The 36th Annual International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER17)

November 6-9, 2017 | Valencia, Spain |

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.
