Conceptual Modeling, AI, and Beyond



ER Forum

The ER Forum track is a vibrant and interactive platform for presenting and discussing novel and diverse research reports and artifacts on the full range of conceptual modeling topics. Papers include new and promising research results, novel applications, and experience reports, proposed research endeavors still in early stages, and updates from earlier work. Innovation prevails over maturity, in particular regarding emerging new research topics. The main goal of the track is to facilitate the interaction, discussion and exchange of ideas among presenters and participants.

Forum Papers

Forum papers present novel and innovative research in conceptual modeling that is not necessarily mature or fully evaluated but includes interesting early results or carries promise for high future impact. Forum papers may also present novel applications of conceptual modeling in industrial contexts, or vision statements describing new and innovative research endeavors that are still in the conceptualization, design, or exploratory stage. Full Forum papers are limited to 14 pages and short papers to 8 pages.
