Call for Tutorials

The 21st IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE’13) tutorial program will highlight tutorials on a variety of requirements-related topics of interest to industry, academia, and government to help attendees increase their knowledge, skills and awareness of established and emerging requirements engineering practices. Tutorial attendees can expect to leave a tutorial with new ideas and skills applicable to their profession or research area.

We invite you to submit proposals for full day (7-hour) or half-day (3.5 hour) tutorials. In addition to the topics listed below, we welcome proposals on any topic in requirements engineering and business analysis.

New at RE’13: We will be asking tutorial presenters to share a little about their tutorial during a “What did you miss out on during the tutorials?” session in the main RE conference (more information to come later).

Submission Instructions

Proponents should send an e-mail to both the RE’13 Tutorial Chairs, Maria Lencastre and Joy Beatty, no later than February 1st, 2013, to declare their intent to submit a proposal. Final submissions should then be e-mailed to both the chairs no later than the submission deadline of February 25th, 2013.

Tutorial proposals (length up to 1500 words), should include the following information:

  • Title and abstract - If the proposal is accepted, these items will appear in advertisements and on the conference website
  • Intended audience
  • Name and biographical sketch for each presenter
  • Length: full-day or half-day
  • Outline of topics
  • Number and type of interactive activities for tutorial attendees
  • For prior offerings of this tutorial, state the location, date, and number of attendees
  • Motivation for why this topic is relevant to the main conference
  • Plans for promoting the tutorial

We strongly encourage each proposal to include sample presentation materials, but this supplemental material must not exceed an additional 5 pages.

Sample Topics of Interest

  • Requirements elicitation and analysis
  • Requirements management, traceability, viewpoints, prioritization, and negotiation
  • Evolution of requirements over time and requirements reuse
  • Requirements specification languages, methods, processes, and tools
  • Modeling and analysis of business processes, systems goals, and domains of interest
  • Formal modeling, analysis, and verification of requirements
  • Prototyping, simulation, and animation of requirements
  • Relating requirements to business goals, architecture, and testing
  • Social, cultural, global, personal, and cognitive factors
  • Domain-specific problems, experiences, and solutions
  • Relating the requirements workflow to architecture and design workflows
  • Managing requirements-related complexity (e.g., problem complexity, solution complexity, organizational complexity)
  • Requirements engineering in agile development processes

Important Dates

  • Notice of intent to submit: February 1st, 2013
  • Tutorial proposals: February 25th, 2013
  • Notification of acceptance: March 8th, 2013
  • Tutorials: July 15th – 16th, 2013
