CALL FOR PAPERS: Sixth International i* Workshop (iStar'13)

Valencia, Spain, 17-21 June, 2013
Co-located with the 25th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE'13).

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), Hammamet (2010), and Trento (2011) it is time for another meeting focusing on i*, GRL, Tropos, and related frameworks, to exchange ideas, compare notes, and forge new collaborations.

We cordially invite you and members of your group to join us at the Sixth International i* Workshop. The 2-day workshop will be held in Valencia, Spain, 17-21 June, 2013, as a co-located event with the 25th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE'13). Following a successful Tools Fair in iStar'11, we will be accepting papers and demos concerning iStar-related tools.


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, describing current and ongoing research related the i* framework. The contribution shall adhere to the following structure:

All submissions should be uploaded to easychair.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed and accepted works will be published in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings Series.


The i* Workshop will include a slot for tool demos. The demos will consist of a two-minute presentation of two slides (automatic transition from one slide to the next will be enforced) and then the floor will be opened for demos.

In order to submit a tool, fill out a form providing information about your tool by creating a wiki page on the i* wiki (*+Tools). If a page on the wiki already exists for your tool, please update it as appropriate. Contact if you require a new user name and password for the wiki.

Prepare a three page description of the tool, using LNCS format. Descriptions should include a screen shot of the tool and should cover the following points:

All descriptions should be uploaded to easychair:

The tool submissions will be peer-reviewed and published in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings Series, as part of the iStar workshop proceedings.
