Call For Papers

Call for papers

Scope of the Conference

The International Conference on Conceptual Modeling is the leading international forum for presenting and discussing current research on conceptual modeling for computer-supported and networked applications. The 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.
Topics of Interest

We solicit submission of original research, as well as experience and vision papers, from both researchers and practitioners. We welcome any topic where conceptual modeling is a or the major theme.

Specific examples of topics of interest include, but are not limited to, conceptual modeling as applied to:

Information Modeling Concepts, including Ontologies
Logical, Cognitive, and Ontological Foundations of Conceptual Modeling
Conceptual Modeling for Web Information Systems
Quality and Metrics of Conceptual Models
Empirical Studies of Conceptual Modeling
Business Process Modeling
Conceptual Modeling for Enterprise Architectures and Service-Oriented Architectures
Conceptual Modeling and the Semantic Web
Semi-structured Data and XML
Management and Maintenance of Very Large Conceptual Models
Integration of Conceptual Models and Database Schemas
Information Retrieval, Filtering, Classification, Summarization, and Visualization
Methodologies and Tools for Conceptual Design
Requirements Engineering
Reuse, Patterns, and Object-Oriented Design
Reverse Engineering and Roundtrip Engineering
Conceptual Change and Schema Evolution
Management of Integrity Constraints
Active Concepts in Conceptual Modeling
Spatial, Temporal, and Multimedia Aspects in Conceptual Models
Conceptual Models at Runtime
Metadata, its Interpretation and Usage
Conceptual Models and Knowledge Management Systems
Data warehousing, Data Mining, and Business Intelligence
Other Advanced and Cross-Disciplinary Applications of Conceptual Models

Submission Guidelines

Since the proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS series, authors must submit manuscripts using the LNCS style. See for style files and details. The page limit for submitted papers (as well as for final, camera-ready papers) is 14. Manuscripts not submitted in the LNCS style or exceeding the page limit will not be reviewed and automatically rejected.

A paper submitted to ER 2011 may not be under review for any other conference or journal during the time it is being considered for ER 2011.

Submission to ER 2011 will be electronically managed via EasyChair. Authors are asked to submit an abstract first, and then to upload the full paper. The link to the sign-in page for EasyChair is The submission page of ER-2011 is
