Environment Modeling-based Requirements Engineering

Speaker: Zhi Jin, Professor of Computer Science, Peking University
Meeting Date: Thursday, July 15, 2021
Time: Checkin via Zoom for presentation at 5:00 AM (PDT)
Cost: none
Reservations: via the Computer Society website
Summary: This talk will introduce a systematic approach to identifying and modeling the requirements of software-intensive systems from a well-modeled environment simulation. In addition, it will provide a new view of software capability, i.e. effect-based software capability in terms of environment modeling. The ontologies for modeling software-intensive systems are described and the guidelines are provided, showing how to conduct the identification of the functional and non-functional requirements based on the properties of the software’s surroundings. It will give system analysts and requirements engineers insight into how to recognize and structure problems in developing software-intensive systems.
Bio: Zhi Jin is a professor of Computer Science and the deputy director of Key Lab of High Confidence Software Technologies (MoE) at Peking University. Her research work is primarily concerned with requirements engineering and knowledge-based software engineering. Recently, she pays more attention to the modeling of self-adaptive systems. She has been principle investigator of over 15 national competitive grants including the chief scientist of a national basic research project (973 project) of the Ministry of Science and Technology of China, the project leader of three key projects of National Natural Science Foundation (NSF) of China and the project leader of key international collaborative project of NSF China. She is the co-author of four books and author/co-author over 150 journal and conference publications. Zhi is a Senior Member of IEEE and Fellow of the China Computing Federation (CCF).
