Call for Workshops

41st International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER 2022) Venue : Online (Virtual), October 17-20, 2022

Due to the ongoing Covid situation we also welcome proposals for virtual or hybrid workshops.

Continuing a long tradition, ER 2022 will host a number of workshops to be held in conjunction with the main ER 2022 conference. The workshops will serve as an intensive collaborative forum for exchanging innovative ideas about conceptual modeling, and for discovering new frontiers for its use. We specifically invite proposals for interactive workshops on new, emerging, or established topics in conceptual modeling, or its application in specific domains. We encourage workshop organizers to include activities that provide their participants with a true workshop experience. Topics of interest include foundations of conceptual models, theories of concepts, ontology-driven conceptual modeling and analysis, methods and tools for developing, communicating, consolidating, and evolving conceptual models, and techniques for transforming conceptual models into effective implementations.
