Since its invention in the early 1980s conceptual modeling has changed considerably: databases now are frequently a key component of computational infrastructures and the integration of such infrastructure has increased tremendously. The qualification profile of software project staff, however, remains quite heterogeneous. These staff have their expertise incorporated into the application software by quite diverse types of models such as functionality, processes, quality, distribution, collaboration, usage, and user-interface models. The various models have started to interfere with each other. Therefore models become important that target at architecture and coordination. These tend to have an increased level of abstraction and complexity. The employed models depend on the cultural and educational background of their developers and users. Models typically follow the trends set by successful applications, infrastructures, new kinds of systems, and theoretical or technological insight. The evolution of these model drivers change causes models to either be adapted or retired.

The coherence, consistency, and targeted abstraction level of the many coexisting models at best is partially addressed. Recently modeling is challenged by liberation of data from structure and the integration of derived or aggregated data, e.g. in streaming databases, data warehouses and scientific applications. Typically models for applications start at an intermediate level and size. Later they evolve, grow, interact, and tend to become incomprehensible. What was supposed to be a solution starts turning into a problem.

Conceptual modeling in the small is state of the art as part of the software development process for specialists and educated application engineers. Conceptual modeling in the large has been mainly addressed within companies that handle large and complex data, processes, or applications. It is typically performed by many modelers and teams and covers a huge variety of model aspects.

This workshop targets on the systematic development, exploration and foundation of theory and practice of conceptual modeling in the large. We invite submissions that discuss issues such as:

** Models of structures, business processes and interaction in the large. **
** The role of technology or legacy systems. **
** Domain modeling and pros and cons of domain specific models. **
** Property modeling and pros and cons of property models. **
** Reference modeling and pros and cons of reference models. **
** Model integration, configuration and versioning. **
** Co-evolution of structure and process models. **
** Models of service, process, database, or information systems dynamics. **
** Model semantics, evolution, mapping, and coherence. **
** Model coexistence, migration, collaboration, and integration. **
** Model bases, refinement, correctness, or appropriateness. **

We invite the submission of unpublished high quality research or industrial experience papers that neither are under consideration for publication nor are going to be submitted for such consideration elsewhere. It is intended to publish the accepted papers in a Springer LNCS workshop volume dedicated to ER 2009. The targeted acceptance rate is 30 %.
