The workshop aims to bring together experts in model-based,
model-driven and software engineering with experts in simulation
methods and simulation practitioners, with the objective to
advance the state of the art in model-driven simulation
engineering.

Model-driven engineering approaches provide considerable
advantages to software systems engineering activities through the
provision of consistent and coherent models at different
abstraction levels. As these models are in a machine readable
form, model-driven engineering approaches can also support the
exploitation of computing capabilities for model reuse,
programming code generation, and model checking, for example.

The definition of a simulation model, its software implementation
and its execution platform form what is known as simulation
engineering. As simulation systems are mainly based on software,
these systems can similarly benefit from model-driven approaches
to support automatic software generation, enhance software
quality, and reduce costs, development effort and time-to-market.

Similarly to systems and software engineering, simulation
engineering can exploit the capabilities of model-driven
approaches by increasing the abstraction level in simulation
model specifications and by automating the derivation of
simulator code. Further advantages can be gained by using
modeling languages, such as UML and SysML, but not exclusively
those. For example, modeling languages can be used for
descriptive modeling (to describe the system to be simulated),
for analytical modeling (to specify analytically the simulation
of the same system) and for implementation modeling (to define
the respective simulator).

A partial list of topics of interest includes:

* model-driven simulation engineering processes
* requirements modeling for simulation
* domain specific languages for modeling and simulation
* model transformations for simulation model building
* model transformations for simulation model implementation
* model-driven engineering of distributed simulation systems
* relationship between metamodeling standards (e.g., MOF, Ecore)
  and distributed simulation standards (e.g., HLA, DIS)
* metamodels for simulation reuse and interoperability
* model-driven technologies for different simulation paradigms
  (discrete event simulation, multi-agent simulation,
  sketch-based simulation, etc.)
* model-driven methods and tools for performance engineering of
  simulation systems
* simulation tools for model-driven software performance
  engineering
* model-driven technologies for simulation verification and
  validation
* model-driven technologies for data collection and analysis
* model-driven technologies for simulation visualization
* executable UML
* executable architectures
* SysML/Modelica integration
* simulation model portability and reuse
* model-based systems verification and validation
* simulation for model-based systems engineering

To stimulate creativity, however, the workshop maintains a wider
scope and welcomes contributions offering original perspectives
on model-driven engineering of simulation systems.
