The 15th workshop on Domain-Specific Modeling


26/27 Oct 2015 at SPLASH/OOPSLA, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States 



Domain-specific modeling (DSM) provides a modern solution to demands for
higher productivity by constricting the gap between problem and solution
modeling. In the past, productivity gains have been sought through new
programming languages. Today, domain-specific modeling languages provide a
viable solution for continuing to raise the level of abstraction beyond
coding, making development faster and easier.


In DSM, the models are constructed using concepts that represent things in
the application domain, not concepts of a given programming language. The
modeling language follows the domain abstractions and semantics, allowing
developers to perceive themselves as working directly with domain concepts.
Together with frameworks and platforms, DSM can automate a large portion of
software production.


The workshop welcomes submissions that address DSM on practical or
theoretical levels. Some of the issues that we would like to see addressed in
this workshop are:

- Industry/academic experience reports describing success/failure in
implementing and using DSM languages/tools 

- Approaches to identify constructs for DSM languages 

- Novel features in language workbenches / tools to support DSM 

- Approaches to implement metamodel-based modeling languages 

- Metamodeling frameworks and languages 

- Modularization technologies for DSM languages and models 

- Novel approaches for code generation from domain-specific models 

- Issues of support/maintenance for systems built with DSM 

- Evolution of languages along with their domain 

- Organizational and process issues in DSM adoption and use 


Submission deadline: August 7, 2015
