                Workshop at MODELS:         Sunday, October 14th


The complexity of adapting software during runtime has spawned interest 
in  how
models can be used to validate, monitor and adapt runtime  behaviour. 
The  use
of models during runtime extends the use  of  modelling  techniques 
beyond  the
design and implementation phases. The goal  of  this  workshop  is  to 
look  at
issues related to developing appropriate  model-driven  approaches  to 
and monitoring the execution of systems. We aim to continue  the 
discussion  of
research ideas and proposals from researchers who work in  relevant 
areas  such
as MDE, software architectures, reflection,   and  autonomic  and 
systems, and provide  a  "state-of-the-art"  research  assessment 
expressed  in
terms of challenges and achievements.


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  apply
model-driven techniques at runtime,
b) to bring together researchers  from  the  model-driven  software 
community of different  specialized  areas  including  model  evolution, 
transformation,   model   validation    and    multi-paradigm 
modeling    and
c) to discuss the applicability  of  research  results  on  models at run. 
time  to
industrial case studies.
Moreover, we plan to use the workshop as a meeting place for the 
community  and
want to collect and classify research results  of  the  past  10  years 
for  an
overview paper of the maturing research area.

Workshop format

The workshop participants will be selected based on their experience 
and  ideas
related to this maturing field. You are  invited  to  apply  for 
attendance  by
-  a  full  paper  (10  pages)  on  original  research,   lessons 
learned  from
realizing an approach or experiences on transferring a research 
prototype  into
- a position  paper  (6  pages)  covering  a  well-argued  vision  or 
- a demo paper  (2  pages)  describing  a  demonstration  to  be  shown 
at  the
- an artifact paper (2 pages) together with the artifact, which  is  of 
use  to
the community (e.g.,  a  reusable  case  study  or  a  challenging 
example)  or
- 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

All  papers  must  conform  to  the  Springer  LNCS    formatting 
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs (it is the same format of the 
see conference website for more information). Artifacts  will  be 
published  in
ReMoDD, the repository for model-driven development
(http://www.cs.colostate. edu/remodd/v1/).   At  least  three  PC 
members  will
review each submission. The authors will be  notified  about  acceptance 
the MODELS 2018 early registration deadline.

Topics of Interest

Papers can relate (but aren't limited) to the following domains:
-	Big Data: application of models at runtime to reflect and adapt the 
   of big data applications
-	Cyber-physical Systems: hybrid runtime models
-	Business Processes: runtime models of (business) workflows
-	Cloud Computing: runtime models for, e.g., multi-tenant systems
-	Self-adaptive and self-organizing systems in general

We strongly encourage authors to address the following topics in  their 

- The causal  connection  between  the  system  and  the  runtime 
model,   with
particular focus on a transaction concept for this  causal  connection 
roll-back ability and data-consistency)
- Distributed models at run.time, i.e.,   having  multiple,   interacting 
each 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 
multiple, interacting models at run.time systems
- No papers on executable models, unless they  are  causally 
(bi-)connected  to
a running system  (else  consider  to  submit  to  the  co-located 
workshop  on
executable modeling).
