******Workshop focus******

The recent advances in unraveling the secrets of human conditions and diseases have encouraged new paradigms for their prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. As the information is increasing at an unprecedent rate, it directly impacts the design and future development of information and data management pipelines; thus, new ways of processing data, information, and knowledge in health care environments are strongly needed.
The third edition of the workshop aims to continue being a meeting point for Information Systems (IS), Conceptual Modeling (CM), and Data Management (DM) researchers working on health care and life science problems. It is also an opportunity to share, discuss and find new approaches to improve promising fields, with a special focus on Genomic Data Management - how to use the information from the genome to better understand biological and clinical features - and Precision Medicine - giving to each patient an individualized treatment by understanding the peculiar aspects of the disease.
From the precise ontological characterization of the components involved in complex biological systems to the modeling of the operational processes and decision support methods used in the diagnosis and prevention of diseases, the joined research communities of IS, CM, and DM have an important role to play; they must help in providing feasible solutions for a high-quality and efficient health care.
The COVID-19 pandemic has attracted increasing attention to the genetic mechanisms of humans and viruses. CMLS may become an additional forum for discussing the responsibility of the conceptual modeling community in supporting the life sciences related to this new reality. This year – more than in the previous editions – we aim to welcome topics that have become of particular interest for the general ER community: conceptual modeling for big data analytics and AI-driven systems, particularly beneficial to life sciences disciplines.

******Topics of interest******

The third edition of the workshop focuses on Conceptual Modeling as a means for facing the challenges that emerge when designing and developing systems for life sciences, focused on genomics and precision medicine. The workshop is not restricted to specific research methods; we will consider both conceptual and empirical research, as well as novel applications.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Conceptual modeling for genomics
- Modeling of complex biological systems and of health ecosystems
- Information systems for healthcare, genomics, or medicine of precision
- Design, implementation, and evaluation of health information systems
- Electronic/digital health information systems
- Life science-related domain specific modeling languages
- Data management and integration for genomics and biology
- Ontologies and workflows for life sciences
- Clinical and biological data interoperability
- Interoperability of health information systems
- Knowledge-representation for genetics
- Business process modeling for genetic/clinical diagnosis
- Conceptual model-driven big data analytics for genomics, clinical diagnosis or biological problems
- Conceptual models for data-driven AI systems in life sciences
- Models for digital transformation of healthcare systems

As we wish to stimulate more discussion in the ER community regarding the use of models for life sciences, we welcome also “discussion papers”, particularly related to the following topics:

- Conceptual models in life sciences: from theory to practice
- Models to facilitate multidisciplinary exchange in healthcare contexts


CMLS 2022 Proceedings will be part of the ER 2022 Workshop volume published by Springer in the LNCS series. The authors must submit manuscripts using the Springer-Verlag LNCS style for Lecture Notes in Computer Science. For style files and details, see the page The page limit for workshop papers is 10 pages. Papers must be submitted as PDF files using EasyChair at

******Post-conference publication******

We are working towards a preliminary agreement with BMC Bioinformatics journal (2-year Impact Factor 3.169) for a post-conference supplement related to Conceptual Modeling in Life Sciences. If the agreement is reached, all the papers accepted to our workshop will be invited to submit a revised and extended version to the journal supplement.
