Call for Workshops

A series of workshops will be held in conjunction with the 21st IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE’13) to facilitate the creation and exchange of ideas between academia, industry, and government participants. Workshops shall provide a setting for presenting challenges to researchers and practitioners of requirements engineering as well as working together with experts in the field to overcome those challenges. Workshops will be held before the main conference on July 15th and 16th, 2013.

Workshop Proposal Guidelines

Proposals must be written in English and not exceed four pages in length. Proposals should contain:

1. Motivation and objectives of the workshop

  • 2-3 sentences with the motivation and objectives of the workshop topic. (Note: If your workshop is accepted then this description will be used as early publicity for the workshop.)
  • A more detailed discussion of the anticipated outcomes of the workshop (e.g., open research problems to pursue, validation objectives, empirical studies, etc.).

2. Workshop format and needed services

  • What will be the format for the workshop (e.g., paper presentation and discussion, keynotes, breakout sessions, panel-like discussions, experiments, or a combination thereof)?
  • How do you plan to make the workshop interactive and result-oriented?
  • Which roles and responsibilities will you assign to participants during the workshop (e.g., presenter, discussant, facilitator, etc.)?
  • We intend for the workshops to present their results during the main conference. Please propose one or more ideas for how this should be done.
  • What are the requirements in terms of rooms, equipment, and support staff (i.e., student volunteers)?
  • Workshop organizers can work with the co-chairs to specify the services and facilitation support that they wish to employ.

3. Target audience

  • What backgrounds should the workshop attendees have?
  • What is the range (min, max) for number of attendees for the workshop?
  • Is the workshop open to the public or by invitation only?
  • What mix of industry and research participants is being sought?

4. Workshop contributions and evaluation

  • What types of contribution are being solicited for the workshop (e.g., full papers, position papers, posters, demos, experiments, or other interactive sessions)?
  • What type of evaluation process will be used?
  • The potential program committee (i.e., how large will the PC be)?
  • How do you intend to measure the level of success of the workshop itself?

5. Workshop publication plans

We intend to publish workshop proceedings in the IEEE digital library. If you wish to follow a different publishing plan, then describe how you intend to disseminate the workshop proceedings.

6. Workshop duration

1 or 2 day workshop?

7. History of the workshop

Have you offered this workshop before? If so, please provide a history of the venues, dates, and approximate attendance numbers.

8. Short biographies of all workshop organizers

Submission Instructions

Please submit your workshop proposal in PDF format via EasyChair.
