The 1st International Workshop on Future Trends of Model-Driven Development (FTMDD 2009)

6-7 May, 2009 - Milan, Italy

In conjunction with the 11th International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems (ICEIS 2009)

Background and Goals
The Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) is an approach to the development of IT systems fostered by the Object Management Group (OMG) that separates the specification of the system functionality from its implementation on a particular platform. A common pattern of MDA development is to define a platform-independent model (PIM) of a system, and to apply (parameterised) transformations to this PIM to obtain one or more platform-specific models (PSMs). In this context, PIMs are reusable models that consolidate the application evelopment effort. Furthermore, MDA advocates the use of OMG core technology, especially the Meta-Object Facility (MOF) and MOF-ompliant languages such as UML and CWM. In Model-Driven Development the MDA principles and technologies are applied in the development of software systems.

MDD is already around for some years and is about to become commodity in software development due to its benefits (reduction on development costs, improvement of software quality, reduction of maintenance costs and the support for controlled evolution of IT systems). MDD has also been applied in many application areas, such as real-time and embedded systems, and telecommunication systems, and, more recently, to the development and integration of enterprise information systems. However, the MDD research community is wishing to explore the bounds of MDD, by investigating new applications areas and combinations with other emerging technologies, like, for example, pervasive context-aware systems, Semantic web, Semantic web services, SOA and ontologies. This workshop aims at fostering the further development and application of MDD techniques. This workshop builds upon its predecessor, the International Workshop on Model-Driven Enterprise Information Systems.

Paper Submission
The workshop welcomes three types of submissions:
1. Full papers describing novel ideas on MDD at either a practical or theoretical level. The maximum length of a full paper is 10 pages.
2. Position papers describing work in progress or an author's position regarding the current MDD practice and/or its future trends. The maximum length of a position paper is 4 pages.
3. Demonstrations of a particular prototype approach or tool applicable to MDD. The demonstration should be accompanied by a paper with a maximum length of 4 pages. The demonstration will be shown during the workshop.
Instructions for preparing the manuscript (in Word and Latex formats) are available at the conference Paper Templates web page. Please also check the web page with the Submission Guidelines.
Papers should be submitted electronically via the web-based submission system at: http://www.insticc.org/Primoris

All accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and in CD-ROM support. Publication of selected papers from the workshop in a special issue in an international journal is under investigation.

Registration Information
At least one author of an accepted paper must register for the workshop. If the registration fees are not received by March 17, 2009 the paper will not be published in the workshop proceedings book.
