Multi-Level Modelling (Dagstuhl Seminar 17492)

Authors: João Paulo A. Almeida, Ulrich Frank, and Thomas Kühne

Published in: Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 7, Issue 12 (2018)


Abstract
This report documents the program and the outcomes of Dagstuhl Seminar 17492 "Multi-Level Modelling". This seminar brought together researchers and industry practitioners from the fields of conceptual modeling, ontologies, and formal foundations to discuss and share the benefits of Multi-Level Modelling (MLM), to develop an agreement on MLM terminology and scope, and to drive future research directions in MLM. Some foundational presentations were given by the seminar organizers to ground the discussions and provide an initial set of open questions which would lead to the formation of the working groups. In addition, six industry representatives gave talks explaining the needs, challenges, utility, and possible issues with adoption of MLM in industry. Based on the original seminar goals, the talks, and the resulting discussions, four working groups were established to investigate: the formal and ontological "Foundations"of MLM; promising "Applications" and potential evaluation criteria for MLM methods; the "Dynamic Aspects" of MLM, such as processes and behaviour; and, the use of and impact on "Model Transformations" in the context of MLM.

Supporting Organizational Efficiency and Agility: Models, Languages and Software Systems (Dagstuhl Seminar 16192)

Authors: Tony Clark, Ulrich Frank, and Vinay Kulkarni

Published in: Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 6, Issue 5 (2016)


Abstract
Organizations are complex systems that need to respond to a variety of changes while operating in a dynamic environment. They involve multiple stakeholders each having a domain-specific perspective that relies on concepts and languages relative to individual information-centric processes, which may lead to undesirable side-effects such as scattered and fractured knowledge about goals, strategies, operational processes etc. This inter-disciplinary seminar analyses how the design, operation and maintenance of organizations can be supported not only with managing their resources and processes efficiently, but also with coping with the digital transformation.

Open Models as a Foundation of Future Enterprise Systems (Dagstuhl Seminar 12131)

Authors: Robert B. France, Ulrich Frank, Andreas Oberweis, Matti Rossi, and Stefan Strecker

Published in: Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 2, Issue 3 (2012)


Abstract
This report documents the program and the outcomes of Dagstuhl Seminar 12131 ``Open Models as a Foundation of Future Enterprise Systems''. Research on open models introduces a new model of collaboration among researchers, developers, and prospective users of reference enterprise models-leading to the prospect of shaping future enterprise systems. This seminar brought together researchers and practitioners with expertise in a broad range of fields including conceptual modelling, model-driven engineering, enterprise systems, software architectures, and modelling tool development. The seminar mixed short presentations on the attendees' perspectives on open models with keynote presentations and working groups on selected research issues. Topics discussed include the shape of future enterprise systems amalgamated with open reference enterprise models, business domains to be addressed in first open models, requirements towards a technical infrastructure as well as organisational issues of open model initiatives. The seminar's discussions benefitted from the different perspectives of attendees on the common topic, raised important new questions on open models, and brought to light overlooked aspects important to future research activities.
