The workshop welcomes submissions on all fact-orientated modeling approaches,
including ORM, CogNIAM, FCO-IM, PSM and related approaches (SBVR and OSM).
This year we had submissions from Australia, Belgium, Canada, Italy, Malaysia,
Norway, The Netherlands, and the USA, with each submission having 4 reviews.
Thanks to all the submitters and the Program Committee.
Presenters are requested to make their slides available
for posting to the ORM Foundation website.
The workshop program includes:
• 4 sessions of 2 or 3 paper presentations
• 1 session of 3 software tool demonstrations
• 1 working session on the common FBM metamodel.
Each paper presentation slot typically lasts 40 - 45 minutes.
Each paper presentation should be delivered within 30 minutes
allowing the rest of the slot for Q&A.
Each software tool demonstration should be completed in 10-30 minutes.
