RUB Scope of the workshop • Explore current research and approaches on the relationship(s) between models and collaboration – Collaborative modeling – Interacting with models (involvement, motivation) – Using models for coordination and collaboration • Explore model usage in practice – Best-practices – Research on modeling and model usage • Build a research agenda and follow-up actions on this workshop 4
