SCME 2017 5th Symposium on Conceptual Modeling Education


The 5th Symposium on Conceptual Modeling Education (SCME 2017) is aimed at providing a forum for the education and teaching of concepts related to conceptual modeling. The Symposium invites submissions from the communities of databases, information systems, software engineering, web information systems, business process modeling, enterprise content management systems, and related areas. Topics of interest include all those that discuss the teaching and learning of any conceptual modeling topic, as listed in the Call for Papers of ER 2017 (link).

We solicit submission of papers that describe methods of teaching and educating conceptual modeling to both the research and industry communities, including papers with educational impact that solve conceptual modeling problems in research and industry. Papers describing tools for assisting education in conceptual modeling and showing the results achieved are also welcome. Empirical studies related to conceptual modeling education (controlled experiments, case studies, etc.) are particularly welcome.

This year, the SCME symposium will host the second edition of the iStarT workshop, as a designated track. (link)
