WS01 - AIRE

3rd International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Requirements Engineering - Monday, September 12, 2016

The primary purpose of this workshop is to explore how AI techniques can improve quality in RE. This workshop also aims to strengthen the links between the community and foster the communication between industry and academia, as well as between researchers working in this field. Finally, the workshop aims to build foundations for a common terminology and understanding both of the domain of requirements quality and AI, as well as the interplay between AI and RE.

WS02 - ESPRE

3rd Workshop on Evolving Security and Privacy Requirements Engineering - Monday, September 12, 2016

The Evolving Security and Privacy Requirements Engineering (ESPRE) Workshop will be a multi-disciplinary, one-day workshop that brings together practitioners and researchers interested in security and privacy requirements. ESPRE will probe the interfaces between Requirements Engineering and Security & Privacy, and take the first step in evolving security and privacy requirements engineering to meet a range of needs of stakeholders ranging from business analysts and security engineers, to technology entrepreneurs and privacy advocates.

WS03 - iRENIC

1st Requirements Engineering for Investigating and Countering Crime - Monday, September 12, 2016

The iRENIC workshop aims to explore the role of requirements engineering in the design of systems able to deliver better investigative capabilities and counter crime, for secure and safe societies. More specifically, iRENIC is intended to be a multi-disciplinary workshop that will bring together researchers and practitioners to identify new challenges, assess the status of RE approaches in tackling these challenges, create new opportunities for collaborations in this area, and to strengthen the frontier of RE research in this problem domain.

WS04 - iStar

9th International i* Workshop - Monday September 12 - Tuesday September 13, 2016

A growing number of groups around the world have been using the i* (iStar) modelling framework in their research on early requirements engineering, business process design, organization modelling, software development methodologies, and more. Following successful workshops in Trento (2002), London (2005), Recife (2008), Hammamet (2010), Trento (2011), Valencia (2013), Thessaloniki (2014) and Ottawa, Canada (2016). it is time for another meeting focusing on i*(iStar), GRL, Tropos, Techne, and related frameworks, where researchers can exchange ideas, compare notes, and hopefully forge new collaboration with like-minded folk. We are organising the Ninth International i* (iStar) Workshop , and cordially invite you and members of your group to join us. The 2-day workshop will be held in Beijing, China, 12-13 September, 2016.

WS05 - MoDRE

6th International Model-Driven Requirements Engineering Workshop - Monday, September 12, 2016

The 6th International Model-Driven Requirements Engineering (MoDRE) workshop continues to provide a forum to discuss the challenges of Model-Driven Development (MDD) for Requirements Engineering (RE). Building on the success of MDD for design and implementation, RE can benefit from MDD techniques when properly balancing flexibility for capturing varied user needs with formal rigidity required for model transformations as well as high-level abstraction with information richness. MoDRE seeks to explore those areas of requirements engineering that have not yet been formalized sufficiently to be incorporated into a model-driven development environment (e.g., requirements elicitation, mapping from requirements to architectural design models or from business to requirements models, collaborative requirements engineering, requirements sketching, as well as requirements negotiation and prioritization). Reuse of requirements models and management of requirements at runtime become distinct possibilities with MDD and model transformations. This workshop intends to identify new challenges, discuss ongoing work and potential solutions, analyze the strengths and weaknesses of MDD approaches for RE, foster stimulating discussions on the topic, and provide opportunities to apply MDD approaches for RE.

WS06 - RE4SuSy

5th International Workshop on Requirements Engineering for Sustainable Systems - Tuesday, September 12, 2016

The International Workshops on Requirements Engineering for Sustainable Systems (RE4SuSy) is concerned with research on techniques, tools, and processes for sustainability through requirements engineering. RE4SuSy is an interactive workshop: the contributors and prospective participants will engage well before the workshop date through on-line collaborative writing, discussion, and peer feedback. The workshop aims to foster community growth by supporting new collaborations, holding preliminary case studies, discussions, and birds-of-a-feather group work.

WS07 - RELAW

9th International Workshop on Requirements Engineering and Law - Tuesday, September 13, 2016

The RELAW workshop fosters discussion related to requirements engineering resulting from the need to build software systems that comply with laws, regulations, and policy documents. The theme this year is ''Delivering Value through Regulatory Compliance''. This theme highlights the many ways that regulatory compliance is necessarily technical and requires involvement from engineers. What can requirements engineers do to demonstrate the need for and value of techniques, tools, and processes that improve regulatory compliance in requirements engineering? How should requirements engineers evaluate or measure the social or economic value of their efforts to craft implementable requirements that are demonstrably compliant with laws and regulations? The workshop will bring together practitioners and researchers from auditing, accounting, law, software and requirements engineering.

WS08 - RePa

6th International Workshop on Requirements Patterns - Tuesday, September 13, 2016

Getting requirements right is oftentimes challenging and in need of a large amount of knowledge and experience. “Patterns” have been used to capture knowledge of software engineering, concerning software architectures, component designs and programs, and more recently requirements engineering. The International Workshop on Requirements Patterns (RePa) workshop series is motivated by the desire to provide an open forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas and experience, to develop pattern- based approaches to capturing, organizing, and reusing of all aspects of requirements engineering-related knowledge, from both process and product perspectives. Building on the success of the previous five editions of the International Workshop on Requirements Patterns (RePa’11 to RePa’15), the overall aim of RePa’16 is to promote and support the development and sharing of patterns, tools, methods, and repositories to facilitate pattern-based reuse at the requirements level.

WS09 - ReViSE

1st International Workshop on Requirements for Visualizations in Systems Engineering - Tuesday, September 13, 2016

The goal of the workshop is to provide a venue for the research community to discuss insights and challenges in eliciting and expressing requirements towards visualizations and visual notations used in the engineering of contemporary information intensive systems such as software applications or enterprise systems.

WS10 - IWSPM

9th International Workshop on Software Product Management - Tuesday, September 13, 2016

The workshop focus is on the management of software products and is therefore intertwined with requirements engineering practice and industry. It will complement RE-16 by bringing together leading minds, articles and debate in a key software engineering industry topic, enhancing the relevance of the conference to academia and industry.
