The purpose of this book is to disseminate the research results and best practice from researchers and practitioners interested in and working on modeling methods and methodologies. Though the need for such studies is well recognized, there is a paucity of such research in the literature. What specifically distinguishes this book is that it looks at various research domains and areas such as enterprise, process, goal, object-orientation, data, requirements, ontology, and component modeling, to provide an overview of existing approaches and best practices in these conceptually closely-related fields. *Note: This book is part of a series entitled Advanced Topics in Database Research".

Terry Halpin, (BSc, DipEd, BA, MLitStud, PhD) is a distinguished professor at Neumont University. His industry experience includes several years in data modeling technology at Asymetrix Corporation, InfoModelers Inc., Visio Corporation, and Microsoft Corporation. His doctoral thesis formalized object-role modeling (ORM/NIAM), and his current research focuses on conceptual modeling and conceptual query technology. He has authored over 150 technical publications and six books, including Information Modeling and Relational Databases and has co-edited four books on information systems modeling research. He is a member of IFIP WG 8.1 (Information Systems), an editor or reviewer for several academic journals, a regular columnist for the Business Rules Journal, and a recipient of the DAMA International Achievement Award for Education (2002) and the IFIP Outstanding Service Award (2006).

Keng Siau is the Chair of the Department of Business and Information Technology at the Missouri University of Science and Technology. He received his Ph.D. in Business Administration from the University of British Columbia in 1996. His M.Sc. and B.Sc. (honors) degrees are in Computer and Information Sciences from the National University of Singapore. The University of British Columbia and the National University of Singapore are consistently ranked as two of the top 50 universities in the world (e.g., U.S. News & World Report, QS World University Rankings, Times Higher Education World University Rankings).

Prior to joining the Missouri University of Science and Technology in June 2012, he was the Edwin J. Faulkner Chair Professor and Full Professor of Management at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). He was also the Director of the UNL-IBM Global Innovation Hub.

Professor Siau is the Vice President of Education for the Association for Information Systems (AIS) and serves on the Board of Partnership for Advancing Computing Education (PACE). He is also the Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Database Management, North America Regional Editor for the Requirements Engineering journal, and Co-Editor-in-Chief for the Advances in Database Research series. Professor Siau has more than 250 academic publications. According to the ISI Web of Science and Google Scholar, he has more than 1700 and 5500 citation counts respectively. His h-index, according to Harzing's Publish or Perish, is 38. In 2011, he was ranked as one of the top researchers in his field based on h-index and productivity rate. In 2006, he was ranked as one of the top ten e-commerce researchers in the world (Arithmetic Rank of 7, Geometric Rank of 3). In 2006, the citation count for his paper "Building Customer Trust in Mobile Commerce" is ranked in the top 1% within the field as reported by Essential Science Indicators. His research has been funded by NSF, IBM, and other IT organizations. Professor Siau has received numerous teaching, research, service, and leadership awards.
