Call for Papers

In the last decades a growing number of groups around the world have been using the i* (iStar) modelling framework in their research on early requirements engineering, business process design, organization modelling, software development methodologies, and more.

Following successful workshops in Trento/Italy (2002), London/United Kingdom (2005), Recife/Brazil (2008), Hammamet/Tunisia (2010), Trento/Italy (2011), Valencia/Spain (2013), Thessaloniki/Greece (2014), Ottawa/Canada (2015), Beijing/China (2016), Essen/Germany (2017), and Tallinn/Estonia (2018), Salvador/Brazil (2019), Zurich/Switzerland (2020), St. John’s/Canada (2021), the Fifteenth International i* Workshop will take place on October 17th at Hyderabad, India, as part of 41st International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER'22).

As with previous editions, the objective of the workshop is to provide a unique opportunity for researchers in the area to exchange ideas, compare notes, promote interactions, and forge new collaborations.


Contributions should describe current and ongoing research related to the i* framework with maximum 6 pages in the new CEUR-ART single column format, which can be viewed online at or downloaded from This year, we welcome four types of papers: technical papers, empirical evaluation and experience reports, position papers, and tools papers.

Submissions should provide an overview of the research objectives and describe contributions, including any related tools and evaluation experience. Contributions should outline ongoing and future work and provide key references.

Tool papers should include references to download information, documentation, and system features. Authors of tool papers will be invited to present a demo in a tool fair during the workshop. We encourage those submitting a tool paper to create or update a page on the i* wiki. Contact [email protected] if you require a new user name and password for the wiki.

All submissions should be uploaded to easychair: Link coming soon.

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

*** About the iStar Workshop ***

The iStar workshop series is dedicated to the discussion of concepts, methods, techniques, tools, and applications associated with i* (iStar) and related goal modelling frameworks and approaches (Tropos, GRL, among others). As in previous editions, the objective of the workshop is to provide a unique opportunity for researchers in the area to exchange ideas, compare notes, promote interactions, and forge new collaborations. Expected outcomes include the communication of early results and new ideas to fellow researchers for feedback, the identification of the current problems and promising future research directions and the fostering of awareness, collaboration and interoperability in the area of tool development.

The focus of the iStar workshop series is quite specific and provides an additional forum for the RE community to exchange the latest ideas and research on goal modeling. In line with the ER’21 conference theme “Conceptual modeling to support Big Data Analytics and AI”, this edition of the iStar workshop series also seeks to explore how i* may be best applied to support analytics and AI. For example, how to capture requirements of AI systems using i*? How can i* aid in identifying relevant target users in AI and analytics? Can i* contribute to promote fairness in AI analytics?
