CALL FOR PAPERS in the 4th workshop Quality of Models and Models of 
Quality QMMQ
in conjunction with the 36th International Conference on Conceptual 
Modeling (ER2017)
to be held in Valencia, Spain. from Nov. 6-9, 2017


Currently we are living in an information society, where all citizens 
live connected through mobiles, computers or embedded systems. Systems 
that support this connection evolve rapidly in the Internet age. This 
quick evolution forces to develop software in a short period of time, 
with a smaller focus given to the quality of the software. Consequently, 
a new challenge facing researchers as well as practitioners is how to 
ensure the systems quality.
The QMMQ workshop series intends to provide a space for fruitful 
exchanges involving both researchers and practitioners around a variety 
of interests such as: data quality, information quality, system quality 
as well as models, methods, processes and tools for managing quality. 
The aim of the workshop is twofold. Firstly, to provide an opportunity 
for researchers and industry developers working on various aspects of 
information systems quality to exchange research ideas and results and 
to discuss them. Secondly, to promote research on information systems 
and conceptual modeling quality to the broader conceptual modeling 
research community attending ER 2017.
For its 4th edition, the QMMQ workshop will have a special focus on the 
quality of process models. Authors are encouraged to submit papers 
related to Quality frameworks, Methods for assessing and improving 
quality as well as Empirical studies for the evaluation of process models.

ER_QMMQ Quality Challenge
As innovation for this edition, we plan to organize a special session: 
“ER_QMMQ Quality Challenge”. It is a call for short papers with the 
topic “How quality theme has been addressed within the ER conference 
during the 36 past editions including all the events such as workshops, 
panels, keynotes etc. and what are the new trends and challenges of 
quality in software systems that are continuously evolving in the 
current society?” During the conference, we plan to organize this 
session as a debate.

The workshop is not restricted to particular research methods and we 
will consider both conceptual and empirical research, as well as novel 
applications. Particular topics of interest related to IS and CM quality 
include, but are not limited to:
•Quality constructs, models and ontologies
•Quality measures and instruments
•Experiments for validating quality models, measures and instruments
•Methodological issues of research on IS quality
•Data quality
•Big data quality
•Method and tool support for improving and monitoring quality
•Quality of requirements engineering artifacts and processes
•Quality of models and meta-models
•Quality of ontologies and reference models
•Quality of decision-making processes and models
•Quality modeling languages
•Ontological analysis of conceptual modeling grammars
•Cost/benefit analysis of quality assurance processes
•Quality assurance practices : case studies and experiences
•Experiments and case studies on quality evaluation.
•Quality of end-users interfaces
•Quality of experimental processes
