Call for Papers:
6th International Workshop on the Globalization of Modeling Languages
(GEMOC 2018)
co-located with MODELS 2018,
October 15 2018,
Copenhagen, Denmark

We are pleased to invite you to submit papers to the 6th International
Workshop on the Globalization of Modeling Languages (GEMOC 2018), held
in conjunction with the ACM/IEEE 21th International Conference on Model
Driven Engineering Languages and Systems (MODELS) at Copenhagen,
Denmark, on October 15 2018.

Context and Motivation

Software intensive systems are becoming more complex, driven by the
need to integrate across multiple concerns. Consequently, the
development of such systems requires the integration of different
concerns and skills. These concerns are usually covered by different
languages, with specific concepts, technologies and abstraction levels.
This multiplication of languages eases the development related to one
specific concern but raises language and technology integration
problems at the different stages of the software life cycle. In order
to reason about the global system, it becomes necessary to explicitly
describe the different kinds of relationships that exist between the
different languages used in the development of a complex system. To
support effective language integration, there is a pressing need to
reify and classify these relationships, as well as the language
interactions that the relationships enable.

The 2018 edition of the GEMOC workshop will follow the successful
previous five editions: GEMOC at MODELS 2013 in Miami, USA, GEMOC at
MODELS 2014 in Valencia, Spain, GEMOC at MODELS 2015 in Ottawa, Canada,
GEMOC at MODELS 2016 in Saint-Malo, France, and GEMOC at MODELS 2017 in
Austin, TX, USA. This edition will complete the state-of-the-art and
practice initiated during the last years. It will also strengthen the
community that broadens the current DSML research focus beyond the
development of independent DSMLs to a research focus that provides
support for globalized DSMLs.

GEMOC 2018 is supported by the GEMOC initiative and its associated
Eclipse Research consortium, which promotes research seeking to develop
the necessary breakthroughs in software languages to support global
software engineering, i.e., breakthroughs that lead to effective
technologies supporting different forms of language integration,
including language collaboration, interoperability and composability.


The topics of interest for GEMOC 2018 include:

* Tools and methods for engineering modeling languages
* Composability and interoperability of heterogeneous modeling
* Language integration challenges, from requirement to design, for
analysis and simulation, during runtime, etc.
* Model and metamodel composition
* Language interface, viewpoint
* Heterogeneous modeling and simulation
* Language-based socio-technical coordination
* Multi-language or multi-disciplinary environment

Submissions describing practical and industrial experience related to
the use of heterogeneous modeling languages are also encouraged,
particularly in the following application domains:

* Cyber-Physical Systems, System of Systems
* Internet of Services, Internet of Things
* Complex Adaptive Systems
* Smart City, Smart Building, Home automation
* Smart Grids, management of renewable and intermittent energy sources
* Industry 4.0 and the smart factory of the future


As contributions, we expect early research results about the
aforementioned topics, descriptions of case studies on the coordinated
use of multiple modeling languages, and/or descriptions of practical
experience, opinions and related approaches.

Each contribution must be described in a short paper not exceeding 3
pages in the ACM sigconf format, or a full paper not exceeding 6 pages
in the ACM sigconf format. Each paper should describe problems, case
studies, or solutions related to the topics of interest. Each paper is
expected to highlight the relationships between modeling languages, as
well as their management.

Papers that describe use cases, or novel integration approaches can be
accompanied by concrete artifacts, such as models (requirements,
design, analysis, transformation, composition, etc.), stored in a
public repository (e.g., ReMoDD). Artifacts should illustrate any
experience on the conjoint use of different modeling languages.

Submitted articles must not have been previously published or currently
submitted for publication elsewhere. The program chairs will apply the
principles of the ACM Plagiarism Policy throughout the submission and
review process. All contributions will be reviewed and selected by the
program committee members.

Each contribution must be submitted electronically in PDF format via
Easychair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=gemoc2018

The accepted papers will be published by CEUR in the workshop
proceedings. Also, participants will be strongly encouraged to
participate in preparing the workshop report.

Important Dates
* Abstract submission deadline: July 10, 2018
* Paper submission deadline: July 17, 2018
* Notification of acceptance: August 17, 2018
* Workshop: October 15, 2018

Workshop Format

The format of the workshop reflects the goals of the workshop:
constructive feedback on submitted papers and other artifacts on the
conjoint use of different modeling languages, collaborations, and
community building. The format of the workshop is that of a working
meeting. Hence, there is less focus on presentations and more focus on
producing and documenting a research content that identifies
challenges, different forms of language integration, and relates
existing solutions.

The workshop consists of a morning session in which a keynote and short
presentations of the accepted papers will be given. A significant
amount of time will be reserved for discussing each paper and their
relations to each other. The afternoon session is devoted to a working
session dedicated to open discussions of the presented contributions
and other topics suggested by the participants. The closing session is
dedicated to develop a plan to publish the results of the discussion in
a final workshop report.
