Call For Papers

Call for Papers
The International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER) is the leading international forum for presenting and discussing current research on conceptual modeling. The topics of interest span the entire spectrum of conceptual modeling including research and practice in areas such ER 2018: theories of concepts underlying conceptual modeling, methods and tools for developing and communicating conceptual models, techniques for transforming conceptual models into effective implementations, and the impact of conceptual modeling techniques on databases, business strategies and information systems development.

Topics of Interest
We solicit submission of original research, as well as experience and vision papers, from both researchers and practitioners, welcoming any topic where conceptual modeling is a major theme. We specifically encourage submissions on the application and role of conceptual modeling techniques in new and emerging areas such as large data repositories for business intelligence, cloud computing and NoSQL databases.

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

Foundations and Concept Formalization
Domain Specific Conceptual Modeling Languages, Methods and Frameworks
Methodologies and Tools for Conceptual Design
Data Warehousing, Data Mining, Business Intelligence and Analytics
NoSQL and NewSQL Databases
Big Data
Semantic Web, Cloud Computing, and Web Information Systems
Ontological and Cognitive Foundations for Conceptual Modeling
Quality and Metrics of Conceptual Models
Patterns and Reuse
Data Semantics and Integrity Constraints
Interleaving Modeling and Development
Integration of Conceptual Models and Database Schemas
Schema Evolution and Management of Database Constraints
Metadata and Applications
Spatial, Temporal, and Multimedia Aspects in Conceptual Models
Semi-structured Data and XML
Empirical Studies of Conceptual Modeling

ER 2018 awards and Special Issue
Springer Verlag will sponsor two awards:

Best Student Paper Award: to be given to the best paper whose first author is a student.
Best Paper Award: to be given to the best paper, excluding papers authored or coauthored by PC members.
Some selected papers will be invited to submit their extended version of their papers to a DKE special issue.

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 2018 may not be under review for any other conference or journal during the time it is being considered for ER 2018. Submitted papers must demonstrate to be aware of the state-of-the art literature in conceptual modeling by properly citing relevant papers in the field.

Submission Instructions:

Submission to ER 2018 will be electronically managed via EasyChair. Authors are asked to submit an abstract first, and then to upload the full paper.
