SICSA Modelling and Abstraction Workshop 2012
|= Modelling: Challenges and Perspectives =|
Stirling, 11th June 2012

The SICSA* ModAbs 2012 Workshoph is a connections and directions workshop for all those interested in Modelling, under the SICSA Modelling and Abstraction research theme**.
The workshop aims to disseminate ongoing research, stimulate further collaborations and discuss the current challenges in the field of modelling and funding opportunities. We are also interested in potential cross-contaminations with other research communities.

The workshop is organised around three technical and one EPSRC invited talks, a few contributed short talks, poster presentations, a Modelling Exercise and a discussion section. Further details on the web page.
Invited speakers:

|= Prof. Kim G. Larsen, Aalborg University
|= Prof. David J. Pym, University of Aberdeen
|= EPSRC Talk: Dr. Christina Turner, EPSRC
|= SICSA Distinguished Visitor, Prof. Alberto Policriti, Università di Udine

Contributions about ongoing and mature results, as well overviews of groups’ research are sought. All the proposed contributions are expected to be presented as a poster. Selected contributions will be invited for a short oral presentation.

PhD students are particularly encouraged to submit contributions. A number of slots is reserved for their contributions. A book of abstracts will be published as a Technical Report by Computing Sciences and Mathematics at the University of Stirling. For each contribution, a short abstract should be submitted preferably by 1st of June.

Modelling Exercise:

The Modelling Exercise consists of the development of a suitable model of a proposed system and the use of the model to better understand the system. The Modelling Exercise will be carried out by teams, free to use their preferred tools and modelling approach. Teams will preferably be formed across different existing research groups. Selected best results will be presented at the workshop, voted by the audience and prized.
