** Theme and Goals **

Models have long been used in the development of complex systems. Their

use is becoming more prevalent in the software development domain as

modeling techniques and tools mature. Despite this, there are many

challenging issues that the modeling research community must address if

software modeling practices are to become mainstream. Furthermore

software and systems become more intertwined and the modeling techniques

used for systems engineering need to be harmonized with software models.

The purpose of this 2-day workshop is to promote the use of models in

the engineering of software systems. In particular, we are interested in

the exchange of innovative technical ideas and experiences related to

modeling. Engineers have used models to effectively manage complexity

for centuries, and there is a growing body of work on the use of models

to manage inherent problem and solution complexity in software

development. The use of software models will become more prevalent as

methodologies and tools that manipulate models at various levels of

abstraction become available.

Workshop activities will focus on analyzing successful applications of

software-modeling techniques to gain insights into challenging modeling

problems, including: (1) identifying, describing, and using appropriate

abstractions, (2) supporting incremental, iterative development through

the use of appropriate model composition, transformation and other model

manipulation operators, and (3) automated analysis of possibly large,

possibly incomplete models to determine the presence or absence of

desired and undesired properties. Topics of interest include:

– Modeling notations and tools

– Metamodeling

– Abstractions and modeling methodologies

– Model-based analysis and synthesis

– Model transformation and composition

– Model evaluation

– Model management

– Extracting models from software artifacts

– Models for learning machines

– Models of big and smart data

– Use of models for downstream activities

– Modeling the system environment

– Modeling cyber-physical systems

– Models at runtime (e.g., for software adaptation)

– Models for “what-if?\’\’ analysis and prognostics

– Empirical studies

– Domain-specific modeling

– management using models

– Model reuse

– Further uses of modeling

*** Submission Details ***

Prospective participants are invited to submit a 5-7 page position or

technical paper. Workshop papers must follow the ICSE 2017 Format and

Submission Guideline. All submissions will be reviewed by members of the

program committee and the organizing committee for quality and

relevance. Accepted papers will become part of the workshop proceedings.

EasyChair will be used to manage the submission review process. Paper

can be submitted via Easy Chair using the following link:


The official publication date of the workshop proceedings is the date

the proceedings are made available in the IEEE Digital Library. This

date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of ICSE 2017. The

official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings

related to published work.
