    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
engineering 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 software 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

    - 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 cases)
    - 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
    2 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 priorities.

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
          sessions, 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 member 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 relevance. Accepted papers will become part of
the workshop proceedings. Submit a paper in PDF format to
