A six day event targeting software engineers and computer scientists from industry and academia who are interested in all aspects of modeling software and systems.

It will be held in Ottawa Sep 27-Oct 2 2015 at the Delta Ottawa City Centre.

The first three days (Sunday-Tuesday) are the 'satellite events', a series of workshops and tutorials on modeling topics. The final three days (the 'main conference') consists of keynote talks, paper presentations, panels, demonstrations, and poster sessions. Also part of the conference are the 'educators symposium' dedicated to discussing how to teach models and modeling, the 'doctoral symposium' to help PhD students, and the 'ACM Student Research Competition'.

Participants may register for the satellite events, the main conference, or both. There are discounts for IEEE members, ACM members and students.

Throughout the conference, various vendors will display books, software tools, and other products and services. If you are interested in these opportunities, contact us to become a sponsor.

There will be a reception for the satellite events and another for the main conference. The conference banquet will be Thursday evening.

There are a series of calls for papers with different deadlines. The main conference papers are due May 1. Papers for the workshops and symposia are due later. However, the deadline for those wishing to organize workshops is March 12.

Topics at the conference include:

  • Evaluation and comparison of modeling languages, techniques and tools
  • Modeling standards and standards bodies such as OMG, ITU
  • Syntax and semantics of modeling languages
  • Model transformations
  • Modeling tools
