The Thirteen Asia-Pacific Conference on Conceptual Modelling (APCCM 2017)
      January 31 - February 3, 2017, Geelong, Australia
      Submission Deadline: August 8, 2017

The Asia-Pacific Conferences on Conceptual Modelling provide an annual
forum for disseminating the results of innovative research in information
modelling and related areas.

The thirteenth conference of the series will be held from January 31 to
February 3 as a track of the Australasian Computer Science Week (ACSW
2017), hosted at Deakin University in Geelong, Australia. Registration will
enable delegates to attend sessions in any conference participating in the
Australasian Computer Science Week.

The amount, complexity and diversity of information held in computer
systems are constantly on the increase, and so are the requirements and
challenges to be met for useful access and manipulation of this
information. Conceptual modelling is fundamental to the development of
up-to-date information and knowledge-based systems. The conference series
aims at bringing together experts from all areas of computer science and
information systems with a common interest in the subject.

Paper Submission and Publication

APCCM invites papers describing original contributions in all fields of
conceptual modelling and related areas. Papers should be no more than 10
pages in length, conforming to formatting instructions available on the
conference website. Each paper will be judged on its originality,
significance, technical quality, relevance and presentation. Submission to
APCCM 2017 will be electronically only, via EasyChair. APCCM 2017
proceedings will be published in the ACM International Conference
Proceedings Series and included in the ACM Digital Library.

Please note that it is ACSW policy that at least one author of all accepted
papers to the conferences and workshops in the series would both register
and present at the event concerned. Failure to do so without a reason
acceptable to the organisers of the event will result in the paper being
retrospectively withdrawn from both the proceedings and all citation
sources. It is also ACSW policy that all papers be original and not
concurrently submitted elsewhere. Once again, we reserve the right to
retrospectively withdraw a paper from the proceedings if we later find this
not to be the case.

APCCM invites contributions addressing current research in conceptual
modelling as well as experiences, novel applications and future challenges.
