                    ECMFA 2014: Call for Papers
10th European Conference on Modelling Foundations and Applications 2014
                        York, United Kingdom
                       21st - 25th July, 2014

Model-Based Engineering (MBE) is an approach to the design, analysis and
development of software and systems that relies on exploiting high-level
models and computer-based automation to achieve significant boosts in
both productivity and quality.

The ECMFA conference series is dedicated to advancing the state of
knowledge and fostering the industrial application of MBE and related
approaches. Its focus is on engaging the key figures of research and
industry in a dialog which will result in stronger and more effective
practical application of MBE, hence producing more reliable software
based on state-of-the-art research results.

ECMFA 2014 will be co-located with ICMT, TAP, ICGT and TTC as part of
the STAF federation of leading conferences on software technologies
(http://stafconferences.info). The joint organisation of these prominent
conferences provides a unique opportunity to gather practitioners and
researchers interested in all aspects of software technology, and allow
them to interact with each other.


- Abstract submission deadline:   January 28, 2014
- Papers submission deadline:     February 4, 2014
- Notification to authors:        March 11, 2014


ECMFA has two distinct Paper Tracks: one for research papers (Track F)
dealing with the foundations for MBE, and one for
industrial/applications papers (Track A) dealing with the applications
of MBE, including experience reports on MBE tools.

* Research Papers (Track F)

In this track, we are soliciting papers presenting original research on
all aspects of MBE. Typical topics of interest include, among others:

- Foundations of (Meta)modelling
- Domain Specific Modelling Languages and Language Workbenches
- Model Reasoning, Testing and Validation
- Model Transformation, Code Generation and Reverse Engineering
- Model Execution and Simulation
- Model Management aspects: (Co-)Evolution, Consistency,
- Model-Based Engineering Environments and Tool Chains
- Foundations of Requirements Modelling, Architecture Modelling,
   Platform Modelling
- Foundations of Quality Aspects and Modelling non-functional System
- Scalability of MBE techniques
- Collaborative Modeling

* Industrial Papers (Track A)

In this track, we are soliciting papers representing views, innovations
and experiences of industrial players in applying or supporting MBE. In
particular, we are looking for papers that set requirements on the
foundations, methods, and tools for MBE. We are also seeking experience
reports or case studies on the application, successes or current
shortcomings of MBE. Quantitative results reflecting industrial
experience are particularly appreciated. All application areas of MBE
are welcomed including but not limited to any of the following:

- MBE for Large and Complex Industrial Systems
- MBE for Safety-Critical Systems
- MBE for Health Care
- MBE for Cloud and Mobile Computing
- MBE for Software and Business Process Modelling
- Comparative Studies of MBE Methods and Tools
- Metrics for MBE Development
- MBE Training


Manuscripts for both tracks must be submitted as PDF files through the
EasyChair online submission system:
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ecmfa2014. Please ensure
that you submit to the right track!

Research papers should be up to 16 pages long; Industrial papers should
be 12 pages long. In both cases, papers must be compliant with the LNCS
paper style (see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). Failure
to conform to these guidelines may result in disqualification of the
paper. In particular, papers longer than the maximum number of pages may
be automatically rejected without review.

All contributions will be subject to a rigorous selection process by the
Program Committee. No simultaneous submission to other publication
outlets (either a conference or a journal) is allowed; any concurrent
submission will result in the immediate rejection of the paper.

As in previous years, the proceedings of the conference with the
accepted papers of both Tracks will be published in a dedicated Springer
LNCS volume. If accepted, one of the authors must attend the ECMFA 2014
conference and present the work in person.
