Call For Papers
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. Submissions that relate to change in general, and the digital transformation in particular, are especially welcome, since the overall theme of ER 2020 is:

Digital Transformation—Exciting Times for 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, modeling languages, methods and tools for developing and communicating conceptual models, and techniques for transforming conceptual models into effective implementations.


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

    Foundations and Concept Formalization
    Ontological and Cognitive Foundations for Conceptual Modeling
