11th Workshop on Modelling in Software Engineering (MiSE’2019)
hosted by ICSE 2019
Montreal, Canada, May 26-27, 2019


Theme and Goals

Models are an important tool in conquering the increasing complexity of modern software systems. Key industries (e.g., automotive and avionics) are strategically directing their development environments towards more extensive use of modeling techniques.

This 2-day workshop aims to understand, through critical analysis, the current and future uses of models in the engineering of software-intensive systems. By fostering exchange of ideas between the MDE and software engineering communities, the MiSE-workshop series has continuously served as an effective forum for discussing modeling techniques from both software and systems engineering perspectives. We also hope to analyze successful applications of modeling techniques in relevant areas such as Cyber-Physical Systems, Internet of Things, Big and Smart Data, learning machines, and determine how the participants experience can be carried over to other domains. During the workshop, we plan to discuss various industrial challenges and teaching best practices related to modeling.

Workshop activities will focus on analyzing both successful and unsuccessful applications of software modeling techniques to gain insights into challenging modeling problems, including: (1) identifying, describing, and using appropriate abstractions, (2) supporting incremental, iterative, collaborative development through the use of appropriate model composition, transformation and other model manipulation operators, (3) automated analysis of possibly large, possibly incomplete models to determine the presence or absence of desired and undesired properties, and (4) using models to assess risks, enable decision-making in organisations, or to support prognostics of business key performance indicators (KPIs).

The expected program is a mix of research presentations, tool demonstrations, best practices on teaching modeling techniques, and industrial challenges


Topics of interest include:

  • Modeling notations and tools
  • Metamodeling
  • Abstractions and modeling methodologies
  • Model-based analysis and synthesis (e.g., generating test cases, configurations)
  • Model transformation and composition
  • Model evaluation
  • Model management
  • Extracting models from software artifacts (e.g., system or program understanding)
  • Models for learning machines
  • Models of big and smart data
  • Collaborative modeling (e.g. offline vs online, access control restrictions)
  • Modeling cyber-physical systems
  • Models at runtime (e.g., for software adaptation)
  • Models for what-if? analysis and prognostics of KPIs
  • Empirical studies
  • Domain-specific (modeling) languages
  • Variability management using models
  • Model reuse
  • Further uses of modeling

Workshop format

The workshop will be highly interactive and focused on the sharing of ideas and on progressing towards a shared vision of research goals. All attendees will also have an opportunity to discuss topics emerging from the collective presentations.


Although the workshop is open to all, prospective participants are invited to submit

  • a full research paper (7 pages, including references),
  • a short paper (4 pages, including references), or
  • a talk proposal on tool demonstration, best practices on teaching modeling techniques, or industrial challenges (1-2 pages, including references)

Workshop papers must follow the ICSE 2019 Format and Submission Guideline. Accepted full research papers and short papers will become part of the workshop proceedings, to be made available in the IEEE Digital Library. Talk proposals will not become part of the proceedings.

All submissions will be reviewed by members of the program committee and the organizing committee for quality and relevance. In addition, full research papers and short papers will be reviewed for novelty.

Please submit your papers via our EasyChair submission site by the MiSE'19 deadline of 1 February 2019 (AoE). Submissions do not need to be double-blinded.
