The ER Fellows Award is an honor given to selected individuals in the conceptual-modeling community in recognition of their contributions to ER research, ER education, and ER community service. Since the annual ER conference is the flagship conference for the conceptual-modeling community, special consideration is given to candidates who have a sustained publication record in the conference proceedings, a record of encouraging students and others they mentor to become actively involved in the conference, and strong involvement in and service to the conference such as serving as a PC co-chair, conference chair, or steering-committee chair. Notwithstanding this intentional bias, ER Fellows may be selected from the broader community when they have clearly made significant research, education, and service contributions to conceptual modeling and continue to be actively involved in ER-community affairs.
