In conjunction with the ACM EICS Symposium 2012 in Copenhagen, Denmark, June 25-28, 2012

* Abstract due:	 April 17, 2012
* Submission deadline: April 23, 2012
* Review notification:	 May 07, 2012
* Final submissions: 	 June 08, 2012
* Workshop date: 	 June 25, 2012

Ubiquitous systems today are introducing a new quality of interaction both into our lives and into software engineering. Systems become increasingly dynamic making frequent changes to system structures, distribution, and behavior necessary. Also, adaptation to new user needs and contexts as well as new modalities and communication channels make these systems differ strongly from what has been standard in the last decades.
Models and model-based interaction at runtime and design-time form a promising approach for coping with the dynamics and uncertainties inherent to interactive ubiquitous systems (IUS). Hence, this workshop discusses how model-based approaches can be used to cope with challenges of IUS. Therefore, it covers the range from design-time to runtime models and from interaction to software engineering, addressing the challenges of interaction with and engineering of interactive ubiquitous systems.

Building on the results of MODIQUITOUS 2011 at EICS 2011, this year's workshop aims at strengthening the community and allow for deeper discussions as well as inclusion of new developments in ubiquitous systems research.

The MODIQUITOUS workshop is intended to discuss challenges and possible solutions of the EICS community to design and runtime aspects of Interactive Ubiquitous Systems (IUS) with a focus on model-based approaches. Thus, the topics of particular interest include (but are not limited to):

* Model-driven architecture (MDA) in the context of IUS
* Advantages and potential problems of using MDA in the IUS domain
* Domain and Meta models for IUS, specifically for IUS-related aspects like interaction, different modalities, dynamic distribution, context-awareness, etc.
* Model-driven generation of (intelligent) IUS
* Model-to-model and model-to-code transformations for IUS development
* Model-driven development and execution architectures, i.e., runtime systems for IUS
* Tools and frameworks for supporting the model-driven development of IUS
* Concepts for context-awareness and self-adaptation of IUS at the model and runtime level
* Software and Usability Engineering aspects in the context of model-based IUS
* Innovative ideas and novel application solutions for new interactive ubiquitous settings, e.g., from the fields of mobile computing, pervasive computing and social software
* Studies on interaction concepts on IUS
* Requirements, insights and experiences from existing mobile and pervasive settings

Authors are invited to submit full _research papers_ (6-8 pages) addressing one or more of the topics of interest. Further, we encourage the submission of _demonstration and position papers_ (2-4 pages) as one aspect of achieving an interactive workshop atmosphere. Demonstration and position paper should describe cutting-edge systems or actual and relevant work in progress. Generally, both academic and industrial experience papers are solicited.

All submitted papers must be in English, formatted according to the SIGCHI Publications Format - templates are available at http://www.sigchi.org/chipubform. 

Papers can be submitted by using the EasyChair conference system. To submit, please log in at: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=modiquitous2012

Submitted papers will be reviewed by members of the program committee. They will be evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and relevance to the workshop.

At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to attend the workshop. All accepted papers will be published online. If enough papers of high quality are received for the workshop, we plan to publish them in the frame of a special issue in VIMation Journal - in a reworked and possibly extended version, including the results of the workshop. In any case, the contributions will be published in a publicly accessible way as workshop proceedings, including the result of the workshop.
