This book constitutes the refereed joint proceedings of eight international workshops held in conjunction with the 28th International Conference on Conceptual Modeling, ER 2009, in Gramado, Brazil, in November 2009.
The 33 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 100 submissions. Topics addressed by the workshops are active conceptual modeling of learning (ACM-L), conceptual modeling in the large (CoMoL), evolving theories of conceptual modeling (ETheCoM), workshop on foundations and practices of UML (FP-UML), joint international workshop on metamodels, ontologies, semantic technologies, and information systems for the semantic web (MOST-ONISW), quality of information systems (QoIS), requirements, Intentions and goals in conceptual modeling ( RIGiM) and semantic and conceptual issues in geographic information systems (SeCoGIS).
