Model-Driven Web Engineering 2007 (MDWE’07)

at ICWE 2007
Como, Italy, July 16-20


Model-Driven Software Development (MDSD) advocates the use of models and 

transformations as the key artefacts in all phases of development, from 

specification and analysis, to design and testing. Each model usually 
addresses one

concern, independently from the rest of the issues involved in the 
construction of the

system. Thus, the basic functionality of the system can be separated 
from its final

implementation; the business logic can be separated from the underlying 

technology, etc. The transformations between models enable the automated 
implementation of

a system right from the different models defined for it.

Web Engineering is a specific domain in which Model-Driven Software 
Development (MDSD) can

be successfully applied. Existing model-based Web engineering approaches 
already provide

excellent methods and tools for the design and development of most kinds 
of Web

applications. They address different concerns using separate models 

presentation, workflows, etc.) and come with model compilers that 
produce most of the

application’s Web pages and logic based on these models. However, most 
of these Web

Engineering proposals do not fully exploit all the potential benefits of 
MDSD, such as

complete platform independence, model transformation, and metamodelling.

Recently, the MDA initiative has introduced a new approach for 
organizing the design of an

application into different models so portability, interoperability and 
reusability can be

obtained through architectural separation of concerns. MDA covers a wide 
spectrum of

topics and issues (MOF-based metamodels, UML profiles, model 
transformations, modelling

languages and tools, etc.). In another camp, Software Factories provide 
concepts and

resources for the model-based design of complex applications. At the 
same time, we see a

trend towards the incorporation of emerging technologies like the 
Semantic Web and

(Semantic) Web Rule Languages, which aim at fostering application 

However, the effective integration of all these techniques with the 
already existing

model-based Web Engineering approaches is still unresolved.

The workshop will provide – in the same way as the previous MDWE´05 and 
MDWE'06 did – a

discussion forum where researchers and practitioners on model-driven 
development of Web

applications can meet, disseminate and exchange ideas and problems, 
identify some of the

key issues related to these topics, and explore together possible 
solutions and future


* Topics for the workshop

The main goal of this workshop is to offer a forum to exchange 
experiences and ideas

related to model-driven software development in the Web Engineering 
field. Accordingly, we

will invite submissions from both academia and industry about any of the 
following topics

of interest:

· Model Driven Architecture (MDA) in the context of Web application 
· Other model-driven approaches (e.g., Software Factories) for the 
development of Web

· Potential problems or limitations of MDSD in Web Engineering
· Metamodels for model-driven approaches used for Web application 
· UML profiles for Web applications
· Web systems software architecture modelling in MDSD approaches
· Model-driven code generation for Web applications
· Model transformations in the context of model-driven approaches used 
for Web application

· Model-to-model and model-to-code transformations
· Model transformation languages
· Interoperability models for Web applications and resources (Web pages, 
Web services,

distributed components, etc.)
· Tools for model-driven Web development
· Model-driven quality analysis of Web applications
· Maintenance, evolution and management of model-driven generated Web 
· Model-driven approaches to design distributions aspects in Web systems
· Use of Semantic Web-based approaches in model-driven Web design

* Submission Format and Procedure

Paper submissions should be formatted according to the LNCS guidelines 
and must not be

longer than 15 (fifteen) pages and include the authors’ name, 
affiliation, and contact

details. They should be submitted using the EasyChair review system 
through the MDWE’07

Workshop website (http://wise.vub.ac.be/mdwe2007/) before April 7, 2007. 
All submissions

will be formally reviewed by at least two reviewers. Authors will be 
notified of

acceptance by May 13, 2007 and camera-ready versions of the workshop 
papers need to be due

on May 30, 2007. At least one author of accepted papers should register 
for the conference

and participate in the workshop. Workshop proceedings will be published 
with ISSN, both in

paper and electronically. Workshop papers will be made available on-line 
to the

participants at least one week before the workshop. In addition, the 
best papers will be

invited to send an extended version of the paper to a journal in a 
special issue on the

topic on Model-Driven Web Engineering.
