BigMDE 2015: 3rd International Workshop on Scalable Model Driven Engineering

A STAF workshop
Thursday, July 23rd, 2015 - L'Aquila, Italy


Important Dates
Abstract submission: 24 April 2015
Paper submission: 8 May 2015
Author notification: 5 June 2015
Camera-ready version: 19 June 2015

Workshop summary
As Model Driven Engineering (MDE) is increasingly applied to larger
and more complex systems, the current generation of modelling and
model management technologies are being pushed to their limits in
terms of capacity and efficiency. As such, additional research and
development is imperative in order to enable MDE to remain relevant
with industrial practice and to continue delivering its
widely−recognised productivity, quality, and maintainability benefits.

The aim of this workshop is to provide a venue where developers and
users of modelling and model management languages and tools can
present problems and solutions related to topics such as:

− Working with large models
− Collaborative modelling (version control, collaborative editing )
− Transformation and validation of large models
− Model fragmentation and modularity mechanisms
− Efficient model persistence and retrieval
− Models and model transformations on the cloud
− Visualization techniques for large models
− High−performance MDE (not necessarily related to large models)
− Identification of scalability and performance issues in MDE (not
necessarily solutions)

Workshop format
The duration of the workshop is one day. The workshop format includes
a keynote talk, as well as paper and demo presentations. The workshop
will close with a wrap−up discussion that will formulate the workshop
conclusions, identify the open issues, and outline future lines of

Selection procedure
All submissions will be reviewed by at least three members of the
program committee. Papers must be submitted in PDF and adhere to the
LNCS format. We advocate two types of papers: tool demonstration
papers which should not exceed 6 pages in size, and regular papers
which should not exceed 10 pages including all text, references,
appendices and figures. Paper submissions will be made electronically
via the workshop submission web page, using the EasyChair service. All
submissions must be original work, and must not have been previously
published, nor be under consideration for publication, elsewhere. At
least one author of each accepted paper should register for the
conference and participate in the workshop.

Publication plans
Accepted papers will be published in the open-access DBLP-indexed CEUR
Workshop Proceedings (http://ceur-ws.org/).
