Supporting Process Model Validation through Natural Language Generation
A technique for generating natural language texts from business process models is proposed and it is demonstrated that the generated texts are superior in terms of completeness, structure, and linguistic complexity.

Using a Novel ORM-Based Ontology Modelling Method to Build an Experimental Innovation Router
This paper presents a web based tool for the creation of a scenario of what an innovation environment looks like, by enabling enriched queries and by allowing the identification of specific innovation gurus and key role institutions.
Constraint-enabled design information representation for mechanical products over the internet
A design information model, Universal Linkage model, is developed to represent design related information for mechanical products in a distributed form that incorporates geometric and non-geometric constraints with traditional geometry and topology elements, thus allows more design knowledge sharing in collaborative design.
A synthesis of Quality Criteria for requirements Elicitation Methods
These criteria are a synthesis of quality concepts and ideas in the fields of software engineering, information system development methodologies, conceptual modeling and requirements engineering that underline the development of requirement elicitation methods from traditional methods to modern methods.
Dealing with Uncertainty in Information Modelling
The general goal of the research is to understand and support (contextualized) modelling dialogues rather than the models that result from these dialogues or the modelling languages in which the models are expressed.
Improving Conceptual Modelling in Database Design
This research has identified modeling problems in the existing ER modeling technique and suggested an approach which solves these problems and the result is an improved ER model which closely represents the real-world problem thereby improving the semantic representation.
A Conceptual Language for the Description and Manipulation of Complex Information Models
An informal introduction to such a language (LISA-D) for the data modelling technique (PSM), is presented, which is a generalisation of object-role models (such as ER, NIAM and FORM).
