** 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 purpose of this 2-day workshop is to promote the use of models in
the engineering of software systems. In particular, we are interested in
the exchange of innovative technical ideas and experiences related to
modeling. Engineers have used models to effectively manage complexity
for centuries, and there is a growing body of work on the use of models
to manage inherent problem and solution complexity in software
development. The use of software models will become more prevalent as
methodologies and tools that manipulate models at various levels of
abstraction become available.

Workshop activities will focus on analyzing successful applications of
software-modeling techniques to gain insights into challenging modeling
problems, including: (1) identifying, describing, and using appropriate
abstractions, (2) supporting incremental, iterative development through
the use of appropriate model composition, transformation and other model
manipulation operators, and (3) automated analysis of possibly large,
possibly incomplete models to determine the presence or absence of
desired and undesired properties. Topics of interest include:

- Modeling notations and tools
- Metamodeling
- Abstractions and modeling methodologies
- Model-based analysis and synthesis
- Model transformation and composition
- Model evaluation
- Model management
- Extracting models from software artifacts
- Models for learning machines
- Models of big and smart data
- Use of models for downstream activities
- Modeling the system environment
- Modeling cyber-physical systems
- Models at runtime (e.g., for software adaptation)
- Models for ``what-if?'' analysis and prognostics
- Empirical studies
- Domain-specific modeling
- management using models
- Model reuse
- Further uses of modeling

*** Submission Details ***

Prospective participants are invited to submit a 5-7 page position or
technical paper. Workshop papers must follow the ICSE 2017 Format and
Submission Guideline. All submissions will be reviewed by members of the
program committee and the organizing committee for quality and
relevance. Accepted papers will become part of the workshop proceedings.
EasyChair will be used to manage the submission review process. Paper
can be submitted via Easy Chair using the following link:


The official publication date of the workshop proceedings is the date
the proceedings are made available in the IEEE Digital Library. This
date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of ICSE 2017. The
official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings
related to published work.
