Supporting sustainability has recently become a much discussed research topic and the RE4SuSy workshop series has established a strong and growing research community around the different aspects of sustainability. Software is increasingly the driver for change in business and social spheres of life: it changes life styles and business practices. Since requirements define how and what the software will do, we maintain that requirements engineering is the key point in software engineering through which sustainability can be fostered. The International Workshops on Requirements Engineering for Sustainable Systems (RE4SuSy) is concerned with research on techniques, tools, and processes for sustainability through requirements engineering. RE4SuSy is an interactive workshop: the contributors and prospective participants will engage well before the workshop date through online collaborative writing, discussion, and peer feedback. The workshop aims to foster community growth by supporting new collaborations, holding preliminary case studies, discussions, and continuous birds-of-a-feather group work.

As of 2015, RE4SuSy is part of the newly formed GREENS alliance that brings together all workshops around sustainability in software engineering and aims at strengthening the community.


The workshop solicits a number of contribution types:

* Full papers of 10 pages;
* Short papers of 6 pages;
* Posters with a 2-page abstract;
* Videos of up to 5 minutes (also with 2 pages abstract);
* Open collaboration papers (long or short) (new submission format).

We encourage the submission of new and interactive formats, which can be presented as such at the workshop, and published in the workshop proceedings with textual descriptions. Please adhere to the standard RE'15 formatting.

Important dates:

* Shepherding: Four weeks before the submission deadline, authors are invited to upload the preliminary abstracts, outlines, or papers for a constructive feedback phase. Other authors and interested PC members can comment on them so the authors can improve their papers before the actual submission.
* Submission Deadline: June 9th, submission via easychair.
* Decisions to authors: June 30th.
* Camera Ready due: July 15th.
* Registration of at least one author until July 5th (to be confirmed).
* Reading: In a pre-workshop reading phase from the CR deadline until the workshop, we provide the camera-ready version papers in a protected download area for authors and PC members. That way participants are already engaging with the contents before the actual workshop and discussion is facilitated.
