[PVS] [models08] MODELS 2008 First call for contributions

		   MODELS 2008 -- First Call for Contributions
		    ACM/IEEE 11th International Conference on
		  Model-Driven Engineering Languages and Systems
			  September 28 - October 3, 2008
			       Toulouse, France
  After 10 years of conferences, the MODELS / UML series of conferences will
  celebrate this succesful series with a number of special events.
  The past decade has witnessed an explosion of interest in advanced
  techniques for expressing design intent at a higher level of abstraction
  than third-generation programming languages and for keeping abstract models
  complex software systems in sync with the underlying code. Domain-specific 
  modeling languages, model-driven engineering, model transformations, and 
  standardization of modeling languages are among the more significant emerging

  trends. MODELS (formerly the UML series of conferences) is the premier
  in model-driven approaches to software development, bringing together
  practitioners and researchers to present and discuss both practical 
  experience and innovative techniques.
  MODELS’08 will be held in Toulouse, France. Toulouse is the 4th town in
  by size of population, and the 2nd town in France by number of students
(115000 students, 
  10000 researchers). Toulouse also hosts major companies that 
  develop embedded software and large software systems. Located at 110km from 
  Pyrenean mountains, 150km from the Mediterranean sea, and 250km from the
  Ocean, it is a very convenient and beautiful location.
  Topics of interest
  Scientific papers: We invite scientific research papers describing innovative
  research on model-driven engineering and other aspects of modeling in the
  development process. Scientific research papers also include well-designed 
  empirical studies, innovative automation solutions, and tool architectures.
  Experience papers: We invite experience papers that focus on reporting
  project experience with model-driven engineering. These papers should
  describe the project context, detail practical lessons learned, and provide
  insight about how model-driven approaches and technologies can be improved
  for application in an industrial context.
  In addition to scientific and experience reports, the conference
  will host several exciting satellite events. Following the tradition
  of previous editions, the satellite events will include workshops,
  tutorials, poster sessions, a doctoral symposium, and an educator's
  symposium. In addition to these, MODELS 2008 will host  a technological
  track, and for the first time, a research projects symposium.
  The technological track aims to build bridges between academia
  and industry by presenting tools commonly used in industrial
  projects, illustrative case studies and industry best practices, with a
  strong focus on the conference hot topics.

  The research project symposium aims to bring together researchers
  from academia and industry, and representatives of funding agencies in
  order to create a forum for dialog on stakeholders' interests, policies,
  and trends in the development of research projects, focusing on areas
  of interest to the MODELS community.

  The conference will include papers and presentations on many of the 
  following topics:
  - Model-driven engineering methodologies, approaches, languages and 
  - Domain-specific modeling languages
  - Empirical studies of modeling and model-driven engineering
  - Programming language and metaprogramming support for linking models
    to code
  - Models in the context of software evolution
  - Model evaluation, formal or heuristic
  - Model transformations
  - Model consistency management
  - Metamodeling
  - Modeling languages and tools
  - Semantics of modeling languages
  - Model-driven testing
  - Model quality
  - Modeling and analysis of real-time, embedded, and distributed systems
  - Model-driven adaptive systems development

  Submission guidelines are available on the website. 

  Papers must be no longer than 15 pages in length (including references, 
  appendices etc.) and must conform to the Springer LNCS formatting guidelines:
  (see conference website for more information). Papers will undergo a thorough

  process of review by a program committee comprising leading experts

  be rejected without review. Scientific proceedings will be published 
  by Springer in the LNCS series. 

  All papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted simultaneously 
  for publication elsewhere. 

  Authors of best papers from the conference will be invited to 
  revise and submit extended versions of their papers for 
  publication consideration in a special issue of the Journal
  on Software and Systems Modeling (Springer).
