Abstract. T his paper considers the diff iculties faced by the stakeholders in general requirements engineering (R E ) . These difficulties range from the complexity of requirements gathering to requirements presentation . Affordable visualization techniques have been wide ly implemented to support th e re quirements engineering community . However, no universal characteristic s that could be associated with requirements completion have been identified so far . T he research focus of this paper is driven by the above considerations to introduce the icon - base d language comprising a set of icon notations, syntactic and semantics . Icon - based language would support the requirements engineering tasks that normally executed by stakeholders and provide a visual modelling language to unify the requirement activities . Research approach is recapitulate , first ly , by identifying the requirements engineering artefact, secondly by refining the icon artefact , and third ly , by integrating those two artefacts by means of requirements engineering process . The result aim ed at to make communication s more interactive and manageable by facilitat ing the exchange of information and to promote global understanding in any requirements development context across cultural and national boundaries. ...
