Important Dates


Since the proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series, authors must submit manuscripts using the LNCS style. The page limit for submitted papers (as well as for final, cameraready papers) is 14. Manuscripts not submitted in the LNCS style or exceeding the page limit will not be reviewed and automatically rejected. A paper submitted to ER 2016 may not be under review for any other conference or journal during the time it is being considered for ER 2016. Submitted papers must demonstrate to be aware of the state-of-the art literature in conceptual modeling by properly citing relevant papers in the field.

All submissions should be submitted through EasyChair.
