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 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 on bringing together experts from all areas of computer science and information systems with a common interest in the subject.

The thirteenth conference of the series will be held in January 2017 as part of the Australasian Computer Science Week (ACSW 2017). Registration for APCCM will enable delegates to attend sessions in any conference participating in the Australasian Computer Science Week.

We look forward to your submissions!

Scope of the Conference

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.

APCCM invites contributions addressing current research in conceptual modelling as well as experiences, novel applications and future challenges. Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

  • Business, enterprise, process and services modelling;
  • Concepts, concept theories and ontologies;
  • Conceptual modelling and user participation;
  • Conceptual modelling for
    • Decision support and expert systems;
    • Digital libraries;
    • E-business, e-commerce and e-banking systems;
    • Health care systems;
    • Knowledge management systems;
    • Mobile information systems;
    • User interfaces; and
    • Web-based systems;
  • Conceptual modelling of semi-structured data and XML;
  • Conceptual modelling of spatial, temporal and biological data;
  • Conceptual modelling quality;
  • Conceptual models for cloud computing applications;
  • Conceptual models for supporting requirement engineering;
  • Conceptual models in management science;
  • Design patterns and object-oriented design;
  • Evolution and change in conceptual models;
  • Implementations of information systems;
  • Information and schema integration;
  • Information customisation and user profiles;
  • Information recognition and information modelling;
  • Information retrieval, analysis, visualisation and prediction;
  • Information systems design methodologies;

  • Methods for developing, validating and communicating conceptual models;
  • Models for the Semantic Web;
  • Philosophical, mathematical and linguistic foundations of conceptual models;
  • Reuse, reverse engineering and reengineering; and
  • Software engineering and tools for information systems development.
