The IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE'14) is the premier international forum for researchers, practitioners, educators, and students to present and discuss the most recent innovations, experiences, and concerns in the discipline of requirements engineering.
RE'14 invites original submissions of research papers in the categories described below. RE'14 also welcomes submissions of industry papers and submissions for workshops, tutorials, panels and interactive events, poster and tool demonstrations, and the doctoral symposium.
Categories for Research Papers
- Technical solution papers present solutions for requirements-related problems that are novel or significantly improve on existing solutions.
- Scientific evaluation papers evaluate existing problem situations or validate/refute proposed solutions by scientific means such as empirical studies, experiments, case studies, simulations, formal analyses or mathematical proofs.
- Vision papers explore the history, successes, and challenges of requirements related practices and research agendas, and outline research roadmaps for the future.
Topics of Interest
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Requirements elicitation, analysis, documentation, validation, and verification
Requirements management, viewpoints, prioritization and negotiation
Requirements specification languages, methods, processes and tools
Modeling of requirements, goals and domains
Evolution of requirements over time, product families, variability and reuse
Relating requirements to business goals, architecture and testing
Formal analysis and verification
Social, cultural, global and cognitive factors in requirements engineering
Requirements related to safety, reliability, security, privacy and digital forensics
Requirements in agile, product line and model-driven development
Requirements in service-oriented, virtualization, embedded, cloud and mobile environments
Empirical studies, measurements and prediction
Tool support for requirements engineering
Industry and research collaboration, interdisciplinary insights, learning from practice, and technology transfer
Domain-specific problems, experiences, and solutions, including new and emerging domains
Papers must describe original work that has not been previously published or submitted elsewhere. Submissions must be written in English and formatted according to the IEEE formatting instructions.
The format of your paper must strictly adhere to the IEEEtran Proceedings Format. There are several versions of the IEEE style. Please make sure you use exactly the versions that are linked below.
Make sure your paper:
- does not exceed the page limit specified,
- is in PDF format,
- is in letter page size,
- does not have page numbers,
- has all fonts embedded in the PDF file,
- uses only scalable font types (like Type 1, TrueType) --- bit-mapped font types (like Type 3) are not acceptable,
- has all figures embedded in vector graphics (if not possible, use a high-resolution bitmap format of at least 300 dpi; do not use JPG, but a lossless format like PNG or GIF),
- has all text in figures and tables large enough and readable when printed,
- has a caption for every figure or table,
- has the title and all headings properly capitalized (cf. Section Help),
- has no orphans and widows (cf. Section Help), and
- does not use footnote references in the abstract.
The use of color in regular body text (e.g., in order to emphasize words, URLs, or citations) is discouraged due to reduced readability and greyscale printing. The use of color is allowed in figures, tables, listings, and in non-body text, such as source code, XML snippets, etc.
Accepted papers will be published as IEEE CS Press Conference Proceedings. All authors of all accepted contributions will be asked to complete an electronic IEEE Copyright form and will receive further instructions for preparing their camera-ready versions from Conference Publishing Solutions. Acceptance of a paper implies that one of the authors registers for the conference to present the submission; failure to do so by the early registration date will result in the paper being withdrawn from the conference proceedings. Conference proceedings will be submitted for inclusion into the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., by not placing it into the IEEE Xplore Digital Library) if the paper is not presented at the conference.
