2nd Virtual International Workshop on Conceptual Modeling for Distributed Ledger Technologies (Virtual MOD-DLT)

Co-located with the 39th International Conference on Conceptual Modeling
Technical University of Vienna, Austria (November 3-6, 2020)

The workshop will be held virtually in the same manner as the virtual ER'2020 conference.

Workshop website:


* Hans-Georg Fill, University of Fribourg, Switzerland
* Julius Köpke, Alpen-Adria-University Klagenfurt, Austria
* Felix Härer, University of Fribourg, Switzerland

* Submission deadline: August 10, 2020
* Workshop author notification: August 24, 2020
* Camera-ready version: September 7, 2020

Aims and Scope
Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) have recently gained much attention in academia and industry. Well-known examples are blockchain-based approaches for cryptocurrencies or smart contracts for the automated, distributed and transparent execution of algorithms without intermediaries. For introducing these technologies in real-life enterprise scenarios it is however essential to align them with business requirements and show their added value. For this purpose, methods of conceptual modeling can contribute for enabling the communication in organizations, deriving and aligning requirements for technical implementations or even creating code that can be executed using DLT. In this workshop we thus aim to bring together researchers working on the interface between conceptual modeling and DLT for presenting and discussing their most recent research results. The workshop will be held for the second time in the context of the ER'2020 conference in Vienna, Austria.

Topics for this workshop include but are not limited to the following:
* Domain-specific modeling languages for blockchains and smart contracts
* Modeling the strategy, processes and implementation of decentralized organizations
* Enterprise architecture models utilizing DLT infrastructure
* Business process and workfow modeling and execution on the blockchain
* Modeling approaches for blockchains, smart contracts and decentralized applications (DApps)
* Model-driven engineering and generative approaches for blockchains and smart contracts
* Attestation and identity for blockchains and smart contracts utilizing conceptual models
* Collaborative modeling approaches using blockchain and DLT infrastructures
* Blockchains and DLT infrastructure for managing, versioning and collaborating on models
* Privacy, anonymity and data protection for enterprise models supported by blockchains
* Value creation and supply chain models for decentralized value creation
* Visualization of DLT infrastructure, blockchain transactions and smart contracts using conceptual models

Submissions and Formatting Guidelines
Since the proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS series, authors must submit manuscripts using the LNCS style. The page limit for submitted papers (as well as for final, camera-ready papers) is 10. Manuscripts not submitted in the LNCS style or exceeding the page limit will not be reviewed and automatically rejected. Authors should consult Springer's authors' guidelines ( and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX ( or for Word (, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers.
In case of acceptance, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign this Consent-to-Publish form ( The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
The papers will be peer-reviewed by an international program committee. The best papers will be invited for extended submissions in the gold-open access EMISAJ journal. Please use the following link for your submissions:
