The objective of the workshops held in conjunction with ER 2002, the 21st International Conference on Conceptual Modeling, was to give participants the opportunitytopresentanddiscussemerginghottopics,thusaddingnewpersp- tives to conceptual modeling. To meet this objective, we selected the following four workshops: – 2nd InternationalWorkshop on Evolution and Changein Data Management (ECDM 2002) – ER/IFIP8. 1 Workshop on Conceptual Modelling Approaches to Mobile - formation Systems Development (MobIMod 2002) – International Workshop on Conceptual Modeling Quality (IWCMQ 2002) – 3rd International Joint Workshop on Conceptual Modeling Approaches for E-business: a Web Service Perspective (eCOMO 2002) ER 2002 was organized so that there would be no overlap between the c- ference sessions and the workshops. This proceedings contains workshop papers that wererevisedby the authors following discussions during the conference. We are deeply indebted to the members of the organizing committees and program committees of these workshops for their hard work. July 2003 Antoni Oliv ́ e, Masatoshi Yoshikawa, and Eric S. K. Yu Workshop Co-chairs ER 2002 ECDM 2002 Change is a fundamental but sometimes neglected aspect of information and database systems. The management of evolution and change and the ability of database, information and knowledge-based systems to deal with change is an essential component in developing and maintaining truly useful systems. Many approachestohandlingevolutionandchangehavebeenproposedinvariousareas of data management, and this forum seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners from both more established areas and from emerging areas to look at this issue.

The purpose of this book is to disseminate the research results and best practice from researchers and practitioners interested in and working on modeling methods and methodologies. Though the need for such studies is well recognized, there is a paucity of such research in the literature. What specifically distinguishes this book is that it looks at various research domains and areas such as enterprise, process, goal, object-orientation, data, requirements, ontology, and component modeling, to provide an overview of existing approaches and best practices in these conceptually closely-related fields. *Note: This book is part of a series entitled "Advanced Topics in Database Research.

Experts agree that major advances will be achieved in the development of information systems when the successful integration of conceptual modeling, databases, and CASE has taken place. Although many conferences and journals are devoted to these three individual areas and volumes of collected papers report on work in each area, there is a serious lack of material which interrelates the three fields in a cohesive manner. This important work provides a single reference point for anyone wishing to understand how these three areas may dramatically influence the development of information systems in the future. Written by leading researchers in these fields, Conceptual Modeling, Databases, and CASE clearly demonstrates that there are different models and techniques in all three areas and develops a framework for examining these models and techniques across the three fields. The following important issues are addressed: influences of new conceptual models on CASE methods and tools; influences of new database technology on CASE architecture and information systems development; impact of new conceptual models on database functionality; and impact of data base technology on conceptual modeling. This valuable book provides a general discussion of research directions in each area, reviews contemporary approaches and critically examines the relationship of the approaches in each section in relation to the other two sections. The first section of the book will deal with advanced conceptual modeling approaches. The second section presents the new generation of database systems and the third section discusses new approaches to CASE from both methodological and tools perspectives.

Written in plain English and based on successful client engagements, Data Modeling of Financial Derivatives: A Conceptual Approach introduces new and veteran data modelers, financial analysts, and IT professionals to the fascinating world of financial derivatives. Covering futures, forwards, options, swaps, and forward rate agreements, finance and modeling expert Robert Mamayev shows you step-by-step how to structure and describe financial data using advanced data modeling techniques. The book introduces IT professionals, in particular, to various financial and data modeling concepts that they may not have seen before, giving them greater proficiency in the financial language of derivatives—and greater ability to communicate with financial analysts without fear or hesitation. Such knowledge will be especially useful to those looking to pick up the necessary skills to become productive right away working in the financial sector. Financial analysts reading this book will come to grips with various data modeling concepts and therefore be in better position to explain the underlying business to their IT audience. Data Modeling of Financial Derivatives—which presumes no advanced knowledge of derivatives or data modeling—will help you: Learn the best entity–relationship modeling method out there—Barker’s CASE methodology—and its application in the financial industry Understand how to identify and creatively reuse data modeling patterns Gain an understanding of financial derivatives and their various applications Learn how to model derivatives contracts and understand the reasoning behind certain design decisions Resolve derivatives data modeling complexities parsimoniously so that your clients can understand them intuitively Packed with numerous examples, diagrams, and techniques, this book will enable you to recognize the various design patterns that you are most likely to encounter in your professional career and apply them successfully in practice. Anyone working with financial models will find it an invaluable tool and career booster.

Data modeling is often seen only as a phase in the design of quality databases, but it is also essential to other requirements techniques such as workflow modeling and use cases. That’s because it ensures a common understanding of the things – the entities - that processes and applications deal with. Data Modeling: A Business-Oriented Approach to Concept Modeling introduces entity-relationship modeling from a non-technical perspective, provides tips and guidelines for the business analyst, and explores contextual, conceptual, and detailed modeling techniques that maximize user involvement. This book also gets into more advanced topics, such as enforcement of complex business rules, handling recurring patterns, dealing with existing databases or packaged applications, and other issues not covered in most data modeling titles. Some of the specific questions we address include: My users have been burned before by data modeling exercises, and they don’t want anything to do with it – is there anything I can do? How can I tell if a data model is actually the correct data model? How can I stay at the right level and not dive right into excruciating detail How does data modeling relate to process redesign or requirements definition - does it come before, after, or alongside? Is there a method that integrates them? I’m about to undertake a massive project – how can I make it manageable?

Reiner Anderl The Advanced Modelling part of the CAD*I project aimed at the development of a new generation of modelling techniques as a basic functionality of future CAD/CAM systems. The methodology and concepts for advanced modelling techniques, their availability in the communication interface of a CAD/CAM system and their influence on internal interfaces in the software architecture of a CAD/CAM system are fundamental results of advanced modelling work. These results form the basis for the development of a new generation of CAD/CAM systems which are called product modelling systems. CAD/CAM systems today mainly support the geometric description of a technical part or its description as a technical drawing. Advanced geometric modelling capabilities deal with parametric design functions embedded into CAD/CAM systems. However, development strategies for future CAD/CAM systems are directed toward the following: 1. The development of product modelling systems and 2. the development of integrated systems based on CAD, CAP (Computer Aided Planning), CAM and other CIM (Computer Integrated Manu facturing) functionalities.
