Call for Workshop Proposals
43rd International Conference on Conceptual Modeling, (ER 2024)
“Conceptual Modeling, AI, and Beyond”

Location: Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, USA
Dates: 28-31 Oct, 2024

Continuing a long tradition, ER 2024 will host multiple workshops on cutting-edge topics to be held in conjunction with the main ER 2024 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. Workshops aligned with the main conference theme (“Conceptual Modeling, AI, and Beyond”, see https://resources.sei.cmu.edu/news-events/events/er2024/cfp.cfm) are especially welcome. We encourage workshop organizers to include activities that provide their participants with a true workshop experience that is interactive, engaging, and encourages discussion.
