1st CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
Fifth International i* Workshop (iStar'11)
Trento, Italy, 29-30 August, 2011
Co-located with the 19th IEEE International Requirements Engineering
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,
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.
