The MODELS series of conferences is the premier venue for the exchange of innovative ideas and experiences relating to model-driven approaches in the development of software-based systems. Topics covered by the conference include domain-specific modeling languages, model-driven development and engineering, model transformations (in all its forms including both M2M and M2C), verification and validation and real-time among many other topics of interest (see the Call for Technical Papers "Topics" area for a full list). Following the tradition of previous conferences, MODELS 2014 will host a number of tutorials during the two days before the main conference. The tutorials will provide intensive courses on topics ranging from thoughts on the past, current, or future development of the modeling discipline to presentations and/or demonstrations of new tools and technologies. A slot in the Tutorial track will normally be 3 hours (half-day).  


Tutorials should target an audience of practitioners, researchers (academic and industrial), and developers familiar with and already working with software modeling techniques. The target audience typically has a strong interest in Model-Driven Engineering (MDE), including work on improving and evolving modeling languages (such as UML or DSLs), developing sophisticated MDE tool support, and using MDE to develop/reverse/maintain complex systems. Potential attendees may also be interested in how modeling has been applied effectively in specialized domains (e.g., in the automotive industry), and in learning about successful use of MDE methods in real-world applications. A tutorial should be relevant to a typical MODELS participant, but it is not required to have the same level of technical originality as a scientific paper in the main conference. At MODELS, all tutorials are open to all registrants for satellite events (workshops, symposia, etc).


The following themes are examples of what is considered relevant for tutorials: Modeling techniques for specific domains Modeling methodologies and model-oriented processes Presentation of new tools or new versions of old tools (e.g. Modeling workbenches, Model transformation languages, Model Verification tools) Dissemination of project results from industry-related projects Teaching of Model-Driven software development Research methods in MD* Modeling for re-engineering and legacy evolution Empirical experiences in the context of modeling Practical experiences of general interest General topics of interest to young researchers, like presentation skills, or research methodologies Proposal Contents The submission should include the following information; in a document following the Springer LNCS formatting guidelines:  The presenter(s) - name, affiliation, contact information, and short bio Title Abstract (max 200 words) Keywords Proposed length of the lecture (usually 3 hours, justify if you aim for a different length) Level of the tutorial: beginner/introduction or advanced Target audience and any pre-requisite background required by attendees (beyond average modeling skills) Description of the tutorial (max 4 pages) Intended outline Novelty of the tutorial (if similar tutorials have been given in previous editions of the MODELS conference discuss the differences with respect to the current proposal) Proposals in PDF format should be uploaded at EasyChair by March 13, 2014 UTC-12. Submitted proposals will be reviewed to ensure high quality and an appropriate mix of tutorials at the conference. The goal will be to provide a diverse set of lectures that attract a high level interest among broad segments of the MODELS community. Material Authors of accepted tutorial proposals are expected to prepare a set of slides to be distributed to participants, including a bibliography pertinent to the tutorial. Compensation As in previous years, participants will pay a single satellite fee which will cover both tutorials and workshops. This permits unifying the treatment of Workshops and Tutorials, and it makes tutorials more attractive to attendees: they are much more likely to attend workshops and tutorials than they were when they had to pay additional fees for a tutorial. Under this schema, tutorial presenters will not receive monetary compensation, and will have to pay their own registration to the satellite events. By submitting a tutorial proposal the presenter accepts that there will be no compensation for giving the tutorial if accepted. The benefit to the presenter is the opportunity to extend their sphere of influence to the MODELS satellite attendees. Important Dates All deadlines are hard. No extensions will be allowed. Deadline is midnight for time zone UTC -12. Tutorial Organization and Contact Information The Tutorial chairs are: Michel Chaudron, Chalmers University of Technology | Gothenburg University, Sweden Juan de Lara, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain They can be contacted here. The names of the Tutorials Selection Committee members can be found on the Committees Web Page.
