CALL FOR PAPERS (PDF: http://msdl.cs.mcgill.ca/conferences/MPM/files/cfp.pdf
8th Workshop on Multi-Paradigm Modelling (MPM)
Valencia, Spain
Co-located with:
ACM/IEEE 17th International Conference on Model Driven Engineering
Languages and Systems
   The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners in the
area of Multi-Paradigm Modeling in order to identify possible points of
synergy, common
problems and solutions, tool building aspects and visions for the future of
the area.

   Paper submission deadline: July 11, 2014
   Notification of acceptance: August 22, 2014
   Camera-ready papers due: September 7, 2014

   The essential element of multi-paradigm modeling is the use of explicit
heterogeneous models throughout. This leads to a framework with omnipresent
Some represent the syntax of formalisms used for modeling, others are used
to model the
transformations that represent the operational semantics, as well as
transformations for inter-formalism transformation. Moreover, others are
used to model
the composition of models or even to model the composition of modeling
These models are then used to facilitate generative tasks in a language
engineering space,
such as evolving a domain specific modeling formalism as its requirements
change, but also
in a tool engineering space, such as automatic generation of integrated
environments. The use of ubiquitous explicit models during the whole system
process, from modeling formalism definition to system implementation,
allows multiple
types of analyses at various levels with great benefits in terms of
performance, cost-
effectiveness, safety, etc.

TOPICS OF INTEREST (including, but not limited to)
- Heterogeneous models: multi-domain and multi-physics modeling, multi-view
    modeling, multi-abstraction modeling;
- Heterogeneity in modeling languages: engineering of the modeling
language, modeling
- Models of Computation (MoCs), quality evaluation and usability of
modeling languages;
- Multi-Paradigm Modeling techniques: model transformation, model
composition and
    integration, modeling cross-domain interactions, model-based detection
of unanticipated
    interactions in heterogeneous systems, visualization of multi-paradigm
- Applications of and experience with current MPM techniques.
Non-exhaustive list of
    domains: healthcare, smart cities, smart homes, automotive, future
energy systems,
    human-computer interaction, etc.

Contributions should clearly address the foundations of multi-paradigm
modeling by
demonstrating the use of models to achieve the stated objectives and
discuss the benefits
of explicit modeling.

   Papers must be submitted electronically as PDF via EasyChair from the
workshop web site:


   Papers will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the program
   All accepted workshop papers will be published by CEUR, and will be
indexed by DBLP.

   Conceptual papers, as well as application and tool papers, are all
Papers may be short (max. 6 pages) or full (max. 10 pages) and must follow
the LNCS style
available at the workshop web site.
