Call for Papers: 4th International Workshop on Scalable Model Driven Engineering (BigMDE 2016)

A STAF workshop
July, 2016, Vienna, Austria

Important Dates
Deadline for submissions: April 25, 2016
Notification of authors: May 25, 2016
Camera-ready: June 26, 2016
Workshop date: July, 2016

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 to 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’s conclusions, identify the open issues, and outline future lines of work.

Selection procedure
All submissions will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. Papers must be submitted in PDF format and strictly adhere to the ACM SIG proceedings format. We advocate two types of papers: tool demonstration papers which should not exceed 4 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 (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bigmde16). 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
We aim to publish accepted papers in the form of a CEUR Workshop Proceedings (http://ceur-ws.org/) volume.
