The DSM workshop is one of longest running series of workshops at SPLASH/OOPSLA.

The first DSM Workshop was offered at OOPSLA 2001. This would be the 20th anniversary of the workshop. We would love to celebrate this anniversary with another offering at SPLASH! Our last DSM workshop at SPLASH was in 2019 in Athens, Greece.

Domain-Specific Modeling (DSM) languages provide a viable and time-tested solution for continuing to raise the level of abstraction, and thus productivity, beyond coding, making systems and software development faster and easier.

In DSM, the models are constructed using concepts that represent things in the application domain, not concepts of a given programming language. The modeling language follows the domain abstractions and semantics, allowing developers to perceive them-selves as working directly with domain concepts. Together with frameworks and platforms, DSM can automate a large portion of software production.

The goals of the workshop are to share experiences and demonstrate the DSM solutions that have been developed by both researchers and practitioners, identify research questions and continuing to build the community.
