Dear Colleagues, 

The next ER Conference, the 36th International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER'2017), will be held in the beautiful city of Valencia, Spain, from the 6th to the 9th of November, 2017. 


The International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER) is the leading international forum for presenting and discussing research and applications of conceptual modeling. 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. 

Continuing a long tradition, ER 2017 will host a number of workshops to be held in conjunction with the main ER 2017 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. 


Workshop proposals should be about 3-5 pages long, submitted as a single pdf file by email to both ER workshop co-chairs and contain the following information: 

    * Title 
    * Topics of interest 
    * Format and duration 
    * Type (academic and/or industrial) 
    * Significance to conceptual modeling 
    * Organizers (short CVs, limit of two pages each, experience in organizing events) 
    * Proposed program committee 
    * Expected numbers of submissions and participants 
    * Expected number of accepted papers 
    * Activities that facilitate discussion among participants 
    * Activities that convey state-of-the-art to participants 
    * Activities that convey open challenges to participants 
    * Information about previous workshop editions, including submission and registration numbers 

****** IMPORTANT DATES ****** 

January 20, 2017: Workshop Proposal Submission 

February 10, 2017: Notification of acceptance 

July 3, 2017: Submission of Workshop Papers

The number of acceptable workshop proposals is limited by the time available and the facilities of the conference venue. Workshop proposals will be evaluated according to the: 

    * Scientific quality of the proposal 
    * Significance to conceptual modeling 
    * Likely numbers of high-quality submissions 
    * Quality of workshop experience for participants 
    * Overlap with other workshops 


Proceedings of all ER workshops will be published as a single volume of Springer LNCS, subject to final confirmation. All workshop papers are limited to no more than 10 pages in LNCS format. It is expected that the organizers of ER workshops conform to the rules imposed by the ER steering committee. In particular, the acceptance rate for all workshops will not exceed 40% and organizers are not allowed to submit papers to their own workshop.
