****** CMLS 2024: The 5th International Workshop on Conceptual Modeling for Life Sciences ******

In conjunction with the 42nd International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER 2024) in Pittsburgh, USA - October 28-31, 2024 (in-person conference)


Conference website


Submission deadline: July 27th, 2024

******Workshop focus******

The recent advances in unraveling the secrets of human conditions and diseases have encouraged new paradigms for their prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. As information is increasing at an unprecedented rate, it directly impacts the design and future development of information and data management pipelines; thus, new ways of processing data, information, and knowledge in healthcare environments are strongly needed.
This workshop aims to continue being a meeting point for Information Systems (IS), Conceptual Modeling (CM), Data Management (DM), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) researchers working on health care and life science problems. It is also an opportunity to share, discuss, and find new approaches to improve promising fields, with a special focus on Genomic Data Management – how to use the information from the genome to better understand biological and clinical features – and Precision Medicine – giving each patient an individualized treatment by understanding the peculiar aspects of the disease.
From the precise ontological characterization of the components involved in complex biological systems to the modeling of the operational processes and decision support methods used in the diagnosis and prevention of diseases, the joined research communities of IS, CM, DM, and AI have an important role to play; they must help in providing feasible solutions for high-quality and efficient health care. CMLS aims to become a forum for discussing the responsibility of the conceptual modeling community in supporting the life sciences related to these new realities.

******Topics of interest******

The fifth edition of the workshop focuses on conceptual modeling as a means for facing the challenges that emerge when designing and developing systems for life sciences, and it is focused on genomics and precision medicine. The workshop is not restricted to specific research methods; we will consider both conceptual and empirical research, as well as novel applications.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- AI and life sciences
- Large Language Models for improving precision medicine and decision-making
- Conceptual models for data-driven AI systems in life sciences Conceptual modeling for genomics
- Modeling of complex biological systems and health ecosystems
- Information systems for healthcare, genomics, or medicine of precision
- Design, implementation, and evaluation of health information systems
- Electronic/digital health information systems
- Life science-related domain-specific modeling languages
- Data management and integration for genomics and biology
- Ontologies and workflows for life sciences
- Clinical and biological data interoperability
- Interoperability of health information systems
- Knowledge representation for genetics
- Business process modeling for genetic/clinical diagnosis
- Conceptual model-driven big data analytics for genomics, clinical diagnosis, or biological problems
- Models for the digital transformation of healthcare systems
- Conceptual models in life sciences: from theory to practice
- Models to facilitate multidisciplinary exchange in healthcare contexts
- Virology-related conceptual models and their applications
- Conceptual models and information systems for fighting climate change and its effects on life science
- Reviews focusing on particular life science dimensions.


CMLS 2024 proceedings will be part of the ER 2024 Workshop volume. The authors must submit manuscripts using the Springer-Verlag LNCS style for Lecture Notes in Computer Science. For style files and details, see the page
