The 2nd International Workshop on Active Conceptual Modeling of Learning (ACM-L 2009)

The ACM-L Workshop intends to bring together researchers, developers, and users to exchange ideas and report findings of different approaches for modeling continuous learning from past experiences, capturing knowledge from transitions between system states, and recognizing new types of knowledge. The goal is to provide a theoretical framework for active conceptual modeling of learning based on multi-level, multi-dimension, multi-perspective knowledge and human cognition for developing a learning-base system to support cognitive services/capability development and a large class of applications.

CoMoL 2009 - Conceptual Modeling in the Large

This workshop targets on the systematic development, exploration and foundation of theory and practice of conceptual modeling in the large. Nowadays conceptual modeling in the small has become state of the art for specialists and educated application engineers. Conceptual modeling in the large has been mainly developed within companies that handle large and complex applications. It covers a large variety of aspects such as models of structures, of business processes, of interaction among applications and with users, of components of systems, and of abstractions or of derived models such as data warehouses and OLAP applications. Conceptual modeling in the large is typically performed by many modelers and teams. It also includes architectural aspects within applications. At the same time quality, configuration and versioning of models developed so far become an issue.

Evolving Theories of Conceptual Modelling (ETheCoM)

The ETheCoM workshop tries to bring together researchers with an interest in theoretical foundations of conceptual modelling. The emphasis is on evolving theories that address mathematical and logical underpinnings of new developments in conceptual modelling, e.g. addressing service-oriented software systems, personalisation of Information Systems and services, network-centric and web-based applications, biomedical applications, games and entertainment, etc. We are interested in precisely worked-out semantics, in particular with respect to constraints, and in the usage of such semantics for the reasoning and inferencing about model properties.

The Fifth International Workshop on Foundations and Practices of UML (FP-UML)

FP-UML intends to be an international forum for exchanging ideas on the best and new practices of the UML in modeling and system developments. Papers focused on the application on the UML in new domains and new experiences with UML 2.0, and foundations, theory, and UML 2.0 extensions are also highly encouraged. As UML 2.0 is oriented towards the software design driven by models, papers applying the Model Driven Architecture (MDA) or the Model Driven Engineering (MDE) to specific domains are also highly encouraged. The workshop will be a forum for researchers, analyzers, designers, and users who use the UML to develop systems and software.

The Joint International Workshop on Metamodels, Ontologies, Semantic Technologies, and Information Systems for the Semantic Web (MOST-ONISW 2009)

The objective of MOST-ONISW 2009 is to bring together researchers and practitioners in Information Management interested in (1) the relation between ontology and information models, (2) theoretical topics such as formal ontology, formal logics, conceptual modelling, computational linguistics, cognitive science, knowledge representation, the Semantic Web, and MDE (Model-Driven Engineering), and (3) more practical topics as a result of applications of ontologies in diverse fields, such as knowledge management, informatics for education, ontology-based information and database integration, e-commerce, information processing (retrieval, classification and extraction), and search engine, to mention just a few.

The fourth International Workshop on Quality of Information Systems (QoIS 2009)

The QoIS 2009 workshop intends to cover all areas related to information systems quality: data quality, information quality, system quality as well as model, method, process, knowledge and environment quality. The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers and industry developers working on various aspects of information systems quality, in order to exchange research ideas and results and discuss about them. We want to promote research on information systems and conceptual model quality to the broader conceptual modeling research community attending ER 2009.

3rd International Workshop on Requirements, Intentions and Goals in Conceptual Modeling (RIGiM'09)

The workshop aims to provide a forum for discussing the interplay between requirements engineering and conceptual modeling, and in particular, to investigate how goal- and intention-driven approaches help in conceptualising purposeful systems.

3rd International Workshop on Semantic and Conceptual Issues in GIS (SeCoGIS 2009)

The SeCoGIS workshop is intended to bring together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners carrying out research and development in geographic information systems. The aim is to stimulate discussions on the integration of conceptual modeling and semantics into current geographic information systems, and how this will benefit the end users. The workshop is particularly geared towards original research contributions and practical experiences of conceptual modeling and semantic web technologies for GIS, fostering interdisciplinary discussions in all aspects of these two fields, and will highlight future trends in this area. The workshop will be organized in a way to highly stimulate interaction amongst the participants.
