Conference management applications have been widely used as examples
for the study of conceptual schemas because of their manageable size
and diversity of cases. However, as far as we are concerned, the
conceptual schemas available only refer to the structural or static
part of these systems. Therefore we have considered useful and
necessary for our work to develop a whole specification, including the
behaviour of a conference management application. The conceptual
schema proposed in this paper is based on the study of the code of a
real existing product: MYREVIEW.
Additionally, this paper has also permitted to test or consolidate the
real application of some proposals. The first group consists on
alternate mechanisms to define integrity constraints and derived
elements proposed by Olivé. The root of these proposals is the
definition of constraint and derived elements by means of operations.
Secondly, it aims at exploiting the benefits of modelling events as
entity types proposed by Olivé. Finally, it also includes the
distinction between domain events, action request events and query
events in which Olivé and Raventós are currently working.
