11 September 2009, Fifth International Workshop on Modelling of Objects, Components, and Agents (MOCA 2009), Hamburg, Germany

Date: 11 September 2009
Location: Hamburg, Germany
Deadline: 17 July 2009

Objects, components, and agents are fundamental units to organise models. They are also fundamental concepts of the modelling process. Even though software engineers intensively use models based on these fundamental units, and models are the subjects of theoretical research, the relations and potential mutual enhancements between theoretical and practical models have not been sufficiently investigated. There is still the need for better modelling languages, standards and tools. Important research areas are for example UML, BPEL, Petri nets, process algebras, or different kinds of logics. Application areas like business processes, (Web) services, production processes, organisation of systems, communication, cooperation, cooperation, ubiquity, mobility etc. will support the domain dependent modelling perspectives.

Therefore, the workshop addresses all relations between theoretical foundations of models on the one hand and objects, components, and agents on the other hand with respect to modelling in general. The intention is to gather research and application directions to have a lively mutual exchange of ideas, knowledge, viewpoints, and experiences.

The Programme Committee cordially invites all researchers to submit their papers for presentation. We look for contributions describing original research in topics related to formal methods in combination with object-orientation, components, or agents addressing open problems or presenting new ideas. Deadline for submissions: July 17, 2009
