Call for Tutorials

Call for Tutorials

The 40th International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER 2021) solicits proposals for its tutorial program. Tutorials will be held on the days of October 18-21, in parallel to the ER main technical program. ER is currently planned to take place in St. John's, NL, Canada, with additional options for attending virtually. Further details on the attendance options for tutorial and workshop organizers will be provided in upcoming calls, as they depend on the pandemic situation.

ER tutorials consist of a prerecorded introductory video (about 1h) and an interactive session (1h) given on-site or online, respectively.

ER tutorials introduce general or special topics in ER and relevant neighboring areas. They can be first introductions to an established area or an emerging field, but also advanced courses on specialized methods or new approaches. The content should be adequately established and balanced, and not be limited to advertising an individual research work or product. A focus on specific tools and methodologies can still be useful to offer concrete examples and hands-on activities to participants.
