MDEML: Model-Driven Engineering and Modeling Languages

August 26-28, 2020


Important Dates


- Abstract submission: March 2, 2020

- Paper submission: March 16, 2020

- Notification of accepted papers: May 5, 2020

- Camera-ready paper due: June 5, 2020




Model-driven engineering (MDE) is a paradigm to effectively tame complexity, automate engineering tasks, and support human communication. General-purpose and domain-specific modeling languages allow different stakeholders to express their concerns with more human-oriented concepts than it would be possible with traditional (machine-oriented) programming languages. The MDEML track aims at gathering ideas, challenges, and solutions related to MDE and modeling languages.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

- Design and engineering of modeling languages (components, modules, aspects, ...)

- Foundations of modeling language design, reuse, and evolution

- Metamodeling and grammar-based language engineering

- Semantics of modeling languages

- Reuse and composition of modeling language specifications

- Model transformation languages and model transformations

- Integration of heterogeneous modeling language (e.g., from different domains)

- Transformations across modeling languages (e.g., for interoperability, analysis, ...)

- Model-driven modernization of modeling languages

- Blended concrete syntaxes for modeling languages

- Generation of language infrastructures (e.g., concrete syntaxes, editors, collaboration and management tools, …)

- Model-driven language workbenches

- Tools on MDE and modeling languages

- Empirical studies on MDE and modeling languages

- Comparison of different model-driven language engineering technologies

- New modeling languages in emerging domains such as industry 4.0, smart cities, smart energy networks, internet of things (IoT), cyber-physical systems (CPS), systems engineering etc.

- Industrial experience reports on MDE and modeling languages


Submission Guidelines


SEAA 2020 encourages the submission of full research papers (maximum 8 pages), short papers and tool demo papers (maximum 4 pages), and posters. Papers must contain original unpublished work, describe significant novel contributions, and provide evidence on the validation of results. In particular, reports on industrial applications are welcome.

Conference Publishing Services (CPS) will publish accepted papers in the conference proceedings and the proceedings will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital library and indexing services. A special issue of a journal is planned to which extended version of best papers will be invited.
