Workshop in collaboration with 
The 23rd European Conference on Advances in Databases and Information Systems

ADBIS 2019
Bled - Slovenia, September 8-11, 2019

Programming has become a technique for everybody, especially for non-computer scientists. Programs became an essential part of modern infrastructure. Programming is nowadays a socio-material practice in most disciplines of science and engineering. Programs of the future must be understandable by all parties involved, must be accurate and precise enough for the task they support, and must support reasoning and controlled realisation and evolution at all levels of abstraction.

The workshop will discuss novel approaches to programming based on modelling approaches such as model-driven development (MDE, MDA, MDD) and conceptual-model programming and their future developments. In future, application engineers and scientists are going to develop and to use models instead of programming in the old style. A model may combine several facets at the same time and may thus have its structure where some facets support specific purposes and functions. A model is a well-formed, adequate, and dependable instrument that represents origins and that functions in utilisation scenarios. Its criteria of  well-formedness, adequacy, and dependability must be commonly accepted by its CoP within some context and correspond to the functions that a  model fulfils in utilisation scenarios. The model should be well-formed  according to some well-formedness criterion. As an instrument or more specifically an artefact a model comes with its background that is often given only in an implicit and hidden form and not explicitly explained.

Important notes

  1. The editors STRONGLY ENCOURAGE submissions in Latex. Having Latex papers would ease the process of producing the volume. Nonetheless, papers prepared in other word processing software are also welcome.
  2. ALL ADBIS Workshops papers must be prepared according to the CCIS template and Springer paper preparation rules, see: https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines
  3. The number of pages of a workshop paper must be between 6 and 12.
    Workshop paper submission: *May 17*
    Workshop paper acceptance notification: *June 10*
    Workshop paper camera ready: *June 23*
  5. The deadline for receiving camera ready papers, for ALL ADBIS workshops, is STRICT – *June 23, 2019*.
