Call for Student Volunteers

Participation in the 24th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE'16) is a great opportunity for students interested in all aspects of requirements engineering to get in touch with the latest advances in the field and to meet with leading academic and industrial researchers as well as practitioners. Being engaged in the Student volunteer program is also an excellent way of meeting other students from all over the world and to offset most of the costs of attending the RE conference.

The success of the past RE conferences greatly depended on the lively participation and dedicated work of the student volunteers. For RE'16 we are looking for a number of highly motivated student volunteers that will be part of making the conference unforgettable.


  • free conference registration
  • free admission to tutorials or workshops (space permitting!)
  • free conference proceedings
