Models and Evolution Workshop
Co-located with 22nd International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems (MODELS)Submission Details Call for Paper
The 13th Workshop on Models and Evolution (ME) 2019 is a satellite event at ACM/IEEE 22nd International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems - MODELS
Software artefacts constantly increase in complexity, variety and novelty. Environment and business constraints, user requirements and new insights put additional pressure on their adaptability, availability, reliability and quality: they continuously need to be up to date. But evolution issues are critical, complex and costly to manage. They concern requirements, architecture, design, source code, documentation, integration or deployment. They also typically affect various kinds of models (data, behavioural, domain, source code or goal models). Addressing and managing these varieties of changes is essential. Models and meta-models, the cornerstone of complex software systems’ abstractions, represent a powerful mean for facing software evolution challenges by ensuring a more abstract and expressive modeling of software evolution. They can help and guide software evolution and can enforce and reduce critical risks and important involved resources. The workshop puts the focus on Models and Evolution by considering two main sides: (1) Managing software evolution needs by relying on the high-level abstraction power of models and meta-models. (2) Managing model and metamodel evolution needs and the co-evolution of all related software artefacts by putting attention to their increasing evolution issues as they become primary artefacts.
A selection of best papers of ME2018-2019 will be invited to submit extended versions for tentative publication in a Special Issue of JOT, the Journal of Object Technology. The call (hybrid) will also be open to submissions by anyone interested in the topic.

The Workshop on Models and Evolution is a satellite event of MODELS 2019. MODELS, the ACM/IEEE 22th International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems, is the premier conference series for model-driven software and systems engineering, and is organized with support of ACM SIGSOFT and IEEE TCSE. Since 1998, MODELS has covered all aspects of modeling, from languages and methods, to tools and applications. Attendees of MODELS come from diverse backgrounds, including researchers, academics, engineers and industrial professionals. MODELS 2019 is a forum for participants to exchange cutting-edge research results and innovative practical experiences around modeling and model-driven software and systems. This year’s edition will provide an opportunity for the modeling community to further advance the foundations of modeling, and come up with innovative applications of modeling in emerging areas of cyber-physical systems, embedded systems, socio-technical systems, cloud computing, big data, security, open source, and sustainability. We invite you to join us at MODELS 2019, in Munich, Germany 15-20 September 2019, and to help shape the modelling methods and technologies of the future!
