1st Workshop on
Domain-specific Modeling Methods and Tools - OMiLAB Nodes experience & knowledge exchange (OMILAB-KNOW)

September 15th - Co-located with BIR’23 (

Workshop description

The goal of the workshop is to stimulate discussions on the requirements, use, design decisions, tooling and evaluations regarding domain-specific conceptual modeling methods in the context of Business Informatics Research.
Discussions will be facilitated by the current activities and experience of nodes in the OMiLAB network and community of practice. Results from network members typically include modeling tools, modeling method components or extensions, model-driven artifacts, applications of domain-specific modeling, empirical evaluation strategies. OMiLAB nodes are invited to share such results, visions potentially leading to such results or project-based experiences where modeling methods played an enabling role. Both empirical experimentation and design-oriented research are welcome. The integration of conceptual modeling topics in curricular contents and associated teaching experiences are also typical concerns to be discussed in the workshop's scope.
The workshop also welcomes researchers and educators from outside the OMiLAB network who are active in the fields of knowledge engineering, enterprise modeling and domain-specific modeling, having a general interest in the value of conceptual models and the diversity of modeling purposes. Knowledge exchanges with other modeling-centric communities are expected to drive debates and positions with diverse perspectives.
Various stages of research progress can be reported in the workshop submissions - from (short) position and vision papers to (full) research papers and experience reports.

Relevant topics

• Domain specific modeling languages for business informatics
• Modeling method requirements and evaluations
• Design and deployment of conceptual modeling methods
• Enterprise modeling for business ecosystems
• Conceptual modeling for digital innovation
• Developing modeling tools and tool extensions
• From conceptual models to digital twins and knowledge graphs
• Model-driven engineering and model-driven artifacts
• Enterprise architecture modeling
• Applications, scenarios and experience reports on model use and model value
• Empirical studies on model and modeling method qualities
• Teaching cases and experiences with conceptual modeling


We invite two types of paper contributions:
• Full papers: regular research or experience papers (12 pages)
• Short papers: be position or vision papers (6 pages)

Submission guidelines are to be aligned with the overall BIR 2023 guidelines for workshops, intended to be published as a joint CEUR-WS proceedings volume. Uniform formatting requirements for all BIR 2023 workshops and additional instructions are available at

All accepted papers will have to be presented in person by one registered author.
