Super-concept in the concept-oriented model (COM) is a concept which is specified via inclusion relation when a new concept is defined (which is a sub-concept).

For example, since any bank account belongs to its bank and is defined within its bank then concept Account is included in concept Bank:

   CONCEPT Account IN Bank 
       IDENTITY 
           CHAR(10) accNo 
       ENTITY 
           DOUBLE balance 

If accounts are supposed to have sub-accounts then this new concept has to be included in concept Account:

   CONCEPT SavingsAccount IN Account 
       IDENTITY 
           CHAR(2) subAccNo 
       ENTITY 
           DOUBLE balance 

This definition means that many accounts can be created within one bank and many savings accounts can be created within one main account.
