QUAMES 2022

3rd International Workshop on Quality and Measurement of Software Model-Driven Development
(collocated with RCIS 2022)

The success of software development projects has a direct relation with the productivity of human resources and the efficiency of development processes to obtain high-quality products. In this context, model-driven development (MDD) is a well-known and largely-adopted paradigm for automating software generation and re-use of development knowledge.

The MDD paradigm is centered on the automatic generation of software systems by means of model transformations. The MDD advantages have motivated the emergence of several modeling proposals and MDD tools related to different application domains and stages of the development cycle. Therefore, nowadays model-based software production technologies are widely accepted and applied in very diverse domains.

In such an MDD context, quality of conceptual models is of paramount importance since it directly influences the quality of the final software systems. Therefore, techniques are necessary to evaluate the conceptual models and predict relevant characteristics of the software products that will be generated. Furthermore, the management of MDD projects has to be adapted to take into account that programming effort is being replaced by a modelling effort at an earlier stage. Thus, measurement of models is necessary to properly support the estimation of costs and management of MDD projects.

The main goal of QUAMES is to present methods, procedures, techniques, and tools that enable the measurement and the evaluation of the quality of conceptual models that can be used in MDD environments.

The topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Quality models for conceptual models
  • Empirical evaluation of quality models
  • Measures for conceptual models
  • Measurement of conceptual models
  • Defect detection in conceptual models
  • Testing of conceptual models
  • Model-based testing
  • Case studies, experiments, and surveys of MDD projects
  • Tools for measuring conceptual models
  • Tools for quality evaluation of conceptual models
  • Tools for model-based testing
  • Quality of conceptual models for ethics and trustworthiness

Important Dates

  • Paper submission deadline: March 18, 2022
  • Authors notification: April 15, 2022
  • Camera-ready: April 22, 2022
  • Workshop paper author registration: April 22, 2022

Submissions & Registration

Participants will be invited to submit papers concerning the quality, measurement, or testing of models that can be used in MDD environments. Ongoing research works are also welcome.

Papers can be accepted as full papers or short papers, with no more than 10 pages for long papers and no more than 5 pages for short papers.

Submissions to QUAMES 2022 must be formatted according to the CEUR proceedings format using the 1-column CEUR-ART style following the guidelines presented at http://ceur-ws.org/HOWTOSUBMIT.html.

Papers have to be submitted in PDF format using the EasyChair submission page easychair.

All submissions will be screened by the scientific committee for their appropriateness with the workshop themes and format. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three program committee members. Authors will be guided to fit their presentations to the workshop rules. In case of inconclusive and conflicting review results, internal discussions will be held to decide upon the final acceptance or rejection of a paper.

It is mandatory that at least one author will register and present the paper during the workshop.
