Conceptual Modeling: Foundations and Applications
Essays in Honor of John Mylopoulos. Information Systems and Applications, incl. Internet/Web, and HCI 5600
This Festschrift volume, published in honor of John Mylopoulos on the occasion of his retirement from the University of Toronto, contains 25 high-quality papers, written by leading scientists in the field of conceptual modeling.
The volume has been divided into six sections. The first section focuses on the foundations of conceptual modeling and contains material on ontologies and knowledge representation. The four sections on software and requirements engineering, information systems, information integration, and web and services, represent the chief current application domains of conceptual modeling. Finally, the section on implementations concentrates on projects that build tools to support conceptual modeling. With its in-depth coverage of diverse topics, this book could be a useful companion to a course on conceptual modeling.

What Reviewers Are Saying
From the reviews:
"Collection of papers in honor of John Mylopoulos, an important contributor to many computer science fields. In recognition Mylopoulos' pioneering contributions to the conceptual modeling field, all 25 papers explore conceptual modeling as an important tool. ... While all of the contributions are of a high quality, `On Non-Functional Requirements in Software Engineering' is an excellent and readable overview of the field. ... these papers `are of lasting significance and could also be used to support a course on conceptual modeling." (M. D. Derk, ACM Computing Reviews, December, 2009)
