MODELS is the premier conference series for model-based software and systems engineering which since 1998 has been covering all aspects of modeling, from languages and methods to tools and applications. MODELS 2015 challenges the modeling community to promote the magic of modeling by solidifying and extending the foundations and successful applications of modeling in areas such as business information and embedded systems, but also by exploring the use of modeling for new and emerging systems, paradigms, and challenges including cyber-physical systems, cloud computing, services, social media, big data, security, and open source. We invite you to join us in Ottawa and to help shape the modelling methods and technologies of the future!
We invite authors to submit high quality contributions describing significant, original, and unpublished results in the following categories:
We invite authors to submit original experience reports and case studies. Each paper should provide clear take-away value by describing the context of a problem of practical, industrial importance and application. The paper should discuss why the solution of the problem is innovative, effective, or efficient and what likely industrial impact it has or will have; it should provide a concise explanation of the approach, techniques, and methodologies employed, and explain the best practices that emerged, tools developed, and/or software processes involved.
MoDELS 15 solicits "Modeling Pearls" as a separate track (they were introduced in MoDEL 14 in the foundations track).
Modeling Pearls are polished, elegant, instructive, and insightful applications of modeling techniques or approaches. Modeling pearls include demonstration case studies that illustrate good modeling practices and techniques, examples of bad modeling practices that exemplify the problems that can occur if they are not detected and rectified (e.g., modeling examples that show the problems that occur when models use inappropriate abstractions), and models used in the classroom or paper to illustrate modeling concepts and practices. Submissions in this category need not report original research results. Authors must make fully documented models and other artifacts used in their papers accessible to reviewers by uploading them to the Repository for Model-Driven Development (ReMoDD). Artifacts associated with accepted papers in this category are publicly available via ReMoDD at http://www.remodd.org/MODELS2015ModelingPearlsArtifactSubmissionInformation.
Submissions are sought on any topic of modeling for software and systems engineering, including, but not limited to:
Papers must be submitted electronically through the Models 2015 submission site:
All submissions must come in PDF format. New is that now all submissions must conform to the IEEE Formating Guidelines!
Technical Research/Foundations Papers, MDE in practice papers, and Modeling Pearl papers must not exceed 10 pages (including figures, appendices and references). New Ideas Papers must not exceed 6 pages (including figures, appendices and references). Submissions that do not adhere to these limits or that violate the formatting guidelines will be desk-rejected without review. All submissions must be in English.
Submissions must adhere to the IEEE formatting instructions:
All papers that conform to submission guidelines will be peer-reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee on the basis of originality, soundness, relevance, importance of contribution, evaluation, quality of presentation and appropriate comparison to related work. Authors will have the possibility to clarify some of the questions arisen by PC members in their reviews. This response will be taken into account in the final decision phase. All the discussion process will be monitored by one or two Program Board members assigned to each paper.
Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings published by IEEE. Authors of best papers from the conference will be invited to revise and submit extended versions of the papers for publication in the Journal of Software and Systems Modeling
