Foreword: This book contains the proceedings of the First International Symposium on Business Modeling and Software Design (BMSD 2011) which was organized and sponsored by the Interdisciplinary Institute for Collaboration and Research on Enterprise Systems and Technology (IICREST), in cooperation with the Center for Telematics and Information Technology (CTIT), the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC), and Technical University of Sofia; the symposium was technically co-sponsored by Sofia Municipality and QlikTech Netherlands B.V. BMSD 2011 provides a platform to researchers and practitioners interested in business modeling and its relation to software design. The scientific areas of interest to BMSD 2011 are: (i) Business Models and Requirements; (ii) Business Models and Services; (iii) Business Models and Software; (iv) Information Systems Architectures. Each year, a special theme is chosen, for making presentations and discussions more focused. The theme of BMSD 2011 is: Business Models and Advanced Software Systems. Building adequate business models is of huge importance not only for understanding and re-engineering an organization but also for automating (part of) its processes by means of software systems. Not grasping correctly and exhaustively a business system would inevitably lead to consequent software failures. BMSD 2011 has addressed these challenges, by considering a large number of research topics: from more abstract ones, such as essential business models to more technical ones, such as software specification, from more business-oriented ones, such as business process management and coordination, and requirements specification to IT architectures -related topics. We expect the technical program that approaches these topics to appeal to a global audience of engineers, scientists, and business people interested in the BMSD areas. We believe the current proceedings highlight challenging technical problems and present innovative solutions relevant to the mentioned topics. BMSD 2011 received 58 paper submissions from which 22 papers were selected for publication in the current proceedings. From these, 10 papers were selected for a 30-minutes oral presentation (Full Papers) and 12 papers (including several Invited Papers) were selected for a 20-minutes oral presentation (Short Papers and Special Session Papers). Hence, the full-paper acceptance ratio of 17% shows a high level of quality, which we intend to maintain and reinforce in the following editions of this symposium. All presented papers will soon be available at the SciTePress digital library. Furthermore, the authors of around ten selected papers presented at BMSD 2011 will be invited by Springer-Verlag to submit extended and revised versions of their papers for publication in a Springer LNBIP Series book, and the authors of around five selected papers presented at BMSD 2011 will be invited to submit extended and revised versions of their papers for publication in a special issue of the international journal Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures (EMISA). The high quality of the BMSD 2011 programme is enhanced by four keynote lectures, delivered by distinguished guests who are renowned experts in their fields, including (alphabetically): Mehmet Aksit (University of Twente, The Netherlands), Dimitar Christozov (American University in Bulgaria - Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria), Hermann Maurer (Graz University of Technology, Austria), and Bart Nieuwenhuis (University of Twente, The Netherlands). In addition, the keynote lecturers and other BMSD’11 participants will take part in informal discussions focused on community building and project acquisition. These high points in the symposium program would definitely contribute to positioning BMSD as a high quality event driven by a stable and motivated community. Building an interesting and successful program for the symposium required the dedicated effort of many people. Firstly, we must thank the authors, whose research and development efforts are recorded here. Secondly, we thank the members of the program committee for their diligence and expert reviewing. Further, we appreciate the willingness of SciTePress to publish the current proceedings, expressing also special gratitude to Vitor Pedrosa for the brilliant work and support in preparing the proceedings. We also wish to include here a word of appreciation for the excellent organization provided by the IICREST team, who have smoothly and efficiently prepared the most appropriate environment for a productive meeting and scientific networking. Last but not least, we thank the keynote lecturers for their invaluable contribution and for taking the time to synthesize and deliver their talks. We wish you all an inspiring symposium and an unforgettable stay in the beautiful city of Sofia. We hope to meet you again next year in Geneva, for the Second International Symposium on Business Modeling and Software Design (BMSD 2012), details of which will be made available at http://www.is-bmsd.org.
