The advent of the 4th industrial revolution with paradigms like internet of Things, Factories of the Future and Cyber-Physical Systems increase the complexity and ubiquity of digital artefacts introducing: human challenges (e.g. human-machine/system interaction), lifecycle challenges (e.g. ICT embedded in the lifecycle of automotive, machines, energy provision systems etc.), business challenges (e.g. creating new business models to exploit value from new applications), and regulatory challenges (e.g. privacy, security etc.). A higher level of automated processing of digital information is expected, as well as “end-to-end” integration of processes across multiple organizations and customers. Also, the diversity of devices and items interacting with each other require processes that interoperate seamlessly, and products that are intelligible and useful to the intended users. These developments multiply the number and complexity of the requirements which engineers and computer scientists face in the design and management process of products, services and supporting information systems. At the same time, it increases their need for modelling, analysis and simulation tools suitable for executing these tasks.
This workshop focuses on concepts, methods, tools and advanced laboratories for teaching conceptual modelling. It aims to explore how conceptual modelling can be taught theoretically and practically. In addition, it aims to discuss how advanced conceptual modelling laboratories can be used to equip students and graduates with the necessary competences in solution engineering.
We invite academics and practitioners from all over the world to submit original contributions and experience reports. All topics relevant to conceptual modelling and advanced laboratories are of interest, with special focus on:
For the workshop we solicit high quality contributions in the form of papers according to the IEEE format (full papers: 8 pages, short papers: 4 pages), which will be presented in 20 minutes presentations + 10 minutes of discussions.
All accepted papers will be included in the IEEE Educon proceedings that will be distributed to all EDUCON participants and will be considered for publication in IEEE Xplore. (More information)
All papers must be prepared in accordance to the IEEE format (Instructions here) and be submitted electronically (in PDF) via the submission website. Please submit your paper in the respective special session titled “Teaching Conceptual Modelling”.
