UsARE 2017 -
3rd International Workshop on Usability and Accessibility 
focused Requirements Engineering
September 04, 2017, Lisbon, Portugal

In conjunction with the 25th IEEE International 
Requirements Engineering Conference (RE 2017)

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 sufficiently consider usability 
and accessibility requirements. This high risk practice 
can lead to project and software failure. Conversely, when 
poorly done, improving the usability and accessibility 
requirements during development can be very costly, time 
consuming, and even ineffective. Targeting these concerns, 
the workshop addresses the integration of system usability 
and accessibility requirements into the requirements 
engineering process, including processes for managing and 
controlling the evaluation of these requirements in a 
systematic way.

The UsARE 2017 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 requirement engineering.

The UsARE 2017 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 
(IEE 2016 formatting instructions: 
Submissions must be in PDF format and submitted 
electronically via EasyChair 

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 2017 
Proceedings published by IEEE and will be available online 
in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Note: At least one of the authors of each accepted paper 
is required to register for the workshop.

Submission deadline:		Friday, June 16, 2017 (Extended!)
Notification of acceptance:	Friday, June 30, 2017
Camera-ready submission:	Friday, July 14, 2017
Workshop:			Tuesday, September 04, 2017

Note that all submission deadlines are firm. All 
submission deadlines are 23:59 any where in the world.
