EROSS seminars take place every Wednesday until the 39th International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER 2020). Live seminars are presented on Microsoft Teams and recorded for later access. Each seminar is scheduled to last for 1 hour and will be followed by 30 minutes of Q&A.

In the previous seminars section, you will find the recordings, slides, and suggested references from past talks.

Q&A Session

Errata: both during the introduction of Prof. Enrico Franconi and in our newsletter, we have mistakenly associated ORM Solutions LLC with the development of Microsoft Visual Studio. However, the correct statement is that ORM Solutions LLC are the creators of NORMA, a plug-in for Microsoft Visual Studio. We apologize for the confusion we may have caused. Unfortunately, we cannot remove this statement in the original recording (available on Microsoft Teams), but it will be removed from any future uploads.
