Call for Workshops

Call for Workshops

Continuing a long tradition, ER 2021 will host a number of workshops to be held in conjunction with the main ER 2021 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. The conference and its workshops are expected to be hybrid, with both in-person and remote participation. Workshop proposals in any topics of interest to ER2021, are welcome.

Proceedings of all ER workshops will be published as a single volume of Springer LNCS. 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.
