ICECCS 2012 Workshops

7th IEEE International Workshop on UML and AADL (UML&AADL’2012)

New real-time systems have increasingly complex architectures because of the intricacy of the multiple interdependent features they have to manage. They must meet new requirements of reusability, interoperability, flexibility and portability. These new dimensions favour the use of an architecture description language that offers a global vision of the system, and which is particularly suitable for handling real-time characteristics.

Due to the even more increased complexity of distributed, real-time and embedded systems (DRE), the need for a model-driven approach is more obvious in this domain than in monolithic RT systems. The purpose of this workshop is to provide an opportunity to gather researchers and industrial practitioners to survey existing efforts related to behaviour modelling and model-based analysis of DRE systems.


Distributed real-time embedded systems (DRE) or Cyber-Physical systems (CPS) combine many challenges to meet requirements for reusability, interoperability, flexibility or dependability. The use of architecture description language helps building a global vision of the system to simulate, validate, verify or simply assess its functional and non functional properties.

The 7th workshop on UML&DDL seeks contributions from researchers and practitioners interested in all aspects of the representation, analysis, and implementation of DRE or CPS systems behavior and/or architecture models. We solicit papers (6 pages long, IEEE-CS format) related to, but not limited to, the following principal topics:

  • Advances in modeling notations: MARTE, SysML, AADL, EAST-ADL, ...; and their associated tool support
  • Modeling languages interoperability to form integrated process, e.g. combining MARTE and SysML, AADL and MARTE, third-party tools
  • Definition of context-centric extensions, e.g. for avionics domain, or to meet particular analysis requirements (dependability, safety, security, ...)
  • Automated System Engineering and System Composition through formalized association rules
  • Model-based methodologies and multi-domain modeling
  • Model-based engineering Process with the SAE AADL or OMG standards (UML, CCM, DDS ...)
  • Architectural analysis domain methods
  • Real-time Software/System development issues
  • Integration of multiple domains of architectural analysis
  • Model transformation and generative approaches
  • Model Checking or Proof-based design of architecture specifications
  • ADLs behavioral models simulation, Scheduling analysis and Worst-case execution time prediction
  • Assuring implementation correctness to architectural specification and analysis
  • Experiments reports on tool chains facilitating architecture centric development


  • Abstracts deadline: February 1, 2012
  • Paper submission deadline: February 15 March 1, 2012
  • Notification of acceptance: March 30, 2012 April 6, 2012
  • Camera-ready material for publication : April 15, 2012
  • Checking for Production: April 30, 2012
  • Conference date: July 18-20, 2012
