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

•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
