1st International Workshop on Meta Models for Process Languages (MeMo) 2014

affiliated to DisCoTec, June 6th, 2014, Berlin, Germany

Submission open for regular original papers and presentation proposals (of work possibly submitted/published elsewhere). Deadline: April 2nd (EXTENDED)

Aim and Topics:

The workshop targets research in and new applications of formal meta models for the definition of process languages and their semantics.

Examples of such meta models are bigraphical reactive systems, psi-calculi, the tile model, term and graph rewriting, SOS formats, presheaf models, co-algebras and specification of processes in logical frameworks such as CELF.

The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers working on the development of theory and tools for meta models for process languages - to share insights, uncover similarities and differences, possibilities for cross-fertilization and stimulate further research in this exciting area. The workshop will be welcoming old and new members of the community alike.

In addition to presentations of contributed papers the workshop will offer two 1-hour tutorials, a poster session and a round-table discussion at the end of the workshop.

Submission Instructions

Submissions of regular papers must be original and should not have been published previously nor to be under consideration for publication while being evaluated for this workshop.

We welcome both tool presentations and research contributions.

Submissions of presentation proposals can be based on work submitted elsewhere and be clearly marked as a presentation proposal.

Evaluation criteria will be technical quality, readability, novelty, and scope.

All papers and posters must be in English and submitted at the EasyChair submission site.

Papers should use the Springer LNCS style and not exceed 15 pages in length. Presentation proposals are welcome to be shorter, but should be long enough to communicate the key points of the presentation.

If necessary, the paper may be supplemented with a clearly marked appendix, which will be reviewed at the discretion of the programme committee.

We plan an LNCS post-proceedings volume and depending on the quality of the submissions also a special journal issue of selected, extended papers.
