OBJECTIVES: Information modelling is becoming more and more important topic for researchers, designers, and users of information systems. The amount and complexity of information itself, the number of abstraction levels of information, and the size of databases and knowledge bases arecontinuously growing. Conceptual modelling is one of the sub-areas of information modelling. The aim of this conference is to bring together experts from different areas of computer science and other disciplines who have a common interest in understanding and solving problems on information modelling and knowledge bases, as well as applying the results of research into practice. We also aim at recognizing and pursuing research on new topics in the area of information technologies, to which more attention should be paid. Therefore philosophy and logic, cognitive science, knowledge management, linguistics and management science are relevant areas, too. In the conference, there will be four categories of presentations, namelyf ull papers, short papers and position papers.

TOPICS: Modelling of information is necessary in developing information systems. Information is acquired from many sources, by using various methods and tools. It must be recognized, conceptualized, ande fficiently organized so that users can easily understand and use it. Information modelling also helps to master the role and functions of particular components of a system. Modelling is aimed at many different purposes, performed at different levels, and by using different notions and background theories. It should emphasize users' conceptual understanding of a domain, and it can be oriented to the level of processes or algorithms, data and knowledge, as well as communication between agents and representation of a domain. Diverse notions, rules, theories, languages, and methods for modelling at different levels have to be aimed at common understanding and use in different situations, including emergency ones. In this conference the interest is focused on information technologies, knowledgere presentation, process management, and new trends in these, including time-sensitive structures and communication in a multi-agent world.S cientific or technical papers of high quality are welcome on the topics including, but not limited to the following list. The highest priority will be given to papers which are strongly related todifferent aspects of modelling.
