Our paper "Partial Instances via Subclassing" has been accepted for publication at SLE'13

Our paper has been accepted for publication at SLE'13. The work explores the notion of partial instantiation, shows usefulness of partial instances in Object-Oriented Modeling (OOM), and presents the encoding of partial object diagrams as class diagrams via subclassing and refinement of multiplicity constraints. As a result, it allows any OOM language that has no native support for partial instances, to support them at the class level. The paper will be presented in Indianapolis next October.
