8th International Workshop on Modelling in Software Engineering (MiSE'2016)

Co-located with ICSE 2016

Austin, USA, 16-17 May 2016



** Theme and Goals **

Models have long been used in the development of complex systems. Their
use is becoming more prevalent in the software development domain as
modeling techniques and tools mature. Despite this, there are many
challenging issues that the modeling research community must address if
software modeling practices are to become mainstream. Furthermore
software and systems become more intertwined and the modeling techniques
used for systems engineering need to be harmonized with software models.

The primary goal of this workshop is to foster exchange of innovative
ideas on the use of models in software engineering. Another goal of this
workshop is to further promote crossfertilization between the
model-driven engineering (MDE) communities (e.g., MODELS) and
software-engineering communities. Previous versions of the workshop
showed that while there is great interest in collaborations and
discussions across these communities, there are differences in
terminologies and concepts that need to be harmonized for effective
communication to take place. To ensure that discussions at the 2016
workshop progress beyond the basic alignment of concepts, potential
workshop participants will be encouraged to familiarize themselves with
the papers presented at the previous and current MiSE workshop in the
calls for papers and for participation.

The workshop provides a forum for discussing and critically analyzing
modeling techniques with respect to their purposes in software
engineering processes. Participants engage in the exchange of innovative
technical ideas and experiences related to modeling, including modeling
notations, abstraction techniques, modeling strategies, and use of
models in development activities, including system configuration, system
simulation, testing, and product line variability management.
