The boundaries between research, academia, industry, open (source) communities, and government, as well as those between software engineering and other areas, are of special interest, particularly if crossing them can help increase the practical impact of the RE techniques and community.
We thus particularly encourage accounts of innovative, solid research concerned with this theme. The Research Track RE'18 invites original submissions of research papers in the categories described below.
Papers that exceed the length specification (see above categories) or are not formatted correctly will be desk-rejected without review.
It is acceptable to reference additional content (i.e., data repositories, source code for open source tools, full protocols of empirical studies, etc.) by providing a corresponding URL hosted on an institutional, archive-grade site.
In their initial submission, the authors are invited to consider reserving some space (about 0.5 to 0.75 page) in order to more easily implement the changes requested by the reviewers for the final version.
Requirements For A Research Paper
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: – Requirements elicitation, prioritization, and negotiation – Design thinking and open innovation – Innovation through creativity – Crowdsourcing and social media – Social, cultural, and cognitive factors – User feedback and usage monitoring – Capturing and understanding users’ needs – Complex systems – Product lines and value chains – Software ecosystems, artificial intelligence, big data, and cloud technologies – Requirements Engineering for Smart Cities, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Systems of Systems – Learning from practice – Transferring technology from academia to industry – Transferring technology across industries – Transferring technology across domains – Identifying best practices – Improving productivity We recommend that authors structure their paper’s abstract along the explicit coverage of context, objectives, methods, and results and conclusions (max. Section keywords may be used in the abstract itself but they are not mandatory.
The 26th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE'18) is the premier international forum for researchers, practitioners, educators, and students to present and discuss the most recent research results, innovations, experiences, and concerns in the discipline of requirements engineering.
The RE'18 theme is Crossing Boundaries and Increasing Impact.
The goal of double-blind reviewing is to ensure that the reviewers can read and review your paper without having to know who any of the authors are, and hence avoid related bias.
It is not about making the authors’ identity undiscoverable.
