Model-driven engineering (MDE) and modeling in general has matured substantially over the past decade and is increasingly finding its way into industrial practice. As a consequence, it is now more important than ever to demonstrate the value of modeling and MDE through research prototypes as well as polished tools covering a broad variety of modeling-related activities.Therefore, MODELS 2014 features a track of tool demonstration sessions, in parallel with other conference sessions, to serve as a channel for recognizing and appreciating teams building tools and also a venue for sharing experience of building and applying tools both in academia and industry. This track will constitute the premier venue for researchers and practitioners to showcase their projects and tools in areas that are relevant to the MODELS community. We encourage submissions on tools that are either early research prototypes or mature tools not yet been commercialized. In addition, we are also interested in innovative uses of existing tools and tool chains from industrial practice.Demonstrations will be selected on the basis of technical merit, novelty, relevance to the MODELS community, etc. The presentation should be focused on technical content and given by technical members of the team.Demonstrations will be allocated slots of 30 minutes including time for a brief overview presentation, the actual demonstration, and questions / discussions. Demonstrators will also be asked to participate in a "demo madness" session at the beginning of the conference where they will be given two minutes to promote their demonstration to all MODELS attendants.We encourage submission of demonstrations to accompany papers submitted to or accepted into the main conference program. However, we also strongly encourage demonstration submissions that describe novel work that may not be presented at other sessions of MODELS 2014.Topics of interest The tool demonstration track of MODELS 2014 welcomes any submission within the scope of the topics of interest of the main conference, including (but not limited to) modeling tools supporting one or more model-based activities in different phases of software/system development lifecycles, domain specific language modeling environment, automated solutions for integrating different modeling tools. Submission DetailsA submission should highlight at least the following aspects: •The envisioned users•The MDE and modeling challenge it proposes to address•The methodology it implies for its users•The results of validation studies already conducted for mature tools, or the design of planned studies for early prototypesA submission will be evaluated by a committee of experts from academia and industry, based on the following selection criteria:•Relevance to the conference•Usefulness to researchers and practitioners•Quality of the submission•Quality of the demonstrationProposed contributions should be submitted through EasyChair before the deadline. Each submission should contain:•A 3-5 page PDF formatted to the Springer LNCS standard describing the tool/system to be demonstrated. Accepted demonstrations will be published in the CEUR as a separate volume and indexed by DBLP. Details about the required submission format can be found here•A link to a YouTube video (between three to five minutes long) giving a concise version of the demonstration. This part of the submission will be used to judge feasibility of presentation. The link should be provided in the abstract of the submitted PDF, and should also be provided in the abstract metadata within EasyChair•Possibly a poster that will be make public all along the conferenceImportant Dates (all 2014)Best Demonstration Award This year, we will give the Best Demonstration Award to best demonstrators to recognize their excellence and contribution to the track, based on evaluation results of selection committee members attending the conference.Demonstration Organization and Contact InformationThe Demonstration Chairs are:•Benoit Combemale, University of Rennes 1 and Research Scientist at Inria, France•Tao Yue, Simula Research Laboratory, NorwayThey can be contacted here.The names of the Demonstrations Selection Committee members can be found on the Committees Web Page.
