Graphs as Models Conference 2015

Graphs are used as models in all areas of computer science: examples are state space graphs, control flow graphs, syntax graphs, UML-type models of all kinds, network layouts, social networks, dependency graphs, and so forth. Used to model a particular phenomenon or process, graphs are then typically analyzed to find out properties of the modelled subject, or transformed to construct other types of models.

Graphs as Models combines the strengths of two pre-existing workshop series: GT-VMT (Graph Transformation and Visual Modelling Techniques) and GRAPHITE(Graph Inspection and Traversal Engineering), but also solicits research from other related areas, such as Social Network Analysis.

Graphs as Models is a satellite workshop of ETAPS 2015.


This workshop seeks to attract and stimulate research on the techniques for graph analysis, inspection and transformation, on a general level rather than in any specific domain. Thus, the concept of a graph (in its many guises) is central; contributions should address scenarios for the use of graphs in a modelling context that potentially transcend specific settings and can be applied across domains. Good, well-known examples of such techniques are model checking and graph transformation; but we welcome contributions on any of the following (non-exhaustive) list of topics:


This is a two-day workshop programmed as a mixture of:
