Fifth International i* Workshop (iStar'11)
Trento, Italy, 29-30 August, 2011


Co-located with the 19th IEEE International Requirements Engineering 
Conference (RE’11)

A growing number of groups around the world have been using the i* 
modelling framework in their
research on early requirements engineering, business process design, 
organization modelling,
software development methodologies, and more. Following successful 
workshops in Trento
(2002), London (2005), Recife (2008) and Hammamet (2010), it is time for 
another meeting focusing on
i*, Tropos, and related frameworks, where researchers can exchange 
ideas, compare notes,
and hopefully forge new collaboration with like-minded folk.

We are organizing the Fifth International i* Workshop, and cordially 
invite you and members of
your group to join us. The 2-day workshop will be held in Trento, Italy, 
29-30 August, 2011, as
a co-located event with the 19th IEEE International Requirements 
Engineering Conference (RE’11).


The workshop is aimed to share knowledge, stimulate discussion and 
foster new lines of research and collaboration among different groups. 
To support these goals, we will schedule as much time of discussion as 
presentation (the concrete time will depend on the final number of 
accepted papers). For every accepted paper, we will assign one 
discussant that will provide an initial position about the paper once 
presented, and then discussion will follow. If the schedule allows that, 
we plan also some additional discussion time in the program, in addition 
to the classical wrap-up session that we will for sure include.

We will also include a keynote in the program.


Contributions should be 4-6 pages in LNCS format, 
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html, describing current and 
ongoing research related the i* framework. The contribution shall adhere
to the following structure:

- Title, authors, abstract
- Section 1. Introduction.
- Section 2. Objectives of the research.
- Section 3. Scientific contributions. If you have tool support, please 
mention and describe it explicitly
- Section 4. Conclusions. Especially interesting any kind of assessment 
of the framework, including industrial experiences
- Section 5. Ongoing and future work
- References. Please restrict references to mainly your own work.

All submissions should be uploaded to easychair.


In this workshop we want also to update the community knowledge about 
the current offer of i* modeling and reasoning tools. Therefore we plan 
a session for tool demos. The session will consist on a 2-minute 
presentation of one slide (automatic transition from one slide to the 
next will be enforced) and the floor will be opened for demos. The 
proponents will be asked to fill a form describing the funcionalities 
and non-functionalities of the demonstrated tools. As a positive side 
effect, the consolidation of these forms will be used to update the 
corresponding wiki page.

Details about the submission will come soon.
