This paper discusses several important future research directions in conceptual modeling. Since this field is very broad, the list of topics discussed here is not an exhaustive list but rather the “partial” composite views of the coauthors on the important issues from their own perspectives. Some of the important issues are omitted because they were covered extensively in [1], and the readers should also read the papers in that volume to get a more comprehensive view of where the field is going. Also, the selection of research topics is independent of their difficulties. Some of the research problems discussed here could be solved in the next decades while the others may take much longer to develop a reasonable solution.
