"Measuring the Explicitness of Modeling Concepts in Metamodels";
Talk: ACM/IEEE 9th International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems, Genova, Italy; 2006-10-01 - 2006-10-06.

English abstract:
Metamodels represent the abstract syntax of modeling languages.
However, they do not explicitly define which modeling concepts the
user can use in the notation of the language. Thus, simply
counting the number of classes in the metamodel is not appropriate
for altering the number of modeling concepts available to the
user. This paper addresses this issue with the definition of a
metric for describing the ratio between the number of concepts
explicitly represented by classes in the abstract syntax and the
concepts available in the notation. In particular, this metric is
important when bridging two modeling languages, because the hidden
concepts in the abstract syntax have to be made explicit in the
transformation rules.
