[Dbworld] Extended submission date CFP: 3rd International Conference on Global E-Security, (ICGeS'07)

Apologies for cross posting
Thanks to many of you who have submitted before the deadline.

As many requested to extend the submission deadline, therefore the committee has decided to extend the

Please see below the revised dates.

We have now started the review of the papers we have received by the deadline.

3rd International Conference on Global E-Security (ICGeS’07)
18-20 April 2007
London, England

Following the successful, ICGeS-06 in April 2006, we have much pleasure in announcing the 3rd
International Conference on Global E-Security (ICGeS-07).

The Annual International Conference on Global E-Security was set up to establish dialogue between
crime-fighting agencies, the security industry, researchers and experts to create a platform from
which e-security can be examined from several global perspectives.

The Annual International Conference on Global e-Security (ICGeS) aims to establish a platform in which
security issues can be examined from several global perspectives through dialogue between academics,
students, government representatives, chief executives, security professonals, and research
scientists from the United Kingdom and from around the globe. 
ICGeS provides an ideal and unique venue for researchers and practitioners to engage in debate on variuos
security related issues, including the measures governments must take to protect the security of
information on the Internet, the implications of cyber-crime in large corporations and individuals,
and how cyber-crime can be addressed.

[Dbworld] CFP: ICDE/AIMS07 (ICDE Workshop on Ambient Intelligence, Media, and Sensing)

Call for Papers for AIMS 2007 
(Submission Date: Dec. 1st, 2006)
Int. Workshop on Ambient Intelligence, Media, and Sensing 
(associated with the Int. Conference on 
                          Data Engineering - ICDE)
April 20, 2007,  Istanbul, Turkey

The first Ambient Intelligence, Media, and Sensing (AIMS) workshop,
collocated with ICDE 2007 conference, focuses on the data management
challenges associated with the design of media-rich ubiquitous

Pervasive systems, which can provide situation-aware services to
users, require cognitive capabilities transparently embedded in the
surroundings to (a) continuously sense user needs, status, and the
context, (b) filter and fuse multitude of real-time media data, and
(c) react by appropriately adapting the environment. Thus, AIMS07 will
focus on enabling technologies for the emerging field of
situation-aware, media-enriched ambient intelligence, which integrates
sensing, data processing, decision making, and response mechanisms
into immediate surroundings.

Fundamental challenges in deploying media-enriched ubiquitous systems
involve not only the development of appropriate sensing technologies,
but more importantly the design of an environment which can process,
integrate, and leverage the sensed data in real time and in a

[Dbworld] Final CFP: JDM Special Issue on UML Topics

extended by two months.  The initial submission will be due on December 4, 2006.

Special Issue on UML Topics

Dinesh Batra, Florida International University

We invite contributions that address requirements, analysis, design, technical, usability, and
organizational issues related to the use of Unified Modeling Language (UML), which has had a dramatic
impact on the way we view systems development.  It is widely acknowledged that UML has become the de facto
standard for modeling object-oriented software development.

However, some researchers justifiably claim that UML suffers from a number of limitations.  UML has been
found to be a difficult language for novices.  There seem to be too many diagrams, and there is limited
research that reveals what diagrams are more popular.  If only a few
diagrams are popular, should there be a UML lite for beginners?  There are only a few techniques and
processes that describe usage of UML.  For example, although the syntax of a sequence diagram is quite
obvious, there is practically no research explaining how it can be taught to novice designers.  Can a
novice designer discern when to use the state machine diagram?  The relationship between UML and data
modeling is not explicit. There is a need to model business constraints in a natural way.  Is the object
constraint language (OCL) understandable to a novice designer? There are few empirical studies
involving UML.  For example, there is little empirical support that indicates that UML facilitates
reuse.  Such issues need systematic research.
