Information Processing and Management: International Conference on Recent Trends in Business Administration and Information Processing, BAIP 2010, Trivandrum, Kerala, India, March 26-27, 2010. Proceedings by Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG (Paperback, 2010)
It is my pleasure to write the preface for Information Processing and Management. This book aims to bring together invative results and new research trends in inf- mation processing, computer science and management engineering. If an information processing system is able to perform useful actions for an obj- tive in a given domain, it is because the system kws something about that domain. The more kwledge it has, the more useful it can be to its users. Without that k- edge, the system itself is useless. In the information systems field, there is conceptual modeling for the activity that elicits and describes the general kwledge a particular information system needs to kw. The main objective of conceptual modeling is to obtain that description, which is called a conceptual schema. Conceptual schemas are written in languages called conceptual modeling languages. Conceptual modeling is an important part of requi- ments engineering, the first and most important phase in the development of an inf- mation system.
