Next-Generation Enterprise Modelling in the Age of Internet of Things

The summer school will take place at the premises of the University of Vienna, Faculty of Computer Science and offers a two-week program combining lectures and practical work in groups based on four topical pillars. The underlying topic is engineering of modelling toolkits. The NEMO summer schools focus on the conceptualization, design, and implementation of Next Generation Enterprise Modelling Methods. In today‘s enterprises, modelling methods are widely used on every level and they are mostly supported by modelling tools. These tools ease the design of machine-processable models and provide facility services, e.g. for accessing, exchanging and persistently storing meta-models and models, for applying algorithms and querying model contents. Additionally, they enhance the value of models as organisational knowledge platforms. Modelling tools and platforms which support domain-specific methods need to provide user interaction functionalities and enable management capabilities for the execution environment in addition to the modelling method design and implementation.

The generic modelling method framework proposed by Karagiannis and Kühn (2002) comprises all the necessary ingredients for the conceptualization, i.e. early development and prototyping phases of modelling tools for domain-specific modelling methods. 

 Summer School Package

The “Next Generation Enterprise Modelling” summer school comprises not only courses dealing with foundations, technologies, application domains and cross-cutting issues of Conceptual Modelling, but also lodging, boarding as well as a social program for participants.

The summer school package includes:

  • Registration fee;
  • Accommodation (hotel) and breakfast;
  • Coffee breaks and lunches for two weeks;
  • A two-week program, where students will attend lectures in the morning and work on practical assignments in working groups each afternoon;
  • Use of campus facilities;
  • Handouts, case study books and other relevant teaching material;
  • A social event.

Application Procedure

To apply for admission students have to  complete the registration form (web form) and submit it electronically together with all required application material:

  • Recommendation letter
    The letter has to be scanned and must be bearing the referees signature.  It should be written on official university letterhead paper by a person from your academic area, preferably a professor or lecturer. If the letter was not issued in English please attach also a certified copy.
  • Motivation letter
    Applicants must provide a written statement of motivation (with a maximum length of one page).  The language of your motivation letter must be English.
  • Curriculum vitae (using the Europass CV Template, in English).

The complete application material must be submitted electronically via:

Students are strongly advised to apply as early as possible. Please note that applications will not be reviewed if not all materials have been received. After April 30th, 2018 selected applicants will be informed via e-mail. It is advised to check the e-mail account on a regular basis after the application.

Application Requirements

Applicants must be enrolled at a university either as Master or PhD-students. They are eligible at any point in their study programmes. If selected applicants must attend for the whole duration of the summer school. They must take part in the lectures, participate in the working groups and are expected to have an adequate command of the English language.


The “Next-Generation Enterprise Modelling” summer school provide a highly-interactive experimental environment where students and teachers focus on the domain “modelling” addressing especially:

  • Foundations of Conceptual Modelling, i.e. formal methods and tools for modelling method creation, transformation and application.
  • Technologies for Conceptual Modelling, i.e. model execution technologies, meta-modelling platforms, modelling compilers, adaption to diverse devices and multi-client applications.
  • Application Domains, i.e. Enterprise Information Systems, e-Government, Health Care and Ambient Assisted Living.
  • Cross-cutting Issues, i.e. information security, privacy, risk management and governance, and quality assurance of models and methods.
