Model-driven Architecture (MDA) is an initiative by the OMG to leverage UML-based modeling techniques to insulate abstract software system specifications from implementation dependencies. The workshop focuses on generative techniques that can be used to realize MDA. The aim is to bring together practitioners, researchers, academics, and students to discuss their experience with generative techniques and MDA.

Topics of interest include:

    synergy between MDA, components and generative techniques;

    designing domain specific languages on the basis of UML;

    modeling variability within product lines;

    model-to-model transformations;

    styles of model-driven generators;

    model-driven template languages (design, execution environment, debugging, editors, management of template code);

    specification of heuristics and manual design decisions

    use of XSLT for MDA;

    generation of code & non-code artifacts;

    influence of MDA on software architecture;

    MDA and agile development;

    industrial applications of MDA.

The goal is to share experience, consolidate successful techniques, and identify the most promising application areas and open issues for future work. Tracks: Emerging Technologies; Model Driven Architecture, Languages
