        2nd International Workshop on The Globalization of Modeling 
           September 28, 2014, Valencia, Spain co-located with MODELS 2014

* Context and Motivation

Software intensive systems are becoming more and more complex and
communicative. Consequently, the development of such systems usually 
involves a
split of the system in different concerns and skills. These concerns may be
specified in dedicated and adequate languages, technologies and abstraction
levels. Eventually, the development requires the integration of these many
different concerns. This multiplication of languages eases the development
related to one specific concern but raises language and technology 
problems at the different stages of the software life cycle. In order to 
about the global system, it becomes necessary to explicitly describe the
relationships that exist between the different languages all along the
development cycle. To support effective language integration, there is a
pressing need to reify and classify these relationships, as well as the 
interactions that the relationships enable. In this context, the 
workshop GEMOC
2014 aims to attract submissions that outline language integration 
case studies, or that identify and discuss well defined problems about the
management of relationships between heterogeneous modeling languages. 
The goal
is to facilitate good discussions among the participants that lead to an 
classification of the kinds of language relationships and their management.

This 2014 edition of the GEMOC workshop will follow the successful first
edition at MODELS 2013 in Miami, FL, USA. This new edition will complete 
state of the art and practice started last year. It will also strengthen 
community that broadens the current DSML research focus beyond the 
of independent DSMLs to one that provides support for globalized DSMLs.

GEMOC 2014 is supported by the GEMOC initiative that promotes research 
to develop the necessary breakthroughs in software languages to support 
software engineering, i.e., breakthroughs that lead to effective 
supporting different forms of language integration, including language
collaboration, interoperability and composability.

* Topics

The topics of interest for GEMOC 2014 include:

     - Composability, coordination and interoperability of heterogeneous
       modeling languages
     - Language integration challenges, from requirements to runtime 
       design, for analysis and simulation, etc.
     - Model and metamodel composition (towards structural only composition)
     - Heterogeneous modeling and simulation

Submissions describing practical and industrial experience related to 
the use
of heterogeneous modeling languages are also encouraged, particularly in 
following application domains:

     - Cyber-Physical Systems, System of Systems
     - Smart City, Smart Building, Home automation
     - Complex Adaptive Systems
     - Internet of Services, Internet of Things

* Types of Contributions

We expect as contributions, descriptions of case studies on coordinated 
use of
multiple modeling languages, and/or descriptions of practical experience,
opinions and related approaches. Authors will be invited to submit short 
describing (i) their language integration experience, or (ii) novel 
for integrating modeling languages. Authors will also be invited to 
store full
versions of models used to illustrate their novel approach or experience 
on the
Repository for Model Driven Development (ReMoDD). This allows us to 
share the
models with participants and the wider modeling community before and 
after the

Each contribution must be described in short paper (6 pages) or long 
paper (10
pages) in the LNCS format. Each paper should describe problems, case 
and solutions related to the topics of interest. Each paper is expected to
highlight the relationships between modeling languages as well as their

Papers that describe novel or existing integration approaches should be
accompanied by concrete artifacts, such as models (requirement, design,
analysis, transformation, composition, etc.), stored in ReMoDD. 
Artifacts should
illustrate any experience on the conjoint use of different modeling 

Submitted articles must not have been previously published or currently be
submitted for publication elsewhere. The program chairs will apply the
principles of the ACM Plagiarism Policy throughout the submission and 
process. All contributions will be reviewed and selected by the program
committee members.

* Submission

Each contribution must not exceed 6 pages (short paper) or 10 pages (long
papers) in the LNCS format and must be submitted electronically in pdf 
via Easychair. In addition, the concrete models referenced in a 
should be submitted to ReMoDD. To do so, authors will have to do the 
Create a ReMoDD account if they do not have one and and join the
GEMOC at MODELS2014 group.
Create a Group Post (see right side of ReMoDD website) for the 
group, provide a title, and attach your concrete artifacts file to this 

* Publication

The accepted papers will be published by CEUR in the workshop proceedings,
which is indexed by DBLP. Moreover, the models will be published on ReMoDD.
Also, participants will be strongly encouraged to participate in 
preparing the
workshop report. This report will provide a classification of the possible
relationships between modeling languages and a survey of integration
