Since the proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS series, authors must submit manuscripts using the LNCS style. See for style files and details. The page limit for submitted papers (as well as for final, camera-ready papers) is 14. Manuscripts not submitted in the LNCS style or exceeding the page limit will not be reviewed and will be automatically rejected. Springer has provided a LaTeX template in Overleaf for your convenience.

A paper submitted to ER 2020 may not be under review for any other conference or journal during the time it is being considered for ER 2020. Submitted papers must demonstrate awareness of the state-of-the art literature in conceptual modeling by properly citing relevant papers in the field.

Submission is done through EasyChair. (More instructions to follow.)
