15th International Workshop on Aspect-Oriented Modeling
held in conjunction with MoDELS'10
Oslo, Norway, October 4, 2010

Call for Papers


Workshop Description
Aspect-orientation is a rapidly advancing technology. During the recent
years, researchers have introduced a variety of new aspect-oriented
concepts and mechanisms. However, they also have pointed out various
problematic issues of aspect-oriented software development that still
need to be solved. Research in aspect-oriented modeling has the
potential to help find solutions for such problems. Aspect-oriented
models may help developers to encapsulate crosscutting concerns at the
modeling level, and they may help to estimate the consequences of a
design decision. As a result, aspect-oriented models have the potential
to assist developers in constructing and analyzing an aspect-oriented
software system.

The Aspect-Oriented Modeling (AOM) Workshop aims to bring together
researchers and practitioners from two communities: aspect-oriented
software development (AOSD) and model-driven engineering. The workshop
provides a forum for presenting new ideas and discussing the state of
research and practice in modeling crosscutting concerns at different
levels of abstraction. The goals of the workshop are to identify and
discuss the benefits that models can bring to aspect-oriented software
development in order to analyze the relationships between crosscutting
concerns and other software artifacts. Additionally, the workshop is a
forum to identify and discuss the impacts of aspect-oriented
technologies on model-based engineering in order to provide modelers
with 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
- modeling essential characteristics of crosscutting concerns;
- domain-specific aspect models;
- aspects and UML;
- aspects applied to domain-specific models (other than UML);
- verification and validation of aspect models;
- detection of aspect interactions and aspect interference;
- visualizations of aspects and visual notations for aspect models;

AOSD Method and Tool Support
- modeling of aspects at different stages of software development
  (requirements engineering, sw architecture, design, implementation);
- aspect-oriented and model-based software development methods;
- tool support for modeling aspects;
- generation of software artifacts (e.g., program code, test cases,
  etc.) from aspect models;

Model-Based AOSD
- model-based join points and model-based join point models;
- weaving and composition of aspect models;
- model-based tracing: from abstract to low-level aspects;
- model-based aspect interference and model composition management;

Experience Reports and Evaluation
- experience reports of applying AOM approaches to case studies;
- empirical evaluation of AOM approaches;

Beyond Aspects
- new ways to separate concerns in models;
- new ways to software composition in models;
