ACM/IEEE 17th International Conference
on Model-Driven Engineering Language & Systems

Call for Contributions

Sept. 28th - Oct. 3rd, 2014 – Valencia, Spain


MODELS in its 17th edition cordially invite contributions related to all
aspects of model-based engineering!

MODELS is the premier conference series for model-based software and
systems engineering which since 1998 has been covering all aspects of
modeling, from languages and methods to tools and applications. MODELS
2014 challenges the modeling community to promote the magic of modeling
by solidifying and extending the foundations and successful applications
of modeling in areas such as business information and embedded systems,
but also by exploring the use of modeling for new and emerging systems,
paradigms, and challenges including cyber-physical systems, cloud
computing, services, social media, security, and open source. We invite
you to join us in Valencia and to help shape the modelling methods and
technologies of the future!

Foundations Track Papers
We invite authors to submit original papers in the following categories:

1. Technical papers describing original scientifically rigorous
solutions to significant model-based development problems.

2. Exploratory papers describing new, non-conventional model-based
development research positions or approaches.

3. Empirical evaluation papers assessing existing problem cases or
scientifically validating proposed solutions through, e.g., controlled
experiments, case studies, or simulations. Authors are encouraged to
make the artifacts used for the evaluation publically accessible by,
e.g., uploading them to the Repository for Model-Driven Development

4. Modeling Pearls papers describing polished, elegant, instructive, and
insightful applications of modeling techniques or approaches. Modeling
pearls include demonstration case studies, examples of bad modeling
practices that exemplify the problems that can occur if they are not
detected and rectified, and models used in the classroom to illustrate
modeling concepts and practices.

MDE Practice Track Papers

We invite authors to submit original experience reports and case
studies. Each paper should provide clear take-away value by describing
the context of a problem of practical, industrial importance and
application. The paper should discuss why the solution of the problem is
innovative, effective, or efficient and what likely industrial impact it
has or will have; it should provide a concise explanation of the
approach, techniques, and methodologies employed, and explain the best
practices that emerged, tools developed, and/or software processes involved.

for submission as well as the other tracks for MODELS 2014, please visit

MODELS 2014 will take place in the vibrant city of Valencia in Spain.
Valencia is Spain's third largest metropolitan area with facilities to
accommodate visitors attracted to the city from countries all over the
world each year. Valencia offers a rich cultural heritage of music, art,
gastronomy, architecture and folklore. Attendees visiting the city can
enjoy an historic Mediterranean city that is a fascinating mixture of
different cultures and religions that still remains alive in the
numerous city's monuments and typical streets, combined with the most
absolute modernity exemplified by the modern "Ciudad de las Artes y las
Ciencias". With 14 technology institutes, a broad network of
infrastructures and industries, and an academic system formed by 7
universities and their business parks, Valencia also is a recognized
center for education and research. MODELS 2014 will be organized in the
Ciudad Politécnica de la Innovación, which is a scientific park within
the Universitat Politècnica de València campus.
