MORSE 2019: 6th Workshop on Model-Driven Robot Software Engineering 2019

September 15, 2019-September 17, 2019 in Munich, Germany

Call for Papers

Submissions are encouraged, but not limited to, in the following topics:

Robotic Platforms: MDA, Models, Processes, and Tools - Hardware/Software Abstractions | Architectures | Metamodels - Code- and Application-Reuse | Managed Redundancy | Deployment - Variability in Robotic Systems | Self-Adaptive Systems | Evolution - Programming Languages | Paradigms | Models | DSLs - Metrics for Evaluation of Model-driven Approaches

Models for and Modelling in Robotics - Sensors and Actuators | Sensor Integration - Computer Vision and Image Processing | Recognition and Tracking - Knowledge Representation and Reasoning | Context Models - Ontologies and Conceptual Modeling - Localization, Mapping, and Navigation - Autonomous Robots | Robot Learning and Artificial Intelligence - Cooperative Perception | Planning | Task Allocation | Coordination - Robot Swarms | Multi-Agent Robotic Systems

Robot Ecosystems and Total Cost of Ownership - Product-Line Development | Robot Apps - End-User Customization | Multi-Tenancy

Model-Driven Quality Assurance of Robotic Systems - Verification | Validation | Testing | Simulation | Debugging | Profiling - Handling Emergent Behavior and Uncertainty | Software Qualities


Paper abstracts should be submitted electronically by July 5, 2019 via EasyChair ( Submitted papers should conform to the IEEE proceedings style.

Submissions to the workshop are possible in four categories: - full paper (10 pages) on original research, lessons learned from realizing an approach or experiences on transferring a research prototype into practice, - position papers (5 pages) covering a well-argued vision or position, - demo papers (2 pages) describing a demonstration to be shown at the workshop - artifact papers (2 pages) together with the artifact, which is of use to the community (e.g., a reusable case study or a challenging example)

Authors of accepted papers will be expected to attend the workshop. The accepted papers will be digitally published by IEEE in the MODELS 2019 Workshop Proceedings.
