In order to facilitate the comparison of transformation tools, we are soliciting potential case studies. If you have a suitable case study, please describe it shortly but as detailed as needed and submit it to the online submission system. Cases that have already been solved using a particular tool (or general purpose programming language) are also very welcome. Please include a reference solution for such cases to support the evaluation of the correctness of submitted solutions.
Our program committee will select a small, but representative set of case studies to be used for the contest. Case descriptions should answer the following questions:
Please submit at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ttc2014. Your submission should include (i) a case description (in PDF format) answering the above questions and (ii) a ZIP archive that contains all test artifacts as well as the evaluation / ranking instrument.
The deadline for cases is 26 Feb 2014.
Following the selection of a subset of the submitted cases by our programme committee, the following phases will be conducted.
Phase 2: Case solution submission. All those who like to participate in the contest will be asked to choose one or more case studies, take their favorite transformation tool and submit their solutions. A separate call for solutions will be distributed, after the cases have been selected.
Phase 3: Open peer review. The solution reviewing before the workshop will be done by other solution submitters. All solution submitters have to review three other solutions to the case that they have addressed. These reviews will not be anonymous, since these reviewers ideally will also be the opponents at the workshop. The purpose of the peer reviewing is that the participants get as much insight into the competitor's solutions as possible and also to raise potential problems. Case submitters should be available at this stage to resolve conflicting interpretations (if any) about the case description.
Phase 4: Workshop and live contest. Besides the presentations of the submitted solutions, the workshop will comprise a live contest. For more details (such as example cases and solutions from previous editions), please consult the TTC website: http://www.transformation-tool-contest.eu
