a satellite event of the 28th International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER 2009)

09-12/november/2009 - GRAMADO, RS, Brazil

The ER2009 PhD Colloquium is intended to bring together PhD students working
on topics related to the ER conference series. The workshop will offer PhD students the
opportunity to present, discuss, and receive feedback on their research in a constructive
and collegial atmosphere. Prominent researchers in the field of conceptual modeling will
attend the workshop and mentor the participant students. The workshop is co-located
with the ER2009 conference and will take place on the first conference day (Monday,
November 9th, 2009). The Colloquium language is English.

The PhD Colloquium is intended for students who have already settled on a specific
research proposal and have some preliminary results, but still have enough time
remaining before submitting their dissertation so that they can benefit from workshop
feedback. The technical scope of the PhD Workshop is the same as that of the ER2009.


Students willing to participate in the PhD Workshop must submit an abstract describing
their doctoral work. The abstract should not exceed 5 pages in the LNCS conferenceproceedings
style and must cover the following aspects:

− a clear formulation of the research topic
− an outline of the significant problems in the field and their current solutions
− a description of the proposed approach and its expected contributions
− a summary of the (expected) results, including their (proposed) evaluation method

The abstract must be submitted electronically to both chairs of the colloquium in PDF
format. All submissions will be acknowledged.
Submissions will be judged on originality, significance, technical merit, presentation
quality and relevance to the workshop topics. Each paper will be reviewed by at least
two members of the workshop program committee (PhD Chairs plus PhD mentors).

By submitting a contribution students accept that they have to register to the
conference and attend the workshop. Failure to register or to attend will entail removal
of their submission even if formally accepted.


Submission: June,29th 2009 (11:59pm EST)
Notification: August 10th, 2009
Camera ready: September 30th, 2009
