About us

Our Status

Centre for Conceptual Modelling is a Centre of Excellence at Faculty of Information Technologies (FIT) of Czech Technical University in Prague. The core of the group is formed by the Department of Software Engineering, however we cooperate tightly with the rest of the University, mostly with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FEL). We cooperate with several partners.

Our vision

To be a top partner for research and industry in the area of conceptual modelling — see the homepage for the main idea, why we are enthusiastic about conceptual modelling. Because this area of expertise is not publicly well-known yet, our vision is also to contribute to a broad understanding of importance of conceptual modelling.

What we do

We are interested in methodologies and tools for modelling complex realities (domains) at the conceptual level. We are interested in methodologies that:

  • Are based on strong formalism.
  • Have a high expressive power.
  • Are practical for business use.
  • Have a high potential to create a business leverage when used properly.

We are also interested in models transformations, especially into software implementations, which are a strongpoint of the Faculty. We focus on conceptually-oriented programming languages.

You may enjoy watching Bret Victor’s fascinating lecture Inventing on Principle. We are highly aligned to his understanding how excellence at innovation works.
