  • Workshop Theme and Goals

    The 6th International Workshop Series on Comparison and Versioning of Software Models (CVSM'15) brings together researchers and practitioners in the field of model versioning. It aims at collecting and consolidating experience gained in this technology, at distinguishing unresolved from solved questions, at identifying reasons why questions have remained unsolved, and at identifying new technical challenges which emerged after first practical applications.

    The main topics of the CVSM are model comparison and differencing, model patching and model merging.

    This includes, but is not limited to, subtopics like
    • Algorithms and Concepts
      • comparison of models (algorithms, heuristics, complexity, quality, syntactic vs. semantic differencing)
      • application- / domain-specific differencing
      • (structured) merging and patching of models (conflicts, conflict resolution)
      • meta-models for differences
      • co-evolution of models and meta-models
      • model, schema and ontology matching
      • evolution of software product lines
    • Tooling
      • visual presentation of differences
      • management of model variants
      • architectures for model versioning tools
      • usablity of model versioning tools
      • integration of text- and graph-based tools for differencing and merging
    • Applications and Case Studies
      • requirements on difference tools
      • assessment of existing technologies and tools
      • quality aspects of model versioning and differencing
      • model corpora and model benchmarks
