Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by SCOPUS, Google Scholar, The DBLP Computer Science Bibliography, Semantic Scholar, Microsoft Academic, Engineering Index (EI) and Web of Science / Conference Proceedings Citation Index.

Scope

While software development has traditionally been more of an empirical art than an engineering discipline, this is slowly changing as software users demand from software engineers the same levels of system reliability and predictability that are achieved by engineers in other disciplines. The special session focuses on theoretical and practical aspects of Object Management Group’s Model-Driven Architecture, Model-Driven Software Development, Domain-Specific Languages based on models, Model-Driven Engineering, Model transformation and code generation, models for real-time and embedded systems, Models for SOA and web service design, Models for software product lines, and other Model-Driven Innovations for Software Engineering. All these closely-linked fields including Model-Driven Domain Analysis and Model-Driven Software Development are advancing rapidly as practitioners and theoreticians work together to create new techniques and extend understanding of how and why existing methods work (and also why they sometimes fail).The present sixth edition of the Special session on Model Driven Innovations for Software Engineering (MDI4SE 2020) follows the traditions of previous events (Barcelona, Spain 2015; Rome, Italy 2016; Porto, Portugal 2017; Funchal, Portugal 2018; Crete, Greece 2019). It aims to bring together academics, researchers and industrial partners to share innovative achievements and discuss on how to improve quality, reliability and effectiveness of IT products and services.

Scope

Software is designed and built primarily to solve human needs. However, many software systems have issues with cost overruns (badly captured requirements); hard-to-maintain and dangerous solutions (incorrect technology choice, usage or deployment); and hard-to-use software that does not meet users’ needs (poor understanding of user needs and poor design). Many of these problems can be traced to a lack of understanding and incorporation of end user human-centric issues. This special track will focus on showcasing emerging approaches to better incorporating the human aspect into software engineering processes, methods, techniques, and tools. This includes work focusing on better supporting the human aspects of stakeholders and end users of the software, such as age, gender, personality, emotions, language, disability, etc.
