Workshop Aims and Objectives

The Internet is changing the way businesses operate. Organizations are
using the web to deliver their goods and services, to find trading
partners, and to link their existing (maybe legacy) applications to other
applications. Web services are rapidly becoming the enabling technology 
of today's e-business and e-commerce systems, and will soon transform
the web as it is now into a distributed computation and application

On the other hand, e-business as an emerging concept is also impacting
software applications, the everyday services landscape, and the way how we do
things in almost each domain of our life. There is already a body of experience

Conceptual Modeling Quality: CFP IWCMQ'03


Second International Workshop on Conceptual Modeling Quality (IWCMQ03)
October 13, 2003
Chicago, Illinois, USA
URL: http://alarcos.inf-cr.uclm.es/iwcmq03/indexiwcmq03.htm

Held in conjunction with the 22nd International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER03) URL: http://conceptualmodeling.org/er2003
October 13-16, 2003

A keynote address will be delivered by a top researcher in the field of conceptual modeling quality


Quality in conceptual modeling has been a topic of research since the early nineties.  After a relatively
quiet period in the mid-nineties, a renewed interest in conceptual modeling quality issues is observed. 
The theme of IWCMQ'03 is 'Quality assurance of modeling processes'.  The workshop intends to provide a
forum for researchers and practitioners working on approaches, frameworks, methods, techniques,
guidelines, and tools for measuring, predicting, evaluating, controlling, and improving the quality
of conceptual modeling processes, facilities and products.
Conceptual modeling fulfills a bridge function with other disciplines such as business process
(re)engineering, requirements engineering, information systems engineering, software
engineering, web application/site design, and database design.  Therefore the workshop is not limited
to a particular flavor of conceptual modeling.  It is open to work related to any type of 'real-world'
requirements modeling and analysis (e.g. domain modeling, business/enterprise modeling, conceptual
data modeling, process modeling, conceptual modeling of E-business/web-based applications).
The concrete objective of IWCMQ'03 is to sketch a field-overlapping state-of-the-art of quality in
conceptual modeling, identify possible paths of collaboration, and point out future research directions.
We cordially invite researchers and practitioners to submit original research, survey or experience
papers to IWCMQ'03.  All accepted papers will be published in a volume of the Springer-Verlag LNCS series,

	The land of roses, Bulgaria, is a small country of ancient culture, scenic beauty, 
friendly people, hospitality and warmth. Bulgaria is situated in south-eastern Europe. It 
occupies the central part of Balkan Peninsula on both sides of the Balkan Range (the 
Balkans), from which the peninsula has taken its name. The greater part of the northern 
border with Romania passes along the Danube, and the eastern border is the Black sea. 
The land borders with Yugoslavia and Macedonia to the west, with Turkey to the south-
east, and with Greece to the south. The Black sea coast on its East border is famous for its 
fine sand beaches, and perfect temperatures of water and air. It has a 380 km marvelous 
stretch of beaches, calm and safe sea, clear water and healthy air, fine golden sand and 
natural dunes, mineral water springs, blue flag winning resorts, holiday villages and 
campsites. Average air temperature in the summer is about 28°C, water temperature - 
25°C. There are more than 280 hours of sunshine in June. The two international airports

Deadline Extension: SIAM Workshop on Data Mining for Counter Terrorism

Note:  The deadline for paper submission has been extended to
February 10, 2003.

Workshop on Data Mining for Counter Terrorism and Security
May 3, 2003
Cathedral Hill Hotel 
San Francisco, CA 
To be Held in Conjunction with the 
Third SIAM International Conference on Data Mining (SDM 2003) 

Theme Statement
The tragedy of September 11 had immeasurable and permanent effects on the United States and the rest of the
world and brought issues of security and defense to the forefront.  To help prevent such disasters, a
successful security program would include provisions to secure borders, the transportation sector,
and critical infrastructure.  A critical enabler of such a program would be the ability to synthesize and
analyze data from multiple sources and to reason in highly uncertain situations.  

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss ways in which data mining and machine learning can be used to
analyze data from numerous sources of high-complexity for the purpose of preventing future terrorist
activity.  This is inherently a multidisciplinary activity, drawing from areas such as intelligence,
international relations, and security methodology.  From the data mining and machine-learning world
this activity draws from scalable text mining, data fusion, data visualization, data warehousing
methods.  Papers in these areas with clear application to the issues of counter terrorism are
particularly solicited.
