Workshop Motivation and Objectives
The Fourth 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 success 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. Reuse of requirements models becomes a distinct possibility with MDD and model transformations. 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.
"Dealing with NFRs in the MDD Process"
Xavier Franch is Associate Professor in the Group of Software and Service Engineering (GESSI) at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain. One of his research interests has long been in requirements engineering with highly regarded contributions in the area of non-functional requirements and goal modeling. He has published >150 refereed papers in international journals and conferences, serves on the Editorial Board of Elsevier IST and IJISMD, and is a member of the Steering Committee of RE, REFSQ, CAiSE, and the iStar workshop. Xavier was General Chair of RE'08, Program Co-Chair of ICSOC'14, CAiSE'12, REFSQ'11, and ICCBSS'06, and has co-organized numerous workshops held together with RE, ICSE, and CAiSE. He has been keynote speaker at RCIS and given invited talks at RE'04, IFIP WG 2.9, and Dagstuhl. He is Board Member of IREB.
The workshop is co-located with the 22nd IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE 2014) in Karlskrona, Sweden, in August 2014. Accepted papers will become part of the workshop proceedings and will be submitted for inclusion into the IEEE Digital Library.
