Call for 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.

Contribution Types and Author Guidelines

The ER Forum & Demo track allows for the following types of submissions (page lengths in CEUR, 1-column format):

  • 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 modelling 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.
  • Vision papers have a particular focus on the future of conceptual modeling or anticipate new challenges and opportunities. Submission of vision papers may describe novel projects that are in an early stage but hold out the strong promise of eventual high impact. The paper should describe what the success criteria are for the vision project. Vision papers have a limit of 4 pages.
  • Follow-up notes report new experiences about previously published papers in the RE conference or elsewhere. The abstract should include the reference to the original paper(s), as well as new material. This may include new findings or insights AFTER the original publication(s), extensions of the original work, preliminary evaluation data, or reports on the reception, use, or application of the original research in the community. Follow- up notes have a limit of 4 pages.

Submissions must conform to CEUR-ART 1-column format. Length limits include all text, figures, references and appendices. Information about the CEUR-ART format can be found at (Scroll to section: “CEUR-ART style files for papers”).

The results described must be unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere. Papers should be submitted in PDF format. Three to five keywords characterizing the paper should be indicated at the end of the abstract.

All submissions should be submitted through EasyChair at: Please select the “ER 2023 Forum” track.
