                     June 21-22, 2004
                Linköping University, Sweden

  Special session on UML Profiles for Embedded and Real-Time Systems

                       organized by:
  Research Center for Integrational Software Engineering (RISE)
             Programming Environments Lab (PELAB)

                Linköping University, Sweden

Model Driven Architecture (MDA, http://www.omg.org/mda) separates
the specification of system functionality from the specification of the
implementation on a specific platform. It is aimed at making the
software assets more resilient to changes caused by the emerging
technologies and makes the role of modeling and models in the current
software development much more important. The MDA initiative covers a wide
spectrum of research areas; some of them are already well established and
some are newly emerged. Further efforts are required to bring them into a
coherent approach, based on open standards and supported by matured 
tools and
techniques. The goal of this working conference is to understand the 
to analyze the state of-the-art, to identify problems and solutions, to 
future research directions and to share experience in applying MDA
techniques and tools.

Submission Details

Two types of papers are expected: short position papers (no longer than 4
pages) and full papers on research and experience (no longer than 15 
Accepted short and full papers will be included in a technical
report available at the working conference.

It is planned to publish the full papers and selected short papers after 
working conference in an LNCS volume from Springer. Preferably, papers 
respect the LNCS format.
