CALL FOR PAPERS

Second International Workshop on the Twin Peaks of Requirements and Architecture (TwinPeaks 2013)
May 21, 2013, San Francisco, USA

In conjunction with the 35th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2013)

http://re.cs.depaul.edu/twinpeaks
-------------------------------------------

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW
Separating requirements engineering and architecture design is neither feasible nor reasonable as requirements and architecture impact each other. The Twin Peaks draws attention to this synergistic relationship between requirements and architectural design. It emphasizes the need to progressively discover and specify requirements while concurrently exploring alternative architectural decisions. Bridging requirements engineering and software architecture has been explored in the requirements and architecture communities, but mostly independently. Thus, TwinPeaks 2013 provides a forum for practitioners and researchers from both communities to jointly explore the issues and challenges related to the interplay between requirements and architecture across all phases of the software development lifecycle. These challenges are particularly evident in agile and lean development environments, or when new requirements are introduced into existing and well-established architectures. The workshop will explore techniques for specifying architecturally significant requirements, for creating, and assessing architectures, and for managing and visualizing the interplay between requirements and architectures. It will also identify open research challenges for delivering robust and effective architectures that satisfy stakeholders concerns, at continually increasing levels of scale, complexity, and delivery speed.

PAPER CATEGORIES
We welcome research papers (6 to 8 pages), position papers (3 to 5 pages), experience papers (4 to 6 pages), and pedagogical papers (4-6 pages).
