Norms such as laws and regulations are an additional source of requirements as they cause domain actors to modify their goals to reach compliance. However, norms can not be modeled directly as goals because of both an ontological difference, and an abstraction gap that causes the need to explore a potentially large space of alternatives. This paper presents the problem of deriving goals from norms and illustrates the open research challenges.
