Workshop Motivation and Objectives

The Eighth 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 26th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE 2018) in Banff, Canada, in August 2018. Accepted papers will become part of the workshop proceedings and will be submitted for inclusion into the IEEE Digital Library.

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.
