istarT2017 Second International iStar Teaching Workshop


iStarT 2017 is the second edition of the iStar Teaching Workshop. We are collocated with ER2017 The 36th International Conference on Conceptual Modeling Nov. 6th-9th, 2017, in Valencia, Spain. While we wait for this edition to start, we have posted above a photo from the first edition, held in 2015.
In the past 20 years, Goal-oriented Modeling Languages and Methodologies have received a lot of attention, requiring analysts to learn how to use different kinds of models when compared to more traditional modeling approaches.
As a result, academic courses have been created in several Universities (both in the undergraduate and graduate levels) with the aim of educating future analysts regarding the existing Goal-oriented Modeling Languages and Methodologies. Moreover, in industrial settings, training is also required to enable practitioners to acquire skills related to the Goal-oriented paradigm.
Goal-oriented Modeling Languages and Methodologies include the i* framework, KAOS, GRL, GBRAM, and Techne (among others).
The istarT workshop is aimed at providing a forum where researchers and practitioners around the world may share their experiences in teaching about the Goal-oriented Modeling Languages and Methodologies, both in the academic and industrial settings.
