MODELS 2024
Sun 22 - Fri 27 September 2024 Linz, Austria

About

Following the tradition of previous conferences, MODELS 2024 will host a number of workshops, during the three days before the main conference. The workshops will provide a collaborative forum for a group of typically 15 to 30 participants to exchange recent and/or preliminary results, conduct intensive discussions on a particular topic, or coordinate efforts between representatives of a technical community. They are intended as a forum for lively discussions of innovative ideas, recent progress, or practical experience on model-driven engineering for specific aspects, specific problems, or domain-specific needs. Each workshop should provide a balanced distribution of its time for both presentations of papers (favoring the attendance of young researchers) and discussions. The duration of these workshops is in general one day, but we encourage the submission of half-day workshop proposals on focused topics as well.

Submission process

Submit your workshop proposal electronically in PDF using the MODELS EasyChair submission site. Please adhere to the workshop proposal guidelines, providing every requested information about the proposed workshop, using at most five pages. Please include the one-page draft of your planned Call for Papers in the proposal (not included in the five pages). In order to ensure proper coordination with the deadlines of the main conference, the deadlines specified in Important Dates below have to be respected by your plan for your workshop. An Overleaf template with the suggested structure is available here. (This is a read-only link. In order to work with it, you need to make a copy of it.)

Proceedings

As in previous years, there will be joint workshop proceedings published by ACM that include papers from all workshops. For each workshop, the joint proceedings will include: an opening message from the organizers, including, if applicable, the workshop program committee, and all peer-reviewed papers presented in the workshop. Submissions must adhere to the ACM formatting instructions, which can be found here. Papers should have at least 5 pages. We propose page limits of 5 pages for short papers and 10 pages for full papers following the same style and format as the main tracks of the Conference.
