Modeling for software and systems engineering has gained rapid popularity and become an industrially accepted best practice in many application domains. The objective of the Model-driven Engineering In Practice (MEIP) track (part of Models 2014) is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss innovations and solutions to concrete software modeling problems. MEIP provides a unique forum for exchanging new ideas, fostering long- term innovations, networking and forging long-term collaborations for addressing the most interesting and realistic software modeling research directions. MEIP will gather highly-qualified industrial and research participants that are eager to communicate and share common interests in model-driven engineering. The technical program of the track will be composed of invited speeches and industry- strength paper presentations with high take-away value for practitioners in model-driven engineering. We invite authors to submit original experience reports and case studies: Each paper should provide clear take-away value by describing the context of a problem of practical, industrial importance and application. The paper should discuss why the solution of the problem is innovative, effective, or efficient and what likely industrial impact it has or will have; it should provide a concise explanation of the approach, techniques, and methodologies employed, and explain the best practices that emerged, tools developed, and/or software processes involved. Furthermore, papers should describe broader applicability; overall assessment of benefits, risks and mitigations, and other lessons learned. Experience reports and case studies may be up to fifteen pages in length and will appear in the Models proceedings (more below). Topics of interest Experience reports and case studies papers are sought on any topic of modeling for software and systems engineering, including, but not limited to: Development, use, and evolution of domain-specific modeling languages Assessment of modeling languages, techniques and tools Definition, usage, and analysis of model transformations and generative approaches Integration of modeling languages and tools (hybrid multi-modeling approaches) Quality assurance (analysis, testing, verification) for models and model transformations Development of systems engineering and modeling-in-the-large concepts Modeling with, and for, new and emerging systems and paradigms such as cyber-physical systems, cloud computing, data analytics, systems engineering, social media, devices and services, mobile applications, open source software Modeling for new development challenges such as security, interoperability, energy efficiency Submission Papers should be submitted through the CyberChair system. Each paper must be in PDF format, be written in English, and conform to the Springer LNCS formatting guidelines. Submissions must be written exclusively in English, including the title of the submission, the name and affiliation of each author, an up to 150-words abstract, and up to 8 keywords. The length of the paper is limited to 15 pages plus at most two pages for references. Papers that are over the page limit or violate the LNCS formatting instructions will be automatically rejected without further review. Papers submitted to MODELS 2014 must be original, and will be reviewed under the assumption that they do not contain plagiarized material, have not been published nor submitted for review elsewhere while under consideration for MODELS 2014. MODELS 2014 follows the IEEE policies for cases of double submission and plagiarism. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by Springer in the LNCS series. Authors of best papers from the conference will be invited to revise and submit extended versions of their papers for the Journal on Software and Systems Modeling (SoSYM), Springer Press. Evaluation The evaluation process proceeds as follows: 1. First review period: Each paper will be reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee, based on its originality, importance of contribution, soundness, evaluation, quality of presentation and appropriate comparison to related work. 2. Author response period: After the reviews have been released, authors have the opportunity to provide a 500 word response which will be taken into account during the PC meeting. This response should focus on clarifying, correcting or answering questions asked by the reviewers. 3. Discussion of initial submissions: Taking the author response into account, a member of the Program Board will work with the Program Committee to reach a decision. Three outcomes are possible: accept, reject, or invitation to resubmit. Candidates for revision and resubmission are papers that might be worthy of acceptance, if certain revisions are made. 4. Notification for all authors: The outcome of the discussion period is made available. 5. Resubmission: Authors of papers invited for resubmission submit their revised paper. Important Dates (all 2014) Please note that: Abstract submission is mandatory. All deadlines are hard. No extensions will be allowed. All dates are according to time zone “Anywhere on Earth”, i.e. UTC-12.
