                   SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

First Int. Workshop on Model-Driven Web Engineering (MDWE 2005)

                in conjunction with ICWE 2005  

                    in Sydney, Australia

                        July 26, 2004
         at the University of Technology of Sydney


Call for Papers
Model-Driven Software Engineering (MDE) is becoming a widely accepted
approach for developing complex distributed applications. MDE advocates
the use of models as the key artefacts in all phases of development,
from system specification and analysis, to design and testing. Each
model usually addresses one concern, independently from the rest of the
issues involved in the construction of the system. Thus, the basic
functionality of the system can be separated from its final
implementation; the business logic can be separated from the underlying
platform technology, etc. The transformations between models provide a
chain that enables the automated implementation of a system right from
the different models defined for it. 

The development of Web applications is a specific domain in which MDE
can be successfully applied, due to its particular characteristics. In
fact, existing model-based Web engineering approaches currently provide
excellent methodologies and tools for the design and development of Web
applications. They address different concerns using separate models
(navigation, presentation, data, etc.), and count with model compilers
that produce most of the application’s web pages based on these models.
However, these proposals also present some limitations, especially when
it comes to modelling further concerns, such as architectural styles, or
distribution. Furthermore, current Web applications need to interoperate
with other external systems, which require their integration with third
party web-services, portals, portlets, and also with legacy systems.
Recently, the MDA initiative has provided a new approach for organizing
the design of an application into (yet another set of) separate models
so portability, interoperability and reusability can be obtained through
architectural separation of concerns. MDA covers a wide spectrum of
topics and issues (MOF-based metamodels, UML profiles, model
transformations, modelling languages, tools, etc.) that need to be yet

This Workshop aims at providing a discussion forum where researchers and
practitioners on these topics can meet, disseminate and exchange ideas
and problems, identify some of the key issues related to the
model-driven development of Web applications, and explore together
possible solutions and future works. 

Topics of interest
The main goal of this Workshop is to offer a forum to exchange
experiences and ideas related to the use 
of models for Web applications design, development, and maintenance, and
tools to support these processes. 
Accordingly, we invite submissions from both academia and industry about
any of the following topics of interest:

- Conceptual and data models for Web systems
- Model Driven Architecture (MDA) and other model-driven approaches in
the context of Web application development
- UML profiles for Web applications
- Web systems software architecture modelling
- Model-based Web design methods 
- Model-driven code generation for Web applications
- Model and metamodel transformations
- ntegration of legacy applications and information with new Web
- Interoperability models for Web applications and resources (Web pages,
Web services, portlets, distributed components, etc.)
- Tools for model-driven Web development
- Model driven quality analysis of Web applications
- Maintenance, evolution and management of model-based Web systems
- Case studies and industrial experiences

Submission Format and Procedure
To enable lively and productive discussions, attendance will be limited
to 25 participants and submission of a 
paper or a position statement is required. All submissions will be
formally reviewed by at least two reviewers. 
To facilitate the exchange of ideas and the comparison of experiences,
we suggest that all papers use the same 
example to illustrate their ideas and proposals. The example is a
simplified version of the Travel Agency, whose 
description can be found at 

Submissions should be 4 to 10 pages long in IEEE CS format
( and include the authors’
name, affiliation and contact 
details. They should be submitted by e-mail as postscript or PDF files
before May 9, 2005, to the Workshop Chairs 
([log in to unmask]). 

Authors will be notified of acceptance by June 6, 2005. At least one
author of accepted papers should participate 
in the workshop. 

The workshop proceedings will be formally published with ISBN for both
hard copy  
proceedings as well as for the CD, and will be made available on-line to
participants at least one week before the workshop. In addition, 
the five best papers will be invited to send an extended version 
of the paper to the Journal of Web Engineering for publication in a 
special issue on the topic Model Driven Web Engineering.

Paper submission: May 9, 2005.
Notification of acceptance: June 6, 2005.
Final paper due: July 2, 2005.
