The 7th International Model-Driven Requirements Engineering (MoDRE) workshop
continues to provide a forum to discuss the challenges of Model-Driven
Development (MDD) for Requirements Engineering (RE). Building on the interest
of MDD for design and implementation, RE may benefit from MDD techniques when
properly balancing flexibility for capturing varied user needs with formal
rigidity required for model transformations as well as high-level abstraction
with information richness. MoDRE seeks to explore those areas of requirements
engineering that have not yet been formalized sufficiently to be incorporated
into a model-driven development environment as well as how requirements
engineering models can benefit from emerging topics in the model-driven
community, such as flexible modeling or collaborative modeling. This workshop
intends to identify new challenges, discuss on-going work and potential
solutions, analyze the strengths and weaknesses of MDD approaches for RE,
foster stimulating discussions on the topic, and provide opportunities
to apply MDD approaches for RE.
For more information, see the complete CFP at
or contact the organizers at modre2017-info at cs.mcgill.ca.
Submissions are welcome in all workshop topics including (but not limited to)
* Modeling languages and metamodels for requirements engineering approaches.
* Modeling languages and metamodels for supporting separation of concerns
in requirements models.
* Modeling languages and metamodels for non-functional requirements.
* Modeling languages and metamodels for requirements engineering for
specific domains, such as cyber-physical systems or Big Data applications.
* Synchronicity and consistency of different requirements models and views.
* Requirements models at runtime.
* Automatic analysis of requirements models.
* Automatic generation of tools for requirements engineering using MDD.
* Traceability and correctness of model transformations involving
* Empirical studies on model-driven requirements engineering.
* Simulation of requirements models. Flexible and collaborative modeling
in requirements engineering.
* Requirements models for simplicity and complementarity.
Moreover, industry papers covering topics such as the following are highly
* Industry problems and practices about model-driven requirements engineering.
* Success stories about adopting model-driven requirements engineering in
* Industrial empirical studies.
SUBMISSION AND PROCEEDINGS PUBLICATION
Participants are invited to submit four kinds of papers:
(1) Full research papers with a length of eight (8) to ten (10) pages,
reporting on findings for problems related to model-driven requirements
engineering that are novel and improve on or analyze existing solutions.
(2) Short research papers with a length of four (4) to five (5) pages,
reporting on initial work that may not yet have been fully developed.
(3) Position papers with a length of four (4) to five (5) pages, reporting on
ideas and visions for the future of model-driven requirements engineering.
(4) Industry Papers, with a length of four (4) to ten (10) pages, describing
experiences related to the adoption of model-driven requirements
engineering practices in the industry or highlithing future challenges.
Accepted papers will become part of the workshop proceedings and will be
submitted for inclusion into the IEEE Digital Library.
