Workshop Motivation and Objectives

The Seventh 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 may 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.

The workshop is co-located with the 25th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE 2017) in Lisbon, Portugal, in September 2017. Accepted papers will become part of the workshop proceedings and will be submitted for inclusion into the IEEE Digital Library.

Keynote Speaker - Martin Glinz: "Forty Years of Modeling in Requirements Engineering"

Martin Glinz

Martin Glinz is currently in the transition of becoming a professor emeritus. Until end of July 2017, he was a full professor of Informatics at the University of Zurich (UZH). He also was the department head of the Department of Informatics at UZH from 2007-2016. His interests include requirements and software engineering - in particular modeling, validation, and quality. As an emeritus, he is continuing his activities in requirements engineering research, teaching, and services. He received a Dr. rer. nat. in Computer Science from RWTH Aachen University. Before joining the University of Zurich, he worked in industry for ten years where he was active in software and requirements engineering research, development, training, and consulting. He is on editorial boards and program committees of major journals and conferences in software and requirements engineering. He served as Program Chair of the International Requirements Engineering Conference in 2006 and as General Chair of the International Conference on Software Engineering in 2012. He also chaired the steering committee of the IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference from 2007-2009. He is a member of the International Requirements Engineering Board (IREB), where he chairs the IREB Council. In 2016, he received the ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Service Award and the IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference Lifetime Service Award.

Overview of Workshop Format

The format of the workshop reflects the goals of the workshop: constructive feedback for accepted workshop papers, collaboration, and community building. The workshop will be highly interactive with a few paper presentations, a keynote presentation currently planned for the pre-lunch session, and plenary brainstorming and general discussion sessions. The discussion topics are chosen based on the specific interests of the participants. The short presentations and the results of the brainstorming and discussion sessions are posted on the workshop website after the workshop.

A group dinner in the evening of the workshop day offers further opportunities of community building and discussions.
