CfP: Fourth International Workshop on Managing Requirements Knowledge (MaRK11)

Workshop in conjunction with the 19th IEEE Requirements Engineering Conference
Trento, Italy - August 30th, 2011

Submissions deadline May 20th, 2011

*** GOAL ***

MaRK11 focuses on potentials and benefits of lightweight knowledge management approaches, such as ontologies, semantic Wikis, recommender systems, and rationale management techniques - applied to requirements engineering. The workshop discusses emerging ideas, methodologies, frameworks, tools, as well as industrial experiences for capturing, representing, sharing, and reusing tacit knowledge in requirements engineering. Furthermore, the workshop provides an interactive exchange platform between the knowledge management communities, requirements engineering community, and industrial practitioners. 


The topics of the workshop include, but are not restricted to:

* Approaches for knowledge capture and sharing during requirements elicitation, specification, analysis and change management
* Automatic and context-aware capture of problem domain knowledge
* Mining requirements repositories
* Use of social media requirements engineering
* Intelligent assistance tools such as semantic search and recommendation on requirements
* Context-awareness tools for supporting requirements elicitation, analysis, traceability and reuse
* Context as source of knowledge
* Ontology-based requirements and traceability management
* Capture and maintenance of rationale information for volatile and evolving requirements
* Rationale management for variability, product lines and service-oriented architectures
* Patterns and templates in requirements engineering
* Empirical studies on advantages and drawbacks of particular knowledge management approaches


* Short papers (3-5 pages) state the position of the authors within the scope of the workshop, and can describe solution concepts in a premature state.
* Full papers (6-10 pages) describe problems, needs, novel approaches and frameworks within the scope of the workshop. Evaluations of new approaches are to be included in a full paper. Empirical evaluation papers and industrial experience reports are also welcome for submissions. 
* Posters and demo papers (1-2 pages) summarize work results.


Submissions are to be done via EasyChair from the workshop homepage.
Only electronic submissions are accepted. To be considered for review, a paper submission must be in the IEEE CS Press Proceedings format. ( ) Paper submissions must not exceed 5 pages for a position paper or 10 pages for a full paper. Submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three members from the MaRK'11 program committee. Papers will be accepted based on originality and relevance to the workshop. Accepted papers will be published as workshop proceedings in the IEEE Digital Library. At least one author should participate at the workshop.
