The ER'97 program committee invites proposals for workshops. The workshops are intended to provide an opportunity to meet and discuss selected topics on conceptual modeling. Workshops can be scheduled around the conference as workshop organizers see fit -- for example, the weekend before, evenings during the conference, the afternoon of last conference day, the day following the last conference day, or combinations of these times. Attendees at workshops must register for the ER'97 conference and must also pay an additional workshop fee.
Submit by electronic mail the following information to one of the program co-chairs below.
Proposals for workshops on technology development should be sent to Embley, and proposals for workshops on technology application should be sent to Goldstein.

Each workshop organizing committee will be responsible for producing a Call for Participation for the workshop and for selecting participants. The ER'97 committee will make the Call for Participation available as part of the ER'97 web site. Workshops registration forms will be included with the registration material for ER'97.
Workshop organizers are responsible to produce a short summary report (3 - 7 pages). These summary reports will be made available on the web as part of ER'97. Any additional reports, summaries, or proceedings are the responsibility of the workshop organizers.
The ER'97 committee reserves the right to cancel any workshop if deadlines are missed, or if the number of registered attendees at the workshop is too low to support the costs of running the workshop.
