1st International Workshop on Adequacy of Modelling Methods (AQEMO'2016)

In conjunction with Modellierung'2016 (March 2-4, 2016, Karlsruhe)


Workshop Description

When designing modeling methods various aspects need to be taken into account at an early stage to ensure the method’s adequacy for the envisaged modeling scenarios. These aspects have direct implications for the conceptualization of the modeling method, which includes the modeling language with its syntax, semantics, notation, modeling procedures, algorithms, etc., as well as the choice of the actual implementation environment. Examples for such aspects include the requirements of the domain and its different target user groups, the intended purpose of the modeling method, e.g. communication, analysis, simulation, processing, code generation etc., persistency aspects, i.e. how models are to be stored for ensuring the efficient processing of algorithms, the retrieval of model information etc., or the choice and design of the graphical notation for ensuring an intuitive understanding. All these aspects may have considerable interdependencies which potentially lead to conflicting targets. Thereby it has to be carefully balanced which aspects have to be met by the design of the modeling method and to what extent. In some cases it may even be favorable to aim for solutions that do not satisfy all potential requirements and are thus more adequate for particular purposes. The workshop thus aims for innovative and original contributions on all aspects regarding the design of adequate modeling methods. We welcome in particular contributions reporting from the experiences of the design of full-fledged and ready-to-use modeling methods.

Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  • Manifestation of user requirements
  • Influences of processing and run time aspects
  • Design and choice of adequate graphical notations
  • Design choices of the abstract and concrete syntax of modeling languages
  • Understandability of modeling methods
  • Context Modeling
  • Requirements for modeling methods supporting code generation
  • Storage and persistency requirements
  • Aspects of the modeling procedure and user interaction
  • Domain requirements
