(Co-located with ER 2018)
Xi’an, China

Conceptual modeling has enjoyed substantial growth over the past decades in diverse fields such as Information Systems Analysis, Software Engineering, Enterprise Architecture, Business Analysis and Business Process Engineering. A plethora of conceptual modeling languages, frameworks and systems have been proposed, promising to facilitate activities such as communication, design, documentation or decision-making. Success in designing a conceptual modeling system is, however, predicated on demonstrably attaining such goals through observing their use in practical scenarios. At the same time, the way individuals and groups produce and consume models gives raise to cognitive, behavioral, organizational or other phenomena, whose systematic observation may help us better understand how models are used in practice and how we can make them more effective.

--Aim and Topics--
We aim at bringing together researchers with an interest in the empirical investigation of conceptual modeling systems and practices. We invite both reports on finished, on-going or proposed empirical studies and theoretical, review and experience papers about empirical research in conceptual modeling.

Examples of contributions include but are not limited:
               - Complete, on-going or planned empirical studies in Conceptual Modeling.
               - Literature Reviews on empirical research in Conceptual Modeling.
               - Theoretical/philosophical positions on empirical Conceptual Modeling.
               - Discussions/positions on statistical and methodological issues.
               - Lessons learned from past studies.

We solicit three types of papers:
               - Full papers (10 LNCS pages max + 2 page references) describing a completed study.
               - Work-in-progress papers (6 LNCS pages max) describing a planned study or study in progress.
               - Position, vision and lessons papers (6 LNCS pages max) about the use of empirical methods for conceptual modelling.

The EMP-ER’18 accepted papers will be published within the ER Workshop proceedings, in the Springer LNCS Series. At least one of the authors for each accepted paper must be registered and attend the conference for paper presentation.
