Third Workshop on Process-based approaches for Model-Driven Engineering - PMDE'2013
July 1 July 2, 2013, Montpellier, France
(merged with MBSDPTI'2013)
@ ECMFA 2013 Conference, July 1-5, 2013, Montpellier, France
Submission deadline extended to April 29, 2013

PMDE goals

Building complex and trustworthy software systems in the shortest time-to-market remains the challenging objective that competitive companies are facing constantly. A more challenging objective for these companies is to be able to formalize their development processes in order to analyze them, to simulate and execute them, and to reason about their possible improvement. In the last decade, the Model-Driven Engineering approach has proven its effectiveness for the specification and realization of large and complex systems. However its use in the field of process modeling and execution is still not fully exploited.

The PMDE Workshop aims to gather researchers and industrial practitioners working in the field of Process Engineering (process modelling, process simulation, process metrics, process enactment, etc.) and using Model-Based Engineering techniques.

Topics of interest

The PMDE workshop will invite papers presenting research results or work-in-progress in all areas of process-based approaches for model-driven engineering, including:
- Modelling software and systems processes for model-driven engineering
- Domain-Specific Languages (DSL) for modelling software and systems processes
- Transformation-based process modelling: structural and behavioural aspects
- MDE Process patterns: modelling and application
- MDE Process patterns for reuse: definition, search methods, application of patterns
- Process models refactoring and composition
- Process lines and MDE
- Verification of process models
- MDE process enactment and simulation
- MDE Process resource management
- Process metrics for model-driven engineering
- Management of distributed MDE processes
- MDE process evolution: static evolution, process models refactoring, dynamic process evolution, process deviations management
- Business process modelling
- Process orchestration
- Workflow
- Process-centred MDE tools
Description of case studies based on MDE processes, experimentations on real projects, empirical studie
