The objective of the half-day workshop CoMoNoS is to explore opportunities for conceptual modeling, addressing real-world problems that arise with NoSQL data stores (like MongoDB, Couchbase, Cassandra, or Neo4j). In designing an application backed by a NoSQL data store, developers face specific challenges that match the strengths of the ER community.
The purpose of this workshop is to grow a community of researchers and industry practitioners working on conceptual modeling for NoSQL data stores. With this workshop, we hope to provide the necessary breeding ground: We are convinced that practitioners will ultimately benefit from the experience of the ER research community. At the same time, we want to provide a forum for researchers to learn about the actual pain points faced by practitioners.
In the context of conceptual modeling for NoSQL data stores, the scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited to the following topics:
Data modeling for schema-flexible or schema-free NoSQL data stores, in-cluding graph databases
Modeling for DevOps
Data model reverse engineering (schema extraction)
Graph matching and graph transformation
Unified data modeling for polystores
Data model evolution
Visualization of data models and data instances
Modeling and concurrency control
Modeling sharding and replication strategies
Modeling for query optimization
Empirical studies and real-world use cases
Migrating software architectures to NoSQL data store
Workshop papers submission: July 16, 2021
June 16 (Deadlines extended)
Workshop papers notification: August 6, 2021
Final (camera-ready) version of papers: August 20,
Conference dates: October 18-21, 2021
The limit for submitted papers (as well as for final, camera-ready papers) is 10 pages. Short papers have a limit of 6 pages.
Authors should consult Springer's authors' guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form (Link will be added). The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
All submissions will be reviewed in a single-blind manner. All accepted papers will be made available as proceedings published by Springer.
Manuscripts not submitted in the LNCS style or exceeding the page limit will not be reviewed and automatically rejected.
Submission is done through EasyChair: easychair.org/conferences/?conf=comonos2021
