EmpiRE 2011 - International Workshop on Empirical Requirements Engineering

Trento, Italy - August 30, 2011

@ Requirements Engineering 2011

http://selab.fbk.eu/empire2011/

==========================

The first International Workshop on Empirical Requirements Engineering (EmpiRE)
encourages the cross-fertilization between Requirements Engineering and
Empirical Software Engineering. On one side, EmpiRE promotes the exchange of
ideas to understand why and how empirical methods from Empirical Software
Engineering can assess existing or new approaches in Requirements Engineering.
On the other side, EmpiRE intends to push toward new evaluation techniques,
domains and problems for exercising empirical methods or building new ones.

The topics of interest of the workshop include all the concerns related to the
join of Requirements Engineering and Empirical Software Engineering and,
in particular, the following:

- Research method and evaluation techniques in requirements engineering;
- State of the art in the field of empirical studies (e.g., surveys, case
studies and experiments) in requirements engineering;
- Critical factors, properties and metrics of requirements engineering
approaches to be empirically evaluated;
- Approaches and techniques to conduct empirical studies and comparative
evaluations;
- Different types of approaches and techniques to evaluate requirements
engineering research;
- Experimental designs for empirical studies;
- Frameworks and infrastructures for experimentations;
- Definition and development of benchmarks for experimental evaluations;
- Reporting on the results of empirical studies about techniques, methods and
tools in requirements engineering;
- Lessons learned in running empirical studies and comparative evaluations;
- Identification of strengths and weaknesses of empirical and comparative
evaluation approaches;
-...

==========================

Contribution format

We solicit submissions in the following categories:

- Technical papers (max 8 pages in IEEE format). Full papers describing
empirical experiences in requirements engineering and reporting the results of
such experiences
- Position papers (max 4 pages in IEEE format). Short papers introducing the
position of the author/s on any of the topics within the scope of the workshop
or visionary papers exploiting new ideas about the contribution of the empirical
method in requirements engineering.
- Young Position papers (max 4 pages in IEEE format). Short papers written by
PhD/master students presenting the experimentation they performed/plan to
perform during their research work.

All the submissions to the workshop will be peer reviewed by three members of
the Program Committee. Acceptance will be primarily based on originality,
contribution to the area, ability to generate discussion, quality of the paper
and of the research, research completeness and maturity. Young position papers
will be reviewed, but more "helpfully" than "critically". Only original papers
not submitted to journals or other conferences will be considered. All
submissions must be in English.

All the accepted papers will be published in the IEEE digital library with the
support of the RE 2011 conference. Authors of the best papers presented at
EmpiRE 2011 will be invited to extend their work for possible inclusion in a
special issue of Journal of Software and Systems - Elsevier (under
negotiation).
