We are soliciting papers presenting original research on all aspects of model-based engineering. Two types of submissions are possible:
All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee.
All papers have to be submitted electronically in PDF format through Easychair.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
All papers will be assessed by the program committee in terms of their novelty, significance, technical quality, rigor, and suitability for the conference.
Contributions can be submitted to any of the two submission periods. Papers submitted to the first round of review can be recommended by the Program Committee to be accepted-as-is, accepted with minor revisions, undergo major revisions (and resubmit in the second round) or rejected. Recommendations for papers submitted in the second round are for accept, minor revisions, or reject.
Papers accepted at any of the two rounds with minor revisions will be given a specified period of time to perform the revisions and re-submit. The same reviewers will assess how well the revision requests have been addressed by the authors, and whether the final paper maintains or improves the level of contribution of the original submission. Revisions that significantly lessen the contribution of the work or that fail to adequately address the reviewers’ original concerns will result in the paper’s rejection. Papers not accepted in the first round can be resubmitted to the second one, indicating how the authors have improved the paper to address the reviewers’ criticisms. Papers not accepted in the second round but with a sufficient level of quality may be encouraged to be re-submitted next year, or alternatively as regular JOT articles, hence continuing their review process through the normal journal channels.
Papers will be published in the JOT journal as soon as they are accepted and one of their authors registers at the conference.
Artifacts are recommended, but not required, for the initial submission. Depending on the papers, reviewers may take the existence of artifacts as a positive signal about the work. Also depending on the papers, artifacts may be required as a condition for publication.
All accepted papers will be published as platinum open-access journal publication in JOT. At least one author for each accepted paper must register before the early registration deadline and present the paper during the conference. Failure to do so will result in the paper being withdrawn from the proceedings.
