Aims and Scope
GT-VMT 2013 is the twelfth workshop of a series that serves as a forum for all researchers and practitioners interested in the use of visual notations (especially graph-based), techniques and tools for the specification, modeling, validation, manipulation and verification of complex systems. The aim of the workshop is to promote engineering approaches that provide effective sound tool support for visual modeling languages, enhancing formal reasoning at the syntactic as well as semantic level (e.g., for model specification, model analysis, model transformation, and model consistency management) in different domains, such as UML, Petri Nets, Graph Transformation or Business Process/Workflow Models.
This year's workshop has a special theme of the analysis of non-functional / extra-functional / quality properties like performance, real-time, safety, reliability, energy consumption. We particularly encourage submissions that focus on the definition and the evaluation of such properties using visual/graph specification techniques, ranging from underlying theory through to their utility in complex system design.
As a summary, topics relevant to the scope of the workshop include (but are not restricted to) the following:
- visual languages definition and syntax (incl. meta-modelling, grammars and graphical parsing);
- static and dynamic semantics of visual languages (incl. OCL, graph constraints, simulation, animation, compilation);
- visual/graph-based analysis in software engineering (incl. testing, verification & validation, static & dynamic analysis techniques);
- visual/graph constraints (incl. definition, expressiveness, analysis techniques involving constraints);
- model transformations and their application in model-driven development (incl. in particular, transformations between graphical and textual formalisms);
- visual modeling techniques and graph transformation applied to patterns;
- visual modeling techniques and graph transformations for systems with quality properties like performance, real-time, safety, reliability, energy consumption;
- case studies and novel application areas (e.g. within engineering, biology, etc);
- tool support and efficient algorithms.
Invited SpeakersWe are happy that Andrea Corradini, University of Pisa (Italy), and Holger Giese, University of Potsdam (Germany), have agreed to give invited talks.
The proceedings of this workshop will be published in the journal of Electronic Communications of the EASST. Papers should not exceed 12 pages.
Please submit your abstract and paper using the EasyChair page for the workshop.
The authors of the best papers of the workshop will be invited to submit a revised and extended version of their paper to a special issue in the Journal Science of Computer Programming subject to further review.
