defenders of
MDE and also defenders of alternative paradigms such as agile development
processes. We want to raise a lively and constructive discussion on pro
and cons, and how in practice we can benefit from both, a MDE and an agile
development process.

This year we would like to introduce, within the workshop, a debate about
major research challenges ahead in which we, as a community, discuss the
next necessary steps to reach a higher adoption of MDWE in industry. Based
on this initial debate, working groups, each focusing on a particular
challenge, are foreseen to elaborate on how MDWE combined with agile
development principles may has to advance in the upcoming years.

****** WORKSHOP TOPICS ******

Both academia and industry are invited to submit papers on the following
(but not exclusive) topics of interest:
-) MDE in the context of Web application development
-) Combining MDE with agile development processes (e.g., Scrum, eXtreme
Programming, Lean etc.) in the Web context
-) Problems or limitations of MDE and agile development in the Web context
-) Using an agile modelling approach (e.g., Agile Model-driven Development
(AMDD) or Agile Unified Process (AUP)) in the Web context
-) Other software engineering approaches (e.g., product line engineering,
aspect-oriented development) for the development of Web applications
-) Using MDE/agile development for rich internet applications (RIAs),
mobile, social, or semantic Web applications
-) Metamodels for model-driven approaches used for Web applications
-) Domain specific modelling languages for Web Engineering
-) Model-driven tools and frameworks for supporting Web development
-) Patterns for the design and implementation of Web applications
-) Web software architecture modelling in MDE approaches
-) Model executability for Web applications (code generation vs.
-) Model-to-model and model-to-code transformations for Web applications
development; quick prototyping and early customer feedback
-) Model-driven analysis of Web applications, including quality,
performance or reliability analysis
-) Maintenance, evolution and management of model-driven generated and
Agile developed Web applications
-) Integration of MDE practices with requirements engineering approaches
for the Web
-) Industrial experiences of Model-driven and Agile Web development
-) Quantitative and qualitative evaluation of the impact of MDE and Agile
practices in Web development process (efficiency, effectiveness,
productivity, understandability)
-) MDE and sustainability on the Web
-) MDE and software engineering education on the Web
-) Model-based testing and quality of code analysis in MDE tools for the
-) Usability and satisfaction of use in MDE tools for and on the Web
-) Approaches to combined Web development (partial code generation with
partial hard-written code) 	
-) Model-driven reverse engineering and re-engineering of Web applications
-) Modeling Web applications in and for the Cloud
-) Migrating legacy Web applications to the Cloud with MDE and Agile
-) Domain-driven design of Web applications
-) Traceability in model-driven and agile approaches for the Web
-) Modeling and executability of secure Web applications


The following categories of submissions will be accepted:

-) Full papers oriented to present elaborated research results. They
should be not more than 15 pages long in Springer LNCS format.
-) Short papers oriented to briefly present research results or ongoing
work. They should be 8 pages long in Springer LNCS format.
-) Demo papers oriented to present new CASE tools. They should be 6 pages
long in Springer LNCS format.

Papers are submitted as PDF files via the MDWE 2013 EasyChair conference
management system: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mdwe2013

Accepted papers will be published-as in previous editions of ICWE-in the
workshop proceedings that will appear as post-proceeding in the Springer
LNCS series and copies are mailed to the corresponding author of the
published papers. 
An editorial board of an international journal will be contacted in order
to publish an extended version of selected best papers.

For a paper to be published, at least one of its authors must register for
the main conference.
