Submission Guidelines

Both research papers, experience papers and tool presentations are welcome. Papers describing novel applications and making significant research contributions are of particular interest. Contributions can be:

Long papers (max. 8 pages): These contributions should address novel research ideas, challenging problems, or practical contributions in the domain of model-driven software evolution.

Short papers (max. 4 pages):

  • industrial feedback: industrial participants may contribute with experience or case studies about managing or putting into practice model-driven software evolution solutions in an industrial setting;
  • position papers: young researchers may submit extended abstracts about their work in progress in the context of model-driven software evolution;

  • visionary papers: these contributions take a visionary stance to the field describing long term ambitions, visionary technological advancements, paradigmatic changes and research agenda's. Note that the ideas presented must be clearly positioned, adequately thought out, and sufficiently documented;
  • tool presentations: these submissions present (experience with) tools (which may be either research prototypes or commercial tools) that are fully/partially dedicated to supporting the evolution issues encountered in model based development.

Special Issue

An extension of the best papers will be invited for a special issue on the Journal of Systems and Software – Elsevier.

Submission Process

Each submitted paper will undergo a formal peer review process by at least 3 members of the Program Committee. The papers should include the authors’ names, affiliations and contact details. 

Con­tri­bu­tions should be up­load­ed using EasyChar

Accepted papers will be published in CEUR, which is indexed by DBLP. Each workshop will have its own volume, with the common ISSN of the CEUR series. We will consider to have a special issue on the topic on a major journal with an extension of the best accepted papers. Contributions should represent original and previously unpublished ideas that are currently not under review in any conference or journal. Papers must be in the Springer LNCS format.

At least one au­thor of each ac­cept­ed paper must reg­is­ter and attend the work­shop.
