Requirements Engineering Journal, Special Issue on RE 2018

Amyot D., Maalej, W. (Guest Editors), paper descriptions and editorial, September 2019.

Survey paper on URN

Amyot, D. and Mussbacher, G. (2011) User Requirements Notation: The First Ten Years, The Next Ten Years. Invited paper, Journal of Software (JSW), Vol. 6, No. 5, Academy Publisher, May 2011, 747-768.

I joined EECS in February 2002, after a few years as Senior Researcher at (Mitel Networks). From 2002 to 2013, I was Associate Rapporteur on Formal languages and telecommunication software at the International Telecommunication Union (ITU-T), where I led the development of the User Requirements Notation (URN) standard. I also lead the development of the jUCMNav tool for URN modeling and analysis. My research interests span many domains, from requirements/software engineering to modelling (goals and business processes), regulatory compliance, healthcare informatics, and smart contracts. I hold a Ph.D. and a M.Sc. from the University of Ottawa (2001 and 1994), as well as a B.Sc. from Laval University (1992), all in Computer Science. I am a member of OIQ (professional engineer) and Senior Member of IEEE.

I am on the Editorial Boards of the following journals:

I am member of the International Advisory Board of the International Journal of Extreme Automation and Connectivity in Healthcare (IJEACH), member of the Steering Committee of the IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference, and Chair of the SDL Forum Society.

I am also affiliated with the following research organizations:

I am involved in the following conferences, so please submit papers and participate!
