Intentional Perspectives on Information Systems Engineering by Michel Léonard (auth.), Selmin Nurcan, Camille Salinesi,

By Michel Léonard (auth.), Selmin Nurcan, Camille Salinesi, Carine Souveyet, Jolita Ralyté (eds.)

Requirements engineering has lengthy said the significance of the suggestion that process specifications are stakeholder ambitions – instead of process capabilities – and should be elicited, modeled and analyzed consequently.

during this publication, Nurcan and her coeditors have amassed 20 contributions from best researchers in details structures engineering, offering a entire evaluation of today’s varied views at the suggestion of purpose within the info structures group. those unique papers honor Colette Rolland for her contributions to this box – she was once most likely the 1st to stress that ‘intention’ needs to be regarded as a first class idea in info platforms engineering. Written by means of long term collaborators – and regularly pals – of Colette Rolland, this quantity covers themes like goal-oriented standards engineering, model-driven improvement, technique engineering, and company modeling.

As such, it's a travel d’horizon of Colette Rolland’s lifework, and it used to be awarded to her at the get together of her retirement at CAiSE 2010 in Hammamet, the convention that she cofounded after which nurtured and supported for over 20 years.
