Requirements Engineering (RE) aims at capturing desired system functionality and qualities. Though often specified in natural language, such information is also captured in conceptual models for sharing a collaborative perception of requirements, to facilitate analysis, and to transform into architecture design and code.
In practice, requirements activities often fall under the heading of Business Analysis (BA), determining how a business can make use of technology in order to improve its operations, meet targets, and thrive in a competitive economy. Use of models in this context allows for an explicit consideration of business strategy, including operationalization of strategies in terms of system requirements.
The MReBA workshop arises from a revitalization of the RIGiM (Requirements, Intentions, and Goals in Conceptual Modeling) workshop series. MReBA aims to provide a forum for discussing the interplay between Requirements Engineering and conceptual modeling, and in particular how requirements modeling can be effectively used as part of business analysis.

Submissions should address the relation between Requirements Engineering and/or Business Analysis and conceptual modelling on the selected topic. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Modelling for Business Analysis and Business Intelligence
- Motivations/Intentions as part of Enterprise Modelling
- Goal-based Business Process Modelling
- Modeling for Enterprise Architecture
- Modelling for process (re-)engineering or selection
- Modelling and analysis of distributed systems
- Modelling for Knowledge Management/Acquisition/Sharing
- Modelling as part of collaborative RE/BA
- Goal/Intention-Oriented Requirements Engineering (GORE)
- Ontological perspectives on RE/BA models
- RE/BA language interoperability, integration, transformation
- Capturing laws, regulation, and compliance
- Industrial or systems requirements modeling
- Dealing with model uncertainty
- Visual notation for RE/BA models
- Analysis and reasoning, including decision support
- Modelling security, privacy, risk, and safety
- Capturing prioritization, customization and preferences
- Modelling methodologies, processes, and methods
- RE/BA model scalability, complexity, and modularity
- Model feedback and validation
- Industrial experiences and empirical studies related to RE/BA modelling

We aim for a highly interactive forum with an emphasis on discussion. The working language is English.
Workshop proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series. Thus, authors must submit manuscripts using the Springer-Verlag LNCS style for Lecture Notes in Computer Science. See for style files and details.

We solicit three types of papers: full papers (10 pages max), including technical papers and empirical evaluations (case studies, experience reports, surveys); position or vision papers (6 pages max); and industrial problem statements (6 pages max).
