*Christine Pappelau (Berlin)*
*Roman Spolia in 3D: High Resolution Leica 3D Laser-scanner meets
ancient building structures*


Rome: a city with a long history to be read on the structures of its
buildings. Precious materials were taken from ancient monuments and
re-used for early Christian, medieval or Renaissance buildings. An high
resolution laser scanner creates 3D models with exact measurements--
identification of spolia by newest scientific means.

The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.

 Modelling is THE central task in informatics. Models are used to
 capture, analyse, understand, discuss, evaluate, specify, design,
 simulate, validate, test, verify and implement systems. Modelling needs
 an adequate repertoire of concepts, formalisms, languages, techniques
 and tools. This enables addressing distributed, concurrent and complex

 Objects, components, and agents are fundamental units to organise
 models. They are also fundamental concepts of the modelling process.
 Even though software engineers intensively use models based on these
 fundamental units, and models are the subjects of theoretical research,
 the relations and potential mutual enhancements between theoretical and
 practical models have not been sufficiently investigated. There is
 still the need for better modelling languages, standards and tools.
 Important research areas are for example UML, BPEL, Petri nets, process
 algebras, or different kinds of logics. Application areas like business
 processes, (Web) services, production processes, organisation of
 systems, communication, cooperation, cooperation, ubiquity, mobility
 etc. will support the domain dependent modelling perspectives.

 Therefore, the workshop addresses all relations between theoretical
 foundations of models on the one hand and objects, components, and
 agents on the other hand with respect to modelling in general. The
 intention is to gather research and application directions to have a
 lively mutual exchange of ideas, knowledge, viewpoints, and

 The multiple perspectives on modelling and models in informatics are
 most welcome, since the presentation of them will lead to intensive
 discussions. Also the way objects, components, and agents are use to
 build architectures / general system structures and executing units /
 general system behaviours will provide new ideas for other areas.
 Therefore, we invite a wide variety of contributions, which will be
 reviewed by the PC-members who reflect important areas and perspectives
 for the Modelling of Objects, Components, and Agents (MOCA).
