Modularity in Modelling Workshop

Extending the time-honored practice of separation of concerns, Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) promotes the use of separate models to address the various concerns in the development of complex software-intensive systems. The main objective is to choose the right level of abstraction to modularize a concern, specify its properties and reason about the system under development depending on stakeholder and development needs. While some of these models can be defined with a single modelling language, a variety of heterogeneous models and languages are typically used in the various phases of software development. Furthermore, Domain-Specific Modelling Languages designed to address particular concerns are also increasingly used.

Despite the power of abstraction of modelling, models of real-world problems and systems quickly grow to such an extent that managing the complexity by using proper modularization techniques becomes necessary. As a result, many (standard) modelling notations have been extended with aspect-oriented mechanisms and advanced composition operators to support advanced separation of concerns, to combine (possibly heterogeneous) models modularizing different concerns, to execute an application based on modularized models, and to reason over global properties of modularized models.

The Second International Modularity in Modelling Workshop (MOMO) brings together researchers and practitioners interested in the theoretical and practical challenges resulting from applying modularity, advanced separation of concerns, and advanced composition at the modelling level. It is intended to provide a forum for presenting new ideas and discussing the impact of the use of modularization in the context of MDE at different levels of abstraction.

Accepted papers will become part of the workshop proceedings and will be submitted for inclusion into the ACM Digital Library. Workshop presentations will be posted on the workshop website. Acceptance of a paper implies that one of the authors registers for the workshop to present the submission; failure to do so by the early registration deadline will result in the paper being withdrawn from the workshop proceedings. We reserve the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the workshop (e.g., by not placing it into the digital library) if the paper is not presented at the workshop.


MOMO invites participants to submit original regular workshop papers with a length of five (5) pages, as well as shorter original position papers with a length of three (3) pages. Previously published papers or papers accepted or under review for other events are ineligible for submission to MOMO 2017. Papers must be in pdf format, written in English, formatted according to the following ACM formatting instructions, and submitted via EasyChair.

Formatting Instructions (tentative - still to be confirmed)

The format of your paper must strictly adhere to the ACM SIGPLAN template with the default font size (9 point).

Submission of camera-ready version of paper

All authors of all accepted contributions will be asked to complete a Copyright form and will receive further instructions for preparing their camera-ready versions.


At least three members of the program committee will evaluate the technical contribution of each submission as well as its accessibility to the audience. Papers will be judged on quality, significance, relevance, originality, substance, correctness, and clarity.
