Presentation & objective

MoDSE is a workshop that will be held in conjunction with CSMR 2007. The main objective of this workshop is to explore how can model-driven engineering (MDE) enforce and enhance software evolution. Software evolution is an important and inevitable research area. It increases in complexity and needs to be well driven. Since MDE leans on the systematic use of models as artefacts all along the software lifecycle, it seems obvious to use it to manage the evolution of any software.

                                                                       

The objective is to have the possibility to present current research works and to exchange, discuss and debate about challenges, needs, proposed approaches and innovative solutions around the Model-Driven Software Evolution. It is important to bring together the two communities (MDE and Software Evolution) in order to discuss whether and how research and experience can be exchanged between them.

 

       Call for papers

Papers from academia and industry are solicited about important problems, techniques and results related to research and practice within the domain of model-driven software evolution. The main topics of this workshop are, but not limited to:

ˇ        Specification of models, metamodels and languages for specifying software evolution: definition and features.

ˇ        Transformation of models for software evolution: restructuring and refactoring, migration, translation...

ˇ        Dynamic and static evolutions.

ˇ        Evolution and co-evolution of models.

ˇ        Verification, validation and testing of evolving models

ˇ        Transformation of models for aims of evolution

ˇ        Used paradigms (objects, components, aspects, formal languages ...)

ˇ        Consistency maintenance, inconsistency management, compliance checking, synchronization, verification, validation and testing of evolving models

ˇ        Managerial aspects and process models for software evolution

ˇ        Teaching model-driven software evolution

ˇ        Industrial needs and experiences.

 

The workshop will be held on the day before the conference that is the 20th of March. The papers should be from 8 to 10 pages double column IEEE format. They will be printed in a small proceedings band with cover.

Support

The workshop is supported by:

- the ERCIM Working Group on Software Evolution, which is a community of researchers that aim to study formalisms, languages, tools and techniques to support software engineers in the evolution of large and complex software systems.

- RIMEL, the French working group on software evolution and maintenance.
