For the 10th edition of the workshop, we have taken a step  back  and
the original ideas of the workshop to evaluate its  achievements  and
during the 10 years. In consequence, we  have  strengthened  the  focus  of
workshop and  diversified  the  types  of  contributions.   However,   the
motivation remains the use of models at runtime.  To  keep  the  system's
fulfilled in a changing environment, software is  required  (i)  to
 reflect  on
itself and its  environment,   and  (ii)  to  adjust  itself  accordingly.
models at run.time paradigm proposes to use  modeling  techniques  to  capture
process the information to support this, using runtime models, i. e.  ,
representing a view on the current state of the system. Thus, models at run.
is an enabler for many types of current and future  software  systems
self-adaptive and self-organizing systems as  well  as  cyber-physical

The objectives of this year's edition of  the  models at run.   time  workshop
are: a) to foster work on novel topics covering fundamental as well  as
research on models at run.time or,   in  general,   work  that  attempts  to
model-driven techniques at runtime, b) to bring together  researchers  from
model-driven software  development  community  of  different  specialized
including  model  evolution,   model  transformation,   model  validation
multi-paradigm modeling,  and  c)  to  discuss  the  applicability  of
results on models at run.time to industrial  or  other  real  world  case

The workshop participants will be selected based on their experience  and
related to this maturing field. You are  invited  to  apply  for
 attendance  by sending:
- a full paper (10 pages) on original research, lessons learned from
  an approach or experiences on transferring a research prototype into
- a position paper (6 pages) covering a well-argued vision or position,
- an artifact paper (6 pages) together with the artifact, which is of use
to the
  community (e.g., a reusable case study or a challenging example) or
- a demo paper (4 pages) describing a demonstration to be shown at the
- a short motivation (max. 100 words) to give a 5-minute lightning talk, to
  introduce yourself to the community at the end of the first session of
the workshop.

All  papers  must  conform  to  the  Springer  LNCS    formatting
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs. Artifacts will be  published  in
the repository for model-driven development (
Motivations for  lightning  talks will not be published. At least three PC
members will
review  each  submission.   The authors  will  be  notified  about
 acceptance  before  the
 MODELS  2015  early registration deadline.

Papers on models at run.time can relate (but  are  not  limited) to  the
- The role of runtime models in different communities: self-organizing
autonomic systems, organic computing and self-adaptive systems
- Big Data: e.g., application of models at runtime to reflect and adapt the
composition and deployment of big data processing and storage components
- Cyber-physical Systems: hybrid runtime models
- Business Processes: runtime models of (business) workflows
- Cloud Computing: runtime models for, e.g., multi-tenant systems

We  strongly  encourage  authors  to  address  the  following  topics  in
- The causal connection between the system and the runtime model, with
  particular focus on a transaction concept for this causal connection
  (timing, roll-back ability and data-consistency)
- Distributed models at run.time, i.e., having multiple, interacting systems,
  having an own runtime model
- Modular models at run.time, i.e., approaches to improve the modularity of
  models at run.time systems
- Co-evolving models at run.time, i.e., systematic approaches to synchronize
  multiple, interacting models at run.time systems
- For those papers focusing on executable models at runtime, we encourage
  investigation of how the feedback from the systems are reflected in the
  executable models (so that they have causal (bi-)connections with the
