5th Workshop on Model-Based Development for ComputerBased Systems: Domain-Specific Approaches to Model-Based Development

within the 14th Annual IEEE International Conference and Workshop on the Engineering of Computer Based Systems (ECBS) 

Successful application of model-based development in domains like business information systems or embedded systems has demonstrated its practical relevance. While originally using general-purpose models, current trends in research and application indicate the importance of approaches or profiles supporting specific application-domains (e.g., automation, business processes, web-services) or development steps (e.g., requirements analysis, feature architecture, deployment). 

This workshop focuses on the scientific and practical aspects of model-based development (models, processes, methods, and tools) for supporting the construction of computer-based systems, with a focus on domain-specific modeling. Topics of the workshop include:
- Models for specific application domains
- Models for specific development steps
- Purpose and Role of Models in the System Engineering Process
- Integration of models in model-based development
- Relation between Requirements and Design Models
- Model synthesis and transformation
- Model-based validation and verification
- Model evolution and maintenance
- Tool support for model-based development
- Case studies and application of model-based development

To support the workshop character, two classes of contributions are sought:
- Full papers as regular technical contribution (10 pages, IEEE Computer Society Format)
  to be reviewed and published in the conference proceedings
  upon acceptance
- Position papers as short problem statements, research questions, or
  experience reports (2 - 4 pages) to be reviewed and published in the
  online proceedings upon acceptance.
