A growing number of groups around the world have been using the i* modelling framework in their research on early requirementsengineering,business process design,organization modelling,software development methodologies, and more. Following successful workshops in Trento (2002), London (2005) and Recife (2008), 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 Fourth International i* Workshop – istar’10, and cordially invite you and members of your group to join us. The 2-day workshop will be held in the city of Hammamet, Tunisia, 07-08 June, 2010. The workshop will start at 9:00 AM Monday morning and finish at 5:00 PM Tuesday afternoon.
