20th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference

 

The IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference is the premier requirements engineering conference. It grew out of two alternating biennial conference series, the IEEE Symposium on Requirements Engineering and the IEEE Conference on Requirements Engineering, which formally merged in 2002.

When Enrico Fermi withdrew the control rods from Chicago Pile-1 in December 1942, there was some uncertainty about what would happen next. Just as with the first nuclear reactor, complex system development often goes ahead with incomplete knowledge. Sometimes we cannot afford to wait until we know everything we would like to know. Sometimes we need to build the system to find it out.

The theme of RE'12 is how requirements engineers handle uncertainty; uncertainty about customer priorities, run-time contexts likely to be encountered, how the requirements will change over time, and so on. Computer systems are required to operate in increasingly complex business, human, social and physical environments. Characterizing uncertainty and mitigating its effects are key challenges for modern requirements engineering.

RESEARCH TRACK
==============

RE12 invites high-quality submissions in the following areas:

*Technical solution papers* present solutions for requirements-related problems that are novel or significantly improve existing solutions. The proposed solution technique or its application to this kind of problem must be novel and sound. The author(s) must provide a preliminary validation of the proposed solution, for example, a proof-of-concept and/or sound arguments that the solution technique will work and that it will scale to real-world-sized problems. Results must be stated clearly so that the author(s) or others can further validate them in later research. A technical solution paper should also be clear about its contributions with respect to related work by others and to previous work by the author(s). Technical solution papers must not exceed 10 pages.

*Scientific evaluation papers* evaluate existing problem situations or validate/refute proposed solutions with scientific means, i.e. by empirical studies, experiments, case studies, simulations, formal analyses, mathematical proofs, etc. Scientific reflection on problems and practices in industry also falls into this category. The topic of the evaluation presented in the paper as well as its causal or logical properties must be clearly stated. The evaluation method or analysis approach must be sound and appropriate. The research must be novel or, otherwise, the results must constitute a significant increase of knowledge. The results must be relevant and/or (statistically) significant. Furthermore, the research should be situated in the context of related work by others and previous work by the author(s). Scientific evaluation papers must not exceed 10 pages.

*Visionary papers* explore the history, successes, and challenges for various requirements related practices and research agendas, and outline research roadmaps for the future. Visionary papers are not short position papers nor brief emerging results (a la ICSE's NIER track), but their focus on history as well as challenges suggests an element of review and an element of unevaluated (but well argued) speculation. Visionary papers must not exceed 10 pages.

Eligible topics include anything related to the elicitation, analysis, specification, or verification of requirements. For a complete list of valid topics, please visit the RE12 website: http://www.re12.org.


INDUSTRY TRACK
==================

As an industrial contributor, you will be able to highlight challenges and, discuss ideas and new innovations in the field of requirements engineering with fellow practitioners, and researchers alike. You will have the opportunity to share interests and expectations, and influence the development of the field. RE12 will give you the opportunity to join the global network of requirements engineering experts and industrials. RE12 invites high-quality submissions in the following categories:

Problem statements present problems or challenges encountered in practice.
Experience reports present successes or failures encountered in practice.

Full papers (up to 6 pages) will appear in the IEEE digital library and be presented by the authors.
Short papers (up to 2 pages) will appear in locally printed proceedings and be presented by the authors.

Tool demos describe a new requirements-related tool to support industrial process, techniques for selecting a good tool, or overview of cutting edge tools.


OTHER CONTRIBUTIONS
===================
We also invite proposals for expert tutorials, workshops, panels, doctoral symposium contributions, posters, videos, and research demonstrations.


DO YOU NEED HELP?
=================

If you have never previously published at a major international conference, then you may be eligible for our mentoring program. Please check the RE12 website for further details.


ENJOY CHICAGO - THE WINDY CITY
============================

The conference will be held just steps from the Navy Pier and the Magnificent Mile in Chicago, Illinois. Chicago is known as a major hub for industry, telecommunications and infrastructure, and has been listed as one of the world's top ten global financial centers. City of blues, starting point of Route 66, home to several world-class Universities and headquarters of some of the world's best-known businesses including Boeing and Wrigley. Situated on beautiful Lake Michigan, Chicago is renowned for its distinctive skyline, five hundred parks, sports, food (home of the deep dish pizza), rich nightlife, and distinctive arts and music scenes.
