             The 8th OOPSLA Workshop on Domain-Specific Modeling


                             October 19-20, 2008

                               Nashville, USA





Call for Papers:


Domain-Specific Modeling raises the level of abstraction beyond programming

by specifying the solution directly using domain concepts. In many cases,

final products can be generated automatically from these high-level
specifications. This automation is possible because both the language and
generators need fit the requirements of only one company and domain. 


Industrial experiences of DSM consistently show it to be 5-10 times faster

than current practices, including current UML-based implementations of MDA.

More investigation is still needed in order to advance the acceptance and

viability of Domain-Specific Modeling. This workshop welcomes three types

of submissions:


1) Full papers describing ideas on either a practical or theoretical level.

Full papers should emphasize what is new and significant about the chosen

approach and compare it to other research work in the field. The maximum

length of a full paper is 4000 words.


2) Position papers describing work in progress or an author’s position
regarding current DSM practice. The maximum length of a position paper is
2000 words.


3) DSM demonstrations describing a particular language, generator, or tool

for a particular domain. The maximum length of a demo paper is 2000

words. During the workshop, the DSM solution presented in the paper can
be demonstrated to the participants.


Some suggested topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

  - Tools for supporting domain-specific modeling (DSM)

  - Metamodeling frameworks and languages

  - Comparison and analysis of model-driven development approaches

  - Principles for identifying constructs for DSM languages

  - Industry/academic experience reports describing success/failure in

    using Domain-Specific Modeling

  - Novel approaches for code generation from domain-specific models

  - Approaches to implement Domain-Specific Modeling languages

  - Issues of support/maintenance of models and evolution of a DSM

    language in accordance with the representative domain

  - Version control techniques for DSMs

  - Specific domains where this technology can be most productive in

    the future (e.g., embedded systems, product family domains, or

    systems with multiple implementation platforms)

  - Techniques for supporting (meta)model interchange between tools

  - Relationships between ontologies and metamodels
