Call for Project Exhibitions

We welcome submissions of papers describing ongoing and future projects related to the field of conceptual modeling.

This track offers a great opportunity for presenters to disseminate the intermediate results of their projects, to get feedback before submitting a project proposal. To participants, it offers a moment to get an updated view of innovative ongoing research, as well as networking with potential research partners.

  • Paper submission: 02 August 2023
  • Author notification: 04 September 2023
  • Camera-ready papers: 20 September 2023
  • Author registration: 02 October 2023

Topics of Interest

We welcome research projects in any conceptual modeling domain. The list of relevant topics include, but is not limited to:

Foundations of conceptual modeling:

  • Automated and AI-assisted conceptual modeling
  • Complexity management of large conceptual models
  • Concept formalization, including data manipulation languages and techniques, formal concept analysis, and integrity constraints
  • Domain-specific modeling
  • Discovery of models, (anti-)patterns, and structures
  • Evolution, exchange, integration and transformation of models
  • Justification and evaluation of models
  • Logic-based knowledge representation and reasoning
  • Multi-level and multi-perspective modeling
  • Ontological and cognitive foundations
  • Quality paradigms and metrics
  • Semantics in conceptual modeling
  • Theories and methodologies for conceptual modeling
  • Verification and validation of conceptual models

Conceptual modeling for:

  • Data access, acquisition, integration, maintenance, preparation, transformation, and visualization
  • Data management, including database design, performance optimization, privacy and security, provenance, transactions, queries
  • Data value, variety, velocity, veracity, volume, and other dimensions
  • Distributed, decentralized, ledger-based, parallel and P2P databases
  • Graph and network databases
  • Object-oriented and object-relational databases
  • SQL, NewSQL and NoSQL databases
  • Spatial and temporal databases
  • Event-based and stream architectures
  • Multimedia and text databases
  • Approximate, probabilistic, and uncertain databases
  • Web, Semantic Web, knowledge graphs, and cloud databases
  • Other data spaces

Conceptual modeling in:

  • AI, data mining, data science, machine learning, or statistics
  • Business, climate, compliance, economics, education, energy, entertainment, government, health, law, sustainability, etc
  • Collaboration, crowdsourcing, games, and social networks
  • Business intelligence and analytics, Data warehousing
  • Engineering, such as agile development, requirements engineering, reverse engineering
  • Enterprises, including the modeling of business rules, capabilities, goals, services, processes, and values
  • Ethics, fairness, responsibility, or trust
  • Digital twins, fog and edge computing, Industry 4.0, internet of things
  • Information classification, filtering, retrieval, summarization, and visualization
  • Scientific data management, including FAIR practices

Conceptual modeling showcased by:

  • Computational tools that advance the state-of-the-art
  • Empirical studies
  • Experience reports of applications, use cases, and real-world impact

Eligible Projects

A project is eligible for this track if:

  • It tackles relevant conceptual modelling challenges o uses conceptual modelling techniques
  • It is a research or an innovation project
  • It is ongoing, scheduled to start, or still in planning
  • It intends to address, in a delimited period and by a team, or a consortium of teams, a challenge posed by an organization or a funding entity.

Submission Guidelines

Submissions to this track should:

  • Describe a single project
  • Provide descriptive information about the project (e.g. name, duration, participants, partners, funding agency, website)
  • Describe the goals, work packages, and expected outcomes of the project
  • Discuss the relevance of the project (or one of its work packages) to the conceptual modeling community
  • Present the current state of the project

Papers should be at most 8 pages long (excluding references) and comply with the CEUR-ART 1-column style.

Papers should be submitted in PDF format through EasyChair by selecting the “Project Exhibitions” track.


Accepted papers may be published within the second proceedings volume of the conference, alongside workshop and forum papers.

This proceedings volume will be published by

Review Process

We will follow a single-blind review process with a program committee composed of international researchers with expertise in the field.

Each submission will be reviewed by at least two members of a dedicated program committee on the relevance of the project for the conceptual modeling community. If necessary, a third member will also review the submission.

For each accepted submission, the authors will be invited to register for the conference to present their project at a dedicated session at ER 2023.
