The Unified Modeling Language (UML), with its 14 different diagram types, is the de-facto standard modeling language for object-oriented software modeling and documentation. Since the various UML diagrams describe different views of one, and only one, software system under development, they strongly depend on each other in many ways. In other words, the UML diagrams describing a software system must be consistent. Inconsistencies among these diagrams may be a source of faults during software development and analysis. It is therefore paramount that these inconsistencies be detected, analyzed and – hopefully – fixed. The goal of this workshop was to gather input and feedbacks on UML consistency rules from the community. This workshop provided an opportunity for researchers who have been working in the area of UML consistency to interact with each other at a highly interactive venue, improve the body of knowledge on UML consistency rules and discuss ideas for further research in this area. This report summarizes details of the workshop and the results obtained that day.
