The invited talks will be complemented by regular paper sessions. Different classes of contributions are sought including
research papers (proposing novel scientific contribution), short tool demonstration papers,
application papers (with lessons learned) or challenge papers (presenting an unsolved problem).
We are looking for submissions presenting the application of graph transformation techniques in a broad sense in the following (non-exclusive) areas:
- Domain-specific languages & tools
- Syntax & semantics of modeling/progr. languages
- Meta CASE tools & code generators
- Verification & validation for model transformations
- Simulation and animation in science & engineering
- Graph layout algorithms & visualization tools
- Pattern matching & recognition algorithms
- Integrated engineering languages & tools
- Model-driven engineering of software systems
- Evolution of software, systems, services
- Service-oriented applications & Semantic Web
- Self-adaptive systems & ubiquitous computing
- Graph-based approaches in novel application areas (healthcare, logistics, biology, multimedia, etc.)
Submitted research papers may address topics concerning either the development or the application of GT-based models, languages, methods, and tools.
Application, Tool Demonstration and Challenges
In addition to traditional research papers, academic and commercial tool demonstrations and application reports are especially encouraged. These demonstrations should present GT-based tools or applications that have been developed using GT technologies.
Application report papers are not necessarily expected to provide a scientific contribution to forward the state-of-the-art of the GT research community, but
- We expect critical assessment of the merits of GT techniques in a studied application domain compared to standard techniques used in this area;
- The submission is a "best practice" description that shows in a reproducible way how GT can be used to overcome problems in a studied domain;
- The paper uses a case study to highlight existing deficiencies of GTs thus giving input for future research activities.
Tool demonstration papers may report on novel features of well-established tools, in addition to presenting completely unpublished tools.
Industrial challenge papers may present an unsolved problem specific to a studied application domain that evolved from an industrial collaboration.
