Workshop on Methodical Development of Modeling Tools (MeDMoT'13)
on the 17th IEEE International Enterprise Computing Conference EDOC 2013
2013-04-15 2013-04-22 (extended)
Having modeling tools
available is a central assumption made in modeling research. Software
tools for modeling are a prerequisite for any practical application
of modeling methods, and research prototypes of model editors are
required for developing new modeling languages and methods. It it
thus desirable to efficiently guide the development of modeling tools
and seamlessly align their design with the conceptualization of
modeling languages and their application.
The workshop focuses on procedures and
architectural principles related to the creation of software for
presenting, editing, transforming, or analyzing models. This covers
special constellations related to the use of models and modeling
languages, for example, the ability to automatically derive model
editor functionality from formal specifications of modeling languages
(meta-models, grammars, etc.). In addition, design principles and
implementation options for requirements towards modeling tools, such
as wizard support for interactive modeling, or alternative ways to
display graphical models, are discussed. All kinds of models are
included in this discussion, either domain-specific or
general-purpose models, as well as graphical and textual models with
their related software tooling support. Intended audience are
scientists and practitioners, who apply modeling techniques and
model-driven procedures, and develop their own modeling tools.
Submissions may document research work on newly
created modeling tools, either for prototype or production purposes,
as well as work on methodology and architecture of modeling tool
development. This may cover model editor software in a narrow sense,
as well as any approach for handling, transforming or analyzing
models in a wider sense.
Possible topics for submissions are:
- How can formal language descriptions, e. g. meta-models or language grammars, be consulted for partially or fully automatizing the creation of modeling tools?
- How can process models of modeling activities be be made a basis for innovative modeling tool development?
- Which methodical implications are bound to the use of code generation approaches to create tooling support, and how do they compare to runtime interpreter solutions?
- How can versioning conflicts be handled or avoided during parallel development of modeling languages, modeling tools, and existing model instances?
- Which role do model editors play as end-user interfaces to control applications ("models at runtime")? To what extent do "models at runtime" blur the border between developing modeling tools and other types of applications?
Contributions to related topics are also welcome.
