Proceedings online: 19 September 2014

In recent years there has been growing interest in the use of multi-level
modelling approaches to better represent the multiple classification 
levels that
are frequently found in the real world and are needed to effectively 
languages. Multi-Level modelling approaches have not only been successfully
used in numerous industrial projects and standards definition 
initiatives they
are now supported by an array of dedicated tools. However there is still no
clear consensus on what multi-level modelling actually is and what kinds of
constructs and concepts provide the best support for it. For example, 
there are
diverging views on whether it is sound to combine instance facets and type
facets into so-called clabjects, whether strict metamodelling is too 
and what principles should be used in establishing meta-level 
boundaries, etc.
The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners
interested in multi-level modelling to debate foundations, discuss 
challenges in
applying multi-level modelling techniques and share experiences regarding
multi-level modelling tools.


The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners
with an interest in multi-level modelling to foster a fruitful 
cross-pollination of
ideas and lay the foundation for a unified discipline. In particular, 
the workshop
will aim to identify a set of criteria for judging the strengths and 
of different multi-level modelling approaches and for defining possible
benchmark case studies. We encourage submissions on new concepts,
implementation approaches and formalisms as well as submissions on
controversial positions, requirements for evaluation criteria or case-study
scenarios. Contributions in the area of tool building, multi-level modelling
applications, and educational material are also welcome.


Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
* the exact nature of elements in a multi-level hierarchy and how best to
   represent them
* the importance and role of potency and its variants such as durability
* the role of power types and the best way to represent them
* the structure and labelling of a multi-level modelling framework
* methods and technique for discovering multi-level elements, 
   and classification relationships
* formal approaches to multi-level modelling
* experiences and challenges in providing tools for multi-level modelling
* experiences and challenges in applying multi-level modelling techniques to
   large and/or real world problems
* model management languages (transformation, constraint etc.) in a 
* criteria for comparing multi-level modelling approaches
* comparisons of multi-level and two-level solutions for modelling problems


Two kinds of papers are solicited: regular papers (max 10 pages), and 
papers (max 6 pages), adhering to Springer LNCS style. Accepted papers will
be published as CEUR-WS workshop proceedings, and indexed in DBLP.
The best papers will be considered for publication, in an extended form, 
in a
theme issue of the Journal of Software & Systems Modeling (SoSyM).
