RE'18 Call for Papers - 26th IEEE Intl. Requirements Engineering Conference
Banff, Canada, August 20-24, 2018
The 26th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE'18)
is the premier international forum for researchers, practitioners,
educators, and students to present and discuss the most recent research
results, innovations, experiences, and concerns in the discipline of
The RE'18 theme is *Crossing Boundaries and Increasing Impact*. The
boundaries between research, academia, industry, open (source)
communities, and government, as well as those between software
engineering and other areas, are of particular interest, especially if
crossing them can help increase the practical impact of the RE
techniques and community. We thus particularly encourage accounts of
innovative, solid research concerned with this theme. Any other topic
relevant to RE is equally welcome.
RE'18 welcomes submissions of research papers, industrial innovation
papers, data track papers and ongoing research papers, as well as
submissions for workshops, tutorials, panels and interactive events,
posters and tool demonstrations, and the doctoral symposium.
=== Key Dates ===
Research: Feb 16 for abstracts and Feb 28 for full papers
Industry: Mar 09 for abstracts and Mar 16 for full papers
RE@Next!: Mar 09 for abstracts and Mar 16 for full papers
Data: Apr 24 for full papers
Tutorials: Feb 02 for notices of intent and Feb 16 for proposals
Posters/Demos: Apr 22 for proposals
Doctoral: Apr 26 for research abstracts
Workshops: June 12 for full papers
All deadlines are 23:59 Anywhere on Earth (Standard Time).
=== New This Year ===
Papers from the Research track and from the Industrial Innovation track
can have up to 12 pages in length (up to 10 for the body plus up to two
for the references).
RE'18 will use a double-blind process to review and select papers from
the Research track and the RE@Next! track.
Structured abstracts are also encouraged.
Four candidates for the best paper award from the Research track and one
more from the Industry Innovation track will be invited to submit an
extended version of their work for a special issue of Springer’s
Requirements Engineering Journal (REJ).
=== Topics of Interest for Research Track ===
Elicitation and stakeholders: requirements elicitation, prioritisation,
and negotiation, design thinking and open innovation, innovation through
creativity, crowdsourcing and social media, social, cultural, and
cognitive factors, user feedback and usage monitoring, capturing and
understanding users’ needs.
Requirements analysis, specification and validation: natural language
approaches, model-driven approaches, formal approaches.
Requirements management: traceability, evolution and release planning,
reuse, tools and standards.
Pragmatic requirements engineering: good-enough requirements
engineering, agile and lean approaches, requirements engineering in open
Large-scale requirements engineering: complex systems, product lines and
value chains, software ecosystems, artificial intelligence, big data,
and cloud technologies, requirements engineering for smart cities,
cyber-physical systems, and systems of systems.
Global requirements engineering: geographically-dispersed teams,
culturally-divergent requirements efforts.
Domain-specific requirements engineering: embedded systems, open source
software, privacy and security, sustainability, services, mobility,
Quality engineering: user experience, quality factors, safety and
security, test approaches.
Product management: value creation techniques, product evolution,
requirements and marketing, requirements and law.
Industry and research collaboration: learning from practice,
transferring technology from academia to industry, transferring
technology across industries, transferring technology across domains,
identifying best practices, improving productivity.
Requirements engineering education and training
Empirical studies, measurements and prediction
Additional topics are cited for the other tracks.
