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.
RE’12 invites high-quality submi
