W05: The 6th OOPSLA Workshop on Domain-Specific Modeling

W05: The 6th OOPSLA Workshop on Domain-Specific Modeling

Sunday, Oct 22, from 08:30 to 17:00, F149

Workshop web site:

An upward shift in abstraction leads to a corresponding increase in productivity. In the past this has occurred when programming languages have evolved towards a higher level of abstraction. Today, domain-specific modeling languages provide a viable solution for continuing to raise the level of abstraction beyond coding, making development faster and easier. In domain-specific modeling (DSM) the models are constructed using concepts that represent things in the application domain, not concepts of a given programming language. The modeling language follows the domain abstractions and semantics, allowing developers to perceive themselves as working directly with domain concepts. Together with generators and components, DSM can automate a large portion of software production.

Workshop topics:

  • Industry/academic experience reports
  • Creation of metamodel-based languages
  • Novel approaches for code generation from domain-specific models
  • Issues of support/maintenance for systems built with DSMs
  • Evolution of languages in accordance with domain
  • Metamodeling frameworks and languages
  • Tools for supporting DSMs
