The amount and complexity of information itself, the number of abstraction levels of information, and the size of databases and knowledge bases are continuously 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 to practice. We also aim to recognise and study new areas on modelling and knowledge bases 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 threecategories of presentations, i.e. full 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 recognised, conceptualised, and conceptually organised efficiently so that users can easily understand and use it. Modelling is needed to understand, explain, organise, predict, and reason on information. It also helps to master the role and functions of components of information systems. Modelling can be performed with many different purposes in mind, at different levels, and by using different notions and different background theories. It can be made by emphasising users' conceptual understanding of information on a domain level, on an algorithmic level, or on representation levels. On each level, the objects and structures used on them are different, and different rules govern the behaviour on them. Therefore the notions, rules, theories, languages, and methods for modelling on different levels are also different. It will be useful if we can develop theories and methodologies for modelling, to be used in different situations, because databases, knowledge bases, and repositories in knowledge management systems, developed on the basis of models and used to technically store information, are growing day by day. In this conference the interest is focused on modelling of information, and one of the central topics might be modelling of time. Scientific or technical papers of high quality are sought on topics including, but not limited to the following. The highest priority will be given to papers which are strongly related to different aspects of modelling. 1. Theoretical and Philosophical Basis of Concept Modelling and Conceptual Modelling 1.1. Information recognition, conceptualisation, and concept formation 1.2. Properties of concepts, systems of concepts, and theories of concept systems 1.3.

Conceptual Models of Intelligent Activities 3.1. Cognitive strategies for model construction 3.2. Conceptual modelling and problem solving 3.3.
