WTUML: Workshop on Transformations in UML

UML is essentially a loose collection of different modelling notations with under-defined relationships between them. In order for the full benefits of modelling with UML to be achieved, one key question that needs to be raised is how to develop transformations both between UML notations, and to other languages or formalisms. Well-defined transformations would facilitate advances in UML design methodologies, validation and verification, code generation, model maintenance and developing tools.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss the role of transformations in software engineering with UML.

Workshop participants will be expected to write a short position paper (5 pages) on some aspect of using transformations in UML. A non-exhaustive list of topics includes:

The organizing committee will review and select the most relevant papers for presentation at the workshop. Afterwards, directed discussions will be initiated that are related to the topics of the workshop. At the end of the day, the summary and conclusions of the discussions will be presented.
