Call for papers: International Workshop on Sustainability and Modeling (SusMod) – co-located with MODELS’24

Sustainability is becoming a key characteristic of modern systems. While this trend has been long recognized, rigorous formal methods for assessing sustainability, reasoning about often contradicting sustainability properties, and involving the human in this process are missing.
This workshop aims to unearth visceral links between sustainability and MDE, and that, in both directions: MDE in support of sustainable systems engineering, and sustainability of MDE techniques.


22–24 September, 2024
Linz, Austria
Co-located with this year’s MODELS Conference.


-MDE for sustainability
   -Modeling languages, formalisms, and methods to tackle the complexity of sustainability through the mechanism of abstraction;
   -Code generation and model interpretation for sustainability metrics;
   -Multi-paradigm, multi-view, and multi-level modeling for sustainability;
   -Collaborative modeling for sustainability.
-Sustainability of MDE
   -Technical sustainability, e.g., driven by model evolution, model-based reconfiguration;
   -Environmental sustainability, e.g., energy-efficiency of model transformation, self-adaptation for minimized environmental footprint;
   -Economic sustainability, e.g., reuse and re-purposing of models;
   -Social sustainability, e.g., inclusive modeling practices, participatory modeling in diverse environments, human factors in modeling.
-Digitalization for sustainability: smart systems, digital twins, twin transition, cyber-physical social systems, intelligent ecosystems.
-Organizational aspects, maturity models, and lifecycle models, synergies between circular economy and systems engineering.
-Applications, case studies, tools, industry reports, patterns and catalogs.
