TEMOS at ICSOFT 2023 in Rome

Quality Measurement of Functional Requirements (authors: David Šenkýř and prof. Petr Kroha) is a paper presented by David at the 19th International Conference on Software Technologies (ICSOFT 2023). In this paper, the authors summarize their previous research regarding detecting requirements smells in textual documents – ambiguity, incompleteness, and inconsistency. Following the previous results, the authors present a metric to measure the quality of textual functional requirements specifications. Additionally, they propose how a tool using nature language processing and semantic networks (such as our TEMOS) could support analysts in their work.

The poster is available in the conference program.

Come and Hack Machine Actionability of Data Management Plans with us!

The Data Stewardship Wizard team invites experts and enthusiasts of semantic data, ontologies, FAIR and machine actionabliity to join us at ELIXIR BioHackathon on 9-13 November 2020 to work together on machine-actionable DMPs.

The event is virtual and free to attend. Register before 18 September.

Data Stewardship Wizard Helps to Fight COVID-19

Data Stewardship Wizard (DSW) developed in CCMi has become part of the VODAN-in-a-box  – a FAIR data storage solution for COVID-19 data. The DSW serves as a “CRF Wizard” for entering patient data. DData is stored in the RDF triple-store and metadata in the FAIR Data Point, so the solution fully meets the FAIR principles, i.e. the data is Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable, which is crucial for fighting  the pandemic.

The first VODAN-in-a-box installation took place at Kampala International University in Uganda.

“The Two Pillars” — IC3K 2019 Keynote Speech

Interested in the foundations of conceptual modelling? You may like to watch the keynote speech of Robert Pergl given in Vienna, September 2019.


In this keynote, I discuss two pillars of intellectual human endeavour: naming and hierarchies. I dig into the essence of these corner-stones of conceptualisation and explore their presence, significance and forms in various disciplines. Challenges of naming and hierarchies in engineering disciplines are discussed and lessons learned are formulated.

2nd Annual GO FAIR INs Meeting

This year, we again attended GO FAIR Implementation Networks Meeting (this time in Hamburg) with our international project Data Stewardship Wizard.Within its Implementation Networks, GO FAIR actively supports the implementation of FAIR principles – Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability a Reusability. The main topic was convergence in terms of finding and reusing standard solutions. The meeting was fascinating, full of exciting information on the border of information technology and work with data in the field of Life Science. From the perspective of our project, this was a great success as we have been mentioned in several presentations by speakers from various major European institutions. At the same time, we made new contacts and started cooperation with others.

A half-round EOMAS workshop took place

International Workshop on Enterprise & Organizational Modeling and Simulation (EOMAS) is a workshop that has been organized by CCMi for several years in partnership with its partners. This year, his 15th edition was held in Rome, again as a co-located event with the renowned CAiSE conference.

This year’s event was very successful, EOMAS enjoyed plentiful participation and interest, and very interesting and lively discussions took place. In this year’s edition, a considerable number of contributions from CCMi members were present: Marek Suchánek, Vojtěch Knaisl, Jan Slifka and David Šenkýř presented their contributions.

The participants also heard a very engaging and inspiring keynote by prof. Jan Verelst of the University of Antwerp, who lectures our popular subject MI-NSS.

This year’s novelty was a “Master & Doctoral Consortium”, which also gives skilful Master and Doctoral students the opportunity to present their results and, in particular, get feedback from prominent experts.

The organizing team is already looking forward to the EOMAS 2020. So, see you in Grenoble, France!


During the 13th international conference ICSOFT on 26–28 June 2018 in Porto (Portugal) David Šenkýř presented a paper entitled Patterns in Textual Requirements Specification (authors: David a prof. Kroha). During the presentation, the TEMOS (Textual Modelling System) was presented as a tool processes textual software system requirements with an ability to generate a UML class diagram and alerting the user about ambiguity and inconsistency in the

DS Wizard @ ELIXIR All Hands 2018


During the ELIXIR All Hands 2018 meeting, we (Robert & Marek) presented our progress on Data Stewardship Wizard in forms of a flash talk and a poster. The progress was quite significant, our team developed new portal solution purely with Haskell and Elm. It is  running and we got a lot of positive feedback:

ELIXIR-CZ Annual Meeting 2017

We participated in the ELIXIR-CZ Annual Conference 2017 in Třešť. We presented our work within the Interoperability platform, where we work on the international Data Stewardship Portal project and other projects such as ontology and UFO (A and B) application in the field of bone marrow donation. You can see our presentation below along with the photos from the event.

4th Annual Meeting of CCMi

On 24 October 2017, we held 4th annual meeting of the Centre for Conceptual Modelling and Implementation. Traditionally, during the initial formal part of the meeting participant presented themselves, their activity in the previous academic year and plans for the current one. Then we casually welcomed new members and discussed about various topics in the field of conceptual modeling, software engineering, cooperation, research and teaching students at our faculty…
