by Joanne Atlee, May 27, 2022

C A L L F O R P A P E R S
FOURTH WORKSHOP ON MODELING IN AUTOMOTIVE SYSTEM AND
SOFTWARE ENGINEERING WORKSHOP (MASE'22)
https://www.es.mdh.se/mase2022/
Montreal, Canada
October 23, 24, or 25, 2022
Co-located with MODELS'22

BACKGROUND AND MOTIVATION

Automotive software was born less than 40 years ago. Within just

40 years, the significance, size, and development costs of

automotive software has grown to staggering levels. The automotive

industry is increasingly relying on and becoming a driver of

advances in system and software development and engineering

methods, techniques and tools to deal with the many unique

challenges the automotive industry faces. Significant advances

have been made dealing with many of these challenges involving,

for instance, variability modeling and software product lines,

standardisation, model-based development, cyber-physical systems,

and systems engineering. However, the remaining challenges are

compounded by future trends. System and software complexities

continue to grow and the industry is being forced to incorporate

disruptive technology such as electrification, machine learning,

autonomous vehicles and, in the near future, support for

vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications

and collaborations. 

OBJECTIVES

A central objective of the workshop is to provide a forum for

practitioners and researchers from industry and academia in which

novel, innovative, model-based solutions to current and future

challenges in automotive system and software development can be

presented and discussed. Another important objective is the

identification of new research problems arising from current

trends. 

TOPICS OF INTEREST

MASE 2022 encourages submissions presenting novel and insightful

descriptions of applications of modeling techniques to problems

arising in the context of automotive system and software

engineering. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Advanced Driver Assist Systems and Autonomous Driving

- Emerging technologies such as big data, mobile apps,

  social media, open source software, and vehicle networks

- Architectures and component-based development and relevant

  technologies such as AUTOSAR, EAST-ADL, and UML

- Real-time systems and support for multi-core, mixed

  criticality and IP, and dynamic scheduling

- Quality assurance and support for different quality

  attributes such as functional and non-functional correctness,

  interoperability, fault-tolerance, maintainability, and reusability

- Safety and security and support for safety standards such as

  ISO 26262

- Requirements and traceability

- Variability and configuration management

- Synthesis, transformation, iterative development, integration,

  and code generation

- Development processes and support for globally distributed

  development
