The International Conference on Conceptual Modeling is a leading international forum for presenting and discussing current research and applications in which the major emphasis is on conceptual modeling. Topics of interest span the entire spectrum of conceptual modeling including research and practice in areas such as theories of concepts and ontologies underlying conceptual modeling, methods and tools for developing and communicating conceptual models, and techniques for transforming conceptual models into effective implementations.

ER 2009 will host a number of workshops addressing different areas related to conceptual modeling that complement the main ER 2009 conference. Workshops are intended to serve as an intensive collaborative forum for exchanging late breaking ideas and theories in an evolutionary stage. We encourage prospective workshop organizers to submit proposals for highly-interactive workshops focusing on either in-depth analysis or broad-ranging approaches to areas related to conceptual modeling.

Submission Guidelines

A workshop proposal should be about 2-5 pages long and contain the following information:

  • Title;
  • Summary;
  • Topics;
  • Format and duration;
  • Organizers (attach short CVs, limit of 2 pages each);
  • Proposed program committee;
  • Expected submission and acceptance rate;
  • Type (academic and/or industrial) and number of expected participants;
  • Significance in relation to topics of the main conference; and
  • Details of any previous workshops.

Workshop proposals are reviewed based on the quality of the proposal, its relation to the main ER topics, and the likelihood to attract enough participants.

Exact workshop paper submission and author notification due dates are at discretion of workshop organizers but must fit within the time-line indicated.

Proceedings of all ER workshops are to be published as a single volume of Springer LNCS to be distributed at the ER 2009 conference. All the workshop papers should be limited to 10 pages in LNCS format. It is expected that the organizers of ER workshops conform to the rules imposed by the ER steering committee such as the acceptance rate for all workshops will not exceed 50% and organizers are not allowed to submit their own papers to their workshop. Workshop proposals should be submitted by email to either of the workshop chair listed below.
