Conceptual modeling is prime to the advance of advanced structures, since it offers the main communique skill among platforms builders, end-usersandcustomers.Conceptualmodelingprovideslanguages,methods and instruments to understandandrepresentthe applicationdomain;to elicitate,concep- alizeandformalizesystemrequirementsanduserneeds;tocommunicatesystems designs to all stakeholders; to officially confirm and validate method designs on excessive degrees of abstractions; and to lessen ambiguities in approach improvement. at the start, conceptual modeling mostly addressed data-intensive info s- tems and contributed to facts modeling and database software engineering. the realm of conceptual modeling has now matured to surround every kind of program parts equivalent to e-applications (including e-business and e-learning), web-based platforms (including the semantic net and ubiquitous systems), existence technology and geographic functions. the once a year overseas convention on Conceptual Modeling serves because the superior discussion board for featuring and discussing researchand purposes in all - eas associatedwith conceptual modeling. This year,the demand Papers solicited contributions facing logical and philosophical foundations of conceptual modeling, details modeling techniques together with ontologies, correctness in modeling, web-based and cellular details structures, semi-structured facts and XML, details and database integration, details retrieval, association andevaluation,designmethodologiesandtools,reuse,re-engineeringandreverse engineering, caliber coverage in conceptual modeling, conceptual switch and evolution, information warehousing and information mining, spatial and temporal modeling, enterprise approach and work?ow modeling, wisdom administration, necessities elicitation, and complicated applications.
