Workshop #17 - Workshop on Integration and Transformation of UML models

Monday WS02   WS04   WS06 WS07 WS08 WS12 WS18 WS19 WS20
Tuesday WS01 WS03 WS04 WS09 WS10 WS11 WS13 WS14 WS15 WS16 WS17



This workshop aims to understand more fully the relationship between different UML models. Each model in UML represents a particular viewpoint of the system under development. However, it is not clear from the UML specification how these models should be related. The relationships between UML models can be understood in terms of transformation – in which models are translated into other models (e.g., sequence diagrams transformed into statecharts) – or integration – in which models are somehow linked to contribute additional meaning (e.g., a statechart is attached to a class to describe the behaviour of that class). The result of the workshop will be an increased understanding of the possible transformation/integration approaches and how they can best be used in particular contexts.

This is a follow-on workshop to the highly successful Workshop on Transformations of UML models (WTUML), held as a satellite event to the ETAPS conference (Genoa, April 2001).

A non-exhaustive list of topics includes:

transformation and integration between UML notations;
transformations to other notations (e.g., formal languages, other modelling languages, code);
rigorous processes for transformation and integration;
formal and informal transformations;
experience in industry using transformation and integration in UML;
identification of specific transformations needed in industry;
semantic issues related to UML model transformation and integration;
types of transformations (e.g. refinements, enhancements, refactoring);
role of transformations and integrations in UML;
transformations for development, validation, verification;
frameworks for implementing transformations;
tool support for transformations and integration.
