Call for Tutorials
The International Conference on Conceptual Modeling is a leading international forum for presenting and discussing current research and applications in which the major emphasis is on 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, methods and tools for developing and communicating conceptual models, and techniques for transforming conceptual models into effective implementations.
Tutorials are typically extended lectures of 1.5 hours or 3 hours by an expert on a highly-focused topic of relevance to conceptual modellers. Tutorials whose audience is broader than the conceptual modeling research community are encouraged.
The goal of a tutorial at the conference is to provide a road map (for beginners or advanced attendees) about a subject area so that attendees can then pursue work in that area if they are so inclined. Generally, tutorials emphasize breadth and cover material from a variety of different authors. The conference strongly encourages proposals containing new ideas and new approaches, or proposals on new subjects related to conceptual modeling.
