Domain-specific languages provide a viable and time-tested solution for continuing to raise the level of abstraction, and thus productivity, beyond coding, making systems development faster and easier. When accompanied with suitable automated modeling tools and generators it delivers to the promises of continuous delivery and devops.

In Domain-Specific Modeling (DSM) the models are constructed using concepts that represent things in the application domain, not concepts of a given programming language. The modeling language follows the domain abstractions and semantics, allowing developers to perceive themselves as working directly with domain concepts. Together with frameworks and platforms, DSM can automate a large portion of software production. This automation is possible because of domain-specificity: both the modeling language and code generators fit to the requirements of a narrowly defined domain, often inside one organization only.

Some possible topics for submission to the workshop include:

  • Industry/academic experience reports describing success/failure in implementing and using DSM languages/tools
  • Approaches to identify constructs for DSM languages
  • Empirical studies or assessments that suggest best practices for DSM language design
  • Novel features in language workbenches / tools to support DSM
  • Approaches to implement metamodel-based modeling languages
  • Tools for creating and using DSM languages
  • Metamodeling frameworks and languages
  • Modularization technologies for DSM languages and models
  • Novel approaches for code generation from domain-specific models
  • Issues of support/maintenance for systems built with DSM
  • Evolution of languages along with their domain
  • Organizational and process issues in DSM adoption and use
  • Demonstrations of working DSM solutions (languages, generators, frameworks, tools)
  • Identification of domains where DSM can be most productive in the future (e.g. embedded systems, product families, systems with multiple implementation platforms)

Call for Papers

The workshop welcomes four types of submissions:

1 Research papers describing ideas on either a practical or theoretical level. Full papers should emphasize what is new and significant about the chosen approach and compare it to other work in the field.

2 Experience reports on applying DSM. Papers should describe case studies and experience reports on the application, successes or shortcomings of DSM. The experiences can be related to language creation or use, tooling, or organizational issues, among others.

3 Position papers describing work in progress or an author’s position regarding current DSM practice.

4 DSM demonstrations describing a particular language, generator, or tool for a particular domain. During the workshop, the DSM solution presented in the paper can be demonstrated to the participants.

Papers should be submitted by August 7, 2015. Contributions should be submitted electronically in PDF format via EasyChair. Submitted papers (except demo and position papers) must conform to the ACM SIG Proceedings style - except that the copyright box on the first page must be removed (see templates). The maximum length of a submission is 6 pages. The accepted papers will be published at the workshop website and at ACM DL.

An author of the paper is expected to attend the workshop (registration as Workshop participant via SPLASH. You are not obliged to attend SPLASH itself).

Please visit Workshop website for details
