* New International Journal 
*     Software and System Modeling (SoSyM)

The new quarterly Springer journal titled
Software and System Modeling (SoSyM)
will be launched in Fall of 2002.

Information about the journal and a call for papers can be found

SoSyM is a quarterly international journal that focuses on theoretical
and practical issues pertaining to the development and
application of software and system modeling languages and techniques.
The aim of the journal is to publish high-quality works that further
understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of modeling languages and
techniques, present rigorous analyses of modeling experiences, and present
scalable modeling techniques and processes that facilitate high-quality
and economical development of software.

We invite authors to submit papers that discuss and analyze concerns
and experiences pertaining to software and system modeling languages,
techniques, tools, practices and other facets. The following are
some of the topic areas that are of interest:

 Methodological issues
 Development of modeling standards
 Formal syntax and semantics of modeling languages such as the UML
 Rigorous model-based analysis
 Model-based testing techniques
 Model composition and transformation
 Metamodeling techniques
 Measuring quality of models
 Generating test and code artifacts from models
 Case studies and experience reports with significant lessons learned
 Comparative analyses of modeling languages and techniques
 Scientific assessment of modeling practices

The submission process is continuously open. Details can be found at:
