Call For Papers


28th International Conference on Conceptual Modeling



** Scope of the Conference **

The International Conference on Conceptual Modeling is a leading international forum for presenting and discussing current research and applications in which the major emphasis is on conceptual modeling. 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. We encourage submissions relating to all aspects of conceptual modeling defined broadly, and particularly encourage work on topics of emerging interest in the research and development communities.

** 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 major theme. Specific examples of topics of interest include, but are not limited to, conceptual modeling as applied to:
- Information Modeling Concepts, including Ontologies;
- Ontological and Conceptual Correctness in Modeling;
- Logical Foundations of Conceptual Modeling;
- Web Information Systems;
- Mobile information systems and pervasive computing;
- Service-Oriented Computing and Enterprise Architecture;
- The Semantic Web;
- Semistructured Data and XML;
- Information and Database Integration;
- Information Retrieval, Organization, Summarization, and Visualization;
- Design Methodologies and their Evaluation;
- Software Engineering and Tools;
- Requirements Engineering;
- Reuse, Patterns, and Object-Oriented Design;
- Reverse Engineering and Reengineering;
- Quality and Metrics;
- Empirical Studies of Conceptual Modeling;
- Conceptual Change and Schema Evolution;
- Maintenance of Information Systems;
- Management of Integrity Constraints;
- Active Concepts in Conceptual Modeling;
- Spatial, Temporal, and Multimedia Aspects in Conceptual Models;
- Metadata, its Interpretation and Usage;
- User Interface Modeling;
- Knowledge Management Systems;
- Groupware and Workflow Management;
- Data warehousing, data mining, and business intelligence;
- E-Learning, E-Business and E-Government; and
- Other Advanced and Cross-Disciplinary Applications.

** Conference Venue **

ER 2009 will be held at the beautiful city of Gramado, Brazil. Gramado is a small touristic town to the southeast of Caxias do Sul and east of Nova Petrópolis in the southern Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul. Check out the conference website for a wonderful video presenting Gramado.

"Gramado. Much more than a beautiful scenery. Natural landscapes of all colors and climates. Friendly people who preserve their traditions and are happy to welcome tourists. A perfect infra-structure to serve those who seek relaxation, pleasure, or adventure. A rich and varied cuisine that pleases all tastes. Unique events that enchant and attract visitors, and are never forgotten. This region offers visitors the best tourist infra-structure in the state. Cooking is rich and varied. Takes include irresistible chocolate, typical dishes, the plentiful colonial breakfast, and the taste of the best international cuisines. A merry climate, gastronomic delights, high quality service, exclusive landscapes throughout the year, and the incredible sensation of being part of a live, colorful, and friendly environment. Gramado offers all these things and much more. A traditional region always full of attractions and beauty waiting to be discovered. This region will seduce all newcomers, and those who come will want to return again and again. Gramado, unforgettable."

** Submission Guidelines **

Since the proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS series, authors must submit manuscripts using the LNCS style. The suggested number of pages is 14, and the maximum number of pages is 16. Manuscripts not submitted in the LNCS style or having more than 16 pages will not be reviewed and thus automatically rejected. (The final, camera-ready version must not exceed 14 pages to avoid page charges.) A paper submitted to ER 2009 cannot be under review for any other conference or journal during the time it is being considered for ER 2009.
Submission to ER 2009 will be electronically only. Authors are asked to submit an abstract first, and then to upload the full paper. The online submission system will be available soon.

** Important Dates **

16.Mar.09 - Paper abstract submission
30.Mar.09 - Full paper submission
01.Jun.09 - Notification
22.Jun.09 - Camera-ready submission
