  Workshop on Modeling in Software Engineering @ ICSE 2007 (MISE 2007)
                                                Minneapolis, USA
                                                  May 19-20, 2007


Workshop Overview

The purpose of this workshop is to promote the use of models in the
of software systems. In particular, we are interested in the exchange of
innovative technical ideas and experiences related to modeling.
Engineers have
used models to effectively manage complexity for centuries, and there is a
growing body of work on the use of models to manage inherent problem and
solution complexity in software development. The use of software models will
become more prevalent as methodologies and tools that manipulate models at
various levels of abstraction become available.

This workshop will provide a forum for discussing the challenges
associated with
modeling software and with incorporating modeling practices into the
development process. We are interested in model-related research topics
at all
levels of the software development, including use of models during software
execution. A list of topics includes:

- Modeling notations and tools
- Modeling of non-functional properties
- Metamodeling
- Modeling patterns and strategies
- Model transformations
- Model evaluation
- Model traceability and management
- Domain specific modeling
- Extracting models from implementation artifacts (e.g., for program
    understanding or verification)
- Use of models to support downstream activities (e.g., to generate test
- Use of models at runtime (e.g., to support dynamic adaptation)
- Empirical studies

Important Dates

20 January, 2007 Submission of workshop papers
20 February, 2007 Notification of acceptance
5 March, 2007 Camera-ready papers due

Workshop format

The workshop will be highly interactive and focused on the sharing of
ideas and
on progressing towards a shared vision of research goals. The
discussions will
be carried out by raising and debating open questions and research
Depending on the number of accepted papers, the workshop will follow one
of two
possible formats:
(1) Papers are presented during the morning sessions and the afternoon
        and are used to suggest 2-3 working groups on topics of mutual interest.
        Working-group discussions are followed by a plenary session where a
        of each group presents conclusions.
(2) Each session ends with a 30 minute discussion.

Submission guidelines

Although the workshop is open to all, prospective participants are
invited to
submit a 4-6 page position paper. All submissions will be reviewed by
members of
the program committee and the organizing committee for quality and
Accepted papers will become part of the workshop proceedings. Submit a
paper in
PDF format to
