A MODELS'15 workshop
28.09.2015, Ottawa, Canada
Since modeling is an intrinsically human enterprise, many of the questions related to modeling can only be answered by empirical studies employing human factors. This new workshop series aspires to become a venue for early stage empirical research involving human factors in modeling. Our goal is to improve the state of the science and professionalism in empirical research in the Model Based Engineering community. Typical examples of such questions might consider the usability of a certain approach such as a method or language, or the emotional states or personal judgements of modelers.
We invite submissions regarding empirical studies of the following aspects:
Other topics that fit into the general frame of this workshop are also welcome.
We solicit three types of submissions, each with their specific quality and review criteria:
All of these may be submitted either as a short paper (up to 4 pages) or a long paper (6-8 pages), depending on their ambition and quality as determined in the review process. Submissions should mark clearly in their title, to which category they pertain.
All accepted submissions will be discussed openly in the workshop. Publication requires at least one of the quthors to be present at the workshop. We particularly encourage researchers that need to design a study but lack experience in this field to come forward and present study designs so these may be discussed and improved, leading to better quality research.
Submissions must conform to the IEEE Formatting Guidelines:
All submissions must be uploaded through EasyChair.
Note: The workshop will take place in the Laurentian room.
