Metamodeling has proven
to be an important and successful technology in a large variety of application
areas such as (domain-specific) language definition, process definition,
model transformation, data integration, and repositories. While these
areas use more than one interpretation of the notion of “metamodeling”,
and further alternatives exist, for instance regarding “multi-level
domain modeling”, they are all based on the premise that there is
value in explicitly modeling the definitions of artifacts to make these
definitions flexible or the subject of further analysis. Even though a
lot of progress has been made in clarifying the notion of “metamodeling”,
supporting it with a range of different mechanisms, and applying it successfully
in tools that provide end user value, much remains to be addressed and
to be reported on.
The Journal on Software
and Systems Modeling
therefore invites original, high-quality submissions
for its theme issue on “Metamodeling” to appear in 2007, focusing
on topics related to metamodeling, including
| ||e.g., theory, principles, and definition of metamodeling
| ||e.g., mechanisms for creating and controlling metamodeling hierarchies
| ||e.g., novel forms of reaping benefits from metamodeling
| ||e.g., advances in supporting and/or applying metamodeling with tools
