9th International Workshop on Multi--Paradigm Modeling (MPM)

September 27-29, 2015

Satellite event @ MODELS 2015 - Ottawa, Canada


  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 17, 2015
 Notification of acceptance:   August 21, 2015

  Computational modeling has become the industry norm to remain competitive
and be successful. As such, Model-Based Design of complex,
software-intensive systems has enterprise-wide implications and modeling is
not limited to isolated uses by a single engineer or team. Instead, it has
reached a proliferation much akin to large software design, with
requirements for infrastructure support such as version control,
configuration management, and automated processing.

  The comprehensive use of models in design has created a set of challenges
beyond that of supporting one isolated design task. In particular, the need
to combine, couple, and integrate models at different levels of abstraction
and in different formalisms is posing a set of specific problems that
Multi-Paradigm Modeling (MPM) aims to address.

  The essential element of multi-paradigm modeling is the use of explicit
and heterogeneous models throughout. This leads to a framework with
omnipresent models. Some represent the syntax of formalisms used for
modeling, others are used to model the transformations that represent the
operational semantics, as well as model-to-model transformations for
inter-formalism transformation. Moreover, others are used to model the
composition of models or even to model the composition of modeling
formalisms. 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 development environments. The
use of ubiquitous explicit models during the whole system design 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 languages,
    modeling Models of Computation (MoCs) and semantic adaptation,
- Multi-Paradigm Modeling techniques:
    model transformation,
    model composition and integration,
    modeling cross-domain interactions,
    model-based detection of unanticipated interactions in heterogeneous
    (co-) simulation of heterogeneous models,
    visualization of multi-paradigm models;
- Applications of and experience with current MPM techniques.
Non-exhaustive list of domains:
    smart cities,
    smart homes,
    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.
