Fifth International i* Workshop (iStar'11)


Co-located with the 19th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE’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). This year, the workshop is including a Tools Fair, see description at the end of this message.

This research workshop complements the iStar Showcase’11 event being organized for 21 June, 2011 in London UK, aimed at promoting industry awareness and adoption. You may find timely information about this event at http://istar.rwth-aachen.de and http://www.city.ac.uk/informatics/school-organisation/centre-for-human-computer-interaction-design/istar11.


The objective of the workshop is 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 for discussion as for presentations – the actual 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, we plan to include further occasions for discussion in the program, in addition to the customary wrap-up session.

The program will also include a keynote talk.


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. Of particular interest are any assessments of i* and related frameworks, 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 https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=istar11

All submissions will be peer-reviewed and accepted works will be published in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings Series, http://sunsite.informatik.rwth-aachen.de/Publications/CEUR-WS/.
