Second International Workshop on Requirements Patterns (RePa’12)
Monday September 24, 2012, Chicago, USA.
In conjunction with the 20th IEEE Requirements Engineering Conference

Getting requirements right is critical to the success of just about any software development project, and yet oftentimes challenging and in need of a large amount of knowledge and experience. "Patterns" have been used to capture knowledge of software development, concerning software architectures, designs, and more recently requirements engineering too. This workshop provides an open forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas and experience, regarding pattern-based approaches to capturing, organizing, and reusing all aspects of requirements engineering-related knowledge, from both process and product perspectives.

** Scope **
RePa’12 Workshop invites two types of submissions: papers on specific patterns and technical papers. The accepted papers will be available in a proceedings published by the IEEE Digital Library.

Papers on Specific Patterns:
Submissions of specific patterns present one or more related requirements process or product patterns, including, but not limited to:

- Requirements modeling patterns
- Requirements engineering process/activities patterns
- Application/domain-specific requirements patterns
- Application/domain-independent requirements patterns
- Functional requirements (FRs) patterns
- Non-functional requirements (NFRs) patterns
- Goal patterns
- Social aspect patterns
- Scenario patterns (e.g. use cases, user stories)
- Workflow patterns
- Business patterns
- Analysis patterns
- Problem patterns (e.g. anti-patterns, mis-use patterns, fault patterns, attack patterns)
- Requirements to architecture/design mapping patterns

Technical Papers:
Submissions of technical papers include full and position research papers, experience reports, empirical studies, case studies that report findings on requirements pattern-related topics, including, but not limited to:

- Pattern capturing
- Pattern harvesting and mining
- Pattern cataloging (e.g. by categories)
- Pattern organization (e.g. by relationships such as uses, meta-pattern/occurrence, generalization/specialization, aggregation/decomposition)
- Pattern searching, identification, and selection
- Pattern reuse and application
- Pattern quality
- Pattern management
- Tool support

** Workshop Format **
This workshop is a one-day workshop consisting of three main sessions: a session for group discussion on specific requirements patterns based on a Writers' Workshop-style format, a session for presentation and discussion of technical papers, and a session for a pattern-related exercise.

Participants will learn and discuss about potentially useful requirements patterns as well as advances of requirements pattern-based approaches from both practical and research perspectives. They will also have an opportunity for hands-on experience through an exercise practicing various pattern-related activities, such as capturing, organizing, selecting and/or reusing patterns, with ideas from the accepted papers.
