My paper on "Client Scenarios" just published on IEEE Proceedings

My recently accepted and presented short paper on
"Exploring the Tension between User’s and Main Stakeholder’s Goals: The Role of Client Scenarios" has been just published on the IEEE Proceedings of the 1st Workshop on The Web and Requirements Engineering (WeRE'10), held within the 18th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference 2010 in Sydney, Australia.

Paper abstract:
This paper introduces the notion of Client Scenario as a conceptual tool to characterize and address the tension between user and main stakeholder's goals in web requirements analysis. As complementary to traditional user scenarios, Client Scenarios assume the perspective of the main stakeholders of an interactive application in projecting stakeholder-desired behaviors on the user experience. Client scenarios are an important variation over a commonly used technique in requirements engineering (scenarios in general) and can facilitate web designers, requirements analysts and project managers to elicit and model a comprehensive set of requirements from different viewpoints, as they complement the considerations of the user's needs with the communication and business goals of large web applications.

WSE 2011 Special Theme is Access for All. Since WSE 2001 in Florence, over the last decade there have been numerous advances related to the accessibility of Web applications for the disabled, including multilingual Web sites, beyond-desktop (non-PC) devices for Web content, and new navigation paradigms and technologies. These advances have profound implications for the systematic evolution of modern Web applications. Starting from this special theme, WSE topics of interest include, but are not restricted to, the following aspects of Web systems design, development, maintenance and evolution:

Accessibility of Web systems
Mobile Web systems
Model-driven reengineering and re-design of Web systems
Requirements Evolution for Web Systems
Migration towards Web 2.0, SOA, and the Cloud
Web systems with self-adaptive and autonomic features
Novel Web paradigms and their impact
Traceability of Web systems
Reverse engineering and analysis of Web systems
Security and privacy in Web systems
Evaluation, testing and quality assessment of Web systems
Multilingual Web systems
Semantic Web
Empirical studies of Web systems
