1st IEEE International Workshop on Communicating Business Process and Software Models Quality, Understandability, and Maintainability taking place on September 23rd, 2013 in Eindhoven, the Netherlands in conjunction with the 29th International Conference on Software Maintenance Eindhoven, the Netherlands, 22-28 September 2013
In recent years, the fact that models are a means for communication gained more attention in research on process modeling and software modeling. Both communities discuss issues related to models, modeling languages, and their use and perception, such as model understandability, complexity of modeling languages, actual usage of language features, cognitive aspects, human perception and subjective perspectives on models, and related issues.
These topics are extremely important for the adaption of modeling languages in practice, yet the attention from the research community is still limited. The CPSM 2013 workshop shall provide a forum for researchers and practitioners actively working on quality, usability and maintainability of software and process models. The workshop supports the exchange of ideas, challenges, and insights from two similar domains with the aim of raising awareness of the important “soft skills” of modeling languages. The workshop will give room to present research results, position papers, case studies and share experiences and ideas in panel discussions.
