Workshop summary

Complex systems are now predominant in several domains such as
automotive, health-care, aerospace, industrial control and automation.
Such systems calls for modern engineering practices such as Modeling/MDE
to tackle advances in productivity and quality of these now
Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSs). However, the proposed solutions need to
be further developed to scale up for real-life industrial projects and
to provide significant benefits at execution time. To this intent, one
of the major challenges is to work on achieving a more efficient
integration between the design and runtime aspects of the concerned
systems: The system behaviour at runtime has to be better matched with
the original system design in order to be able to understand critical
situations that may occur, as well as corresponding potential failures
in design. Methods and tools already exist (many of them not
model-based) for monitoring system execution and performing measurements
of runtime properties. However they do not usually allow a relevant
integration with (and/or a traceability back to) design models. Such a
feedback loop from runtime is highly relevant at design time, the most
suitable level for system engineers to analyse and take impactful
decisions accordingly.

The objective of this workshop is to provide a venue where researchers
and practitioners on model-driven/model-based techniques and
architectures for complex systems can meet, disseminate and exchange
ideas or challenges, identify current/future key issues and explore
possible solutions. Possible topics include notably:

- Model-based techniques, methods and tools allowing any interactions
  between design time and runtime (possibly resulting from heterogeneous
  engineering practices);
- Model-based techniques, methods and tools for inferring design
  deviations and identifying affected elements over a (possibly large)
  spectrum of runtime system configurations or conditions;
- Methods and techniques allowing to practically integrate, possibly in
  different ways, any feedback collected at runtime into design level
- Integrated model-based methods and techniques for runtime analysis and
  design input collection, e.g. based on probes injection to some runtime
- V&V mechanisms for linking results of runtime analysis (e.g. from
  execution traces) with design models expressing system requirements
  (both functional and non-functional ones);
- (Industrial) case studies, experience reports, literature reviews or
  visionary positions related to any of the previously mentioned topics.

Workshop format

Papers must be submitted in PDF format and strictly adhere to the LNCS
proceedings format. We advocate two types of papers:

- Research papers (maximum 10 pages);
- Short papers (maximum 6 pages) describing experience reports, tool
  demonstrations or position papers.

Paper submissions will be made electronically via the workshop
submission web page at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mdederun2019
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.

Selection procedure

All submissions will be reviewed by at least three members of the
program committee.

Publication plans

All accepted papers will be published in the STAF'19 Workshop
post-proceedings volume published in Springer LNCS.
