Conference Tracks / Special Sessions
The track Model-based development, Components and Services (MOCS) will be part of SEAA 2017. Two of the major current trends in software engineering are: the increasing emphasis on model-driven engineering, and the increasingly central role of component-based and service-based paradigms in tackling scale and complexity in the development of ever larger and more complex software systems. Whereas model-based development is essentially top-down, component- and service-based development is essentially bottom-up. To combine these paradigms require new methods and tools. The main goal of this track is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners on model-based development, component-based and service-based software engineering, where they can meet, discuss, exchange and disseminate ideas, problems and results, identify key issues and explore possible solutions and future work.
We co-organized and participated to the workshop "MDE in Industry 4.0" with three other universities: RWTH Aachen, University of Rennes and Ecole des Mines de Nantes. Through presentations and discussions, the goal of this workshop was to discuss on the notion of Industry 4.0 (i.e., next-generation factories and production systems), and what it means for the field of model driven engineering.
The 1st International Workshop on Model Debugging in MDE (MDEbug) will also be co-located with the MODELS 2017 conference during the week Sept 17-22, 2017. Locating the source of an observable defect is still nowadays one of the main activities of software engineers and modelers. Implementing debugging tools is complicated due to the wide variety of models and modelling languages used throughout system development. This workshop aims to bring together researchers wanting to contribute to the emerging field of debugging in model-driven engineering by discussing new ideas and compiling a research agenda.
The 4th International Workshop on Multi-Level Modelling (MULTI) will also be co-located with the MODELS 2017 conference during the week Sept 17-22, 2017. As interest in multi-level modelling grows, and the range of multi-level modelling tools expands, there is growing interest in consolidating the key principles of the paradigm and clarifying the essential differences between heterogeneous approaches. The goal of MULTI 2017 is to address the multiple challenges in thies topic and continue the community building established in the previous workshops. In particular, the goal is to encourage the community to delineate different approaches to multi-level modelling and define objective ways to evaluate their respective strengths/weaknesses.
