Runtime models enable the implementation of highly adaptive applications but also require a rethinking in the way we approach models. Metamodels of runtime models must be supplemented with additional runtime concepts that have an impact on the way how runtime models are built and reflected in the underlying runtime architectures. The goal of this work is the generalization of common concepts found in different approaches utilizing runtime models and the provision of a basis for their meta-modeling. After analyzing recent works dealing with runtime models, we present a meta-modeling process for runtime models. Based on a meta-metamodel it guides the creation of metamodels combining design time and runtime concepts.
