Towrite aprefacemeansthat wehave reachedtheendofthislongway, and that in some way all the incidences and problems have been overcome. We can now say that it is really a big pleasure for us to welcome all of you to the proceedings of CAiSE 2005 which was held in Porto. CAiSE 2005 was the seventeenth in the series of International Conferences on Advanced Information Systems. Enforcing its tradition, since the late 1990s the CAiSE conferences have provided a forum for the presentation and exchange of research results and practical experiences within the ?eld of advanced infor- tionsystemsengineering.In2005,theconferencewashostedbytheFaculdadede Engenharia da Universidade do Porto, Portugal, going back to southern Europe, in particular to the Iberian peninsula, where CAiSE 1997 was held in Barcelona. The conference theme of CAiSE 2005 was “Improving Communication and Understanding — Systems and Citizens.” Behind this theme, we ?nd the fact that the Internet has been changing societies and economies, and the way - stitutions and businesses operate has evolved rapidly. Most citizens are now - pected to interact directly with technology-based systems without direct human intermediation, usingdi?erentinterfaceappliances.Moreover,manyinformation systems interact with each other with limited human supervision. The Internet and its infrastructure play a critical role in this evolution, and it is of the utmost importance that semantic aspects are taken into consideration on a sound basis.

About the author (2005)

Oscar Pastor is Professor for object-oriented development methods at the Valencia University of Technology, Spain. He has taught software engineering for more than 10 years, his research during that time focusing on object-oriented conceptual modeling, requirements engineering, Web development, and model-based software production. He has headed prestigious scientific events like the World-Wide Web Conference in 2007 (Web Engineering Track) and the International Conference on Conceptual Modeling in 2005. In addition, he is the brain behind the OlivaNova Model Execution, an advanced MDA-based set of tools that produces a final software product starting from a conceptual schema where the system requirements are captured.

Juan Carlos Molina is Research and Development Manager for CARE Technologies S.A., the company that develops the OlivaNova Model Execution set of tools which fully support the MDA-based, conceptual model-centric software development approach described in this book.
