The definition of the context of a system is one of the most relevant activities in the early phases of information systems engineering. It allows system engineers to narrow the system scope, by defining well established system boundaries. In practice, outlining a system context model is complex and cumbersome. In order to support context modeling, in this paper we propose a catalogue of context model elements expressed in i*, which can be reused as building blocks in the construction of context models for new systems. We describe the process used for the identification of a set of actors and dependencies recurrently appearing in several academic and industrial cases, and the process to store them into a catalogue of reusable i* context dependencies.
