“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.
