John Mylopoulos has made ground-breaking contributions to three areas of computer science: arti?cial intelligence, information systems and software - gineering. His contributions have been celebrated on multiple occasions. First, Misha Missiko? organized a one-day symposium on conceptual modeling on June 17, 2003,inVelden,Austria,tocelebrateJohn’s60thbirthday.Second,JohnTsotsos led the organization of a day of celebrations on June 27th, 2009 in Toronto, Canada,on the occasionof John’s retirementfrom the Departmentof Computer Science of the University of Toronto. This book grew out of our desire to honor and thank John by presenting him at the Toronto reunion with a volume that re?ects his belief that conceptual modeling is becoming a fundamental skill that will be a necessary tool for all futurecomputerscientists.Thepapersinthis bookarewrittenbyleading?gures in technical areas that intersect with conceptual modeling, as well as by John’s closest collaborators.We are pleased to present this collection of papers that we believe are of lasting signi?cance and could also be used to support a course on conceptual modeling. We are extremely grateful to the eminent authors, who have contributed such high-quality material.

Product Description


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)

From the Back Cover

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.
