Call for Papers

MPM 09
3rd International Workshop on Multi-Paradigm Modeling: Concepts and

October 6, 2009 (Preliminary Date)
Denver, Colorado, USA


In conjunction with MODELS Conference
October 4-9, 2009
Denver, Colorado, USA


Modeling has become the norm in industry to remain competitive and be
successful. As such, Model-Based Design of embedded software has
enterprise-wide implications and modeling is not limited to isolated
uses by a single engineer or team. Instead, it has reached a
proliferation much akin to large-scale software design, with
requirements for infrastructure support such as version control,
configuration management, and automated processing.

The comprehensive use of models in design has created a set of
challenges beyond that of supporting one isolated design task. In
particular, the need to combine, couple, and integrate models at
different levels of abstraction and in different formalisms is posing
a set of specific problems that the field of Computer Automated
Multiparadigm Modeling (CAMPaM) is aiming to address.

The essential element of multiparadigm modeling is the use of explicit
heterogeneous models throughout. This leads to a framework with models
to represent the syntax of formalisms used for modeling, models of the
transformations that represent the operational semantics, as well as
model-to-model transformations for mapping between formalisms. These
models are then used to facilitate generative tasks in language
engineering, such as evolving a domain specific modeling formalism as
system's requirements change, but also in a tool engineering space,
such as automatic generation of integrated development environments.
Moreover, an explicit model of a model transformation allows analyses
such as termination characteristics, consistency, and determinism.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:
Language engineering:
* concepts for multiple paradigm composition
* existing multiparadigm approaches
 - analysis
 - overview
* composability and compositionality
 - generic reasoning techniques
 - scalability of compositions
 - model integration
Tool engineering:
* concepts for tool support of multiparadigm modeling
* tool support for compositional language constructs
* multiparadigm modeling tools

* modeling concrete and abstract syntax and their relation
* integration of visual and textual modeling techniques
* executability and support for code generation
* model transformation modeling
 - modularity
 - textual or visual specification
 - declarative vs. imperative approaches
 - execution control
 - verification of properties
* traceability
* model composition in different formalisms at the syntax and
semantics level

Contributions should clearly address the foundations of multiparadigm
modeling by demonstrating the use of models to achieve the stated
objectives and discuss the benefits of explicit modeling.

Important dates:
Paper submission deadline: July 31, 2009
Notification of acceptance: September 5, 2009
Camera-ready papers due: September 12, 2009

Submission procedure:
Papers must be submitted electronically as PDF via
http://avalon.aut.bme.hu/mpm09/. Papers should not exceed ten (10)
pages and follow the style available at the workshop web site.

Papers will be peer reviewed. Accepted papers will be published in the
workshop proceedings in Electronic Communications of the EASST. The
authors of the best two papers will be invited for the LNCS volume
(conference post-proceedings with the best papers of the workshops) to
provide their extended versions including the workshop feedbacks and
further research results.
