UsARE 2016 -
IEEE/ACM 3rd International Workshop on Usability and 
Accessibility focused Requirements Engineering
May 15, 2016, Austin, TX, USA

In conjunction with the 38th ACM/IEEE International 
Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2016)

Usability and accessibility issues are common causes for 
software failing to meet user requirements. However, 
requirements engineers often focus on functional 
requirements and may not fully elicit usability and 
accessibility requirements. This high risk practice can 
lead to project and software failure and it is well known 
that improving the usability and accessibility 
requirements during development is relatively costly and 
time consuming. Targeting these concerns, the workshop 
addresses the integration of system usability and 
accessibility requirements into the requirements 
engineering process and processes for managing and 
controlling the evaluation of these requirements in a 
systematic way.

The UsARE 2016 focuses on usability and accessibility 
requirements for IoT (Internet of Things) including mobile 
and wearable computing.

The UsARE 2016 workshop is dedicated to observations, 
concepts, approaches, frameworks and practices that 
promote understanding, facilitating, and increasing the 
awareness of the role of system usability and 
accessibility requirements and their proper integration 
into the requirement engineering process.

The UsARE 2016 workshop strongly encourages submissions 
that focus on usability and accessibility requirements for 
IOT (Internet of Things) including mobile and wearable 
computing, but submissions on other relevant topics are 
also welcome.

Topics of interest for paper submissions include, but are 
not limited to methodologies, frameworks, concepts, and 
tool support for:

- User-centered requirements engineering
	* Elicitation, representation, and negotiation of 
usability and accessibility requirements
	* Evaluation of usability and accessibility requirements
- Impacts of RE and usability/accessibility considerations 
on software design and development processes and products
- Usability and accessibility requirements management
- RE at run-time for usable and accessible, adaptable and 
adaptive systems
- Usability and accessibility requirements for mobile and 
distributed apps and services

Papers are solicited in the following categories:

- Research papers (technical solutions and empirical 
- Practice papers (experience reports and problem 
- Tool demonstration papers
- Case studies and best practices

Full papers (up to 7 pages) including references and 
short/position/vision papers (up to 4 pages) including 
references are accepted.

Submissions must be written in English and conform to the 
(ICSE 2016 formatting and submission instructions: Submissions 
must be in PDF format and submitted electronically via 

All papers submitted to the workshop must be unpublished 
original work and must not have been submitted elsewhere 
for publication. The selection of papers will be based on 
workshop relevance, academic rigor, innovation, industrial 
applicability, quality of writing and for their ability to 
trigger discussions.

Accepted papers will be included in the UsARE 2016 
Proceedings published by IEEE and ACM and will be 
available online in the IEEE xplore Digital Library and 
ACM Digital Library.

*** The official publication date of the workshop 
proceedings is the date the proceedings are made available 
in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two 
weeks prior to the first day of ICSE 2016. The official 
publication date affects the deadline for any patent 
filings related to published work.

Submission deadline:		Friday, January 29, 2016
Notification of acceptance:	Friday, February 19, 2016
Camera-ready submission:	Friday, February 26, 2016
Workshop:			May 2016 (final date to be decided)

Note that all submission deadlines are firm. All 
submission deadlines are 23:59 anywhere on Earth (AoE).
