Goal-oriented modelling languages are central in the information systems (IS) field, both for aligning new IS with organisational needs and for developing agent-oriented software systems. However, existing goal-oriented languages differ significantly in both syntax and semantics. The paper analyses and compares the syntax and semantics of GRL and KAOS using the UEML approach, providing a systematic and detailed comparison of the two languages, in part based on the Bunge-Wand-Weber (BWW) model and Bunge’s ontology. The work offers a path towards integrated management and use of models expressed in GRL and KAOS, it contributes to incorporating GRL and KAOS into version 2 of the unified enterprise modelling language, which is currently being developed.
