Background:

 

The field of information systems analysis and design includes numerous modeling methods and notations (e.g. ER, ORM, UML, DFDs, BPMN, EPC), that are typically evolving. Even with some attempts to standardize (e.g. UML for object-oriented design), new modeling methods are constantly being introduced, many of which differ only marginally from existing approaches. These ongoing changes significantly impact the way information systems are being analyzed and designed in practice.

 

This workshop focuses on exploring, evaluating, and enhancing current information modeling methods and methodologies. Though the need for such studies is well recognized, there is a paucity of such research in the literature. The objective of EMMSAD’06 is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in modeling methods in systems analysis and design to meet, and exchange research ideas and results. It also provides the participants an opportunity to present their research papers and experience reports, and to take part in open discussions. EMMSAD’06 is the eleventh in a very successful series of EMMSAD workshops, previously held in Heraklion, Barcelona, Pisa, Heidelberg, Stockholm, Interlaken, Toronto, Velden, Riga and Porto.  

 

This workshop will provide a platform for researchers and practitioners to share and discuss research methodologies and results. The focus of the workshop is on theoretical, empirical or case-based exploration of modeling methods and methodologies.  The topics of interest include modeling (in a system analysis and design context) of systems in general:

 

and/or specific strategies for modeling, including (but not limited to):

 

and/or modeling of specific aspects, including (but not limited to):

 

and/or modeling in the context of specific classes of systems, including (but not limited to):

 

Important dates (2006):

 

Deadline for papers (received):  February 21

Notification of acceptance:       March 17

Camera-ready copies:              April 7

Workshop:                              June 5-6

 

Submission guidelines:

 

The workshop accepts two types of submissions—Completed Research and Research-In-Progress. Completed research papers should include analysis of data and discussion on research findings. Research-in-progress papers report on research that is well under way with preliminary results available at the time of the conference. Please use the following format for your submissions:

 

 

 

 

If you have problems using the conference management system, e-mail your paper as an attachment in Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF format to krogstie@idi.ntnu.no

 

Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings, which will be available at the workshop, and should use the Springer LNCS style, see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html . Note that the length of the final papers will be dependant on the number of accepted papers. One should not expect to have more than 10 pages for the final version of a full paper.  Top papers in the completed research category will be fast-tracked (after extension and enhancement) for consideration at the Journal of Database Management (JDM).  Selected papers from the workshop will also be considered for inclusion as book chapters in the volume “Advanced Topics in Database Research”.
