*Workshop Description*
Aspect-orientation is a rapidly advancing technology. New and powerful
aspect-oriented programming techniques are presented at many
international venues every year. However, it is not clear what features
of such techniques are "common aspect-oriented concepts" and what
features are rather language-specific specialties. Research in
aspect-oriented modeling has the potential to help find such common
characteristics from a perspective that is at a more abstract level
(i.e., programming language-independent).

The Aspect-Oriented Modeling (AOM) Workshop brings together researchers
and practitioners from two communities, aspect-oriented software
development (AOSD) and model-driven engineering.  This workshop provides
a forum for presenting new ideas and discussing the state of research
and practice in modeling various kinds of crosscutting concerns at
different levels of abstraction. The goals of the workshop are to
identify and discuss the impacts of aspect-oriented technologies on
model engineering to provide aspect-oriented software developers with
general modeling means to express aspects and their crosscutting
relationships onto other software artifacts.

*Workshop Topics*
We are interested in submissions on all topics related to aspects and
model engineering including, but not limited to:

- Aspect-Oriented Modeling
  - defining essential characteristics of a crosscutting concern that
    need to be modeled;
  - verification and validation of aspect-oriented models;
  - composition of aspect-oriented models;
  - modeling of aspects at different stages of software development
    (requirements engineering, architecture, design, implementation);
  - application of AOM to modeling notations that are not tied to UML.
- Aspect-Oriented UML
  - identification of UML elements that can be used to model aspects;
  - identification of UML elements that can NOT be used to model
  - aspect-oriented support in UML;
  - extensions to UML for supporting AOSD.
- AOSD Method and Tool Support
  - aspect-oriented and model-based software development methods;
  - using existing UML tools in AOSD life-cycles;
  - new tools and extensions to existing tools to support AOM;
- Model-Oriented AOP and JPM
  - join point selection at model levels;
  - MOF, UML, MDA, etc. as a support to the JPM;
  - model-based aspect evolution;
  - model weaving: from abstract to low-level;
  - model engineering tools for supporting aspect-oriented techniques;
  - model-based aspect interference and composition management.
