CFP: ECOOP Workshop on Equation-Based Object-Oriented Languages and Tools

                Call for Contributions EOOLT'2008
     2nd Workshop on Equation-Based Object-Oriented Languages and Tools
                  in conjunction with ECOOP 2008

                 July 8, 2008  (Pathos, Cyprus)

                (see also: http://2008.ecoop.org/)


Computer aided modeling and simulation of complex systems, using components
from multiple application domains, such as electrical, mechanical,
hydraulic, control, etc., have in recent years witnessed a significant
growth of interest. In the last decade, novel modeling and simulation
languages, (e.g. Modelica, gPROMS, Chi, Verilog-AMS, and VHDL-AMS) based on
acausal modeling using differential algebraic equations (DAEs) have
appeared. Using such languages, it has become possible to model complex
systems covering multiple application domains at a high level of abstraction
through reusable model components. In the last couple of years the name
equation-based object-oriented (EOO) language has been introduced to denote
modeling languages within this category. 

The EOOLT Workshop addresses the current state of the art of EOO modeling
languages as well as open issues that currently still limit the expression
power, correctness, and usefulness of such languages through a set of
full-length presentations and forum discussions. 

The workshop is concerned with, but not limited to, the following themes: 

 * Acausality and its role in model reusability.
 * Component systems for EOO languages. 
 * Database lookup and knowledge invocation.
 * Discrete-event and hybrid modeling using EOO languages. 
 * Embedded systems.
 * EOO language constructs in support of simulation, optimization,
   and system identification. 
 * EOO mathematical modeling vs. UML modeling. 
 * Equation-based languages supporting DAEs and/or PDEs.
 * Formal semantics of EOO related languages.
 * Multi-resolution / multi-scale modeling using EOO languages.
 * Numerical coupling of EOO simulators and other simulation tools.
 * Parallel execution of EOO models. 
 * Performance issues. 
 * Programming / modeling environments.
 * Real-time simulation using EOO languages.
 * Reflection and meta-programming. 
 * Reuse of models in EOO languages. 
 * Table lookup and interpolation.
 * Type systems and early static checking. 
 * Verification. 
 * Model-driven development.


Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit full-length research
papers (up to 10 pages) for consideration by the program committee. 

Papers are welcome that offer presentations and discussions of existing
tools, their capabilities and limitations; reports on practical experience;
demonstrations of tools, ideas, and concepts; positions related to relevant
questions; and discussion topics.


If a paper has been accepted, the authors should present the paper at the
workshop and also have the paper published in electronic proceedings (and a
local conference paper version) at Linköping University Electronic Press.
The best of these papers will be selected and the authors will be asked to
resubmit an extended version for review and to be possibly published in the
SIMPRA journal. 

Important Dates

 * Submission deadline: April 30 
 * Author notification: May 26
