Call for Workshops
The International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER) is the leading international forum for presenting and discussing current research and applications in which the major emphasis is on conceptual modeling and its applications. 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 2015 will host a number of workshops addressing different areas related to conceptual modeling that complement the main ER 2015 conference. Workshops are intended to serve as an intensive collaborative forum for exchanging innovative ideas in conceptual modeling. We encourage prospective workshop organizers to submit proposals for highly interactive workshops focusing on either in-depth analysis or broad-ranging approaches to emerging topics in conceptual modeling. We also welcome workshop proposal addressing the case of applying conceptual modeling to specific industries.
- Workshop proposal submission: January 10, 2015
- Notification of acceptance: February 5, 2015
- Full paper submission: will depend upon the workshop
- Camera-ready proceedings submission: July 5, 2015 (submission of all papers plus summary by respective workshop chairs)
A workshop proposal should be about 3-5 pages long and contain the following information:
- Topics of interest;
- Format and duration;
- Type (academic and/or industrial);
- Significance in relation to topics of the main conference;
- Organizers (attach short CVs, limit of 2 pages each and pointing out their experience in organizing events);
- Proposed program committee;
- Expected submission volume and number of expected participants;
- Expected number of accepted papers;
Please include any available information of previous organization of the workshop you are proposing, with an emphasis on submission and registration numbers. Workshop proposals will be reviewed based on the quality of the proposal, its relation to the main ER topics, the likelihood to attract enough participants, as well as the hosting capacity of the venue. Exact workshop paper submission and author notification due dates are at the discretion of workshop organizers but must fit within the time-line indicated.
Workshop proposals should be submitted by email to the the ER workshop co-chairs listed below.
Conference and Workshop Proceedings
Proceedings of all ER workshops will be published as a single volume of Springer LNCS to be distributed at the ER 2015 conference. All the workshop papers should be limited to no more than 10 pages in LNCS format. It is expected that the organizers of ER workshops conform to the rules imposed by the ER steering committee – specifically, the acceptance rate for all workshops will not exceed 40% and organizers are not allowed to submit papers to their own workshop.
