The 1st International Workshop on Conceptual Modeling in Requirements and Business Analysis

There is a new workshop on requirements and business analysis, the 1st International Workshop on Conceptual Modeling in Requirements and Business Analysis. The workshop is collocated with the 2014 International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER 2014).

From the Call for Papers:

The MReBA workshop aims to provide a forum for discussing the interplay between Requirements Engineering topics and conceptual modeling, and in particular how requirements modeling can be effectively used as part of business analysis and systems engineering. We ask: What are the fundamental objectives and premises of requirements engineering and conceptual modelling respectively, and how can they complement each other? What conceptual modelling techniques can be taken advantage of in requirements engineering? How can RE modeling be applied successfully in a business environment? What lessons are there to be learnt from industrial experiences? What empirical data are there to support the cost-benefit analysis when adopting RE modeling methods? Are there applications domains or types of project settings for RE/BA modeling approaches are particularly suitable or not? What degree of formalization and automation or interactivity are feasible and appropriate for what types of participants during RE/BA modeling?

I hold the Senior Researcher (Chercheur qualifié) position with the Belgian national research fund (Fonds de la Recherche Scientifique – FNRS, Brussels) and am Associate Professor with the Department of Business Administration, University of Namur. My principal research interest is in method engineering and method automation, focusing on the elicitation, modeling and analysis of knowledge that human experts apply in problem solving and decision making, the engineering of ontologies and processes capturing that knowledge, and the automation of the said processes. This interest falls within the various research fields concerned with the transfer, preservation and automation of knowledge. I am the author of “Analysis and Design of Advice” (Springer, 2011) and have published over 50 research papers on these topics within the fields of requirements engineering, business analysis, and conceptual modeling of information systems. I organize and chair the series of International Workshops on Modeling and Reasoning for Business Intelligence (MORE-BI), held in Brussels in 2011 and Florence in 2012. I serve on scientific committees of the IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE), the International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE), and the International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER). In parallel, I am / have been involved with several startups at CxO level and have held lead roles in Product Design for web and digital services that today serve more than 500.000 people every day.
